THE 2nd WEBINAR OF A SERIES
Applying the Lessons of Haier's Rendanheyi beyond China
Becoming an Entrepreneurial Ecosystem Enabling Organisation
In this second webinar, we explore how key elements and principles of Haier’s model of organising have been adopted by Western companies that have been previously acquired from the Chinese giant.
We draw general conclusions about how the Rendanheyi—and the more general movement of management transformation of which it is an expression—can provide potential answers to the questions of organizing in the 21st Century, beyond China.
We hear directly from the experience of GE Appliances & Haier Europe—through the voice of their leaders—and how they've done so far.
In the opening, we also hear directly from Haier’s CEO Zhang Ruimin: in an exclusive video interview (embedded in this page below) in which he replies to some of the questions that emerged in the previous webinar of the series (catch up with that here).
