About this book

The authors review Chinese values and characteristics using Western strategic thinking to understand the new perspective. This book will enable the global practitioner, Western or Eastern, to develop this new world-view and to avoid only taking leads from global standardization, especially of regulatory and legal environments.

About the authors

Alex Mackinnon has extensive organizational experience 'East of Suez' – in the Middle East, India and Pakistan, in Japan, in Taiwan, Hongkong and China, in Malaysia, in New Zealand and Australia. He has written on the 1997 Asian crisis for The Scotsman, on Chinese strategy in Management Decision and regularly lectures at Jiaotong University in Shanghai. His management research on Chinese global expansion was awarded a PhD in 2005. His consultancy activities focus on China and its overseas adaptation, linking actual business practice with strategic thinking.

Barnaby Powell is a Chinese son-in-law and veteran of development banking in East and South-East Asia (with Singer& Friedlander and Private Investment Company for Asia.) He has also served as Secretary-General of the European Chamber of Commerce in Taiwan, as initial Director of the Asia-Invest Programme for the European Commission and as a business consultant in East-West cultural intermediation.
