To state that, in a globalizing world, cooperation across cultures is needed to bring about prosperity and mutual gain seems self-evident. In the context of global value creation we need to think and act across borders. However, what exactly might form the basis and success factors of such cooperation? And what does this imply for leadership strategies?

At the annual Transcultural Leadership Summit at the Zeppelin University in Friedrichshafen, Germany, these topics are tackled in depth. This publication assembles the contributions of various speakers at the Summit held in 2017, following the Summit's title "Learning about Sub-Saharan Africa” and continuing some of the key reflections and discussions raised throughout the event.

Considering current developments, including the worldwide reach of value chains and political and societal initiatives, Sub-Saharan Africa has high potential for being the next hub of globalization. Global value creation opens up new opportunities, not only in terms of the development of countries individually, but also in terms of cross-border cooperation and transcultural processes in business and society - this is what the title "Learning about Sub-Saharan Africa" is all about. Exchanging ideas about successful cooperation between Sub-Saharan Africa and Germany, telling success stories, learning from each other, being creative and open-minded - all these are features that lie at the core of the concept of transculturality. This book aims to contribute to this endeavour.
