This is the first textbook of a systematic study of oriental management. Oriental management is a modern management science with research focus on theories and practices of both ancient and modern management in East Asia. It is a new subject mainly based on the theoretical essence and practical cases of Chinese management, and supplemented with western management and overseas Chinese management. It has GÇ£three core valuesGÇ¥, namely GÇ£putting people in the first place, regarding morality as priority, conducting oneself in the service of othersGÇ¥. Oriental management has gone through three stages during the past 35 years: first stage saw the application of ancient theories to modern practice, the application of western theories to Chinese practice and their synthesis; the second stage was a period of theoretical innovation, when the idea of the GÇ£three core valuesGÇ¥ was holistically presented and the school of oriental management was set up; the third stage was a period of enhancing influence and developing the school, from undergraduate up to doctoral level.The book discusses the differences between western management and oriental management. Management is both an art and a science. Eastern management exhibits more of the former while Western management exhibits more of the latter. Oriental management aims to combine the positive features of both approaches.
