Asian economies today command much attention from scholars and practitioners, yet they continue to face crises and challenges such as globalization, regional conflict, pressure for greater transparency and environmental protection to name but a few. Asian Businesses in a Turbulent Environment explores how Asian firms cope with these challenges, and the impact that rising above them will have on their growth prospects. Starting with a conceptual analysis of crises and their impact on local markets and societies, this book examines leadership styles for conflict management, as well as strategies adopted by various Asian firms including the location choice and entry mode, knowledge transfer, cultural shifts, social capital and knowledge development, and environmental management in the supply chain.
