Strategic Management of Business Operations in Turbulent and Evolving African Markets
African business environment offers enormous opportunities. Opportunities are emerging from the seemingly unrelenting blossoming and booming lucrativity of inter alia the agro-business sector, tourism, mining, transport and logistic services handling. Yet, the question as to how these blossoming business opportunities can be optimized by the existing and emerging African businesses as well as FDIs is a paradox that still confounds most of the contemporary business executives. This paper seeks to offer strategies and critical business tactics for establishing and steering a business through all the waves of risks, complexities and uncertainties of doing business in Africa.
