  • Book to market ratio and expected stock return: An empirical study on the
           Colombo stock market

    • Abstract: The book to market capitalization of firms become one of the common risk factor on asset pricing models. The impact of book to market equity of firms on stock returns was initially found in US market and subsequently tested in many international markets both in developed and developing markets. However, the empirical test of value effect in Sri Lankan stock market seems hard to find in literature. Therefore, this study examines existence of value effect on stocks returns in the Colombo stock market as an emerging capital market. The analysis show a weak positive cross sectional relationship between stock return and Book to Market ratio of stock and existence of value effect. Published on 2018-04-30 00:00:00
  • What sow the seeds of hardship for the poorest of the poor' Towards
           increasing the performance of informal sector in war affected regions of
           Sri Lanka

    • Abstract: Less performance of informal sector among the poorest of the poor in the war affected regions in Sri Lanka has been caused by many reasons. Findings of an exploratory study and the factor analysis revealed four important factors namely training and skills, education, social and economic. As the extension of the exploratory study, to test this prediction empirically with a larger sample size, the present study applied a survey method using a questionnaire especially designed based on the initial exploratory study which was conducted inductively. A sample of 300 women headed households engaged in the informal sector participated in this study. The results indicates these four factors significantly predict the performance of informal sector. More specifically, while, economic factors contribute more to the performance of the informal sector, training contributes less. The study also discussed the implication of findings and area for future research. Based on the findings and conclusions, few recommendations are also made to enhance the performance of women headed households in the informal sector. Published on 2015-10-30 00:00:00
  • Self-development model for improve leadership skills of executives
           managers: Comparison study in two different countries - Sri Lanka and

    • Abstract: In order to understand the importance of human resources management and to see how it is influenced by cultures and nations, this study is to compare in two really different countries such as Sri Lanka and China. The transition towards a socialist marketoriented economy has presented many challenges to both China and Sri Lanka. One of the key human resource challenges has been to develop business leadership skills in a flexible, timely and cost-effective manner. This paper focuses on the self-initiated approach to professional development that has been introduced by managers at a grassroot level to improve business leadership (referred to as self-development). Given the limited research on self-development in China and Sri Lanka, the intention of this paper is to enrich understanding of why managers in a complex and dynamic transitional environment undertake self-development activities. The findings of this study suggest that there is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ paradigm to understand self-development across contexts. First, the western model of leadership competencies at the different management levels do not necessarily fit the needs that managers are targeting in their self-development activities in China and Sri Lanka. Second, despite some similarities between China and Sri Lanka, the Chinese managers were more interested in technical leadership skills than the Sri Lankan managers whose self-development foci were centered on improving their moral standards. Such differences highlight each country’s stage of economic and social development while reinforcing the influence of contextual factors. It also suggests that self-development is best understood as a process within a specific context. Published on 2015-10-30 00:00:00
  • Owners’ Demographics and Ownership Information in Explaining Credit
           Repayment Behavior of Micro Small and Medium Sized Enterprises

    • Abstract: Small Medium Enterprises (SMEs) in developing countries are subject to higher degree of information opacity causing substantive constrains on lenders in their pursuit of predicting credit risk associated with SME lending. Driven by this context, the lending for SMEs is often characterized as relationship lending and credit risk predictions therefore necessarily resort to qualitative information which is often deemed to be the cost effective, viable and technically sound alternative. Therefore, this research sought to investigate the influence of owners’ demographic and ownership information of Micro and Small Medium sized Enterprises (MSMEs)in explaining their credit default risk using primary data collected from randomly selected 62 MSME borrowers from Trincomalee District of Sri Lanka. Owners’ demographics studied by gender, civil status, size of family, age and age group, ethnicity, education and mobility (the distance between lender and enterprise) of the owners’ of MSMEs under study. Ownership information was proxied by the information whether the business is of sole proprietorship or partnership or of any other type. This study contributes to the literature a novel concept of Loan Repayment Risk Matrix (LRRM) as a comprehensive framework to approach credit repayment risk/credit default risk. Chi-Square Test has been employed to examine the relationship between dependent and independent variables and where the independent variables take continuous values (in the case of mobility), the difference of mean is tested with one-way analysis of variance (ANOVA) with post hoc comparison using Turkey’s honestly significant difference (HSD) test. It has been found that owners’gender, age, education, language and mobility and ownership information are significantly correlating with loan default risk of MSMEs and statistically significant relationship could not be found with respect to civil status, ethnicity and family size.

  • A Study of Students’ Perspectives on the Adoption of LMS at
           University of Kelaniya

    • Abstract: In the knowledge era, the adoption of Learning Management System (LMS) has become a requirement at Universities as it is enhancing the teaching and learning environment. Although the success of LMS adoption in Universities can be initiated by lecturer acceptance and use, it survives in the long run because of students’ continuous acceptance and use. The objective of this study is to study students’ perspectives on the adoption of LMS in blended learning environment. A survey is conducted among 50 undergraduate students who use LMS extensively at the Department of Industrial Management, University of Kelaniya in order to fulfill the objective. The conduct of this study involves quantitative approach. The result of the study indicates students’ perspectives in terms of students’ attitude towards LMS, self efficiency, experience and interaction with lecturers and other classmates play a significant role in determining students’ LMS adoption.

  • International Tea Marketing and Need for Reviving Sri Lankan Tea Industry

    • Abstract: The objective of this paper is to analyze present trend of Sri Lankan tea industry and to identify problems in international marketing of tea. Qualitative methodology was adopted in this study. Checklist was prepared and researchers interviewed twenty six experts from tea exporting and marketing companies in Sri Lanka. Any strategy that will enhance the competitiveness in terms of sustaining competitive advantage globally is held up by high cost of production. Therefore, it is recommended that Sri Lanka needs to follow one of the best international entry modes to market tea internationally by having international organizations in tea marketing and exporting companies. This will help the industry improve the profitability and thus, protect people working in the plantation and Sri Lanka will get economic benefits. It is favorable for Sri Lanka having properly designed product, promotion, pricing and distribution strategies in accordance with the needs of international tea market are imperative for Sri Lankan tea industry to face the marketing challenges prevailing in the international tea market, which will assist Sri Lankan tea industry in competing intensively with other tea exporting or re exporting countries. Sri Lankan government may also extend massive support to the industry to convert export companies into international marketing oriented firms.

  • Relative Risk for TB in the Unprotected Small Industrial Environment: a
           case study

    • Abstract: Tuberculosis is still continuing to be a major public health problem in Sri Lanka. About 8000 new cases of TB are notified every year. The incidences of Tuberculosis differ much within the country based on the environmental pollution and other factors such as occupation, nutrition and education levels and therefore the risk for tuberculosis also differs much within the divisional secretariat divisions. For this study the Sammanthurai divisional secretariat division which is having the small industries such as metal quarries and traditional brick manufacturing was selected to study the relative risk for tuberculosis. The relative risk for tuberculosis was estimated using linear logistic models. This studied area had 2.89 folder higher relative risk for tuberculosis compare to the national incidence. Within this studied division an area called J block was identified as more susceptible area for tuberculosis. Presence of higher number of metal quarries, traditional brick manufacturing industries, low level of education and low income might be the causes for this increased relative risks. An urgent measure to control dusts from these industries and providing safe work environment for the people working in these industries are vital.

  • An Investigation on the Transaction Motivation and the Speculative
           Motivation of the Demand for Money in Sri Lanka

    • Abstract: The main objective of this study is to empirically investigate the transaction (income elasticity) and speculative motivations (interest rate elasticity) of the demand for money in the Sri Lankan context and to examine its stability. The study employed the use of co-integration test over the 1977 to 2009, to estimate long run relationship between money demand and its determinants: real income and interest rate. The study found out that money demand function is stable in Sri Lanka for the sample period. The income is the most significant factor of the demand for money, and it makes a powerful positive impact on real money demand. Interest rate is positively related with real money demand and significant, but not consistent with existing theories. Demand for Money on transaction motivation is larger than its speculative motivation in the Sri Lankan context.

  • The Impact of Telecommunication Growth on the Service Sector: a co
           integration analysis

    • Abstract: Using annual time series data of Sri Lanka this study examines the impact of telecommunication sector growth on the service sector growth. The methodology employed consists of the bivariate and multivariate co integration approach to establish the long run equilibrium relationship and causality testing is employed to detect the direction of this relationship. The current study is the first of its kind to use annual secondary data to examine the long run relationship between telecommunications sector and service sector in Sri Lanka. I find statistical evidence for a positive long run equilibrium relationship between telecommunication sector growth and service sector growth which confirmed the research hypothesis. Finally, the possibility of one-way link between telecommunications sector growth and service sector growth was established through causality test. Based on these finding the current study emphasizes the need to target long term growth strategies in the telecommunication service sector for Sri Lanka.
