My research has broadly examined how Chinese management has evolved as China's economy develops. Where traditional Chinese management methods have been a good fit for firms engaged in low cost mass production, these traditional management methods appear incompatible with an increasing need to manage professionals and knowledge workers. Specific research topics I have published which are related to this broad issue include creativity, teams, conflict, and empowerment.
