if you look at chinese IPOs , most of them have 1 founder only, (baidu, huawei, sohu...)
at the same time TI got 4 founders, Intel 3, google 2...
very clear , most chinese don't know /can't find a real partner.
Huawei is not the next TI. It's the next Cisco. Today.
I have been told in both Taiwan and China there is a feeling that everyone wants to be the boss and this gets in the way of the M&A needed to build large companies with broad portfolios that have a deep bench of crack divisional leaders working under on CEO.
@Echo, you are still missing the point, it's not about character, it's about true love, between VPs , between you and your boss.
It's like a real family, the ignorance of many chinese such as you is one of the reason of this situation.
yeah right, I said in general.
what impressed me most in recent years is Richard Chang of SMIC, a TI veteran, 1st CEO of SMIC.
the 1st thing (maybe) when he setup smic is setting up a bible group in his home.
so not all chinese are idiots, they ll learn the tricks as koreans.
Human character can be changed. More and more chinese have an open mind, especially many of them have abroad study or working experience, this will change their way of thinking. And it will change the way which you are thinking..
So.. Don't be too absolute.
Good Part of it is atleast China is attempting or trying to understand what it takes us to become TI or Qualcomm. Sure, some day they have a chance to get there. As they pointed internal co-operation is the key element rather than in fighting and openness in communication with their stake holders.
