John Saee – Project Management in China

China is the world’s largest emerging economy and the most preferred destination of foreign direct investment (FDI) in recent years, China is driving contemporary global economy. As a consequence, most leading Multinational Corporations (MNCs) are increasingly setting up R&D operations in China (Li and Zhong, 2004). While China’s physical and technological infrastructure is increasingly transforming at lightning speed, but institutional and cultural realities are much slower to change, which presents huge challenges for project consultants, project managers and teams (Wong, 2008). In the interview with The PM Channel Dr John Saee describes the important characteristics of the Chinese culture and particularly on communication context.  He also explains why western method in Project Management is not applicable in China.
