Thesis Title: 
Business goals of Zimbabwe business leaders
Year of Degree: 
2006

I am researching on value chain resilience and responsiveness to political risk. I am studying how the cotton value chain in Zimbabwe has managed political risk, compared to the tobacco industry. The background is that the cotton industry in Zimbabwe has thrived after the chaotic 'land reform programme'while the tobacco value chain has been in dramatic decline. I contend that the lead firms in the tobacco value chain, compared to the cotton sub-sector, did not manage political risk actively and properly, leaving the whole value chain exposed and consequently uncompetitive after the 'land reform programme'.
