Work Collection of the Master

We have ushered into the 21st century. In this age, creative idea, innovation and creative production are playing a crucial role in the global development. China is facing challenges posed by social transition, industry upgrading and management innovation. “Made in China” have been a driving force for the world economy development. However, how to transit from “made in China” to “created in China”? How to foster local professionals and stimulate creative enthusiasm of the Chinese nation as a whole, and rejuvenate the Chinese civilization and sustainable development of our society? With above questions borne in mind, DeTao Group has conducted an in-depth research and put it into practice. That’s why we have compiled “DeTao Master Series Books”.

DeTao Master Series Books were written by masters from various industries and disciplines. It is featured by the collection of the wisdom and the experience of masters and how to pass these wisdom and experience to the younger generation. We wish to re-experience the whole procedure of “transiting productive force into knowledge and let knowledge enrich productive force”. Our authors are really serious about these books, and they have also focused on drawing theory from practice. That explains why these books boast of high value in academic, social and pragmatic respects. We wish that the wisdom and experience of our authors will bring about brand new experience and inspiration to the readers. Let us harness various scientific methods, broad perspective, and creative inspirations to help various industries for sustainable development.
