"This work is a copy of the original thesis submitted to the Gordon Institute of Business Science (GIBS), an Institute of the University of Pretoria, in fulfilment of the Doctor of Philosophy degree. The research site of the study was Levubu in the Limpopo province of South Africa." 

Supervised by Professor Albert Wöcke.

"The empirical base for the study comprises a case study of the Mauluma Farming Enterprise, an agribusiness at the centre of the land reform process in South Africa. The longitudinal study portrays colonisation and apartheid as social processes that shaped the agribusiness sector into small worlds of cognition. Boundary spanner brokerage is proposed as a method of promoting sustainable strategic relationships between organisations on either side of the cognitive divide."
