  • Success Factors and Benefits of Six Sigma Implementation in Hospitals: A
           Systematic Review

    • Authors: Rashid M. Alhamali
      Pages: 1 - 10
      Abstract: This review explores critical success factors of Six Sigma implementation in hospitals and identifies the benefits. Data sources and Methodology: Prior studies on Six Sigma (SS) totaling 100 were selected from more than 100 journals. These studies came from numerous databases and are classified based on the year of publication. Journal names with corresponding number of papers selected are reported. The review reveals 25 critical success factors (CSF) necessary in the implementation of Six Sigma, encompassing numerous aspects of an organization such as managerial, statistical, and technical aspects. Twenty benefits derived from SS’s implementation are identified, including various improvements in terms of the organizations’ processes, financial performance, and quality of service. The success of Six Sigma implementation depends on several critical factors, some of which are best considered before its introduction, while others must be addressed during the process itself. Other factors are external and should be considered during and after its implementation. Not all Six Sigma initiatives are successful nor result in great benefits. Therefore, organizations must analyze their need for Six Sigma projects and base their decisions on the availability/presence of the CSF. Organizations, including hospitals, can gain numerous benefits from Six Sigma implementation but must first evaluate Six Sigma’s introduction and implementation against their abilities to achieve desired outcomes.

  • Assessment on Impact of Live Animal Export on Meat Export Performance in
           Ethiopia; Policy Implications

    • Authors: Gezahagn Dugassa Mamo
      Pages: 21 - 28
      Abstract: Ethiopia has one of the largest livestock populations in Africa. Due to lack of livestock market structure, performances, prices are poor and inadequate for designing policies and marketing system, the sector has remained stagnant. Despite fluctuation over years, the exports of meat (16,877 tonnes) and live animals (472,041 head) have significantly increased in 2010 -2012 Ethiopian Fiscal Year (EFY), recording 69 % increment from the previous years (kefyalew,2011). In 2018/19 EFY live animal contributes 33% of the earning, while 67 % was obtained from meat export (ERCA, 201819). However, lack of export routes and ports, illegal live animal trade, shortage of live animal and lack of appropriate breeding programs are some of the main challenges faced to the sector (kefaylew,2011). The presence of large livestock population with diverse and adaptable genotypes, and diverse agro-ecologies for production of different types of livestock; expansion of agro-industries and the increase of by product feedstuffs allowing for enhanced productivity; proximity of the middle east countries, high demand for meat and live animals including the domestic market are some of the opportunities that the sectors have. Therefore, the country would have been benefited more from the sector if the aforementioned challenges have been overcome. (Ameha,2011)

  • Research on the Multi-Period Optimal Fee of the Money Manager Under
           Cumulative Prospect Theory

    • Authors: Liurui Deng, Lan Yang, Bolin Ma
      Pages: 29 - 53
      Abstract: We are interested in investors’ interaction with portfolio managers and investigate the manager’s optimal strategy under cumulative prospect theory. We create model to characterize the relative anxiety about investing in risk assets and trust in the manager. Besides, we research how anxiety and trust affect the manager’s fee and the investors’ portfolios under cumulative prospect theory. Compared with previous work, our main novelty is that we focus on a dynamic portfolio selection. In other words, we formulate the optimal problem under multi-period setting. Besides, relying on the sub-game perfect investment strategies, we attain an optimal fee in multi-period. Another contribution is to discuss multiple risky assets. We use elliptic distribution to reduce a high-dimensional optimal problem to a one-dimensional optimal one. We obtain the CPT-investors’ portfolio for multiple risky assets under a dynamic framework. Based on this result, we study the manager’s optimal fee. It is valuable to say that we explore the optimal strategy for the manager under cumulative prospect theory but not the classical mean-variance preferences.

  • Exploring the Researcher’s Motivations for University Governance Some
           Configurations in the African Context

    • Authors: André TIOUMAGNENG
      Pages: 54 - 64
      Abstract: The University governance is constantly in crisis in many developing countries especially in Africa. This article is built around the idea that this question cannot be addressed without a prior reflection on the personal expectations that determine the researchers´ commitment in their work. Our objective is to contribute to better understanding the researchers’ motivations when they decide to publish articles, to write or supervise theses. The study considers the field of Management Sciences where the conceptual debate concerning the value of research rarely mentions what the researcher earn for himself. Data were collected through comprehensive interviews with 55 researchers of two Cameroonian Universities. The analysis puts forth five configurations of motivations that are likely to inspire the deepen reflections on local Universities governance reform.
