Customer Centricity

In 2012, the Chinese company Huawei Technologies overtook Ericsson to become the world’s largest telecommunications equipment manufacturer, firmly establishing itself on the world business map. Today, it has over 180,000 employees worldwide and achieved record profits in 2014 of $7.3 billion. This book provides a deep and clear understanding of Huawei’s management philosophy and strategy. Central to this is the company’s orientation towards customers – that customer satisfaction is the base criterion for measuring Huawei’s work. The author also examines Huawei’s strategy for long-term growth, and especially the principles related to organizational design and operations, the constant improvement of end-to-end procedures, and the management of change. In short, the book reveals how to manage and grow a world-class high-tech company.

Dong Mingzhu & Gree

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. Dong Mingzhu is one such entrepreneur. Gree Electric is one of the powerhouses of the air-conditioning industry, and owes its success to the entrepreneurial and management tenacity of Dong. As a young widow, aged 36, she travelled south and began work at Gree as an ordinary salesperson. Four years later, in 1994, she became head of sales. By 1996, she was deputy president, and by 2001, president of Gree. During this time, Dong challenged and transformed industry norms through her innovations in sales, service and employee policies. This is the story of one of China's most inspiring and innovative business leaders.

The Entrepreneurial Myth

The Entrepreneurial Myth is a timely challenge to redesign entrepreneurship for the health and wealth of all. Entrepreneurs are deified as all-powerful, never-fail gurus who shoulder our collective necessity for enterprise. Promoted through education, politics and media, the mythical entrepreneur bears little relation to the messy reality of running a small business. Based on analysis spanning 30 years, this book challenges the pervasive misrepresentation of business creators in the UK, US, India and China. It examines how The Entrepreneurial Myth damages entrepreneur's mental health, skews public policy, amplifies business failure rates and undermines global economies.
Hear a heartfelt call to business people and politicians, legislators and educators, to redesign enterprise for the next generation. Help strip The Entrepreneurial Myth of its power and recalibrate business success. Seize this vital opportunity to boost entrepreneurial wellbeing and resilience. This book is a timely invitation to build a more reflective, more effective entrepreneurship for the health and wealth of all.

Dedication

In 2012, the Chinese company Huawei Technologies overtook Ericsson to become the world’s largest telecommunications equipment manufacturer, firmly establishing itself on the world business map. Today, it has over 170,000 employees worldwide and in 2014 the company generated a remarkable profit of $5.5 billion. Whilst research and development and the technology that results from it are core drivers of Huawei’s success, the company’s amazing growth is also determined by its human resource strategy. This is based on a “customer-first” attitude, the belief that obtaining opportunities is through hard work and, above all, “a dedication to do the best in anything we do”. How Huawei promotes this dedication amongst its workforce is the subject of this important book. Through original incentive systems, employee ownership and the mentality to act like a boss, Huawei has managed to create a culture of dedication that has become the bedrock of its growth today.

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
