My NativeAdVantage:

Bio:

Oded Shenkar holds degrees in East-Asian (Chinese) Studies and Sociology from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and a PhD from Columbia University, where his dissertation on the Chinese bureaucracy involved the department of Sociology, the Graduate School of Business, and the East-Asian Institute. He is the Ford Motor Company Chair in Global Business Management and Professor of Management and Human Resources at the Fisher College of Business, The Ohio State University, where he is also a member of the Centers for Chinese Studies and for Near East Studies. Professor Shenkar has been a Senior Fellow at the University of Cambridge, and has taught at the Chinese University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong University of Science & Technology, Peking University, University of International Business and Economics (Beijing), and the International University of Japan, among others.

Professor Shenkar has published more than hundred scholarly articles in leading journals, as well as ten books, most recently, The Chinese Century (Wharton School Publishing; 12 foreign editions), The Great Deleveraging (Financial Times Press, with H. Dickson), and Copycats: how smart companies use imitation to gain a strategic edge (Harvard Business Press; 11 foreign editions). His work has been cited by The Wall Street Journal, New York Times, Financial Times, Los Angeles Times, USA Today, Chicago Tribune, Washington Post, Boston Globe, Daily Mail (UK), Liberation (France), International Herald Tribune, Time, Business Week, the Economist, and China Daily, as well as on radio (e.g., NPR, CBS) and TV (BBC, CNN, China Central Television, ABC, Bloomberg).

He appeared before the US-China Economic & Security Review Commission, among others, and is past Vice President and a current Fellow of the Academy of International Business.

What do you do best?

As someone interested in national culture, I can comment that this is a very American question… but if I have to answer, I would like to think of myself as a German Shepherd: this dog breed that may not be the best on any particular dimension but excels on the combination and on his overall capabilities. I believe I have a rare combination of capabilities, the result of eclectic training and experience in the humanities, social sciences, and business. This enables me to see the forest from the trees and find paths in a complex maze.

How will you stay the best?

You have to keep on studying and be open to new ideas from different sources. How many business school professors you now read about new developments in biology and the neurosciences? I do.

Biggest Success?

Am still waiting…

What are your aspirations?

Personal: To maintain a happy family

Business: To be able to disseminate new ideas that people are resistant to hearing.

Most challenging moment?

War, but not for the reasons you find in the movies.

What fascinates me?

Animal life and capabilities; human evolution and history; the improbable rise of the least competent humans to the very top.

Favorite Moto:

We are all in the same boat but some of us got the better and safer seats.

Favorite People:

Other than my family and a few friends, I prefer other species

Favorite Places:

Hawaii, which I have left for mostly the wrong reasons

Favorite Products:

Electronics
