Join Dr. Du Toit as she describes how South African companies are using CI to improve their competitiveness.

 

The third in our series of CI Division educational webinar programs, State (and State-of-the-Art) of CI and KM in Emerging Markets: BRICS, focuses on South Africa. Adeline du Toit, extraordinary professor at the University of Pretoria will provide an overview of Competitive Intelligence in South Africa. Because of the country’s unique history, diversity, geography and political landscape, Competitive Intelligence is a contemporary issue. South Africa as a net exporter of strategic minerals and the ‘gateway’ to Africa has an internal environment ideally suited to the use of Competitive Intelligence by companies to gain the competitive edge in a developing domestic economy and a challenging external environment.  CI is one of the fastest growing domains and could enhance the competitiveness of South African companies in the global economy.

 

Learning objectives:

  1. Understanding the current state of competitive intelligence in South Africa
  2. Understanding the challenges faced by CI practitioners in South Africa

  3. Learn how CI professionals can nurture CI capacity in the industry.

 

About the speaker:

Adeline du Toit was for ten years head of the Department of Information and Knowledge Management at the University of Johannesburg and developed the first course on CI analyses in South Africa which was offered to industry. For three years, she was the chair of the SCIP chapter in South Africa and received the SCIP Catalyst Award in 2014. She is on the scientific committee of the Competitive Intelligence and Strategic Management Centre in Morocco, on the editorial board of the Journal of Intelligence Studies in Business and has published more than 30 articles on CI in international journals.

"Balance for Oil, Imbalance for LNG?" (recorded webcast) Center for Strategic & International Studies

https://www.csis.org/events/balance-oil-imbalance-lng

"The CSIS Energy and National Security Program is pleased to host Fereidun Fesharaki, Founder and Chairman of FGE, for a presentation and discussion on the current state of global oil and gas markets, one balancing as the other appears to tip toward imbalance.

Oil markets are struggling to reach a balance, and with robust demand growth and continued OPEC cutbacks, a balance might be reached in the 2017/2018 period. LNG markets are facing a prolonged period of imbalance, perhaps through about 2023, before a balance can be reached. While many advocate new U.S. LNG projects, around 50% of the projects currently under construction have still not been sold to end users.

Dr. Fesharaki's work is recognized worldwide for pioneering oil and gas market analysis since the early 1980s. Born in Iran, he received his Ph.D. in economics from the University of Surrey in England. He then completed a visiting fellowship at Harvard University’s Center for Middle Eastern Studies. He joined the East West Center in 1979, where he led the Energy program for two decades. FGE offices are spread around the world in 8 locations with heavy emphasis on Asia and the Middle East.
