The book takes the reader through the processes of market entry, marketing and managing operations in this unique social and cultural context, and concludes with the 'five pillars' model of successful business in greater China.Doing Business in China is a general introduction to managing business enterprises in China. Aimed specifically at Western and non-Chinese businesses and managers, particularly those with limited experience of China, this book offers a general framework for understanding Chinese business culture, along with a guide for acquiring further knowledge on the country. It will be an invaluable resource for students of international business and management and practitioners alike. Contrary to global business paradigms, this book shows that business in China is different to business in the West, and explains why.
