Abstract

The aim of this study is to examine the existence of skills shortage among Chinese managers. To address this problem, we applied both quantitative and qualitative methods to assess the skills levels, the existence of skills scarcity and deficiencies among Chinese managers; and to test how organizational factors affect skills levels and skills shortages. The research involved semi-structured interviews conducted with 16 managers, and survey data collected from 243 managers in organizations doing business in China. The results of the study demonstrate the existence of skills scarcity and skills deficiencies, which are significantly associated with the organizational characteristics. These findings have implications for organizational and managerial performance, and further suggest a number of insights for skill framework development.
