Leadership of Chinese Private Enterprises: Insights an d Interviews
Series: Palgrave Studies in Chinese Management
This original book presents in-depth research into thirteen successful Chinese private enterprises through interviews with their founder-entrepreneurs. While Chinese economic growth has focused primarily on governmental policies and institutional factors,Leadership of Chinese Private Enterprises proposes that the success of these firms was primarily due to the ‘visible hands’ of these entrepreneurs. The authors present insights into the managerial realities of four separate industries- Financial and insurance, IT and e-commerce, construction and real estate, and consumer goods. Through a critical evaluation of interviews, this book identifes the managerial recipe fo r entrepreneurial success in competitive and inhospitable environments and offers a model of private rm leadership and leadership principles that guide their strategies and relationships.
