An Executive Insight into

Strategic Sourcing (1st and 2nd edition)

Designed to develop supply chain management (SCM) knowledge among executives, policy makers and decision makers, An Executive Insight into Strategic Sourcing aims to increase region-wide awareness of the multifaceted links between the supply chain management function and long-term industrialisation, job creation, poverty alleviation and socio-economic development in Africa. In particular, it offers insight into the positive role that effective strategic sourcing can play in company performance, industrial competitiveness, service delivery outputs and the realisation of Africa’s long-term socio-economic developmental efforts.

Any country in Africa that through the governing party believes they can economically go it alone is leading its people down the wrong path.

Professor Douglas Boateng

Made in Ghana or South Africa or Kenya still creates artificial boundaries. We must rather promote Made in Africa.

Professor Douglas Boateng

Mindset change is the greatest challenge facing Africa’s economic emancipation drive.

Professor Douglas Boateng

Supply chain management decisions made today have a direct impact on you, your organisation, local industries and the future of the African child.

Professor Douglas Boateng

You know and understand your problem. You are the only one that can solve it.

Professor Douglas Boateng

Negotiating and bargaining are two different concepts.

Professor Douglas Boateng

Accepting hard truths and realities can change individual attitudes and society as a whole.

Professor Douglas Boateng

Our destiny is in our own hands.

Professor Douglas Boateng

Some people use money to make a difference. Others use knowledge and experience to effect long-term positive change.

Professor Douglas Boateng

I can only be happy when I see the youth and children around me also happy.

Professor Douglas Boateng

Having self-respect, knowledge and purpose helps in navigating the complex journey of life.

Professor Douglas Boateng

I am who I am today because of what someone sacrificed for me.

Professor Douglas Boateng

The Africa Beyond Aid agenda starts with you.

Professor Douglas Boateng

By just sitting back and hoping for change you are denying your own self and the African child a better socio-economic future.

Professor Douglas Boateng

The mere fact that I may not live to see my dream does not mean I should abandon my dreams for the African child.

Professor Douglas Boateng

The long-term success of the African Continental Free Trade Agreement (AfCFTA) is dependent on the region embracing supply chain management thinking.

Professor Douglas Boateng

Supply chain management thinking and the continent’s long-term industralisation are inextricably linked.

Professor Douglas Boateng

Accepting hard truths and realities can change individual attitudes and society as a whole.

Professor Douglas Boateng

There is no such thing as free money or aid.

Professor Douglas Boateng

Long-term socio-economic transformation starts with you.

Professor Douglas Boateng

Long-term economic growth, company, industry and national competitiveness are achieved through supply chain management thinking.

Professor Douglas Boateng

We are constantly told to think outside the box. The big question is…who gave you that box that is being used as a reference point?

Professor Douglas Boateng

For Africa to truly industrialise the definition of local must shift from national to regional and continental boundaries.

Professor Douglas Boateng

An economically powerful Africa is possible through strategic industrial sourcing and changing consumer buying behaviours.

Professor Douglas Boateng

In addition to exporting raw materials and human capital, Africa is increasingly exporting hard currency to support the continent’s insatiable desire for goods made outside of the continent.

Professor Douglas Boateng

What I am doing is not for me but for the African child. I was once an African child.

Professor Douglas Boateng

I may not have money to give you but I certainly have knowledge and experience to help you change your attitude towards long-term wealth creation.

Professor Douglas Boateng

Understanding your supply chain gives you the competitive edge.

Professor Douglas Boateng

Beware of the ides of aid.

Professor Douglas Boateng

Throwing money at poverty related issues may yield short-term benefits but may make matters worse.

Professor Douglas Boateng

Buying behaviours and industrialisation are inextricably linked.

Professor Douglas Boateng

Limited understanding of supply chain management is a reason for the de-industralisation of the continent.

Professor Douglas Boateng

What you chose to buy based on price has an impact on a country’s long-term industrial development.

Professor Douglas Boateng

Without a common understanding of supply chain management and its implications, the entire continent will continue to struggle to economically emancipate itself.

Professor Douglas Boateng

Our ancestors selflessly strived to build a better future for us. Therefore we are duty bound to at least try to better what was started for the next generation.

Professor Douglas Boateng

As a continent we have to have a common supply chain and industralisation plan. Otherwise our so-called developmental partners will determine it for us but to benefit them.

Professor Douglas Boateng

There is a supply chain associated with every product or service. You just need to have a strategy and plan to develop and manage it.

Professor Douglas Boateng

Do not bargain with your supply chain resources for short-term price gains. Rather negotiate with these assets for long-term wealth creation benefits.

Professor Douglas Boateng

De-industrialisation is mainly caused by consuming what you do not produce.

Professor Douglas Boateng

Trusting one another is one of the keys to long-term socio-economic freedom.

Professor Douglas Boateng

To build wealth that transcends generations you need to think beyond yourself.

Professor Douglas Boateng

Do your homework to appreciate what you have before going into negotiations.

Professor Douglas Boateng

Do not always blame the government for your woes. Sometimes also critically look at yourself in the mirror and ask what role you have played in creating the woes.

Professor Douglas Boateng

As a business leader when you think South African your market is just under 60 million people. However when you think African your market is just under 1 billion people.

Professor Douglas Boateng

Africans may be surrounded by poverty but the continent is certainly not poor.

Professor Douglas Boateng

You have to be able to logistically move whatever you produce timeously, otherwise there is no need to produce it.

Professor Douglas Boateng

Africa as individual nations is economically insignificant. Africa as one economic block is already an economic giant.

Professor Douglas Boateng

Economic empowerment is about long-term wealth creation and not about short-term materialistic entitlement.

Professor Douglas Boateng

Human beings by nature are risk averse and will not take chances with people they do not know and trust.

Professor Douglas Boateng

Cheapest price does not always equate to the best value for money for business and/or society

Professor Douglas Boateng

The journey of life is not necessarily about how you started. Rather it is how you finished.

Professor Douglas Boateng

Supply chain management is simply about having a win-win shared vision in a value chain.

Professor Douglas Boateng

As a consumer, do not just buy; rather strategically procure to support local and regional value-adding supply chains.

Professor Douglas Boateng

Economic empowerment is about trust and value-add and not colour-add.
