Inherit the essence of the revolution, summarize Chinese-style management thought—NBS holds Workshop on "Mao Zedong Thought and Business Management"

On December 26, in the festival referred to as Christmas by Westerners, a group of special persons gathered in Pangu Plaza, Beijing, a building named after the legendary creator of heaven and earth to honor Mao Zedong, a great man who created New China, and to discuss and inherit Mao Zedong Thought, the ideological pillar laying the theoretical foundation for founding of New China and steering China's sustainable development and growth. The day coincided with the 120th anniversary of Chairman Mao Zedong's birth and was thus called the "Christmas of China" by many Chinese.

The workshop was organized by New Huadu Business School (NBS) and PKU Business Review. Present were experts from the military, political and academic circles as well as business representatives, including Han Yuhai, professor of Peking University; Jiang Yong, director of the Research Center of the China Institutes of Contemporary International Relations; Major General Gong Yinkun, red management expert and former political commissar of an equipment base of the PLA; Senior Colonel Li Kaicheng, red management expert and researcher of an information research institute of the Headquarters of the General Staff of the PLA; Han Deqiang, associate professor of Beijing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics; and Ren Zhigang, author of the best seller Why Mao Zedong.

Chinese-style management thought yet to be summarized

With the fast growth of China's economy and the continuous increase in China's GDP, especially after China's GDP ranked 2nd in the world in 2010, China's developments and economic growth have drawn increasing attention. Relative to China's fast economic growth, the development of Chinese management thoughts has obviously lagged behind, there is no systematized management thought in China yet, which grossly disagrees with China's current economic status. Comparatively, economic powers like the USA and Japan have their own systematized management thought. Thus, refining and summarizing the management thought exclusively characteristic of China has become the top priority of Chinese management academia as well as the important reason why NBS held the workshop.

As the basic ideological system guiding Chinese revolution to success and supporting the sustained development of China's society, the importance of Mao Zedong Thought to Chinese-style management thought is self-evident. The attendees focused on three issues: "Why can Mao Zedong Thought be applied to business management in the market economy", "Integration of Mao Zedong Thought and business management" and "Concrete methods of learning and applying Mao Zedong Thought".

Mao Zedong Thought and its new enlightenment on business management

Actually, there had been a lot of workshops or speeches on Mao Zedong Thought and business management, but more were on fragmented or pragmatic Mao Zedong Thought helping enterprises resolve daily management problems.

At the workshop, the experts presented new views on Mao Zedong Thought and business management. For example, Han Deqiang, associate professor of Beijing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics, said, "Misunderstanding or demonizing Chairman Mao today is misunderstanding his divinity. God cares about and inspires numberless people. When we pay tribute to Chairman Mao, the feeling is exactly the feeling of believers for God. Myths are exactly what God said and Chairman's Mao's sayings are exactly myths. God is very important and is actually the peak of human mind evolution."

Senior Colonel Li Kaicheng, red management expert and researcher of an information research institute of the Headquarters of the General Staff of the PLA, said, "As the Party's basic ideological system since the founding of new China, Mao Zedong Thought which guided China in changing from a poor country before its liberation into a country whose GDP ranking 2nd in the world today undoubtedly contains rich management, more importantly, it accords with China's national conditions. It is the exclusive wealth of Chinese management academia. Chinese-style management thought needs to generalize Mao Zedong Thought in a modern management language on the basis of inheriting fine culture.”

Teaching instills essence, PKU Business Review provides position

As an organizer of the workshop, the trailblazer of China's entrepreneurial education and the practitioner of China's entrepreneurial education theory, NBS has also explored Mao Zedong Thought and business management by action. For example, it has opened the course of Chinese revolution and organization growth in the entrepreneurial program. Through experiential teaching, the course offered the trainees a deep understanding of the essence of Mao Zedong Thought. Just as Prof. He Zhiyi, chairman of NBS, said, "We very much hope the experts specializing in Mao Zedong Thought and business management will assist NBS in helping enterprise grow from the wisdom of the Communist Party of China and Chinese revolution in the future."

A relevant person in charge of the other organizer--PKU Business Review said, "We explore the treasury of Mao Zedong Thought to pass the infinite knowledge and his good thought, which is not accomplished today or in such a brief event marking the 120th anniversary of Mao Zedong's birth. I hope PKU Business Review will become a position for you to rationally discuss the value of Mao Zedong Thought to China's management whether in modes of management teaching or in modes of management practice. We are willing to offer you such a valuable opportunity no matter whether you write serious management articles or complete live business cases based on Mao Zedong Thought."
