      Abstract: Various behavioural theories agree that intention precedes any planned behaviour. One who has a strong entrepreneurial intent becomes an entrepreneur. Ajzen's theory of planned behaviour is one of the psychological theories that predict human behaviour and has been widely used to predict the entrepreneurial intention. Higher education is expected to instil entrepreneurial skillsets among the students. Growing economies witness an increased number of women entrepreneurs. Governments encourage by incentivising the women-owned start-ups. Women entrepreneurs' contribution to the economy is inevitable for a country that has a sex ratio of 933. The paper is aimed at studying the entrepreneurial intent and competencies among the female postgraduates. Research model is developed by extending the theory of planned behaviour with entrepreneurial competency as an additional predictor variable. Results revealed that possessing entrepreneurial competencies has a positive and significant effect on the entrepreneurial intention and can be an enabler for entrepreneurial intention.

      Abstract: Business strategies to succeed retail markets are often focused on the consumer's behavioural pattern and product involvement. There is limited research focusing on fashion clothing involvement and its related management strategies adopted by retailers including market segmentation. The study describes the management strategies presently adopted by the retailers of clothes including market segmentation to keep their customers satisfied. Structured schedules were used for collecting data from 100 retailers, selected by a stratified random sampling method in Singapore. The results showed that focusing on demographics of buyers seemed to be a preferable strategy in retail trade of clothes. Practical implications include that intensively competitive world market for clothes, growth of fashion consciousness has eradicated the impediments to fashion for the masses by making affordability and availability of varieties of products. Therefore, market segmentation based on identified factors would largely benefit retailers of clothes.

      Abstract: The Covid-19 pandemic appears to have led us towards a new change in education systems around the world. Digital learning is the modus operandi of professionals looking to improve their skills in an increasingly automated world. Online learning has found a place in the curriculum of schools and universities to ensure academic continuity. Access to online learning is highly dependent on the subject and the tools the students are familiar with. This research report looks at different aspects of the challenges in the form of an online learning questionnaire. The study shows that most of the younger generations are very familiar with the use of online platforms, but use them as part of their daily academic activities, but are faced with many attitude problems that drive them to behave differently, which can be further elaborated in the findings of this study.

      Abstract: Holding leadership positions are not an exception to women off late. Women have started getting hold of the top-most positions across industries and across countries. However, it is not an easy journey that they go through which therefore influences their stay in the positions peacefully. The discussed leadership challenges in this study are organisational politics and turnover intention. Women find it tricky to handle these two issues and are found continuing to either live with these challenges or they leave the organisation and the leadership position for betterment in life. The researcher has chosen 120 respondents holding top positions from India for this study. Judgement or purposive sampling by non-probability method was used to choose the respondents. Their perception was studied and analysed using exploratory factor analysis, and Karl Pearson's Correlation. The factors influencing women perception of organisational politics was identified and summarised that women did work with turnover intention in their job however successful positions they were holding.

  • Evidence of moral hazard in employee performance: an empirical

      Abstract: Incentive schemes in organisations are generally based on the self-interest and willingness of the employees rather than coercion. But in most of the organisations, compensation system is designed by themselves as per their interests to motivate and induce an extra effort from the agent side. But this may create certain problems in employer-employee trust which should be taken care of. The Nobel Prize winning theory in Economics named 'Contract Theory' describes about the problems and issues that arise and exist in incomplete incentive contracts and suggests the possible solutions too. This research article attempts to assess the impact of the two associated paradigms, 'moral hazard' and 'risk aversion' existing in the relationship between the principal and the agent on their employment contracts that leads to the effectiveness of the employee's performance based on their incentive schemes. The study attempts to analyse with appropriate statistical tools to assess the association and impact on the dependent and independent variables identified for the study. The results indicate the conformity of the 'Contract Theory' and contribute to its significance to assist the decision-making and implementation of the incentive system by the corporates.

      Abstract: Micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) in India play a vital role in developing the country where more than 120 million persons are employed in these sectors. The study is based on secondary data to evaluate MSMEs performance and bring out the impact of Goods and Service Tax from date of its implementation on MSMEs in parameters such as number of enterprises, employment, exports and fixed investment applying the Ordinary Least Square (OLS) regression method. The finding of paper shows that the share of MSME in GVA and GDP are stagnated from 2012-13 to 2017-18 and in 2017-18 share of MSME in GVA increased by 0.02% which shows positive impact of GST on gross value-added working enterprises and market values of fixed assets are positively influenced by the indirect taxes on MSMEs. This paper will help the entrepreneurs of MSMEs to overcome the challenges posed by GST implementation.

      Abstract: The purpose of this study is to examine how entrepreneurial orientation influences firm performance of female entrepreneurs in Sri Lanka. The proposed conceptual model delineates the direct relationship between innovativeness, proactiveness, risk-taking, autonomy and competitive aggressiveness - the five dimensions of entrepreneurial orientation - and firm performance of female-owned entrepreneurial firms. This study used a randomly selected sample of 267 female-owned entrepreneurial firms in Sri Lanka to test the hypothesised relationships between the constructs; structural equation modelling was performed. The findings of this study confirmed that entrepreneurial orientation has a positive effect on firm performance of female-owned entrepreneurial firms in Sri Lanka. Particularly, findings confirm that all five dimensions of entrepreneurial orientation (innovativeness, proactiveness, risk-taking, autonomy and competitive aggressiveness) have a positive impact on the performance of these firms. Thus, entrepreneurial orientation is a mechanism and a strategy for the success and the survival of female-owned entrepreneurial firms.
