42 Rules for Driving Success with BooksIf you manage sourcing relationships with Chinese companies, then you need to know what 20 successful executives have learned about how to manage vendor/supplier relationships in China.

If you outsource manufacturing or other functions to China, then you should know that most America companies go into business in China without knowing the rules. You don’t have to make the same mistakes – learn from those who have gone before you.

Doing business in China is tougher than you think. Not only is the culture vastly different, but it will be a few years before the majority of manufacturers are up to world standards. In the meantime, competitive pressures and economic efficiencies are driving more and more companies into China.

Successful business dealings in China are based on a completely different set of cultural, social, economic and political rules. In some cases, there are no rules – which makes it even tougher to know what to do and what not to do.

The best way to quickly come up to speed is to learn the rules from the experience of others.
