New Book: The Management Transformation of Huawei

By Xiaobo Wu, Johann Peter Murmann, Can Huang, and Bin Guo

The book is coming out in April 2020. 

Huawei has become China’s most prominent multinational company and a leader in the ICT sector. Given unprecedented access to the company, the authors of this book examine the management transformation of Huawei from its inception in 1987 until 2019, observing in detail not only the creation of its organizational routines but also the breaking of routines across most major functional areas: management, product development, HR, supply chain, finance, R&D, intellectual property, and international business. “Dynamic capabilities” are central to theories of competitive advantage and this book highlights Huawei as an ideal case study for the successful implementation of change routines and change-supporting values. The chapters cover all the major change initiatives the firm has undertaken since 1996 to import best practices from the west, with the help of consultants. The insights presented in the book will be particularly interesting for academics in the field of strategy, management, and business history.
