The Igbo Apprenticeship System Article

The Igbo Apprenticeship System Article

The Igbo Apprenticeship System work has passed the first phase of editorial work at Harvard. We have more phases to go, but everything is looking fine. Due to the nature of the topic, it is taking time.

I have also defined the IAS thus: “The Igbo Apprenticeship System is a business philosophy of shared prosperity where participants co-opetitively participate to attain organic economic equilibrium where accumulated market leverageable factors are constantly weighted and calibrated out, via dilution and surrendering of market share, enabling social resilience and formation of livable clusters, engineered by major participants funding their competitors, with success measured on quantifiable support to stakeholders, and not by absolute market dominance.”

My postulation is that everything the world is looking for, to reduce inequality, the Igbo Apprenticeship System has frameworks which could be adapted, for the rise of all.

  1. This article and editorial work is what I would like to follow to the end. The participants of the IAS business philosophy have common goals and aspirations and the system can be seen as a perfect example of shared destiny.

      1. Ndubuisi, truly the system is gradually dying a natural death and I recently thought of how it could be re-engineered through a kind of Community Business College that would be a step below the present higher institutions system but a step above JSS/SSS system. Definitely outside the federal governt curriculum because it will be nearly impossible for the entire country to embrace it.
