Nigerian businesses need to align their strategies with their environment


PAUL BUTLER, Executive Development Director, Aston Business School, UK, in this interview speaks on strategic challenges facing corporate organisations in Africa and proffers lasting solutions to same. Excerpt:

What are the key strategic challenges facing African Organisations?

Strategy is about creating a unique position for an organisation, a winning strategy can be achieved when an organisation outperform rivals by establishing a difference that it can preserve. Organisations need to be able to align their strategies with their own environments and in so doing help them in achieving higher performance. African managers face many strategic challenges including globalisation and international competition, high political risk, tough operating environment characterised by weak institutions and limited infrastructure as well as inadequate capacity to develop and retain human capital.

How can Nigerian executives address these key strategic challenges facing African organisations?

In order to meet these challenges and turn them into opportunities for growth for their organisations African managers need to change their managerial approaches to cope with these increasing demands. They need to consider new leadership styles and competencies to become more efficient and effective, particularly in areas such as managing change, leadership for results, formulating winning strategies and performance management which our forthcoming executive development programme at Aston Business School in the UK will address.

From the training development point of view, what would isolate as the critical development issues that African countries need to address?

A major challenge for many African countries, including Nigeria, is the inadequate infrastructure. Many Sub-Saharan African countries lack a stable electrical grid, creating the need for scarce resources to be expended on inverters, fuel and generators. Some organisations will expend up to 25 percent of the revenue for these basic needs.  Rail networks for the transportation of goods and people are either moribund or ineffective in most African countries. The health care system is limited and unreliable, often resulting in quality health care being available only to those with financial or political influence. The large Gini coefficient (the gap between haves and have not) in many African countries contributes to political and personal insecurities.

TEXEM, Aston Business School Partner On Human Capital Management

In a bid to achieve effective management of the human capital, a London-based company, TEXEM, is collaborating with Aston Business School to hold a special executive education programme, 'Leading and Managing Human Capital'.

The programme, which will be held at Aston Business School, Birmingham, UK, between July 21 and 24 this year, will ensure that delegates benefit from interactions with leading academics and leaders of thought from the Aston Business School, and are empowered to overcome strategic challenges and enhance organisational performance.

The four-day programme (including a visit to a tourist destination) is targetted at senior executives who are responsible for providing leadership and formulating strategic direction, as well as human resources professionals, and will develop insight into how integrating human and strategic goals can enhance organisational performance.

According to the CEO of TEXEM, Alim Abubakre, this programme is timely because it addresses the disconnect between human capital and competitive advantage which is arguably one of the key issues facing many organisations in Africa.

He said, "Management of human capital is one of the key challenges facing companies globally. However, in the African context, given the shortage of skilled labour, understanding how to retain employees and harnessing their potential is particularly critical."

"This programme would help leaders to develop clear visions and stimulate innovation for success in today's and tomorrow's dynamic and fast paced operating environment".

We are introducing a new customised programme to maximise potential and ensure sustainable growth in organisations across sub Saharan Africa.

People are the greatest asset of any organisation. A motivated, creative and trained workforce can drive an organisation to new levels of success. Human capital will become increasingly critical to organisational success as key economies across sub Saharan Africa move closer towards knowledge-based economies, which are heavily reliant on information, skills and knowledge.

However, too often companies neglect their employees and fail to realise the true potential of their workforces. In addition, organisations frequently view their human capital as a separate issue from establishing and maintaining competitive advantage. Not only does this lead to employee turnover and lower productivity, but it also constrains the ability of organisations to take advantage of new opportunities.

Strategy and Performance for Sustainability

Executives are increasingly recognising the role of sustainable business practices as being both crucial for risk reduction and valuable for the creation of new business opportunities. The World Council for Economic Development (WCED) defines sustainable development as development that "meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs." Managing for sustainability is now, more than ever, an essential strategy for the benefit of future generations - but it has also emerged as a key factor in creating current success in today's global business.

Businesses, Academics, NGOS, and the Government have stakes in society and all have an important role to play in promoting economic prosperity without compromising the fragile balance of the ecosystem. As all hands are on deck to get the UK out of the recession there is need for all stakeholders to work together to forestall another downturn- this time related to the environment. Sustainability has to be integrated in business practices not only because it is ethical but because it is also fast becoming an increasingly viable business model – This is paramount especially now that environmental issues are at the front burner and we’ve experienced the life-changing consequences of a recession.
