China leadership report: the new generation of high tech leaders

SPRIE and Heidrick & Struggles, the premier global executive search and leadership consulting firm, have just released a report that is the product of their collaborative research project over the past 18 months on leadership in Chinese high tech companies.

The report, entitled "Getting Results in China: How China's Tech Executives are Molding a New Generation of Leaders," is based on extensive interviews with many top executives in China's high tech industries--both domestic companies and multinationals with considerable presence in China, as well as start-up companies from the last several years.

"Getting Results in China" looks at what the top Chinese executives are doing on the ground to address their most significant challenges in acquiring leadership talent. Chinese high tech industries are facing talent gaps at every level and competition for skilled leaders is keen; the increased presence of multinationals is only exacerbating this crisis.

The findings in this report will provide insights on:

  • How pioneering executive leaders in China have adapted multinational strategies to acheive results in their organizations;
  • What the leading companies in China are doing to come out ahead in the competition for leadership talent;
  • Which critical leadership skills are most needed and also hardest to find in the current Chinese high tech playing field.

"Getting Results in China" will be of interest to Chinese executives, leaders of multinational companies operating in China and investors in Chinese enterprises across all industry sectors who want to understand the talent approaches that are getting results in a challenging environment.
