Plans are Underway to Create Kenya’s First Management Book


The editors, Dr. Bitange Ndemo and Tim Weiss, seek to enhance and invigorate together with practitioners and scholars the dialog surrounding business environments and entrepreneurship in Kenya. The book is strategically positioned to contribute to the international management literature on startups, (ICT) entrepreneurship, business environments and doing business in Africa. Current publications tend to span the whole of Sub-Saharan Africa thereby omitting the opportunity to study one context in-depth. “Digital Kenya | The new generation of entrepreneurs” will allow an unprecedented insight into the dynamics of the most “hyped” ecosystem on the African continent. The editors aspire to establish this book as a central point of reference for Kenyans, Africans and beyond.

Kenya is seen as one of the most important gateways to other African markets. Comprehending the dynamics and peculiarities in Kenya’s Information and Communications Technology (ICT) ecosystem is the first step in inspiring a series of publications in the African management and business literature.

A book created by practitioners and scholars is a unique opportunity to document past developments and give a future outlook for the generations to come. Practitioners share their best-practices and opinions while scholars embed the discourse in important theoretical frameworks. Overall, this book aims to engage scholars, practitioners and experts across disciplines in an examination and debate of entrepreneurship and Kenya’s business environment. The book will be composed of up to 15 high quality chapters together with 10 profiles of entrepreneurs.

With a call for chapters that can be accessed via the homepage the editors invite innovative, interesting, unconventional, relevant and counterintuitive chapter proposals that address theoretical and empirical aspects of entrepreneurship and Kenya’s business environment.

Potential authors can submit chapter proposal (up to 1,000 words) until January 31st, 2015 on the themes that include, but are not limited to, the following: History and Future; Entrepreneurial Mindset and Business Ventures; Kenyan Investors and International Investors; Organizational Culture, Strategy Tools and Management Practices; Entrepreneurial Profiles. Detailed information on the call for chapters and on the book can be accessed on the book’s homepage.

Some authors have already been confirmed: Conrad Akunge, Innova & iHUB; Erik Hersman, BRCK, ushahidi & iHUB; Jimmy Gitonga,ArkAfrica; Mark Kaigwa, Nendo.
