Summary
Global Manufacturing Technology Transfer: Africa-USA Strategies, Adaptations, and Management presents practical strategies for developing and sustaining manufacturing technology transfers. It is particularly useful for helping developing nations achieve and sustain a solid footing of economic development through manufacturing. The book examines Africa and USA trade relations to demonstrate how modern technology innovation strategies can be developed and harmonized to keep a nation moving forward economically. It then explores how to advance existing technical relationships through new and updated approaches. The book uses the case and template of trade relations of Africa and the United States to demonstrate how technology innovation strategies can be developed and harmonized to keep a nation moving forward economically. The author discusses project management tools, highlights manufacturing as the foundation for economic development, and explores lessons learned. He details a systems approach, covering both qualitative and quantitative tools and techniques. Although focusing on Africa-USA technology transfer, the concepts are applicable to other technology transfer relationships. Africa is poised to assume a leading role in global manufacturing. However, the foundation for doing so successfully will depend on the development and sustainability of a reliable manufacturing infrastructure in Africa. A key requirement for this will be new and innovative mechanisms for technology transfer. This book gives you the strategies required to address each technology transfer path as well as new innovative approaches for developing and transferring new technology
