SMEs play a vital role in the growth of economies and are often described as the engine of economic development. However, SMEs in emerging markets struggle to survive and grow for a variety of reasons, including a lack of finance and management skills.

GET THE BEST OUT OF LIFE, WORK AND BUSINESS
Project work is the “new work order” in many organizations, institutions and nations. This is due to an increase in the rate at which changes take place in the economy and world of work. Inadvertently, this has led to an array of challenges and opportunities that could hardly have been imagined in the past.
The only way to change or drive innovation is to tap into the power of project management. Due to the constant need for organizations to change, project management capability (PMC) has now mutated from a non-core functional capability into a core organizational capability in many leading organizations. Since the advent of the twentieth century, project management has become increasingly fundamental to how organizations operate in today’s business arena.₦5,950.00

They tell us how we’re doing at school, how much we weigh, who might win an election and whether the economy is booming. But numbers aren’t as objective as they may seem; behind every number is a story. Yet politicians, businesses and the media often forget this – or use it for their own gain.₦5,000.00

Innovation is the main event of the modern age, the reason we experience both dramatic improvements in our living standards and unsettling changes in our society. It is innovation that will shape the twenty-first century. Yet innovation remains a mysterious process, poorly understood by policy makers and businessmen alike.
Matt Ridley argues that we need to see innovation as an incremental, bottom-up, fortuitous process that happens as a direct result of the human habit of exchange, rather than an orderly, top-down process developing according to a plan. Innovation is crucially different from invention, because it is the turning of inventions into things of practical and affordable use to people. It speeds up in some sectors and slows down in others. It is always a collective, collaborative phenomenon, involving trial and error, not a matter of lonely genius. It still cannot be modelled properly by economists, but it can easily be discouraged by politicians. Far from there being too much innovation, we may be on the brink of an innovation famine.₦7,500.00₦7,500.00

In ‘The Rational Optimist’, acclaimed science writer Matt Ridley comprehensively refutes the doom-mongers of our time, and reaches back into the past to give a rational explanation for why we can – and will – overcome the challenges of the future, such as climate change and the population boom.

In 1960, the GDP per capita of Southeast Asian countries was nearly half of that of Africa. By 1986 the gap had closed and today the trend is reversed, with more than half of the world’s poorest now living in sub Saharan Africa. Why has Asia developed while Africa lagged? The Asian Aspiration chronicles the stories of explosive growth and changing fortunes: the leaders, events and policy choices that lifted a billion people out of abject poverty within a single generation, the largest such shift in human history. The relevance of Asia’s example comes as Africa is facing a population boom, which can either lead to crisis or prosperity, and as Asia is again transforming, this time out of low-cost manufacturing into hi-tech, leaving a void that is Africa’s for the taking. Far from the optimistic determinism of ‘Africa Rising’, this book calls for unprecedented pragmatism in the pursuit of African success.₦10,000.00
Amazon is the fastest company ever to reach $100 billion in sales and they didn’t reach that landmark by staying in their comfort zone. Risk taking is the key that unlocked the door to growth at Amazon, but those risks were (and are) intentional, calculated, and strategic. Thomas Edison believed, “I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.” and Amazon’s founder, Jeff Bezos, has always linked experimentation and failure with growth and success.₦5,500.00
