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 Company’s 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.

The Effects of Organizational Trust on Knowledge Sharing, Organizational Learning and Academic Satisfaction of International Students in Taiwan

Problem Statement Nowadays, due to the high level of competition among people, classmates, coworkers, universities and organizations, it is becoming very difficult to observe trust between people from the same company or organization. In this regard, people will tend to hind information, data and any other tools that could put that in the best position for their own competitive advantage. By not having trust inside the organization and not sharing the knowledge between people will tend to decrease the performance and the competitive advantage of the organizational learning. Nevertheless, it is important for all those involved in the organization to learn and create new knowledge in order to maintain and improve the performance of all those in the organization, including the organization itself. From knowledge management theories, organizational satisfaction is one of the result of the service provided by the organization to those in which are enrolled.

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.

Open Innovation, Reverse Knowledge Sharing and SME performance

Open Innovation, Reverse Knowledge Sharing and SME performance

and reverse knowledge sharing in developing regions, mainly the Asian countries. As a result, this study will be conducted in Vietnam. There are two main reasons why this research aims at Vietnam. Firstly, Vietnam has played an increasingly important role as a proactive member in international business activities such as joining negotiations to build up free trade frameworks, and through participating deeply and comprehensively in multi-lateral forums. Secondly, Vietnam is becoming a favoured manufacturing location for high-tech multinational enterprises such as Intel, LG Electronics, Nokia and Samsung because of its cost effective advantages. Thirdly, the majority of foreign companies in Vietnam usually set up partnerships with domestic firms so low-tech enterprises have more opportunity to access advanced technologies. The sample population for this research was taken from manufacturing and services companies in Ho Chi Minh City. The population was restricted to one city rather than the whole nation due to differences in geography, level of economic development, and presence of major industry between states. Ho Chi Minh City, located in the southern part of Vietnam, with a population of over nine million is a center of commerce, economy and finance in Vietnam. There were 58394 SMEs (23.3%) of the 250689 registered SMEs in Vietnam operating business in Ho Chi Minh in the year of 2008 (Table 3.1). In the same year, the number of small and medium-sized businesses accounted for 23.5% and 21% respectively.

sector agencies throughout the country. Therefore, sample’s representativeness is a notable concern of this study. A study with more national coverage could reveal more disparities in various regions and the sector is encouraged for future research. Secondly, the population empirically studied were public-sector employees. Therefore, in the process of applying the results of the study to other kinds of occupational employees, care should be taken. Also, beware that the employees of those public agencies are full-time working professionals. Collecting data of employees from different contexts and categories can increase the generalizability of the research model of this study. Thirdly, this study measured attitudes to KS instead of the actual behavior to KS. Various studies have presented that behavior to KS and attitude to KS are different to some degree. Additionally, the affective commitment items in OC were used instead of all three components in OC. Finally, by means of survey method, this study is also limited for cross sectional design which implies that the population under study is obtained and analyzed from a representative subset. This technique undermines the changing patterns of the population across time which would could not represent the relationship between independent and dependent variables accurately.

In relation to the support from top management, the mean score for TM3 which indicated that top management provides rewards in efforts of building a knowledge sharing culture (M=3.21) was the lowest. Goodman and Darr (1998) study indentified rewards as an important element in fostering a knowledge sharing culture. With that said, management may need to consider providing adequate rewards in order to developing such a culture. This may indicate how much top management values knowledge sharing. When it comes to organization structure, two items OS1 and OS4 had the lowest mean scores. Therefore in order to increase the flexibility of the organization structure, management may consider addressing issues related to delegation of power and employee participation in decision making. Management may also encourage horizontal communication among members in organization units/ departments as a way to improve employees’ perceptions of organization structure’s flexibility.

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 company’s 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 Taiwan’s 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.

Therefore, financial institution and its clients were influenced In Taiwan, financial industry may effect Taiwan’s economic. In Taiwan, financial industry is very important. They are many industry rely on financial institution to survive. Financial industry is the engine for economic growth hence if we have financial crisis it will have huge impact to other industries. There are three major genres for global financial crisis. First, it’s all about human frailty. But there’s a whole world of explanations that it’s the predatory instincts. The delusion of investors and the greed and all the rest of it. The second genre is that there are institutional failures. Regulators were asleep at the switch. We look at the institutional level and say that has failed and that has to be reconfigured. The third genre is to say, everybody was obsessed with a false theory. They read too much Hayek and believe in the efficiency of markets. And it’s time we actually got back to something like Keynes. Or we took seriously Hyman Minski’s theory about the inherent instability of financial activities. Out of this comes a theory which is very, very important that Capitalism never solves its crisis problems. It moves them around geographically and what we’re seeing right now is a geographical movement of that. In order to fully explore the global financial crisis. A KMS system influence model was build in this study.

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.
