With increasing interest in business and management in Africa, both in practice and in scholarly work, the related questions what management practices are in use in Africa and how effective these practices are is coming into the spotlight. This full day workshop aims to contribute to answering these questions. We therefore invite submissions of full papers as well as advanced drafts for possible inclusion in the workshop program, alongside the two keynote speeches. Our understanding of management practices is broad, across different the functions of a firm and ranging from individual level to firm level practices.
Just to remind you that the Academy of Management Annual Meeting starts this week, August 10 – 14, 2018 at Chicago, Illinois, USA.
Recent reports on Africa indicate that the continent is one of the fastest growing regions of the world, second to East Asia. To sustain this performance, it is important that African organizations, for-profit and non-profit, compete not only in Africa but also globally.

I wish you a Year filled with joy, happiness, and fulfillment of your goals!
Thank you very much for deeming me worthy to be the President of AFAM. As you know I cannot fill the shoes I have been given by our previous President, Prof. Stella Nkomo. However, I am going to do my best to at least maintain what she did.
