Knowledge Practices and Sino-German Conflicts



This chapter delves into the actual knowledge situation in China’s business environment and depicts the conflicts arising within daily working practice between Chinese and German employees in FIEs. By analyzing empirical data gathered in FIEs in China, six practices inductively emerged which help to fathom how boundaries of knowledge are currently drawn. These practices illuminate the subtle criteria and strategies which inform the sampled Chinese interviewees when drawing these boundaries and reveal how these easily lead to conflicts with German employees.
