Case Study - Novacap

X-PM supported French chemicals company Novacap after it bought a majority stake in a private Chinese firm.

For nine months, it provided an executive with excellent knowledge of Chinese and French business practices to help build confidence between the two partners.

The consultant put in place some western procedures to improve the company’s efficiency, while convincing Novacap to retain some Chinese methods that made sense in the local business environment.
