  1. @Phelelani Mpanza thank you for sharing your current involvements with us and congratulations on tremendous achievements you have obtained by now. Keep it Up!!!

    Kindly share with us based on the following question:

    What are the possible factors that might be affecting the lack of SOE’s desired performance particularly in South African Economic/business growth?

      1. In order for SA SOEs to get the desired financial performance, they would have to introduce new products and tap in to new markets. The current products which are offered by most SOEs with the exception of Transnet because they are a monopoly in their industry.

        1. So, the fundamental question here is, how can small businesses avoid falling into the same trap as the SOEs? What are the opportunities available for them to equip themselves for the 4th industrial revolution?

          1. SMMEs must be prepared for changes and take advantage. Small business must integrate systems and technologies presented by the 4th Industrial Revolution. Entrepreneur must learn from the Nokia case study.

    1. The critical factors affecting SA SOEs is the lack of commercialization of its products, lack of PPP that results into profits, having a conpenetent Boards and Executives who can deliver on the strategy and lastly corruption.

        1. Some SOE’s require an extensive Business mode restructuring (For instance, SAA needs to own aircraft as opposed to leasing. Eskom need to move towards energy mix to meet the energy demand in the country)

          SOE must be less political interference and employee senior management with the righ skills set.

          SOE must consider doing merger or acquisition of strategic companies who supplier core asset of their operations.

          SOEs profits and supplier and but reinvestment in to capital projects to create funding surplus for further projects

  2. Speaking about the lack of commercialization of owned business products, Are we standing a good chance to achieve this gap?

    What tools or strategies can businesses adapt to fill the gap of product commercialization?

    1. i Know this might sound unfair depending on from which perspective you view it. But from a business perspective, to achieve commercialization means efficiency and profits. These two phenomenon comes with retrenchment of over staffed SOEs. Even going further to owning a portion of IPPs for an example to get profits. So the business model must look beyond the immediate operations of the Perantal SOE

        1. Well, the book focused on the impact of three forms of capital (1. Economic, 2. Human and 3. Social Capital) being used to grow an established business such as our SOEs which are struggling.

          Any business needs Economics Capital (money) to start new projects and make profits.

          Any business needs Human Capital (Skilled and experienced staff) to create new product become more innovative.

          Any business need management that is connected to industry captains to be alert of new developments before implementing
