Organizational Wisdom in 100 African Proverbs

An Introduction to Organizational Paremiology

by Chiku Malunga

Organizational Wisdom in 100 African Proverbs introduces a new field of study and practice called Organizational Paremiology. Based on many years of practice the author demonstrates how we can use the wisdom in African proverbs in efforts to improve the performance of organizations of all types. Building on the proverb, "Until the lions have their own writers, the story of the hunt will always glorify the hunter", the book aims at putting the often ignored and marginalized African indigenous wisdom at the center of global development discourse and agenda.
