Abstract

Chinese economy has been undertaking a boom since the government launched the famous "reform and opening up" policies in 1979. The reformation of Chinese economy concentrates not only on the transformation from planned economy to market-based economy, but also on the transition of State-Owned-Enterprises (SOEs).

The transitions of SOEs include the changes of property rights, government-business relationship, and management practices. Among these issues, the former two concern the economic structure adjustment and the practices of government, while the transformation from traditional Chinese management style to western scientific management involves the changes in management practices, organisational structure, and institutions.

This dissertation addresses to find how institutional factors affect organisational change, especially the change of organisational structure, in Chinese SOEs and indicate the impact of these elements by studying a specific case.
