Zimbabwe Introduces $50 Tax on Every Newly Purchased Cell Phone
African governments are grappling with revenue shortfalls exacerbated by covid-19, and have heavily impacted economic status of many countries. From Nigeria, the largest economy in the continent to Gabon, one of the lowest, wretched government purses is driving a range of policies aimed at increasing revenue generation. With gross domestic products (GDP) not in par with population growth, many African states have taken to borrowing, multiple taxation and tax increment as means to upset their revenue shortfalls. Following this trend, Zimbabwe has introduced a raft of new tax measures, including a 5% levy on imported dairy products, a US$50 levy… The post Zimbabwe Introduces $50 Tax on Every Newly Purchased Cell Phone appeared first on Tekedia.

When things are not working in that firm, check if your business model has expired
As markets mature removing the information asymmetry in the demand-supply relationship, DEMAND will shape the future of digital markets and more. To win the future, build business models which work to create leverages and deepen competitive advantages around DEMAND control, not supply.  There is a reason why the more the world gets connected, the more Apple, Facebook, Microsoft, Amazon, Tencent, Alibaba, etc, become more dominant. It is not just that these firms are better operators. What is happening is that their business models are asymptotically attaining stability for the model of the era. When things are not working in that… The post When things are not working in that firm, check if your business model has expired appeared first on Tekedia.

The Smart Genius in Capricorn Limited (II)
After Seun had been successfully interviewed, he waited behind through the whole day till the team was done for the day, so he could have a one-on-one conversation with Adamu. Though Adamu couldn’t graduate with him alongside his set but he (Seun) never had any intuition that he came into the company in disguise; rather, he was of the thought that he might had attended another higher institution after he left the University of Ibadan (U.I). He was preoccupied with the notion that if he familiarized himself with Adamu, it would serve as an aid towards his job hunt. Since… The post The Smart Genius in Capricorn Limited (II) appeared first on Tekedia.

The Smart Genius in Capricorn Limited
“Mister Ken,” Adamu called. “Why were you not on seat yesterday?” He furiously queried. Mr. Adamu Danjuma was the Human Resources Manager (HRM) of Capricon manufacturing company. Between late eighties (1980s) and early nineties (1990s), Capricon was undoubtedly a very notable firm across the federation that everyone, even an imbecile that existed within the stated period, could testify to the fact. Even beyond the period in question, Capricon Nigeria Limited as it was fondly called based on what was inscribed on its major signpost in line with its incorporation, never relented in making the general public and the society at… The post The Smart Genius in Capricorn Limited appeared first on Tekedia.

Certificates and Survival of the Fittest in Careers
Recruiter’s objective is to get the “most fit” candidate for the advertised role. Note that I didn’t say the one with the highest CGPA. About three decades ago, organizations were visiting some reputable institutions to request appointments with the best three students in certain courses – that is no longer the practice these days. I perceive they have come to the reality of the fact that high academic grades don’t always result in high productivity. Charles Darwin was right when he said, “It is not the strongest of the species nor the most intelligent that survives, it is the one… The post Certificates and Survival of the Fittest in Careers appeared first on Tekedia.

Is Your Business Capturing Value Even As You Create Value for Customers?
Your business mission is to deliver value to customers. But it is also important that while doing that, you capture value for yourself. Companies which fail to capture value die. It is not just enough to disrupt the sector; you must capture value during the redesign. In Harvard Business Review, I explained how firms can capture that value through new business models like the Double Play Strategy. Simply, you must have a playbook where value, for you, will come even as you deliver value to your customers? Do not be like Skype which found a way to deliver value for… The post Is Your Business Capturing Value Even As You Create Value for Customers? appeared first on Tekedia.
