Huawei has become China’s most prominent multinational company and a leader in the ICT sector. The Book "The Management Transformation of Huawei: From Humble Beginnings to Global Leadership" written by Prof. Xiaobo WU, Prof. Can Huang, and Prof. Bin Guo from Zhejiang University, China and Prof. Johann Peter Murmann from Universität St Gallen, Switzerland, will be published at Cambridge University Press in April, 2020. 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.
Each chapter in this book has got commentaries from leading scholars like Prof. David Teece from University of California (Berkeley), USA, Prof. Arie Y. Lewin from Duke University, USA, Prof. Jaeyong Song from Seoul National University, Korea, Prof. Carl F. Fey from Aalto University, Finland. The insights presented in the book will be particularly interesting for academics in the field of strategy, management, and business history.
