A trip through the obstacle course.
“When the music changes, so does the dance.” – African proverb
The time has come to capitalise on investment opportunities in Africa. But how does one do this in view of several stumbling blocks?
In our previous article “The easiest way to participate in Africa’s exponential growth”, we discussed the pressure that is being placed on the people, processes and technology available to businesses that intend to participate in Africa’s development. Our answer to the people issues, process issues, technology constraints and fragmented service offerings of these organisations was to tap into integrated capabilities across these areas, and this still holds true.
Sudden changes in an often volatile environment can easily turn a perfectly legal operation into an illegal one, overnight.
Subsequently, we wish to share a collection of significant challenges that we have encountered, as well as valuable lessons learnt, during our time spent in a number of African countries.
