Title: Engaging China: Lessons Learnt and Emerging Research Opportunities

Abstract

With the growing prominence of China in the global economy, the importance of studying Chinese IT management is growing. IT provides global businesses with a useful and cost-effective means of extending their offerings to the massive Chinese market. Yet, the failure of IT giants such as eBay and Google in establishing a foothold in China illustrates the need for a better understanding of the strategies for competing in the Chinese market.

In this seminar, Shan Pan will present a number of pertinent themes and best practices in Chinese IT management based on the case studies of IT implementation and use that he conducted in China. He will also discuss a number of lessons learnt from the conduct of IS research in this unique context, as well as the research opportunities emerging from the region.
