Abstract

Although there is a growing literature on the presence of China in Africa, much of this focuses at the macro level. Knowledge of management of Chinese organizations remains largely anecdotal in sub-Saharan Africa. The current paper attempts to point the way for informed empirical research by linking current knowledge at macro level with enquiry at organizational level informed by management literature on China and Africa. Propositions are presented, with suggested methodology and research methods. The current lack of knowledge at organizational level may be leading to cross-cultural management issues on the part of Chinese and African partners. By taking a cross-cultural approach this paper seeks to address some of these issues.
