EMPIRICAL EVIDENCE FROM BOAMAH ET AL. SUPPORT THE AFRICAN SAYING "FATHERS ARE FEATHERS": USEFULNESS OF MENTORSHIP FOR EARLY CAREER RESEARCHERS AND YOUNG ENTREPRENEURS.
By Adebayo Opabunmi, OAAD Department of Welfare & Member Progress.
African culture strongly values tacit transference of knowledge; the less experienced fly unto greater achievements riding on the wings of more experienced persons.
Fredrick Ahenkora Boamah (PhD Candidate of the School of Management Engineering, Zhengzhou University)
The findings of Boamah et al (2022) in two African countries as extracted from construction project workers may form precursors for our exploration and understanding of factors that may be contributing to the flourishing of mentorship amongst thousands of early career researchers and young entrepreneurs in OAAD.

This observed formation of strong relationships amongst African Researchers and Entrepreneurs is an ongoing accumulation of intergenerational resources which shall serve Africa’s sustainable development beyond what we are able to see now.
The entire family of OAAD hereby uses this opportunity to felicitate with Frederick and his collaborators for a job well done as regards their recently published research article titled “An Empirical Study on the Sharing of Tacit Knowledge by Construction Project Workers in Sub-Saharan Africa” in the journal of Knowledge Management Research and Practice, IF 3.05.
