Webinar Dragon Tactics


Even before the conflict in the Ukraine, the world had entered a new era of uncertainty. Covid 19
disruptions merely added to climate change challenges, a new geopolitical situation with the rise of China
and rapid digitization. This powerful combination of factors of uncertainty is putting increasing strain on
traditional business operating models.
Dragon Tactics, written by 2 China veterans – Aldo Spaanjaars and Sandrine Zerbib, makes the case that
Chinese entrepreneurs have only known uncertainty. They have grown their business in an environment
that has taught them to thrive in chaos and overcome constant challenges of uncertainty towards
converting China into a fast-paced consumer society and a powerhouse of innovation and survival.
Dragon Tactics, How Chinese Entrepreneurs Thrive in Uncertainty, not only unveils the secrets of how
Chinese companies operate and stay competitive in the midst of uncertainty but also provides a clear
understanding of the cultural forces driving the business practices that otherwise confound outsiders.
There are many lessons for Western leaders to learn — a new set of quite unexpected but proven business
management skills, how they came to be, and why they work — to not only succeed within China, but
more importantly, to better navigate an increasingly uncertain and volatile world far beyond China’s
