The alignment may need adjustment while considering whether a Western model is fitted into the Chinese workgroup. This study examines the philosophical value concerning business management within an organization and then explores which value is applicable to the modern Chinese structure in the context of Taiwan. <em>Purpose and methods.</em> The purpose is the holistic view of the Chinese model, as opposed to the separated approach of the West. It does not attempt to find the best philosophical framework of business management for local Chinese structure in Taiwan, as such a framework probably does not exist. Instead, it explores the specific phenomena considered during the process of emergence of business management framework when comparing philosophical value for both selected cases of Western and Chinese enterprises. The case study and PATOP model were used. <em>Results</em><em>.</em> As a result, there has no single model that is absolutely appropriate to both business and people in one way or the other. Both Chinese and Western philosophical ways of doing business have merits and weaknesses, as illustrated. The implication of the results is the emerged PATOP model. The model indicates an ideal work environment where the Western approach is applicable to the Chinese structure in Taiwan. <em>Conclusions.</em> It concludes that the philosophical approach in doing business within the Chinese structure is erected in a way of “Middle of the Road” according to the PATOP emerged from the study. However, it should be noted that there will be drift as this emerged PATOP model used in the Chinese structure with western approach, indicating another issue “what an acceptable time for drift would be”?</p> Leelien Ken Huang Copyright (c) 2021 Leelien Ken Huang 2021-12-10 2021-12-10 4 2 79 109 10.31866/2709-846x.2.2021.246741 Production and Consumption Model of a Modern Music Product <p><em>Introduction</em>.

The methodological basis of the study is comprehensive, systematic, and historical approaches. <em>Results. </em>A music product is defined in two definitions: first, like a musical composition with lyrics (song) or without lyrics (melody); secondly, “artist” as a music product that is directly involved in creating a track (song), public performance (concert), products with the symbols of their brand (merch) and content for social networks, television, radio, including advertising. Modern manufacturers of the music industry commercialize the artist's brand, his unique story. This strategy ensures rapid monetization of the music project and reduces investment risks. <em>Conclusions. </em>The scientific novelty of the research results is to determine the specifics of the functioning of traditional and modern models of modern music product production and consumption. The practical significance of the obtained results is in the use of the concept of “music product” for the development and improvement of legislation in the field of culture, the functioning of the music industry, and the protection of intellectual property rights, including copyright.</p> Iryna Parkhomenko Kateryna Berezovska Copyright (c) 2021 Iryna Parkhomenko, Kateryna Berezovska 2021-12-10 2021-12-10 4 2 110 125 10.31866/2709-846x.2.2021.246747 Fashion Industry in the Context of Sustainable Development: Eco-Products, Conscious Consumption and Management <p><em>Introduction.</em>&nbsp;The relevance of the study is due to the need to select management tools for the formation of environmentally conscious consumption of the fashion industry products, which is developing dynamically and rapidly, which will contribute to the preservation of the resource potential of not only the country but also the planet as a whole.&nbsp;<em>Purpose and methods.</em>&nbsp;The purpose of the article is to substantiate the role and importance of eco-products, conscious consumption, and management in the context of the fashion industry’s sustainable development.
