Global Manufacturing Technology Transfer: Africa-USA Strategies, Adaptations, and Management presents practical strategies for developing and sustaining manufacturing technology transfers. It is particularly useful for helping developing nations achieve and sustain a solid footing of economic development through manufacturing. The book examines Africa and USA trade relations to demonstrate how modern technology innovation strategies can be developed and harmonized to keep a nation moving forward economically. It then explores how to advance existing technical relationships through new and updated approaches.

The book uses the case and template of trade relations of Africa and the United States to demonstrate how technology innovation strategies can be developed and harmonized to keep a nation moving forward economically. The author discusses project management tools, highlights manufacturing as the foundation for economic development, and explores lessons learned. He details a systems approach, covering both qualitative and quantitative tools and techniques. Although focusing on Africa-USA technology transfer, the concepts are applicable to other technology transfer relationships.

Africa is poised to assume a leading role in global manufacturing. However, the foundation for doing so successfully will depend on the development and sustainability of a reliable manufacturing infrastructure in Africa. A key requirement for this will be new and innovative mechanisms for technology transfer. This book gives you the strategies required to address each technology transfer path as well as new innovative approaches for developing and transferring new technology.

Review:

"Filled with redemptive insights, this superbly crafted book lays out top-down and bottom-up foundations of Africa-USA strategies for manufacturing technology transfer with affirming messages."
―B. Rae Cho, Clemson University

"Industrialization usually implies advancement in technology as a tool for transforming society’s socioeconomic development. No society can experience meaningful, vibrant and sustainable economic progress without a strong manufacturing base. This has, for long, been the missing component in most developing economies. The book, Global Manufacturing Technology Transfer, is an excellent and unique compilation of just-in-time resources covering needed insights, strategies and techniques as a useful guide for highlighting the missing links in manufacturing technology transfer between developed and developing nations. It is a revealing and compellingly readable account of case examples of manufacturing technology transfer between USA and most African nations."
―Emmanuel S. Eneyo, Southern Illinois University Edwardsville

"The book is written by a distinguished author and is on an especially topical issue... Technology Transfer will become an increasingly important in Africa and industrial engineering will play a key role in effecting the transfer of important technologies and processes"
―Bopaya Bidanda, University of Pittsburgh

"This book is a timely arrival to the African Manufacturing development sector. As alluded by the author in the preface, "This book is operationally focused with adaptive contents to fit the needs of different global audience." I encourage African government leaders, academicians, researchers, individuals, investors and entrepreneurs to take advantage of the contents."
―Celestine A. Ntuen, North Carolina A&T State University

"With a view on global applicability and emphasis on the manufacturing sector, this book provides a clear and comprehensive analysis of technology transfer and its role in economic development and global competition. It lays the foundation upon which countries and communities can adopt, adapt, and refine the concepts embodied in technology transfer to better reposition themselves in the global economic market place."
―Pius Egbelu, Professor, New Jersey Institute of Technology

At a first glance at the title of this book, a reader may be tempted to ask "Why Africa?" The next steps in reading it answer that question very neatly. It makes a strong case for looking at the emerging manufacturing base in Africa based on a number of meetings and experiences that are cited. It goes well beyond that scope to provide ways of thinking about manufacturing as a truly complex worldwide system. I recommend it for scholars and practioners alike."
―F. Stan Settles, University of Southern California
