The Cambridge Centre for Chinese Management (CCCM) is a research centre based in Cambridge Judge Business School. It has been established to study unique business phenomena in China and the management practices and strategies pursued by Chinese firms.

In the past three decades, Chinese firms have been actively learning from their more advanced Western counterparts on how to establish and run a modern enterprise. In recent years, a growing number of Chinese firms such as Huawei, Alibaba, Tencent, JD, Lenovo, DJI, Haier and so on have succeeded in catching up or even surpassing their western "teachers". 

Most of these successful Chinese firms have invented management practices which are significantly different from those of the western firms. Some of them have created a hybrid management system that combines the strengths of both the western management philosophy and practices and that of the Chinese one. These Chinese management practices have not only contributed to the rapid rise of Chinese firms, but also provided fertile ground for theoretical exploration which may genuinely contribute to the enrichment and development of management theories in general. 

Research specifics

More specifically, the Cambridge Centre for Chinese Management explores the following research questions:

  • What are the approaches that Chinese firms have adopted that allow them to ascend to the top in such a rapid pace?
  • What unique management and institutional innovations have Chinese firms pursued?
  • What should be the effective strategies for Chinese firms to further expand globally?
  • Equally importantly, what should the Western companies do in responding to the rise of Chinese firms?
  • On a more macro level, what will the global business world look like with Chinese firms as a major force? 
  • What new management theories can be developed based on the experiences of Chinese enterprises?

Even though successful companies share similar traits irrespective of their cultural background, Chinese firms do tend to have a different mind-set, philosophy and approach in managing people and business. They have also taken on board strategies learnt from many of their global counterparts and pushed the boundaries of these approaches to new levels. Therefore, the rise of Chinese firms represents a very promising research opportunity for business scholars.

中国管理研究中心(Cambridge Centre for Chinese Management)是剑桥大学嘉治商学院下属的一个学术研究中心。设立这个中心的目的是研究中国企业的最佳战略和实践,从而总结出基于中国管理经验上的管理理论,为当代管理思想和理论的发展做出贡献。在过去三十年间,中国经济飞速发展,越来越多的中国企业完成了从学习西方企业到赶超西方企业的转变。这些企业在追赶过程中逐步总结出了一系列成功的管理经验和实践,既有西方管理理念的影响,也有中国文化和哲学的特色。这些中国管理经验为理论研究提供了丰富的素材,可以成为当代管理理论的一个重要研究方向。

这个研究中心的主要研究人员来自于剑桥大学嘉治商学院。它也会邀请其他大学及研究机构的顶尖学者参与到对中国管理问题的研究项目中。它的核心宗旨是对中国管理现象及问题进行实证研究,而非停留在表层的象牙塔式研究。这就要求研究人员深入到企业内部,对其进行长期的跟踪,并在此过程中透彻地把握现象和问题的本质,然后再进行将研究成果理论化的努力。从某种意义上讲,这个研究中心推崇的是管理学大师彼得德鲁克的研究方法,并认为只有这种深植于商业现象上的学术研究才能真正产生价值。

此中心除了学术研究,还会积极和中国和西方的顶尖企业建立深入的联系,并希望通过这种和产业界的多方面合作更好地选择研究方向,确定研究的课题和具体案例。同时,在和产业界合作的过程中也将全球最成功的管理经验和实践进行系统性的总结,并将这些经验在中国管理中心这个平台上和相关企业共享。除了和产业界的合作,此中心还会和中国及其他国家的政策部门进行广泛合作,力求中心的学术成果能够为中国及其他国家的政策制定者提供有益的思路。
