Burkina Faso and Senegal

It is often argued that developing countries can accelerate their economic growth if they copy knowledge of the modern Western society. Diametrically opposed are ones who believe that Western knowledge does not suit the cultural and intellectual traditions of developing countries and therefore will not be effective. But there are also moderate experts who occupy an intermediate position, namely that knowledge should be stripped of specific Western values and should be adapted to local values. Against this background Honorine Illa studied management styles in Burkina Faso and Senegal.
