Editorial Reviews

"Manufacturing has recently become a global and complex industry, and China is a major player. Bruce Mitchell's 13 Steps to Manufacturing in China is a great book that addresses the social, cultural, political, and complex technical issues generally not known to the outsiders. In this detailed book, Bruce is speaking to a large audience of engineers, managers, consultants, and students worldwide who are interested in doing business in China. His writing style is simple, clear, humorous, highly informative, and truly engaging. I have personally learned a lot from this book and will not hesitate to recommend it to anyone who wants to establish a manufacturing unit in China." - Suresh Bhatt, PE, Independent Consulting Engineer"13 Steps to Manufacturing in China is very informative and a necessary reference for those interested in setting up a manufacturing facility in China, or elsewhere for that matter. The thirteen step process presented here offers a clear path to avoiding pitfalls when implementing a Greenfield site in another country. Only he that has traveled the road knows where the holes are deep. Even an engineer or developer not directly involved in such a venture can gain an understanding of the process and cultural differences involved." - James E. Barrell, Advanced Engineer, BSME, MBA"Bruce Mitchell has written the definitive book on manufacturing operations in China. It is a thorough piece of writing chock full of his wisdom and experience. This book is destined to be in the briefcases of CEO's and operations executives the world over with an eye on doing business in China. If you are contemplating moving all or a portion of your manufacturing operations to China, this is simply a must read. Do it now! If you have already moved your operations to China and want to critique where you went right and wrong, this book will provide you an excellent template for that analysis. It should be required reading by every corporate 'high potential' leader who is destined for an executive role in China." - Michael K. Burroughs, author of Before Onboarding: How to Integrate New Leaders for Quick and Sustained Results and President of Executive Integration and Coaching Services for the global search firm, DHR International
