“Lessons in Communication” Book Presentation
As China’s development continues at a rapid rate, more foreign direct investment continues to pour into the country. While expatriate managers attempt to implement proven, winning Western management theories in China, they are learning that implementation in China is far different from the techniques used back home. Unknown to most of them, it is vital to have a strong understanding of Chinese culture, history and norms in order to penetrate the Chinese business market.
This timely, relevant book entitled Lessons in Communication discusses the successes and failures of several dozen foreigners in China as they navigate the emerging business landscape, specifically as related to cultural differences and communication gaps. Furthermore, Lessons in Communication presents several case studies and aims to provide the reader with insight, value and a distinct perspective into the rich, Chinese culture that permeates every aspect of life in the country.
