Management of Engineering and Technology
China in recent times has emerged as a world superpower in both economic as well as military power; this is a reality facing the rest of the world. China is a country of many contrasts because politically it is run by a central communist party but in economic terms it is a capitalist type of society and as such no other industrialized country has this type of governing model. China’s central government dictates and decides which industries are needed and pursues them vigorously: allocating resources, reducing bureaucratic impediments, even creating incentives for foreign partnerships to emerge. This type of management works well for well established enterprises such as manufacturing where repetitive and well-known principles govern its execution. In this report, we focus on the Research and Development (R&D) aspects of China’s growth and its emergence from an imitator to an innovator in the high-tech industry.
