IMD OCTOBER 2011
REAL LEARNING@IMD
Dear Reader,

One hundred years ago this month, modern China was born. This landmark event paved the way for China’s emergence as a global power. IMD’s Team China marks the occasion in a special feature that explores business in China.

Additionally, fall is a busy time at IMD, and we are pleased to present you with many other thought pieces below. Highlights include an entrepreneurship study on what business creators really want and putting an end to the age old Leader -vs- Manager debate. Enjoy!
Best regards,

The IMD Webletter Team
