The Lenovo Way shows business leaders how to gain

market share and develop new business models. The strategies driving Lenovo's ascent to the leading position

in the PC industry have been in motion for years, and this book shows how Lenovo, with roots in both East and West, did it.

biggest and most powerful brands through innovations and new acquisitions to become an even bigger force in

smartphones, servers, and cloud computing, and its CEO

has been listed as one of the best in the world. Using the

story of Lenovo as a case study illustrating best global

practices, The Lenovo Way explains how to:

Gain market share by protecting core strengths while seizing new opportunities

Create a diverse and effective culture that transcends all borders

Lead your company successfully through the chaos of change

Make innovation part of your organizational DNA



Providing key insights into the topics most critical to

leaders of global businesses, the authors explore all the major turning points: from building an iconic brand to

streamlining supply chains, while making the transition

from a core business of PCs to a new business model.



In order to excel in today's marketplace, managers need to create a blueprint for a whole new level of globalization. You must position your company to continue doing what it does best, yet be poised not just to navigate but also to capitalize on change and take advantage of turmoil.
