Rote learning is deeply rooted in Chinese traditions and remains the predominant method for education and training across the rapidly developing economies of Greater China. Confucian‐based cultural values are argued to constitute a formidable obstacle as management educators and developers seek to move from knowledge transmission to learning facilitation, and to cultivate a new generation of innovative Chinese managers. Describes and examines a creative approach which has been successfully used to stimulate and challenge Chinese university students. Shows that the interactive and contextual learning techniques used by the authors have extensive applicability for educating managers and developing executives.
