Tapping into talent Workplace skills have become the key business differentiator of the twenty-first century. In much the same way that manufacturing prowess, technical efficiency and organizational flexibility defined success in the twentieth century, the ability of workers to adapt to and employ leading-edge technologies is defining economic leadership today. This skills centrality provides China, in particular, significant opportunities to extend global business leadership. With the country’s deep human reserves, advanced development capabilities and commitment to technological skills innovation, Chinese leaders have a tangible opportunity to redefine business and industry and, by so doing, the global economy.
