This book is based on the course that I have been teaching at SIMBA (Shanghai International MBA) since its launch in 2001. This course is extremely well received by Chinese students. They understand the true value of the teachings which cover the overall background in which they are going to work for the next 30 or 40 years. There is a real expectation, and not only by Chinese students, for a global understanding of the business world. Specialized expertise is, naturally, required in an MBA course but there is also a need for a synthetic point of view which puts each specialized expertise into its correct perspective. The book provides global managers of all countries, potentially global leaders, with basic understandings and proper tools for analysis of complex situations. It is divided into four parts, each part answering a key question: 1)Part 1, "visions", answers the questions of " how is our world changing", therefore how should global leaders look at it and use their understanding of key trends ( so-called “Megatrends”) for best business decisions. 2)Part 2, "Shaping a new world" explains how major events, often referred to as "crises", are changing the two main "modern" civilizations, the Western one and the Asian one. This part will show how economic crises are shaping a new Asia while political crises are shaping a new West. 3)Part 3 will "revisit the concept of globalization" and point out the key issues which are at stake.
