  • The Effects of Total Quality Management Practices and Marketing on
           Performance of SMEs. A Case of Selected Manufacturing Industries, Greece

    • Authors: Stavros Ioannis Kalogiannidis
      Pages: 48 - 62
      Abstract: Most global studies have to a greater extent underscored the importance of Total quality management practices and some marketing aspects concerning organizational performance. Most studies have focused on establishing the level to which TQM practices influence customer satisfaction and not the whole organization. There is also little evidence on how marketing practices influence organizational performance. This study therefore seeks to assess the impact of Total Quality management practices and marketing on organizational performance. Data was collected from a sample size of 289 respondents who were employees of the different manufacturing industries in Greece. Data was analyzed using SPSS and Pearson’s rank correlation coefficient was used to establish the relationship between study variables. The study findings confirmed the presence of a relationship between TQM practices and organizational performance. Similarly there was a positive relationship between marketing practices and organizational performance. The study concluded that the TQM practices and marketing are great influencers of quality hence should always be applied in organizations.

  • The Influence of Instagram Influencers’ Activity on Green
           Consumption Behavior

    • Authors: Sanaz Saghati Jalali, Haliyana Binti Khalid
      Pages: 78 - 90
      Abstract: Nowadays, environmental problems are rising due to the individuals’ consumption behaviour, which necessitates serious attention. Consumers gradually become aware of the effect of their consumption behaviour on the environment and make a difference. Social media, particularly Instagram, play a major role in increasing awareness and promoting environmentally friendly behaviour. Hence, it is crucial to investigate the impact of Instagram on green consumption intention, which is the best predictor of behaviour. By reviewing the existing literature, the current study develops a conceptual model regarding the effect of Instagram influencers’ green activity on followers’ intention. As the model proposes, green attitude and green consumption intention are shaped among followers by the Instagram influencers’ green concern, green photo content, and green word of mouth (WOM). Additionally, it is proposed that the perceived credibility of followers moderated the link between green WOM and green consumption intention. The study contributes to the body of knowledge by developing a new model that helps identify green consumption intention determinants.

  • Determinants of Web-technology Investment in Malaysian Logistics Industry:
           An Application of Technological, Organizational and Environmental (TOE)

    • Authors: Nuraishah Raimee, Intan Salwani Mohamed, Nabilah Rozzani
      Pages: 91 - 107
      Abstract: This study is intended to seek empirical evidence on factors determining web technology investment in the Malaysian logistics industry. Technological, Organizational and Environmental (TOE) Model is used as a basis to examine the determinants of web technology investments under three characteristics; technological characteristics (technology competence and web functionalities); organizational characteristics (firm size, firm scope, and managerial beliefs); and environmental characteristics (regulatory support and pressure intensity). Questionnaire surveys were sent to 169 companies listed in the directory of the Malaysian logistics industry. It was found that five factors (web functionalities (WF), firm size (FZ), managerial beliefs (MB), regulatory support (RS), and pressure intensity (PI)) significantly influenced web technology investment. This study provides a greater understanding on the perceptions of the Malaysian logistics industry towards web technology investment.

  • Socio-Economic Implications of Covid19 Pandemic to Women Entrepreneurs: A
           Case of the Informal Sector in Zimbabwe

    • Authors: lovemore chikazhe, Rahabhi Mashapure, Desderio Chavhunduka, Purity Hamunakwadi
      Pages: 1 - 15
      Abstract: The purpose of the study was to establish the effect of Covid-19 pandemic to women entrepreneurs in the informal sector of Zimbabwe. A qualitative study was conducted in Mashonaland West province in Zimbabwe. Data was collected through telephone interviews from 16 informal business women entrepreneurs in the retail sector. The participants were involved businesses that include; vegetable vending, operating clothing flea market and cross border trading. The study established that business for women entrepreneurs in the informal sector were affected by inter-province travelling regulations. It was also established that women were most affected as they are responsible for making sure that children are fed on daily basis. To make matters worse, some were widows and others were looking after many orphans. This to a larger extent encouraged cases of strained relationship in the home because of inadequate resources especially food. Cases were also reported of gender-based violence because all members of the family were now spending most of their time together with little resources to use in looking after the family. Thus, health problems such as high blood pressure and were also witnessed. The study recommended the government to provide protective equipment and sanitizers to women entrepreneurs and informal traders so that they can safely continue to produce, distribute and sell their merchandise. The government should assist with transport for smallholder farmers to ferry their produce to markets safely. Also, the government was recommended to communicate with market leaders about how to best handle a lockdown and reopening.

  • Privatisation and Workers’ Compensation in Privatised State-Owned
           Enterprises in Bangladesh

    • Authors: Mehadi Mamun, Mamun Billah
      Pages: 16 - 28
      Abstract: This paper examines the impact of privatisation on workers’ compensation in privatised state-owned enterprises in Bangladesh. The study employs five case studies using a qualitative approach. Studying multiple cases is considered more reliable as it permits replication and extension. The qualitative approach helps to build a holistic picture, which allows for the assembling of a comprehensive and complete report of the issues under investigation. The research finds that workers’ compensations in most privatised case study organisations are less than their counterparts in comparable state-owned and privately-owned organisations. The findings have important implications for the privatisation programmes in Bangladesh as the study focuses on workers who are the major workforce of privatised organisations and generates qualitative data that provides greater insight into the impact of privatisation on workers’ compensation in Bangladesh.

  • The Impact of “Product Planning and Design” and “Sales Ability” on
           Financial Performance by Taiwan-Listed Construction Companies: an
           Intervening Variable of Macro Environmental Factors

    • Authors: Kuo Wei Tsai, Huei Jeng Chou, Hsing Chau Tseng
      Pages: 29 - 47
      Abstract: With the rapid change of the macro environmental factors, the operation and organization of Taiwan's overall construction industry has also been greatly affected. In addition, looking back on the past the companies often encounter the phenomenon of Real Estate Bermuda Effect. Are the key factors for the successful operation of Taiwan's publicly-listed construction companies-good Sales Ability (SA) and Product Planning and Design (PD) can better respond to the above-mentioned adverse environmental changes' This study mainly aims to verify the impact of Taiwan's publicly-listed construction company's Sales ability (SA) and Product planning and design (PD) on Financial performance (FP) by using Macro environmental Factors (ME) as an interference variable. In this study, the population was sampled by Purposive Sampling and the directors or above as the research interview object. In addition, this study used the database of Taiwan Economic Journal (TEJ) to obtain the company's EPS information, and Linear Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) was used to verify the fitting effect of the Whole model, Structural model and Measurement model.The results show that Taiwan's publicly-listed construction company’s Sales Ability (SA) and Product Planning and Design (PD) , both of which have positive effects on Financial Performance (FP) respectfully, but not significant; however, adding the Intervening variable of Macro Environmental Factors (ME), both has a positive and significant interactive effect on Financial Performance (FP). This means that Macro environmental factors (ME) plays a very important positive impact role in promoting Financial Performance (FP), but Financial Performance (FP) is also affected by the aggregation of other factors such as both of Sales Ability (SA) and Product Planning and Design (PD) which were combined or to be considered at the same time.This finding can be used at least as a reference for the business decision makers of Taiwan publicly-listed construction companies as sustainable business management and development.

  • Just Transition and Place-Based Policy in Coal-Dependent Areas

    • Authors: Lefteris Topaloglou
      Pages: 63 - 77
      Abstract: Recently, the interrelated concepts of the place-based approach, spatial justice, and just transition appear not only in scientific dialogue but also in developing policies that seek to address spatial inequalities. This article attempts to discuss the European, national, and local just transition policies and to assess the extent to which these policies are in line with the place-based model, as reflected in the Barca report (2009). The study reference area at the regional level is Western Macedonia, for which the transition towards an alternative, sustainable, and just path stands a very challenging policy exercise. The empirical section involved questionnaires with local specialists and professionals who hold profound knowledge and experience of the area. The results of the analysis revealed that just transition policies designed only at a European level demonstrate a high-level degree of relationship with the place-based model. The exact opposite seems to prevail at the level of national and regional policies.
