Editorial Reviews


'Chinese entrepreneurs have made remarkable progress by following the Western business model. At the same time, through their diligence and practicality they have become more mature and created their own unique Chinese business model. In 'China's Management Revolution,' Mr. Charles-Edouard Bouée sums up the features of the Chinese management model, which integrates Western business culture with Chinese business wisdom. It's a great contribution to the enrichment of the global management model.' - JIN Zhiguo, Chairman of Tsingtao Brewery Co., Ltd.

'This book is a genuine attempt in unraveling the dynamics of what's called "Chinese-style management", against the backdrop of China's rise as an emerging economic power. In writing this book Charles-Edouard Bouée has done a good service as well offer an insider's perspective for international businessmen who want to do business in China. As a leading strategist, he understands that he is in the business of offering good and practical solutions.' - Lifen Zhang, Associate Editor, Financial Times, Editor-in-Chief, FTChinese.com

'Eloquently written, this book presents important new insights for management theory and practice from China where private entrepreneurs' wholehearted embrace of the US management style has given way to a distinctly Chinese way of doing business. Bouée, a French investment banker with an American academic degree and head of a European consultancy's operations in China, brings a profound understanding of different management styles to his exploration of this shift.' - Soumitra Dutta, Professor of Business and Technology, Academic Director, eLab, INSEAD

'China has been delivering economic miracles. However, it remains a mystery how Chinese enterprises are managed. While the Chinese endeavor to learn from Western experience, they have retained their unique management philosophy and culture. We should therefore try to understand the diverse management styles of Chinese companies as they are playing a more active role on the global stage. This book is a timely guide for Western readers to help them understand the truth of Chinese management.' - Ning Xiangdong, Professor, School of Economics and Management, and Director, Center for Corporate Governance, Tsinghua University

Format: Hardcover
I happened to discover China's Management Revolution because I recently read "Green Growth, Green Profit", written by the Roland Berger Strategy Consultants. So I visited the website of the company and the book and so I saw this book.

I'm really interested in economies and especially in exciting developments in the world business.

China's Management Revolution is written by Charles-Edouard Bouée, who is the Asia chief of the Roland Berger (I got this information from the book cover). So my expectations were really high because I thought, this man has to know of what he's talking about.

I surely wasn't disappointed. This book gives a great overview about China's recent past and the status quo of the business situation in the country. Bouée describes, that the Chinese managers are on the cusp to a completely new, revolutionary management style. Really exciting is the fact, that this management style already has concise attributes like natural, mutual and disciplined. But it's still dynamic and the end of this development isn't yet in sight.

Bouée recognized, that the Chinese managers care more about the spirit, the land and the energy of China. With spirit he means, that the managers are really interested in the history and culture of China and that they try to tranportate these atributes into the future. By land Bouée says the managers take care of the whole country, the whole society and try to act responsible in every way. And energy means, that Chinese managers do not act like selfish people. They step back and taking care of the company and the family.

The book includes many more interesting and exciting topics, but this would be way too much this review.

The book "China's Management Revolution" is one of the first books ever, which concentrates itself on Chinese management topics and strategies only. Mr. Charles-Edouard Bouée, head of an European consultancy's operations in China, takes the reader on a journey through the new management models in the Chinese economic.

He shows, that the identification with Americas management styles has decreased in the Chinese management sector and a new, chinese management style has been developed.
The economic climate in China is very rough and highly accelerated. So the chinese managers have to be very flexible and have to find their own balance in this turbulent economic system.

Very positive is that Bouée doesn't stick on creating a general image of Chinas management system. He analyzes several regions of China and is able to paint a very specific picture of the new Chinese management model in his book China's Management Revolution.

China's Management Revolution is the first book, which describes this new Chinese management style. The experience of Mr. Bouée's work in Asia gives the reader a very deep insight into complexe themes in Chinese management styles and culture.

Format: Hardcover
To many Westerners, China represents the impenetrable East. From its diverse languages and its ancient philosophies to its modern-day economic boom, China simultaneously tantalizes and perplexes Westerners, particularly in the way it conducts business. The Chinese management model, with its emphasis on harmony and reciprocity, and its lack of long-range strategic planning, often makes little sense to Westerners. That's all the more reason to send kudos to Shanghai-based business consultant Charles-Edouard Bouée for this outstanding job of explaining the Chinese system to Westerners. His informed analysis, though dry in parts and somewhat repetitive, provides an important context for understanding how the globe's most populous nation will thrive in the future. China seems poised to set the world's economic pace, and getAbstract believes Bouée's book is a great place to start learning about how China does business.
