Contemporary Management Cases in Africa


Ayuba A. Aminu
University of Maiduguri

The book Contemporary Management Cases in Africa is a true reflection of company and organizational happenings in work environment in Africa. This book addresses many issues pertaining to workers suffering either deliberately done or in error. It sights cases of harassment in both private and public sector and the infringement of the fundamental rights of workers.

Students, practicing and future managers will find the book interesting because they have either come across a similar case or they might in the future encounter the same type of cases. The book is distinct in the sense that it bears no relation with anyone. Some of the cases are very interesting, sympathetic and emotional.
