Demography, Ethnicity, and Socio-cultural Factors in Project Management
C.L. Kappagomtula, Professor, Malaysia, Member
While there are volumes of books available on project management, very few discuss how demography, ethnicity and socio-cultural factors influence on projects outcome.
An empirical study recently conducted into this phenomenon in China, and comparing it with India, has shown that the profound influence of personal connection (guanxi), face (mianzhi), and ethnographic bonding (minzhu de jing mi jie he) all play an important role in determining the success outcome for their projects in China vis-a-vis with India.
Can these practices be be emulated in other countries to harness an increased efficiency in projects outcome?

Dear Professor, thanks for sharing this truly interesting subject. Could you please add a short summary of each of these 3 Chinese practices and their relation with PM? Ideal would be if you could add one of them per reaction.
This will be the start of a collection of such demographic, ethnic, and socio-cultural project management practices here in this discussion...
