When I started teaching in China in 1985, I became quickly aware of the total lack of case material on China and case material relevant to China. Harvard University material, the typical business-school professor's approach, did not get me far. But by developing expertise over time and getting to know many companies operating in China, I developed an insight into the strategic and operational issues both local as well as foreign companies run into in China. This enabled me to develope a popular MBA electie, Doing Business in China. Working together with my students, we started developing relevant case material, and many of those efforts are contained in this book.
The 20 cases here span various industries from serices to fast-moving consumer goods. Some of the companies are local Chinese enterprises while others are foreign direct investment (FDI) enterprises. Collectively, the issues raised in these cases cover most of the strategic and operational issues companies that operate in China run into. As such, they form a comprehensive set of illustrations around which a course on doing business in China can be deeloped for MBAs as well as executives.
Not all cases included are success stories, but a ballance between successful and not-so-successful companies is maintained so as to highlight the dos and don'ts of operating in China. In light of this, the casebook also provides stimulating reading for managers working in China.
