Abstract: This paper seeks to explore and explain what Chinese manufacturing developments in the last 35 years can inspire and challenge the management studies. The paper recognises that the classical industrialisation model and industrial systems have brought China not only to the largest manufacturing nation but also to the tipping point where its success can destroy its achievements and even the world. The new generation of industrial strategy and management theory has to learn from the Chinese manufacturing experiences and explore new type of strategic and system solutions.
