Can the West learn from China?

In Dragon Tactics, Aldo Spaanjaars and Sandrine Zerbib make a compelling case, that in a rapidly digitising and increasingly uncertain and unpredictable global business environment, there is much to learn from successful Chinese entrepreneurs.

Drawing from their individual nearly 30 years’ experience in China gained in CEO, COO, and Founder positions in multinational corporations such as Adidas China and Lacoste China as well as domestic Chinese enterprises such as Fosun International (private equity) and Baozun (ecommerce), the authors reveal the secrets of how Chinese entrepreneurs became and stayed successful in this hyper competitive and unpredictable market.

Explaining the reasons behind the success of Chinese enterprises with concrete examples, industry insights, and direct commentary from some of China’s leading entrepreneurs, Dragon Tactics pulls back the curtain and reveals applicable strategies for success. Lessons that are highly relevant beyond China’s borders.

Dealing with political uncertainty, fickle consumers, changing economic contexts and rapid digitization, Chinese companies have developed management skills to thrive in such uncertainty. Dragon Tactics allows users to understand exactly how they do this. Taking a practical approach with actionable examples, this book is a great reference point for creating success and shaping your business in an increasingly unpredictable world.
