Wang’s Simple and Effective Strategy and Organizational Approach “The manufacturing of cars starts with manufacturing of talents, then tools and then cars.” Wang’s famous organization philosophy (Cheung et al.2013). "Our company is built on technological know-how," Wang’s answer to Warren Buffett question "How did BYD get so far ahead?”. "We'll never, never rest," when Buffett asked Wang about his strategy of business sustainability (Gunther, 2009). We all know what were happened when car manufacture rest on their existing products as Holden and Ford Australia.
