In Africa, causing offence through a lack of knowledge of local practice, custom or culture can have a very negative effect on productivity and company image.
The increased democratisation of African politics requires that those operating in African countries need to have a deep understanding of how a country’s elections will affect their operating environment. With this in mind, Know Africa and Hlaziya Solutions have combined the best on-the-ground political analysis with cutting-edge data tools and analytics to ensue that their clients are prepared for any changes an election may bring.
Our approach to doing business in Africa
At Know Africa Research Consultants, we believe that because the experience and requirements of doing business in African countries vary so greatly, only research-driven, tailored and client-focused solutions result in success. We, therefore, differentiate ourselves from others through our drive to ensure that all analysis and advice rendered is carefully tailored to suit our clients business needs and is shaped to suit the specific African environment within which they operate.
In addition, we take great care to ensure that our clients’ business actions are not at odds with local cultures, communities or consumers. This is of particular importance when doing business in African countries, where causing offence through a lack of knowledge of local practice, custom or culture can have a very negative effect on productivity and company image.
