Measuring the Effect of Trust, Organizational Learning on Taiwan ICT Company's Innovation and Business Performance

First, literatures stated that trust can help innovation to develop (Hurley & Hult, 1998; Landry, Amara, and Lamari, 2002; Panayides & Venus Lun, 2009). Although trust doesn’t have any impact on innovation, the results of this study showed that trust has a significant and positive impact on organizational learning, and organizational learning has a significant and positive impact on innovation. Therefore, in this study, it found that trust indeed helped innovation, however, trust didn’t help innovation in a direct way. In fact, trust helped innovation in an indirect way. Within the PLS findings, the trust become the key factor that affects organizational learning, innovation, and business performance. This implies that the more trust an organization has, it can lead to the higher performance of the organization. In other words, this study suggests that organizations should put their resources to the most important factor, which is trust in order to work more effectively and achieve the goals. In terms of trust dimension, concerning the employee has the highest point.

Examining the Effect of Motivation, Knowledge Sharing, Knowledge Creation Process, and Innovation on The Gambia Telecom and Cellular Company’s Performance

Examining the Effect of Motivation, Knowledge Sharing, Knowledge Creation Process, and Innovation on The Gambia Telecom and Cellular Company’s Performance

I ABSTRACT In today’s global business, competition is fierce and is gaining momentum across frontiers, and organisations are working hard to keep performance steady and sustainable. The phenomenon of organisation performance is not peculiar in the management science researches, as such numerous studies has been conducted on it. However, measuring it was considered a difficult task in the sense it entails critical and salient dimensions that sometimes makes it hard to measure. Therefore, it’s multidimensional. Notwithstanding the magnitude of study on organisational performance, focus on sub-Saharan countries, especially in The Gambia has limited literatures. This study aims to examine the effect of motivation, knowledge creation process, knowledge sharing, and innovation on The Gambia Telecom and Cellular Companys performance. It is important to note that this study is non-comparative instead treating the two companies as one based on their commonalities both in terms of management practices and operation mode. Most importantly, for easy access to diverse employees for convenient data collection, thus help present justifiable and reasonable results. The research approach was typically quantitative and Partial Least Squares (PLS) was purely used to analyse the obtained data, with a total of 206 valid participants who completed online questionnaires. The participants of this study included employees of both (Gamtel/Gamcel), which excluded auxiliary staff, contract staff and trainees. The results reveal that both motiving factors has a positive and significant effect on knowledge sharing. Likewise, knowledge sharing and innovation has positive and significant effect on organizational performance. On the other hand, knowledge creation process has a weak effect on knowledge sharing thus the null hypothesis for this relationship was accepted.

Influence of System Trust on Customer Loyalty: The Mediating Effect of Organizational and Interpersonal Trust

Influence of System Trust on Customer Loyalty: The Mediating Effect of Organizational and Interpersonal Trust

2.1.3 Interpersonal Trust (IPT) Interpersonal trust comprises the foundation of interactions between individuals, and includes individual cognition and emotions related to specific incidents, processes or individuals. Interpersonal trust is formed over a long period, and results from the accumulated experiences of both parties that gradually form a trust system (Dwyer et al., 1987; Hardin, 1992). Rotter (1980) asserted that a close relationship exists between the level of interpersonal trust and socio-economic status. For instance, children from families with high socio-economic status generally have high levels of interpersonal trust, whereas those from low social status families feel that they have little reason to trust others due to personal dissatisfaction and their realization of the benefits enjoyed by those with power and denied to themselves. The levels of interpersonal trust and reliability are strongly related.

The Effects of Knowledge Management Strategies on Innovation and Business Performance in Information Technology Industry

The Effects of Knowledge Management Strategies on Innovation and Business Performance in Information Technology Industry

For the last century, the world has swiftly moves from its industrial economic base, which mostly depends on tangible assets, toward a knowledge base which is tied to the capability of developing and managing knowledge resources. The knowledge economy is built on continuous dynamic value creation, and profits are increasingly coming from knowledge creation, integration, and system-solutions instead of from tangible assets. This change is uprising globally due to the increase of travellers, expenditures, immigration, and communication technologies, making the world more connected and interdependent. Globalisation has facilitated the exchange of goods, services, labour, information, and most importantly, the share of unique ideas and knowledge. Beside all the mutual gains brought by globalisation, competitiveness is accordingly increasing. Short product’s life cycles and a rapid change rate in customers’ needs and preferences are considered typical features as well as challenges of the current industrial paradigm.

Introduction In the highly competitive construction industry, top companies are constantly searching for proven practices that offer a com- petitive advantage. These companies generally avoid practices that do not provide proven added value. Several studies have shown that the role of a project manager is critical to project success. Green (2005) showed that an effective project leader is good at managing relationships across organizational functions and boundaries to break through organization inertia and bu- reaucracy. Sauer (1993) suggested that non-technical factors such as management, organization, and culture are associated with project success. Prior studies have shown that managing relationships is critical to project success (Acharya et al., 2006a;

Consultation Paper on Enhancing the Regulation and Supervision of Trust Business

Consultation Paper on Enhancing the Regulation and Supervision of Trust Business

We therefore see the merits of developing a regulatory code to strengthen the level of protection of customers making use of trust services, especially those for wealth management purposes. 17. Financial institutions should treat their customers fairly. Retail banks and private banks in Hong Kong have adopted their respective Treat Customers Fairly Charters to foster a sound corporate culture that supports prudent risk management and contributes towards proper staff behaviour leading to positive customer outcomes and high ethical standards in the banking industry. Treating customers fairly promotes consumer protection, thereby helping enhance customer confidence and trust, and contribute to sustainable development of the industry. Hence, treating customers fairly would also be a key spirit in developing a regulatory code for trust business.

The Effect between UN Global Compact, CSR and Business  Performance of Multinational Companies in Taiwan

The Effect between UN Global Compact, CSR and Business Performance of Multinational Companies in Taiwan

Second, looking only at the UNGC variable, the dominant factor of the UNGC dimension is environment principle. In comparison between IT industry and the other industries the dominant factor remain same for both of them. It is followed by anti-corruption principle. This suggests that the best way to follow the UNGC principles is to increase the effort focused on environmental principles and issues within companies. This means, in concrete terms that managers should be counseled to promote companys commitment and responsibility in terms of environment and anti-corruption principles order to build up CSR awareness. Environmental principle is also important these days, because society has now high demand for environmental behavior from firms and it is more apparent now than it was in Taiwans industrial period. Results also showed that multinational companies have high priority on anti-corruption principles so Taiwan policy makers should be aware to improve regulations in terms of anti-corruption. Two other principles (human rights and labour) have lower impact but it’s for discussion why are these two principles less important for companies. Therefore Taiwan companies should more work on human rights principles and labour principle awareness.

Do founders’ own resources matter? The influences of business networks on start-up innovation and performance

Do founders’ own resources matter? The influences of business networks on start-up innovation and performance

a b s t r a c t The primary objective of this study is to investigate the potential influence of founders’ ties and human capital on organizational innovation and organizational performance. In addition, this study determines whether or not business network mediates the relationship among contextual variables. Accordingly, this work devises a hypothesized model for exploring the links among contextual variables. Accord- ingly, in the conceptual model, business network is conceptualized as a second-order construct comprised of three complementary first-order dimensions: supplier interaction, customer interaction, and competitor interaction. To clarify the relationship among these variables, structural equation modeling (SEM) is used to examine the hypothesized model’s fit and the hypotheses. Using data from a study of 222 start-ups’ founders sampled from China-based Taiwanese small and medium enterprises, the result of SEM clearly demonstrates the mediating role of business network in the relationship between founders’ ties and both organizational innovation and firm performance, as well as in the relationship between founders’ human capital and both organizational innovation and firm perfor- mance. Moreover, this paper illustrates the role of business network in the organizational innovation and organizational performance enhancement through empirical evidence from China-based Taiwa- nese small and medium enterprises, which makes a contribution to the current literature.
