As globalization continues to proliferate into more industries, and capital markets around the world become more efficient, achieving sustainable growth and attractive investment returns have become more challenging than ever for many traditional businesses.

The rapid emergence of China as a major economic power has produced fundamental changes across the global competitive landscape and the supply chain structure for many industries. Such developments have in turn produced new paradigms, business models, and competitive strategies for many.

The China Factor represents serious threats, in numerous ways, to incumbents and industries that have strong inertia to change, but it also represents new opportunities for those who are willing to adapt quickly, develop strategies that can stand the test of time, and have strong execution capabilities.
