Inhaltsangabe:Abstract:
This thesis gives an overview of Project Management in the People’s Republic of China (PRC), with regard to soft skills as success factors. The reason for writing my thesis in China was to experience the effects of globalisation with a practical orientation. China seemed to me the most interesting and challenging country for the assignment. To learn more about the success factors which are essential for the collaboration with the Chinese was a further motivation for me to write this work in China.
During my assignment I learned that soft factors and social competence are key requirements to be accepted and successful in daily business. The intercultural difference and the social behaviour of the Chinese are very different from what Westerners are used to at home. To handle these differences, soft skills become essential for successful collaboration.
After introducing the background knowledge of Project Management in China, several situations which require soft skills are addressed and discussed. Not only ways to improve our own soft skills are stated but also ways to recognise and react to certain situations in the dialogue with others. The role of soft skills is extremely important in modern-day business life and in all divisions of a company. With the following work I want to arouse the reader’s interest and awareness of soft factors in business and convince him of the importance of such a fundamental topic.
