Do you recruit internationally for your Africa operations? Do you want talent with strong market/sector awareness and the analytical skills to excel within the context of an African business environment?
If your answer is ‘yes’ then you need to be looking for candidates who have already been given a practical grounding in what working and doing business in the various African countries is REALLY about. African markets are fast emerging and it is no longer feasible to ‘just send someone’ to run your operations in whatever African country you operate in.
Whether they are posted to your African country of operation, or interacting virtually with colleagues and clients in various African countries, it is crucial to mitigating operational risk and improving your bottom line, that your employees understand the realities of the business environment in Africa, and how to successfully navigate the terrain. The management of business in Africa requires a more professional approach with a thorough understanding of the practicalities on the ground, and this is what the African Business Management (ABM®) qualification provides!
You can either hire an ABM qualified employee, or we can provide training for your existing employees. You can send them to one of our open courses or we can provide in-house customised training specific to your organisational needs.
