Akilade Ayotunde's insight:

Application of the principle to interventions, so that diverse efforts work in unison and not at cross purposes(synchronization), such that they pull together and maximize the effect of individual contributions- the screed is positively eloquent.

Akilade Ayotunde's insight:

Exactly, with the addition that on a farming programme, the radiating filaments also determine when hectarage is rolled back or added on and the hub assembles, packs and dispatches produce. It's actually two hubs-and-spokes super-imposed on each other, the production and concentration and the planning and marketing.

Akilade Ayotunde's insight:

The basis of the investment- the private proprietor on his own acres- seeking to extend a helping hand to those who can feed five times their current population but at present import two-thirds of their food, chose the hub-and- spoke as the vehicle of investment. Yes, "the centre holding" is half the battle as this exporter of success has recognized.....

"The long-term vision is for this hub and spoke model that's holistic and provides a wide range of programming," Vsetula said.
Akilade Ayotunde's insight:

From food bank to food hub erases a perceived stigma. My concern is different- the concept lifts the burden of connecting from the shoulders of both producer and grocer, their link, the supply chain, self-operating......

Akilade Ayotunde's insight:

A clearly delineated production and processing flow path does wonders- it vacuums up all the produce( marketing nodes resolved), the spoke outgrower concentrating its energies on cultivation.

The social graph exhibits a two-tiered hub and spoke structure with Rappler (@rapplerdotcom) as the central hub with an influence index of 1 (the highest).
Akilade Ayotunde's insight:

This model approximates to what I have in mind- outward bound traffic(agricultural inputs) and inward bound traffic(fresh produce), the plantation and processing centre as the hub and outgrowers on the periphery, the spokes radiating to them.

The company will adopt the so-called hub and spoke model for deeper penetration into the continent, he said.
Akilade Ayotunde's insight:

An entire business empire, using its existing beach-heads as radiating hubs and extending filaments outwards- and not only that but pursuing both vertical and horizontal integration within as a flanking movement in this great investment drive, its agricultural business included(sourcing produce for external markets).....alllowing the smallholder access through an established network.

Mr Talbot said producers and small food businesses should look at implementing a "hub and spoke" model to provide the technology and knowledge to sell into overseas markets.
Akilade Ayotunde's insight:

Taking the battle to the 'enemy'- frontiers are elatic these days, so much so that a 'spoke' can radiate into 'hubs' sited at what would have been regarded as immeasurable distances away. Now dispersion is not a constraint and the food value chain has very interesting ramifications, destinations at 'astronomical' distances...

Akilade Ayotunde's insight:

Classical use of the 'Colossus' as a locomotive to the mutual benefit of all, conferring a species of economies-of-scale on the whole by bulk sourcing of inputs, combined releases of produce and co-ordinated production. Market penetration can be and is often assured....
