Management in China

China has gone through an almost unthinkable development since reforms started in 1978. Key strategies were 1) Focus on growth, 2) Excellence in manufacturing, 3) Collaboration with foreign companies, 4) Private enterprise in China, and 5) Massive focus on education.

Despite success, the Chinese government and visionary business people realise that the strategy that made China successful in the past, will not necessarily make China successful in the future.

Chairman George Lee at an early stage realised that Chinese business cannot continue to rely primarily on manufacturing; service and knowledge business will become even more important for the living standard of Chinese people to continue to grow. Chairman Lee therefore established the DeTao Masters Academy to engage masters within different fields from all over the world in this development. Each master will open a master studio within the Academy to serve as an educational hub and as a basis for sharing knowledge with Chinese business and society in general.

I am in the process of setting up the Detao Master studio of Leadership and Strategy. This week, executives from 24 Chinese comanies will participate in the first DeTao Master Class on Leadership and Strategy to be held at the Beijing University. We will identify the challenges that Chinese businesses will face in the years to come while building world-class service and knowledge businesses and we will discuss how to move forward building on the strengths and the traditions of Chinese society. That’s where UNBOSS comes in: China is not only about money; it is about values and harmony. China in not only about the individual; it is about the family and the community, and China is open to engage others in it’s development process: i.e. an unlimited approach.

I feel deeply honoured for being involved in this important work. China has more than fifty Million managers and to reach even one per cent means half a Million managers to be trained. This would take decades if we applied a conventional training approach, but in the spirit of UNBOSS we should engage the wider community in this task. The good news are that the DeTao Masters Academy also includes some of the world’s best experts in education and distance learning. It can be done, but we need to start today..

    Hi Lars,

    How can this NOT inspire me. Can we talk? I have been travelling regularly to China for almost 2 years and have found considerable interest in Danish Leadership and in Direct Leadership model. Would love to explore if we could collaborate.

    Great and inspiring post!

    China is very unique and exciting market for both the citizens and all of us from the Western world. The Chinese people work a lot, so I don’t think they have time for an education while taking care of family and career. An opportunity could be an online class like a comany called Probana is providing in Denmark. I took one of their classes in mindfulness and is consisted of both classes and online education. It helped me to get educated while taking care of my children and my career :-)

    Can’t wait to see what China is gonna be like in the future!
