As China grows, massive hurdles loom
After an unprecedented three decades of 10% annual growth in gross domestic product (GDP), in which hundreds of millions of its people were lifted out of poverty as the country became the workshop of the world, China faces a more difficult second act.

The chain starts with idea generation, but then moves to prioritising and funding ideas, to converting those ideas to products and finally to diffusing those products and business practices across the company.  Hansen says that managers who are constantly working to come up with new ideas when there are other problems in the chain actually may be causing more problems. “What you’re essentially doing is pumping more ideas into a ...
