Spot the Business Trends and Opportunities in Africa from the World Design Capital for 2014


Published on

Mani James, Operations Manager for Frost & Sullivan Africa spoke at the Cape Business News Networking Breakfast on 27 February 2014.

James presented a hands-on, interactive session gave attendees the tools to identify gaps in the market, thereby allowing them to design products and services to fill these niches.

James said that the key is to be able to unpack a macro-trend, identify the corresponding micro-trends and then recognise the gaps. Once you have this information, you and your team can make sure that you are strategically placed to focus your resources on filling these gaps.

“The participant can then go back to their company and say, ‘If this is the scenario, are we ready? Are the internal systems all go for us to capitalise on this opportunity? Have we actually got the resources? Have we got the right data to make this kind of decision?’”.

  38. 38. Strategic Conclusions & Key Success Factors
  39. 39. Key Strategic Conclusions 1. Mega Trends impact multiple industries. Examine them carefully to optimally develop medium and long term strategies in current and new markets 2. It is important to understand the eco-system of the Mega Trend, possible convergence and the elements of the value chain which have most profitability 3. All these trends are global and have global ramifications thereby offering scalable opportunities 4. These forces are changing rapidly and bringing new competencies into play at half the life-cycle speed of the past decade 5. Organisations’ need “Mega Trend” champions and teams within their organisation structure to best exploit the opportunities 6. In Africa we need to particularly understand the opportunities arising locally as a consequence of global mega trends – e.g. local markets, international markets, as part of international supply chain 39
  40. 40. Key Success Factors for Africa – What has Worked ? Robust country and regional strategy Trusted brand & loyalty Strong local presence Direct Consumer approach is key – absolute must have Key Success Factors Affordable Pricing and Promotion targeting the middle class Focus on maintaining key cash cow products in the broad range Position the global quality brand in the market Strong local partnerships Strengthen the ecommerce platforms 40
  41. 41. What Are the Strategic Questions You Need to Consider? Regional and country strategies – What is your strategy & why ? More global companies locating to Africa – How do you defend your turf ? Consumer focus – Customer‘s customer – Do you know the need ? Customised solutions – Are you ready and capable ? Strategic Questions for Africa Distribution Strategy – How strong are your partnerships ? Physical Proximity – Are you to your customer ? Product Porfolio differentiation – How do you differentiate ?
