Ma Huateng and Tencent

China's economic rise and influence has been one of the most significant developments in the global economy of recent times. A driving force behind this expansion has been the private entrepreneurs and companies of China, some of which have literally redefined the economic and business landscape, both inside and outside of China.

Under Ma's leadership, Tencent has moved into web portals, social networks, multi-player games and e-commerce, making the company today an Internet powerhouse and China's number one brand.

The Haier Model

Since its origins in the 1920s as a refrigerator factory in Qingdao supplying the Chinese market, Haier has risen to become a major multinational company, overtaking the likes of Whirlpool and LG, to become the world’s leading manufacturer of household appliances today, with revenues of $30 billion. How did Haier achieve this amazing feat?

This book examines Haier’s organizational transformation, which can be traced back to 1984 when Zhang Ruimin (Haier’s current CEO) joined the company, and which became the essence of Haier’s sustained competitive advantage. In particular, it looks at the ͞RDHY Win-Win Model of Employee-Customer Integration͟, the latest management practice in Haier, which has had a profound effect on the company’s performance, and which has captured the attention of academics and managers around the world.

Pax Japonica

Japan, the world's third largest economy and its largest creditor nation, has been in crisis for more than two decades. Its economy has been depressed or in recession in much of that period, its banking sector in a critical state, and its public sector burdened by recurring fiscal deficits and mounting debt. Today, the hegemonic role in global trade and financial markets has been assumed by the USA and China. Yet, this book argues that a possible future Pax Japonica - one in which Japan will overcome its paralyzing debt and once again play a leading role in global finance - can become a reality. Leading international strategist Takeo Harada provides new and astounding insight into Japan's hidden role as designated controller of large - often secret - funds kept for the purpose of rescuing humankind from ultimate disasters. For this reason, Japan's role in the global economy can never be under-estimated and remains critical to its progress.

Wholegarment

In 1962, Masahiro Shima founded Shima Seiki, with the aim of developing a fully automated seamless glove-knitting machine. Following this success, the company expanded into flat knitting machines. However, the age of the computer brought a whole new era for Shima Seiki. By committing to computerization in its mainstream products, Shima Seiki gradually began to stand apart from its competitors. Shima Seiki's focus on computer-aided knit design and programming, in fact led to a revolution in the fashion industry.
Written by the inventor himself, this book looks at how Masahiro Shima developed both the technology and philosophy to enable his company to be market leaders in industrial knitting machines - and fundamentally change the fashion industry. This culminated in the launch of the company's Wholegarment knitting machine in 1995, which altered forever the way knitted garments are produced, and which today is used by fashion manufacturers across the world
