  • Relevance of Corporate Social Responsibility to Companies During Turbulent
           Economic Times: A Survey of Zimbabwe Stock Exchange Listed Companies

    • Authors: Vusumuzi Sibanda, Imelda Sekai Shoko, Ruramayi Tadu
      Pages: 1 - 12
      Abstract: Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) has remained topical and contentious as various schools of thought are put forward on its relationship to cost versus profitability for businesses. This study explored the relevance of CSR and its effect on the survival of businesses during an economic meltdown in Zimbabwe. The study purposively sampled 31 companies that are listed on the Zimbabwe Stock Exchange and have sound CSR programmes. A total of 93 questionnaires were administered and a Chi-square was conducted to test and establish the relationship between CSR strategies and business survival. The study concluded that companies with CSR strategies had a higher chance of surviving during turbulent times. Following the findings of the study, it is recommended that government comes up with CSR policies for different industries and that organisations continue investing in CSR especially in times of economic challenges.

  • Influencing Factors on Consumers’ Willingness to Share Energy Data
           on Online Energy Platforms

    • Authors: Claudia Maier, Christian Pfeiffer, Stefanie Hatzl, Eva Fleiß
      Pages: 13 - 22
      Abstract: Climate change requires an adaptation of the energy system towards an efficient use of renewable energies. For efficient control and optimization of the energy system, energy consumption and production data at household level play an essential role. Sharing platforms can enable the bundling and controlling of energy data from individual households. However, there is often a lack of acceptance among potential users to share their own data on such platforms. Therefore, this paper investigates the willingness of consumers to share their personal energy data. In particular, several factors that influence this willingness are examined. Decisive for the willingness are incentives for consumers in return for sharing their energy data. These can be offered in personal added value or collective added value. This paper shows that the factors perceived behavioral control, personal attitude and subjective norm have an influence on the willingness of private users to share energy data if a personal benefit or a collective benefit is provided. The age of users and their privacy concerns affect the willingness to share only in case personal value is added. These findings are valuable for the development and operation of online energy platforms.

  • The Effect of Using the Art of Harmony and Synergy with Strategic and
           Cognitive Dimensions in Improving the Methods of Storming
           Competitors' Strategies

      Abstract: When I start talking about clarifying and explaining what distinguishes between the cognitive, social and performance capabilities of the leader, I must analyze the characteristics of leadership and management related to their perceptions of work activities represented in solving technical problems that arise in the field of administrative work by creating a style of harmony and coping, and the effect of the characteristics of his nature and the reflection of their upbringing on How to create an appropriate climate to contain the emergency situations that hinder the functional and production processes and try to find out whether they have the capabilities that direct it towards (Benchmarking) organizations that develop unique solutions to those situations or not'This study came as an attempt to present explanations and clarifications of the aforementioned by introducing scientific additions to what researchers have gone by, who contributed to drawing a roadmap, but they did not fully seize the opportunity, but rather left it for the coming intellectual generations to put touches on it that approach their reality and their era, which increases questions, ambiguity and challenges. The study aims to develop a (Head, heart, Legs) model for the contemporary managerial psychologist (Finn Havaleshka), which is one of the most important and pioneering scientific contributions in the field of managerial psychology that focuses on explaining the characteristics of individuals at the level of managerial decision-making (administrative and leadership) from By focusing on the cognitive and social aspects, and their impact on performance), let this study be an evolution of this model and an update of what this pioneering scientist started by adding a fourth stage to the model represented by the dimension of (Arms) or arms that defend the successes achieved through their maintenance and preservation. On the one hand, the situation is transferred to the offensive stage by expanding the area of success by using offensive strategies that invade the labor market, as it is said that the best defense is attack. The study was divided into three axes:The first axis focused on presenting the methodological aspect of the research, while the second focused on the available theorizing and the third covered the conclusions.

  • Informal Entrepreneurial Network Education as a Catalyst for Women’s
           Enterprises Sustainability: Evidence From Nigeria

    • Authors: Adeola Adesola ESSIEN
      Pages: 31 - 46
      Abstract: Extant studies in the literature have found that informal entrepreneurship education has concentrated largely on technical skills and has continually ignored the current needs of informal entrepreneurs at the stage of entry and development performance of most informal enterprises. In spite of Africa informal sector that accounted for 85.5% informal enterprises in size than other continents, yet, it is worrisome that the sub-Saharan Africa contribution of informal sector to gross domestic product (GDP) between 2000 and 2010 has dropped from 63.6% to 55%, resulting to rising poverty rate, alarming youth unemployment rate, higher enterprises closure rate, and indeed, declining unstable enterprises. As such, this study empirically examines the impact of informal entrepreneurial network education on women’s enterprises sustainability in Nigeria, using NECA Women entrepreneurs association. To achieve this specific objective, the study decomposed informal entrepreneurial network into three networks, the NECA Women entrepreneurs association, the Government agencies association, and the social media platform and the average value represent the informal entrepreneurial network education to regress on the dependent variable, the women enterprises sustainability. A total of 100 questionnaires were distributed and administered via the google survey from the six-geopolitical regions in Nigeria. The study employed statistical packages for social sciences (SPSS) to estimate the research questions and the impact of informal entrepreneurial network education on women enterprises sustainability, using descriptive statistics and OLS regression respectively. The descriptive results found that of the three informal entrepreneurial networks, NECA women association exhibited a strong interactive (3.28 of 5.00 Likert scale) entrepreneurial network education than use of government agencies and social media platform that exhibited weak interactive (1.8 and 1.94 of 5.00 Likert scale) enterperneurial network education among informal entrepreneurs in Nigeria. In addition, OLS regression result found that all three informal entrepreneurial networks education has a 38.9% impact on women’s enterprises sustainability within the study periods of October and December, 2020 in Nigeria at 1% level of significance. Based on the results, the study concluded that NECA women entrepreneurial interactive network outperformed both government agencies and social media interactive networks and thus, the study recommends that the NECA women entrepreneurs should consolidate more than the economic perspective by extending to the remaining triple bottom line factors such as environmental and social factors as to meet both current needs and future generation needs of the enterprises stakeholders in this study.

  • Service Sector as an Engine of Growth: Empirical Analysis of Rwanda

    • Authors: Jean Bosco Harelimana, Beline Mukarwego
      Pages: 47 - 59
      Abstract: This research was econometrically analyzing Service sector as an engine of growth: empirical analysis of Rwanda from 1995 to 2020. The data were collected from BNR and were analyzed using Eviews7. The study used different opinions of economists concerning the Philips curve, by constructing short-term and long-term Philips curves in Rwanda by making some conclusions about the results at the end. We pay special attention in our research to the study of Phillips curve made by some economists of the last period the findings of this study indicate the following results: *, ** and *** indicates rejection of the null hypothesis of unit root at 10, 5% and 1% significant level, respectively. The SERV, FDI, LR, GR series are not stationary at level, and then we should test the Stationarity at the first difference. (*), (**) & (***) represent respectively 10%, 5% and 1% level of significance.The results give an indication for the existence of long-run relationship between SERV and growth. The max and trace values statistic strongly reject the null hypothesis for “none “cointegration vector in favor of at least one cointegrating vectors at the 1 percent significance level. The cointegrating vector representing the long run relationship between service and growth. The above is endogenous because its probability of chi-square 0.000025 is less than 5% level of significance and it answers the second hypothesis of a Variable that can help national bank of Rwanda to control money supply in the short-run.The P- value of chi-square which is 0.0791 and this is greater than 0, 05 level of significant therefore, there is no short run causality between variables running from SERV, FDI, LR and GR at 5% level of significant. The results revealed out from the above table; LSERV, LFDI, LLR and LGR does Granger Cause LSERV at 10% level of significant due to their probability of 0.0284 which is less than 0.10 level of significance but LSERV does not Granger Cause LSERV, LFDI, LLR and LGR at 10% level of significant due to their probability of 0.1224 which is greater than 0.10 level of significance.
