On the advantages and disadvantages of Chinese enterprises' innovation ability

compared with their overseas counterparts, Chinese local enterprises have great advantages in innovation competition, especially in incremental innovation, but they are still temporarily at a disadvantage in "big me" innovation such as innovation management

three innovation advantages of local enterprises

an important advantage of Chinese enterprises is that Chinese large enterprises have great enthusiasm and desire to follow up quickly. Because traditionally, large enterprises are often very conservative, afraid of risks, poor at learning, and used to making articles under ready-made conditions. However, some large Chinese enterprises are very advanced. While engaging in old businesses, they are very good at acquiring the new capabilities needed to carry out new businesses. While many other enterprises are still exploring the existing manufacturing and marketing potential, they are already developing new capabilities needed in the future. It is extremely difficult to maintain a balance between the two, but my research in China shows that if late dyeing can grasp this balance, enterprises often succeed in both incremental and radical innovation

another potential advantage of Chinese enterprises is their understanding of the local environment. If this understanding can be translated into a deep understanding of Chinese consumers, it will become a very important advantage. However, my research shows that few R & D departments of Chinese enterprises can translate customer information into new ideas for designing and developing new products according to market needs. Although there are some successful examples in this regard, such as bright dairy and Shanghai General Motors, the vast majority of enterprises are still in the backward stage in the field of innovation

Chinese enterprises need a strong market awareness to promote innovation, but this ability has yet to be fully developed. The third advantage of Chinese enterprises is the cost-effectiveness of their innovation - mainly driven by years of accumulated manufacturing experience. Another driving factor is the large number of college graduates who enter the R & D and engineering teams every year. Although they are inexperienced, they are generally of high quality and ability

as Huawei's effective R & D model shows, this is a competitive weapon. In order to effectively use this talent team, Chinese enterprises need to develop the ability to manage R & D personnel and other knowledge-based employees, the ability to build cross functional teams, and the ability to cultivate a market-oriented R & D culture. Of the above three abilities, the last one may be the most important

the danger faced by Chinese enterprises is that if they do not have these management skills, they will soon lose their cost-effectiveness. The tensile testing machine of Jinan experimental machine factory has the advantage of testing different materials. Indeed, foreign-funded enterprises are catching up in this regard. It is a good proof that the operating cost of Dell personal computers manufactured in China is lower than that of Lenovo

innovation management ability is a weakness

nowadays, few local enterprises can righteously claim that they have strong innovation management ability in their respective fields like some western enterprises. Only Lenovo seems to have the leading system expertise in developing and implementing mass production ready processes for fiber-reinforced lightweight structures with the goal of innovation and economic positioning The strategic intention of developing the above innovative culture

however, the reason why I say that Chinese enterprises are "temporarily" at a disadvantage in some areas is that the main source of these disadvantages is the stage of China's economic development, rather than the inherent deficiency of creativity and innovation culture, as some overseas analysts say

the first problem of Chinese enterprises is the lack of innovation culture -- this refers to the innovation of "big self" rather than "small self". How can a civilization that invented gunpowder, cast iron, compass, movable type printing, papermaking and many other necessities of life that people have long been accustomed to be accused of lacking a culture of creating new products

therefore, I believe that local enterprises naturally have the ability to effectively compete with foreign-funded enterprises in the field of technology and create new products required by customers. What many local enterprises lack is the innovation of "big self" - in this kind of innovation, the innovation concept is built as the core competence of enterprises. From the perspective of leadership, the jaw maintenance and management ability of innovative tensile testing machine can provide an atmosphere to support innovation. Its ways include: Developing Innovation vision and strategy, managing relationships across engineering, marketing and other functions, managing technology and R & D teams, establishing market-oriented innovation processes, adopting best innovation practice models, and conducting innovation marketing, And so on -- these are the main weak areas of Chinese enterprises.
