This, presented by Prof. Mark Swilling, will entail an understanding of four dimensions of this endeavour: (a) the way South African economic history has been understood from a political economy perspective; (b) the dynamics of post-1994 economic policy making and why the challenge of radical economic restructuring has not been adequately addressed; (c) the challenge of state capture from the perspective of the literature on neo-patrimonialism; and (d) potential alternatives, including industrial policy, radical green economy developments, ‘radical economic transformation’ and Fanonist perspectives on resistance and change....

How our program differs…
Historically, Workplace Diversity programmes have focused on building awareness of and appreciation for differences in race, ethnic origin, gender, and religious preference. Beyond awareness and appreciation is the need for skill-building in intercultural relations.
Our research identifies the intercultural perspective to be, perhaps, the most important factor to consider when managing relationships in today’s global workplace.
Our research builds upon the foundations laid by CQ Pioneers Earley, Ang, & Tan (2006), Bucher (2008), and Livermore (2011). To that research, Ridley-Smith (2015), has described the dynamic, iterative model of interchange that should exist between newcomers and their host culture members. This intercultural exchange is so powerful that, when used, it all but guarantees a mutually beneficial and rewarding CQ exchange and organizational outcomes. However, when any of the iterative components are missing, both entities will experience the result of low CQ and diminished organizational effectiveness. As such, this course promotes a symbiotic (SYM-Q™) approach to intercultural relations. The SYM-B™ inventory assesses which among the five focus areas are the strongest and weakest. Our training programmes, consultancies, and coaching will help you to chart a course that will increase your organizational CQ. Members of your organization will conclude, "CQ is for us!"...
