“This is essential reading for anyone seeking to compete–and succeed–in the fl at world.”
–John Hagel, Chairman of Deloitte Center of Innovation
“Competing in a Flat World provides an extraordinary glimpse into a new kind of organizational architecture, one built around the notion of orchestrating resources you don’t control and doing so in a way that builds both trust and agility. This architecture may well turn out to be the dominant model of the firm for the 21st century. This book is a must read for anyone who wants to compete in a flat world. Every chapter details new and powerful ideas.”
–John Seely Brown, Former Chief Scientist of Xerox Corporation and coauthor of The Only Sustainable Edge
“We are led by unstoppable economic forces to connect our resources to form smart networks, either wired or unwired. The authors bring forward the notion of ‘network orchestration,’ an almost one-size-fits-all strategy for organizations to survive and excel in an ever-flattening world.”
–John Chen, Sybase Chairman, CEO and President
In the “flat world,” everything changes…above all, what it takes to run a winning company. Success is less about what the company can do itself and more about what it can connect to. Find out how it’s done, from the company that pioneered “flat world” success, Li & Fung, which produces more than $8 billion in garments and other goods for the world’s top brands and retailers–without owning a single factory.
Victor and William Fung and Jerry Wind, author of the best-selling The Power of Impossible Thinking, reveal how they’ve replaced “old-fashioned” infrastructure and huge employee bases with a fluid, ever-changing network that can design, manufacture, and deliver almost anything, anywhere. The key to success in this world is a set of principles for “network orchestration,” described for the first time in this book. They examine how these principles can be applied in manufacturing, services and other industries. They show how to build and orchestrate your own world-class global network.
* Compete “network vs. network”–and win!
* Create a “big-small” company that combines scale and agility
* Forge loose-tight relationships with suppliers
* Balance control with empowerment, stability with renewal
* Manage the “bumps” in the flat world–from politics to terrorism

It is always one of the goals in my life to write a book, not that I am particularly good in writing but I just like to write and share about the topics that I am passionate about. However, I didn't know that I was on track to author a book when eCommerceMILO was started 17 months ago, until Carol Fung introduced me to the editor of her own online retailing book.

The book Siblings tells the story about the struggle of a Chinese family during the pre- and postwar years in Hong Kong. Based on recollections of the author and his two older brothers, the author wrote about how his eldest brother had started from nothing to become a successful entrepreneur and how he took care of his sister and younger brothers in a subtle way by helping them in their lives, their families, and their careers. The book covers more than a half century of events about the family in the tiny city of Hong Kong. As Hong Kong grew from a poor British colony into a thriving city and an important financial center, the family also prospered. The children of Siblings are now living in Hong Kong, North America, Europe, and Australia. The author of the book is the youngest son, and to express his gratitude toward his siblings, especially his eldest brother, he wrote this book as a token of appreciation and honor to him. With the book, the author is hoping that the offspring would learn about their roots and, more importantly, about sibling relationship and sibling bond.
