  • Optimal Solutions for Performance Improvement -- A Case Study of IT Center
           at Jazan University

    • Authors: pp.1-15. Riyaz Abdullah Sheikh
      Abstract: Since the inception of Jazan University in the southern part of Saudi Arabia in 2006, Jazan University has been striving hard these years to facilitate the improvement of state-of-the-art services to its students. The IT Centre established in 2007 on campus is an important strategic decision in this direction. It is intended to offer various online services round the clock for both students and staff. Some of these services include e-learning, testing management, program scheduling, academic advising etc. As the university is expanding in its length and breadth, the demand for such services is also growing rapidly and the problems are in increase at the same time. There is an urgent need to identify the major management issues regarding to the service provided and find out solutions through analysis of potential root cause of these problems. This study is based on the application of Pareto Principle and Cause & Effect Diagram for trouble-shooting and suggest optimal solutions to reduce problems at the IT Centre. The research findings through this empirical approach will help to better formalize the operating strategy of the IT Centre and thus improve its service quality and the satisfaction level among the stakeholders.

  • The Role Of Country Of Origin In Mobile Phone Choice Of Generation Y And Z

    • Authors: pp.16-29. Szabolcs Nagy
      Abstract: Mobile phones play a very important role in our life. Mobile phone sales have been soaring over the last decade due to the growing acceptance of technological innovations, especially by Generations Y and Z. Understanding the changing customer requirements is the key to success in the smartphone business. New, strong mobile phone brands can emerge if the voice of the customer has been heard. However, studies that investigate the mobile phone choice of young adults aged 18-25, the members of late Generation Y and early Generation Z, have been lacking. It is also known that the country of origin has serious impact on attitudes and purchase decisions. In order to investigate the role of the country of origin in mobile phone choice of the Generations Y and Z, an online questionnaire survey with 228 respondents was conducted in Hungary in 2016. Besides descriptive statistical methods, crosstabs, ANOVA and Pearson correlation were used to find out significant relationships. Factor analysis (Principal Component Analysis) was used for data reduction to create factor components. The findings of this exploratory study supported the idea that the country of origin plays a significant role in many respects of young adults’ mobile phone choice. Owners of mobile phones with different countries of origin attribute significantly different importance to product features including technical parameters, price, design, brand name, operating system, and memory size. The country of origin has a moderating effect on the price sensitivity of customers with varied net income levels. It was also found that frequent buyers of mobile phones, especially US brand owners, spend the most, significantly higher amount of money, for a new mobile phone.
