  • The The relationship between strategic management practices and the growth
           of Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) in Ghana

    • Authors: Alex Addae-Korankye; Bernard Agyei Aryee
      Abstract: The main goal of the study was to examine or investigate the impact of strategic management practices on the growth of SMEs in Ghana.  Purposive sampling technique was employed to sample 190 SMEs in Accra, though 150 SMEs responded to the questionnaire. With the help of SPSS version 22, Multiple regression analysis was conducted to assess the impact of strategic management practices on the performance and hence growth of SMEs in Ghana. The study revealed a significant positive relationship between strategy formulation and growth of SMEs in Ghana. The study also found a significant positive relationship between strategy implementation and the growth of SMEs in Ghana, but found a negative relationship between strategy evaluation and growth of SMEs in Ghana. However, overall, the study found a positive relationship between effective and efficient application of strategic management practices and the growth of SMEs in Ghana. As a contribution to policy and practice, the study recommended among others that policy makers, managers and owners of Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) should employ strategic management experts especially in the field of strategy evaluation to enhance the quality of their strategy evaluation process so as to positively influence the performance and growth of SMEs.

  • The development of corporate security in the context of countering threats
           to doing business

    • Authors: Taras Shyra; Kostiantyn Salyga, Vasyl Derii, Igor Prykhodko, Svitlana Shymkiv
      Abstract: The principal purpose of the study is to determine the main parameters of corporate security development in the enterprise in the context of determining the level of impact of external and internal threats. The study uses survey methods on the main internal and external threats that may affect the corporate security of enterprises. The purpose of the practical part of our study is to determine the level of these threats to corporate security. The methodological basis of our study is the method of expert evaluation, which was conducted by interviewing people involved in the process of corporate security management of enterprises, as well as methods of the hierarchical organization using matrices of pair-wise comparisons. The major results of the study can be considered determining the hierarchy of influence of each of the threats affecting the corporate security of industrial enterprises, which will allow optimizing the security system and directing its activities to more pressing issues. Our method of the hierarchical organization of threats to corporate security does not take into account the specifics of the corporate security system of industrial enterprises in most European countries and now can be freely implemented mainly in industrial enterprises of Eastern Europe. The proposed method of assessing external and internal threats is currently optimized for the activities of industrial enterprises in Eastern Europe, including Ukraine and Poland. In the following, at an expansion of the given research, there is a possibility of introducting this methodology to the enterprises of other countries or other profiles. The relevance of this study lies in determining the level of threats that affect the corporate security of industrial enterprises. The methodology for assessing the level of influence of these threats is universal, therefore it can be used in the event of a change in the main threats, it is extremely relevant in the context of rapid globalization changes in the world.

  • Practical aspects of the use of antisipative management in the process of
           ensuring the economic security of an enterprise

    • Authors: Andriy Shtangret; Elzara Topalova, Oleg Polovcev, Olena Chornenka, Andriy Musiyovskyi
      Abstract: Operating in an unstable market economy environment, enterprises can achieve success in business, provided that a system of economic security is created, focused on predicting possible changes in the internal and external environment using measures. As the speed of changes in the external environment increases, it becomes more and more difficult to predict with a sufficient degree of accuracy the nature of changes, which would allow security actors to respond to them in a timely manner and with the most rational use of available resources. Early identification of a possible change in the level of economic security of an enterprise increases the reaction time to it. However, with the increase in the frequency of possible sudden changes, the degree of their predictability decreases. This means that until the moment of obtaining information sufficient for thoughtful measures, there is a shortage of time for their implementation, which can lead to the realisation of a certain threat in the form of losses or lead to the loss of a profitable economic opportunity. The main purpose of the article is to consider the essence of weak signals, to characterise the process of identifying weak signals, to formulate methodological foundations for the use of antisipative management, to determine the differences between antisipative management and adaptive and anti-crisis management in relation to the process of ensuring the economic security of an enterprise.

  • The influence of board characteristics and state holding on corporate
           social responsibility disclosure, evidence from Vietnamese listed firms

    • Authors: Thi Lien Huong Nguyen; Nhat Minh Tran, Manh Chien Vu
      Abstract: Analysing the nexus between board diversity, CEO power, state holding, and corporate social responsibility disclosure in an emerging country: Vietnam, where some listed firms are held significantly by the State, is the fundamental objective of this study. In order to achieve this goal, we employed regression analysis using panel data. While board diversity consists of board gender diversification and board independence and CEO (executive) power, consisting of executive duality, executive holding (ownership), and deputy CEO, and state ownership are explanatory variables, and CSR disclosure is a dependent variable. The sample contains of 166 Vietnamese listed firms at the Hanoi Stock Exchange (HNX) for 2014−2016. After performing regression analysis, the result revealed that the proportion of female directors, deputy CEO, and state holding had a significant correlation with CSR publication. In contrast, the proportion of independent directors, CEO duality, and CEO ownership was found to be insignificant. Our research adds to the research on firm governance and CSR in several approaches. First, the paper adds to the study on the advancement of research toward corporate social responsibility and firm governance and CEO features impress on it. Second, our research expands CSR literature in developing countries, which has not been treated in detail. Fourth, this research advances and adds literature to some theories, including agency theory and resource-based view theory.

  • Fuzzy approach for group decision-making in crisis situations

    • Authors: Michal Škoda; Martin Flegl, Carmen Lozano
      Abstract: The importance of correct and clear decisions during a complex and difficult situation is very easy to understand, but not so easy to achieve. Especially in situations where decision-makers must decide under time pressure and uncertainty. For instance, typical crisis situations have such characteristics. Given the uncertainty, subjectivity and ambiguity of human knowledge, crisis situations are also characterized by conflicting interests. In this article, we propose an approach based on fuzzy set theory to help decision-makers to find the collective decision considering weights of each member of the decision-making group. More specifically, the proposed approach uses new and innovative transformation of fuzzy numbers through α-level cuts. The key role in the transformation process is played by the shape and position of fuzzy numbers. Additionally, the Hamming distance will be used for the final interpretation of the results, in order to minimize the loss of information caused by defuzzification.

  • Surviving COVID-19 and beyond: a conceptual framework for SMEs in crisis

    • Authors: Eyup Kahveci
      Abstract: This study sets out to review in detail the available information on SMEs crisis management. Despite SMEs’ crucial role in the economy, relatively little research has been carried out on the effects of the economic crisis on SMEs and how they can cope with a crisis. This work will generate fresh insight into the crisis management for SMEs and provide a clear and easily understandable framework to survive COVID-19 and beyond. Ensuring sound cash flow during the crisis is the center of our framework. It is also crucial to have timely, accurate information and confident, courageous management. It will enable accurate analysis of the situation to restore or establish a new level of homeostasis from the perspective of bounded rationality. There is no generic treatment for overcoming a crisis. Tailor–made strategies and implementations empower companies to approach crisis resolution in the context of equifinality. There is only one goal: to survive the crisis. Yet, every company will have its own unique way to reach this goal.

  • Young generation and environmental friendly awareness: does it the impact
           of green advertising'

    • Authors: Lalu Edy Herman; Ida Bagus Nyoman Udayana, Naili Farida
      Abstract: The environmental issues nowadays have make consumers becoming more selective in selecting products and brands going to use. The purpose of this study is to investigate the effect of green advertising on green purchase intentions mediated by green attitude awareness in the young generation. Young generation has strong curiosity and has easier access on getting products information, so this research focuses deeper on examining how much green advertising, green knowledge, and eco-label information affect the awareness on green attitude which later influences green intention to purchase. This research used primary data obtained from questionnaires distributed directly to 150 undergraduate students of universities in Indonesia. We used Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) for verifying hypothesis and AMOS 20 software for getting empirical results of 16 items questions representing indicator of 4 variables. The result showed that green advertising and green knowledge were able to form the awareness on environmental friendly. Although eco-label information did not influence the awareness on green attitude, it influenced the green purchase intention directly.

  • Brand crisis response strategies: a typologies continuum

    • Authors: Bich Ngoc Do; Tuan Phong Nham
      Abstract: This purpose of this study is to provide a spectrum to illustrate all applicable response strategies towards brand crisis management. A qualitative systematic method is adopted to review 128 relevant papers and synthesized in a brand crisis response typologies continuum. The findings were illustrated in the continuum which includes two main categories – primary response group with seven levels ranked lowest to highest by organizational involvement and responsibility, and secondary response group such as bolstering). This research result might enrich the current literature of brand crisis management which is fragmented and provide a clear guideline so that scholars and practitioners might track all pertinent solutions depending on low to high level of brands’ effort towards handling problems. Recognizing the discrepancy among response strategies, marketers and branders can choose either singular or merged solutions shown in the map to form a timely response to brand crisis, which is the main factor to crisis response success.

  • Concomitant of inside-shareholding, group affiliation and firm value:
           evidence from Pakistan

    • Authors: Waseemullah; Safdar Husain Tahir, Muhammad Shafiq Kaleem, Tahirah Kanwal, Muhammad Umer Quddoos
      Abstract: The present study inspects the comparative effects of inside shareholding on firm value for group-affiliated firms and non-group-affiliated firms in Pakistan. The research uses the excess-value as a performance measure by employing a chop-shop approach in treatment effects regression model (TERM). The results reveal that lower level and higher level inside shareholding negatively associated with firms’ value. However, it positively relates at a moderate level. Also, inside shareholding-value relationship differs significantly for group-affiliated firms and non-group-affiliated firms. Firms with inside shareholding at lower level appear to more visible in business groups, and these firms show adverse firms’ value consistent with divergence of interest effect. Nevertheless, inside ownership firms at a higher level, namely standalone firms, negatively affect firm value with entrenchment effect. The findings also confirm non-linearity in inside shareholding-firm value relationships.

  • Islamic capital market integration and asymmetric information: a study in
           the five ASEAN countries from the post-global financial crisis

    • Authors: Ibnu Qizam
      Abstract: This study aims at examining the integration impact of the five ASEAN Islamic capital markets on asymmetric information for ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) development. Utilizing samples of market and financial panel data from 2009 to 2015 among the five ASEAN Islamic capital markets, and applying two-country portfolios of the Islamic capital markets among the five ASEAN countries to measure the different levels of Islamic capital market integration, this study suggests that the different levels of the Islamic capital market integration between Indonesia and Malaysia are found to result in asymmetric information negatively. The strongest Islamic capital market integration between Indonesia and Malaysia affect reduced asymmetric information more consistently than the other two-country portfolios, while the weakest level of integration between the Philippines and any other four Islamic capital markets that affects asymmetric information inconsistently is also supported. These results confirm an interplay between a modern portfolio theory, Efficient Market Hypothesis (EMH), contract theory, and general economic theory, and also provide new insights for stakeholders in investment decisions and strategies, cross-border regulation of economic resources, and other plentiful benefits.

  • The role of company reputation in mitigating negative word of mouth

    • Authors: Shinta Rahmani; Rizal E. Halim, Gita Gayatri, Asnan Furinto
      Abstract: The study aims to investigate whether a company reputation can be used to reduce the impact of negative electronic word of mouth (eWOM). We conducted experimental research in two studies along with 225 college students, who at least have two accounts in different social media, as participants. We use both qualitative and quantitative methodologies. Qualitative research was carried out with focus group interviews to decide the number of high or low negative reviews as well as the level of credibility. Quantitative research used cross-sectional field design by pilot study and the main study. The model was tested and developed using data collected by questionnaires in paper surveys. The results of study 1 suggest that negative eWOM reduces purchase intentions mediated by the subjective norms and perceived behavior control. High negative eWOM reduces purchase intention more than low ones. Study 2 found out that in a condition of high negative eWOM, good company reputation’s perception affected purchase intention mediated by attitude. Furthermore, purchase intention is higher when a good company reputation’s perception is stronger. Therefor Organizations should convey its company reputation to their customer visually to get a good perception. Further research to investigate another variable that the company has is required.

  • The impact of Asean-China Free Trade Area (ACFTA) agreement on
           Indonesia’s major plantation export commodities

    • Authors: Erlambang Budi Darmanto; Rossanto Dwi Handoyo, Wisnu Wibowo
      Abstract: This study aims to analyze the impact of ASEAN-China Free Trade Area (ACFTA) on the 4 major exports of plantation commodities (including the commodities of coffee, cocoa, rubber, and palm oil) in Indonesia. The trade impact is measured based on the occurrence of trade creation or trade diversion. The negative coefficient as the result of dummy FTA (Free Trade Area) measurement indicates the presence of trade diversion. Meanwhile, the positive coefficient indicates the presence of trade creation. This study examines the export of major plantation commodities of Indonesia to China and compared with the 10 major export destination countries worldwide. The findings show that trade creation exists within the commodities of coffee, rubber, and palm oil while the trade diversion exists in the commodity of cocoa.

      Abstract: The complex of agroindustrial enterpriseis an extremely important branch of the national economy of any state. This area determines the level of food security, and can also be one of the powerful incentives for the growth of the entire economic system of the country. This is why it so important to ensure economic security of agroindustrial enterprise. The purpose of the article is to form the model for assessing the level of economic security of the agroindustrial enterprise. The subject of the study is economic security of the agroindustrial enterprise. It is proved that the effectiveness of anti-crisis measures substantially depends on information support, the formation of which at the proper level is possible when applying the developed model for assessing the level of economic security of the agroindustrial enterprise. The use in the model of quantitative and qualitative indicators can characterize the main parameters of the economic activity of the agroindustrial enterprise and allow to characterize the level of economic security. This model is based on data that were obtained during the assessment by experts who work in agroindustrial enterprises, which may not only be about professionalism, but also take into account the specifics of the studied area. As a result of obtaining one or another value of the integral indicator, the studied agro-industrial enterprise is recognized as requiring no revision of its own strategy for ensuring economic security. The generated model was experimentally applied at ten enterprises in Eastern Europe, in particular in countries such as Poland, the Czech Republic and Ukraine, to test its effectiveness. To define and substantiate our research, we applied the following general research methods: induction and deduction, comparison and systematization, synthesis and analysis, morphological analysis. The following methods are specific for our research: SAW methodology, in our work is designed to form a polyvariate decision-making model for assessing the level of economic security, as well as a method of expert evaluation, which are designed to form a list of necessary for the formation of the above model. The novelty of our research lies in the developed integrated indicator for assessing the level of economic security of agribusiness and its practical application.

  • Impulse buying behaviour at the retail checkout: an investigation of
           select antecedents

    • Authors: Vinish Pallikkara; Prakash Pinto, Iqbal Thonse Hawaldar, Slima Pinto
      Abstract: The remarkable growth of the Indian retail landscape over the last decade is reflected in the proliferation of supermarkets, departmental stores and hypermarkets in India. Evolving consumption patterns, raising living standards has sparked a huge demand in the food and grocery retailing. Impulse buying is a time-tested tactic by which retailers grab customer’s attention and boost average purchase value. Prior research has deliberated extensively on impulse buying in the store and its determinants. However, little effort has been made to examine the impulse buying behaviour, particularly at the retail checkout. To bridge this gap, we conducted an empirical study in the leading food and grocery modern retail stores in selected Tier I and Tier II cities in the state of Karnataka, India. The data was collected from 385 respondents using a structured questionnaire. The responses were analysed using confirmatory factor analysis and multiple regression. Our study shows that impulse buying at the store checkout area is minimal and sporadic for most of the product categories at the checkout. Impulse buying at the checkout is instigated by factors such as store environment, credit card availability, momentary mood, in-store promotion, offers and discounts and large merchandise. The study has important implications for retail stores by emphasising on the choice of merchandise offered for sale at the checkout area. Further, the investigation reveals that Indian shoppers are health-conscious and cautious about their purchase at the checkout rather than being impulsive.

  • Team effectiveness in software development: the role of personality and
           work factors

    • Authors: Auksė Endriulaitienė; Lina Cirtautienė
      Abstract: Globalization and dynamic economic conditions have exponentially increased the use of virtual work in organizations. Effectiveness in software development teams, therefore, is now a relevant issue in business, psychology or other fields. Despite the uniqueness of software development teams and their work conditions, their effectiveness has not been sufficiently researched to clearly determine how it relates to personality traits, work challenges and the virtualization level. To expand the understanding of the mechanisms that influence team effectiveness in software development, an ecological framework is selected. The purpose of this study is to explore the relationship between personality traits, work factors and team effectiveness within the context of software development teams. Methodology: The exploratory study was conducted in international software development companies operating in Lithuania. Forty-five software development teams (N = 142) filled in the Team task performance scale, Hexaco-PI-R questionnaire and rated perceived work challenges and team virtualization level. The statistical analysis was conducted with SPSS. This survey is an initial stage of a larger project. Findings: Personality traits Conscientiousness and Extraversion relate to team effectiveness. In software development teams the most prevalent work challenges were time zone differences, lack of information when working on a project, and lack of a clear purpose. Lack of information and poor foreign language skills negatively affect team effectiveness. A higher virtualization level is associated with more frequent work challenges (culture and foreign language challenges, time zone differences) and team performance.

    • Authors: Aref Abdulkarem Ali Alhashedi; Barjoyai Bardai, Maged M. Mahyoub Al-Dubai, Mohammed Abdulrazzaq Alaghbari
      Abstract: This paper mainly aims at investigating the mediating effect of organizational citizenship behaviour in the relationship between transformational leadership behaviour and organizational performance as well as the mediating effect of organizational citizenship behaviour in the relationship between psychological ownership, working environment, employee involvement, incentives, and employee motivation, and organizational performance. To achieve the objectives of the study, quantitative research approach was applied through a questionnaire specifically designed to collect primary information from the samples of the study, which consisted of (250) managers in gold shops in Jaddah. The collected data was analysed using SPSS 20.0 and Smart-PLS 3. The results showed that organization citizenship behaviour mediates the relationship between transformational leadership behaviour, psychological ownership and incentives, and organizational performance in the Saudi Arabian gold industry. Also, organization citizenship behaviour has no mediating effect on the relationship between working environment, employee involvement, employee motivation, and organizational performance in the Saudi Arabian gold industry. At the end of this study, the researcher recommended the need to encouraging the practice of organizational citizenship behaviours by developing a set of special regulations and instructions, and consider organizational citizenship behaviours as one of the important criteria in the annual performance appraisal models for employees, in addition to that, the quantitative method was adopted in this research to test research hypotheses, thus, future studies can rely on other methods qualitative or case study to verify the results of this research.

  • Convergence of Human Development Index: case study of foreign direct
           investment in ASEAN

    • Authors: M. Elfan Kaukab; Surwandono Surwandono
      Abstract: This article examines the role of bilateral FDI and income convergence in affecting HDI increase in countries with middle HDI in ASEAN. The ASEAN Economic Community has been developing and it is expected that the gaps between nations can be covered. This article explores how economic intervention through HDI and income convergence can boost HDI improvement. The writers examine the presence of a statistically significant causal relationship between source country’s GDP, home country’s GDP, source country’s FDI towards the home country, source country total FDI, home country total FDI, and the percentage of source country FDI towards source country total FDI with both countries HDI convergence. Measurement is carried out using the generalized method of moments. Based on yearly samples of high HDI countries (Malaysia, Thailand, Singapore) couple with medium HDI countries (Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia, Myanmar, Indonesia, and Philippine) during 2013–2017 period, the writers find statistically significant impact of home country GDP, source country FDI towards all countries, and FDI percentage of the home country compared to all countries.

  • Model for opportunities assessment to increase the enterprise innovation
           activity

    • Authors: Larysa Frolova; Kostiantyn Zhadko, Olha Ilyash, Svitlana Yermak, Tetiana Nosova
      Abstract: This study shows that the model of assessing the opportunities for innovation activity of enterprises is multivariate and interrelated with such macroeconomic regulators of Ukraine’s development as competitive attractiveness of the country, favorable conditions for doing business in the country and innovation activity of enterprises. The use of a three-dimensional matrix of indicators to assess Ukraine’s competitive attractiveness allowed us to evaluate the significant impact of changes in Ukraine’s Global Innovation Index on the innovation activity of enterprises for the period 2014–2019. Moreover, the greater the value of the indicator of the state’s innovation potential is, the higher the level of innovation activity in the country becomes, which significantly increases the positive image of Ukrainian entrepreneurs at the global level and acts as a “green light” for foreign investors. Given the wide range of parameters that must be taken into account in an integrated assessment of innovation activity of an enterprise, we have used the method of component analysis. The uniqueness of an integrated assessment of innovation activity of an enterprise is carried out in accordance with the concept of value formation of innovations and it is tested on the example of Ferrotrading LLC. The effectiveness of the study consists in the fact that the selected sub-indicators for assessing the innovation activity of the studied enterprise (innovation resources, innovation competencies and innovation abilities) greatly complement the assessment of the opportunities for innovation activity in the proposed model. The conducted study has theoretical and practical significance. It can be used as a basis for further research in this area and can be employed by governments to make management decisions on increasing the innovation activity of business and the state as a whole.
