Agricultural Innovations: Sudanese National Agricultural Summit And Lessons For Nigeria
(and II) | @mkothman1, @LeadershipNGA





«The first lesson for Nigeria on the agricultural trend in Sudan is the deliberate, active and strategic involvement of the private sector. The cases of Zedna, CTC and SFARI Institute are successful examples of public – private driven agricultural research and extension model. This model brings out the best from the research angle as scientists have ample opportunity for capacity development and access to new research results and direction.

The government (ministries) acquires more time for policy formulation; regulation and standardisation while the farmers acquire improved technologies and enhanced productivity. Yes, Nigeria can simply copy the Sudan Model, modify it and apply for maximum efficiency.


The second lesson is the coordination of research activities in the country. As mentioned, ARC has the mandate to conduct applied agricultural research on food and industrial crops, forestry, livestock and food technology. This is an addition to ecological and regional responsibilities to develop sustainable production systems in the Sudan.

ARC periodically identifies agricultural research problems while solutions are sought from the chain of research centres under her purview. This role is similar to that of Agricultural Research Council of Nigeria (ARCN). The 17 National Agricultural Research Institutes (NARIs) under the Federal Ministry of Agricultural and Rural Development/ARCN in Nigeria are similar to the 14 commodity – based research centres of Sudan.

The major difference is the staffing and conduct of research between the two organisations. While the personnel of the ARC, totaling 3,552 as at early 2016 are directly employees of ARC, the personnel of NARIs are directly employees of NARIs. Be as it is, ARCN has a full legal power to coordinate and regulate agricultural research activities in the country. However, this power of coordination and regulation is yet to bear fruits, as there is lack of synergy between the NARIs and other key stakeholders.


The third lesson from Sudan Agricultural strategy is the size of agricultural sector with more potential in Nigeria than Sudan. In Nigeria, over the years, agriculture has been relegated far behind in the nation’s developmental efforts for obvious reasons. Now that the nation has no option but develop agriculture and diversify the economy due to unreliability of the oil sector, can we learn from the Sudanese strategy? What can we do to our livestock subsector?

Surely, we have been paying more attention to crops subsector than livestock. Should we have a separate Minister for Animal resources? To be food secured, we must double our efforts in coordination, research and extension in order to achieve the desired goals in Agriculture. The sector has the potential to gainfully employ 70 per cent of Nigerians along the value chain and generate incomes for the nation ten times higher than that of oil sector or any other sector. The time to start is now as the future starts today.»





Agricultural Innovations: Sudanese National Agricultural Summit And Lessons For Nigeria (I) | @mkothman1, @LeadershipNGA





«Today, agriculture is the mainstay of Sudan economy, employing 80 per cent of the workforce and contributing 39 per cent of its GDP, despite adverse weather and other challenges associated with agriculture in developing countries. With the lifted economic sanction and Sudan’s enthusiasm to develop agriculture, the Sudan government organised a week National Agricultural Summit from 23rd to 29th March, 2018.

[...]

“We receive much government support for agricultural and horticultural projects in Sudan. This allows us to invest in the cultivation and quality of our techniques. One hundred million US Dollars has been budgeted (by government) for the next five years.” The strategy of Sudan Government to provide subsidy to the inputs supplier as in the case of Zadna, is producing the desired results. This is because the seedlings’ production has tremendously increased over the years. CTC and Zadna are examples of government support to private sector for the development of Agriculture in Sudan. How are public owned research Institutes performing? What are the lessons to Nigeria from the Sudan National Agricultural Summit?»

Leadership and Innovation: The soft and hard sides | @odjayousi, @newsofbahrain





«Organizations and nations are shaped by transformative leaders who can make a difference and swim upstream and who can do good things in bad times. The western film industry vividly showed the human face of leadership which captured our imagination in compelling stories as reflected in The Iron Lady, Margaret Thatcher, who transformed economy and markets; Hidden Figures which showed how women scientists made contributions in math; Mother Theresa of Calcutta painted fascinating images for women leadership in the public sphere. These models of innovative leadership are in demand but scarce and highly needed in all domains and levels of organizations. Besides, ensuring a gender balance of leadership is vital for innovation since “Men build houses, but women build homes”.»

The right moves: Architects delivering value with leadership, creativity and innovation | @PaulMcNeive, @IndoBusiness





«David Browne, Managing Partner of RKD Architects, has taken over as President of the Royal Institute of the Architects of Ireland (RIAI) for 2018/19. He comes to the role determined that "architects will deliver best value to their clients and society, by showing leadership, creativity and innovation." I met him at RIAI headquarters to discuss the architects' perspective on design, planning and construction.

One of his first initiatives has been to appoint a panel of spokespeople to comment on major issues such as the National Development Plan. "In the past, architects have avoided speaking as publicly as they might" but Browne thinks it important that "the measured voice of architecture" is readily available to comment on important topics.

Architects play an important role in working with government and shaping legislation that has an impact on the built environment - such as the new apartment guidelines and building controls. Browne wants to see that work ramped up, with architects "moving more into the public eye".»

These fantastic four superheroes of digital transformation are finally earning their stripes | Dan Hartveld, @CIOonline





«The theories are sound, the strategies are clear, the plans are robust – from a purely ideological perspective, CIOs in retail have all the evidence they need to round up their data and put it to work in the digital stores which are fast becoming the only way to ensure success in a tech-enabled industry.

But, as the saying goes, an ounce of practice is worth a ton of theory, and it can be tricky to clear the commitment hurdle without some pretty compelling evidence to prove your business case for transformation. As with all emerging business concepts, retailers who aren’t prepared to take the long view rely on those who are more forward-thinking to take the risks and make the case for them.

Fortunately for the more cautious CIOs, the early adopters and pioneers who saw what was happening to the industry and decided to take a leap of faith are now seeing some solid results coming from four fundamental initiatives: omnichannel, on-demand fulfillment, personalization and core capabilities – the results are in and they’re robust enough to convince even the most risk-averse CIOs.»

Digital Transformation is More Than Just the Technology | @jabil, vía @iotforall, @Medium





«When discussions arise around a digital transformation journey, the focus is generally put on the technology. After all, in theory, it is technologies like machine learning, artificial intelligence, automation and additive manufacturing that drive the efficiencies and speed companies long for.

But digital transformation is not all about the technology. Digital transformation shifts the mindset of how organizations create value for their end-customers, and none of that would be possible without educated and agile employees. The technology is great, but companies need to ensure they are educating and empowering employees along the way.

Jabil’s 2018 Digital Transformation Trends Survey reveals that even though human factor challenges, like employee pushback and changing organizational structures, are getting easier to mitigate since 2016, 74% still find these cultural and organizational changes harder to navigate than technology changes.»

A Modern IT Architecture For Delivering Digital Transformation | @hansangb, @forbes





«Digital Transformation. This topic has been taking over the conversation in executive meetings for a couple of years now and seems to be an unstoppable trend, thanks to the speed at which technology is improving.

As this change enables faster innovation, businesses are realizing that digital transformation gives them a massive edge on their competition, regardless of industry. It goes without saying that experiencing something so transformative requires fundamental disruption at all levels of an organization, causing customary lines of separation between functional areas of a business to become less defined.

This disruption extends to the relationship between customer and user, data and applications, and also to areas impacted by security strategies, and will potentially reshape how these elements are defined. So what potential realities should business leaders be considering as we sprint towards this future and look to drive digital performance?»
