Will 'Chinese HR' Hamper US Companies?
Why might Chinese organizations have a less-advanced and less strategically integrated approach to HR?
A fascinating perspective.
One of my trend suggestions a few years ago was an "Asian stall" where Chinese growth stalls due to a lack of the human resources needed to continue growth. Namely management talent. However, what fascinates me is the double hit taking place... a limited number of skilled leaders combined with a predominance of a singular strategic approach...
And... the "low cost operator" organizations are the largest organizations What does that imply?...This is where most Chinese managerial talent is developing.
For me the question was: Could China develop the broad base of educated and experienced management needed to fullfill talent demand at a sustained growth rate? At some point China would stall. Eventually effective managerial leadership supply would catch up.
But then there is the double hit... as a "low cost operators" the broad base of managerial talent may challenge the shift now talking place. Many global organizations are rethinking sourcing and China faces a need to diversify strategic approaches. This will happen. Its only a matter of time.
One last thought... as Western organizations rushed to move operations that make and deliver to low cost operators -- what happened to our own managerial skills?
