Shallu Sehgal,Suparn Sharma
Economic Journal of Development Issues , 2011, DOI: 10.3126/ejdi.v13i0.7213
Abstract: Using pooled data for the period of 1981-82 to 2007-08 for different categories of organized sector’s manufacturing industries for the sample state of Haryana, the present undertaking seeks to analyze the inter-temporal and inter-industry comparison of total factor productivity (TFP) measured by Malmquist productivity index (MPI), which is an application of DEA to panel data to calculate the indices of TFP change, technology change, efficiency change. The general development pattern observed by the Haryana is definitely not a healthy sign of structural change in the economy. The analysis of the discussion reflects that while the tertiary sectors have maintained its lion’s share in GDP of India and Haryana as well, the declining trend in the share of primary sector and more or less stable contribution of the secondary sector is noticeable. The study reveals that technical efficiency change is the key driver of TFPG in the manufacturing sector of Haryana during pre reforms period, however, the picture has turned around during the post reforms period. A positive impact of liberalization policy on technological advancement of the manufacturing sector of the state has been experienced. But, during the post reforms period the state has realized inefficiency in the utilization of resources in hand and it is really an alarming sign indicating that the incapability of manufacturing sector of the state in question to cope up with the technological advancement.

Journal of Internet Banking and Commerce , 2005,
Abstract: In the world of e-business the rapid growth of the market and fierce competition between the increasing numbers of participants add up to new innovations every day leading to short development cycles. New business models and a herd of start-up companies emerge every few months, to exploit the new opportunities. However, the business has had rough times trying to keep up with the rapid development of e-business. Despite the fact that more and more efforts are made to grasp the essentials of e-business and in particular e-business models, the existing literature on the subject is scattered. Moreover, the studies are quickly out-dated due to the fast phase of the 'new economy'. A clear need exists for an objective and up-to-date literature study of e-business models. This study is an effort to draw together some of the e-Business models and real-life experiments that has been circling around the e-business models. To study the sweeping changes brought about by e-initiative measures in the banking sector some banks were chosen, from public sector like SBI ,BOB etc and from private sector like ICICI, HDFC etc. The paper analyses a comparison of various models using metric method. The different elements of the metric include revenue generation, value proposition, infrastructure etc. A mathematical model taking into consideration various ranking and weightages to the elements of the metric has been developed to analyse whether investments in e-initiative increased productivity and profitability in the Indian banking system. The model suggests that the performance of the banking sector has improved considerably. Profitability, customer satisfaction, and many other parameters show a market improvement. It is believed that a mathematical approach proposed in this paper will find extensive application in other sectors of the economy also.

International Journal of Business and Management , 2012, DOI: 10.5539/ijbm.v7n19p45
Abstract: The aim of this research paper is to identify the effect of ERP successful implementation on employees' productivity, service quality and innovation. Data were collected via questionnaires from 129 employees working in the Jordanian telecommunication organizations. The collected data were analyzed using descriptive statistics and structural equation model to test the study hypotheses using AMOS 16.0. The results of this study revealed that there is a significant effect of organizational impact on employees' productivity, service quality and innovation. Whereas, satisfaction only affects the service quality and innovation of employees leaving the employee's productivity surprisingly not affected. This result is very likely due to the lack of suitable training. Therefore, one important recommendation is to develop a training course that identifies and explains to employees all the necessary changes that will occur to the business processes inside the organization as a result of the ERP implementation.

International Journal of Economics and Finance , 2012, DOI: 10.5539/ijef.v4n8p99
Abstract: This paper investigates the factors responsible for a high growth rate of labor productivity of the agricultural sector for the period 1976-93 for Taiwan. This investigation is carried out by a newly devised procedure which decomposes the growth rate of labor productivity into (1) the total substitution effect which consists of the effects due to factor price changes and biased technological change and (2) the TFP effect composed of the effects due to scale economies and technological progress. Based on empirical estimation of the translog cost function, it was found that the total substitution effect contributed to the growth of labor productivity much more than the TFP effect did for the period under question.

Panoeconomicus , 2013, DOI: 10.2298/pan1302139k
Abstract: The objective of this study is to measure the total factor productivity and the changes in components of the total factor productivity generated by the banks in Turkish Banking Sector (TBS) during the period of 2004-2009. Based on these measurements, we quantify the production efficiency of the banks. To that end, the total factor productivity is taken as an initial point, and various performance comparisons are made both within the specified three sub-groups and among all deposit banks in TBS. Within the context of performance measurement, we use input and output variables to test technical efficiency index, which represents a combination of change in technical efficiency and in technology, and to test a change in total factor productivity index which comprises a change in pure technical efficiency and scale efficiency. In the calculation of these indexes, Malmquist total factor productivity index method is employed. Computed indexes provide us with the opportunity to make performance comparisons in order to assess which group and bank have comparatively highest performance among the groups and banks included in this study. When we consider the effects of 2007-2008 global crises on Turkish economy, notably on TBS, calculating the performance change ratio for previous periods or estimating the same for the following periods becomes vital in terms of enduringly changing and developing banks. The growing competition in TBS forces banks to attach more importance to productivity factor for sustainable growth purposes. In this regard, Malmquist total factor productivity index gives us the opportunity to quantify the changes in total factor productivity over the years. Accordingly, this study applies group analysis to determine which group is working efficiently. To do this, Malmquist total factor productivity index requires the use of panel data and depicts efficiency changes by years, representing crucial information for us to produce policy implications. In brief, the test results obtained by this study indicate that the foreign banks, thanks to positive changes in their technology, technical efficiency and total factor productivity, are more effective than other private and state banking groups.

Pakistan Journal of Social Sciences , 2012,
Abstract: The study examines the impacts of poor productivity in 05 public sector and 05 private sector manufacturing enterprises in Bangladesh. The study reveals that direct material productivity, labor productivity per worker, capital productivity and total productivity had been 4 to 5 times higher in the private sector samples than those in the public sector samples during the study period. Whereas, labor productivity per Taka of direct wages was almost same in both the public sector and private sector samples. On the other hand, material total productivity had been higher in the public sector samples as compared to the private sector samples. Total productivity had been more or less satisfactory in all the private sector samples and in three out of five public sector samples. But, the same in the remaining two public sector samples had been poor and hence unsatisfactory. Labor productivity, capital productivity and total productivity had direct positive correlation with the profitability, measured in terms of profit margin, return on capital employed, return on investment and earning per hundred Taka share. Therefore, in order to improve existing profitability of the samples; it is essential to increase their productivity. To this end, the factors responsible for poor productivity as identified by the respondents must be removed without any further delay. For the purpose, the suggestions put forward by the respondents need to be implemented by the concerned authority.

International Journal of Knowledge and Research in Management and E-Commerce , 2012,
Abstract: The definition of brand has become a customer experience based concept. Therefore, it is not surprising that businesses are looking for ways to ensure that the brand experience is delivered in a way that stays true to the brand promise. But staying true to the brand promise is easier said than done. Senior management typically develops brand strategy, while the actual brand experience is most often delivered by the least-informed and lowest paid service associates. Also, to further complicate matters, these front line associates are often part-time. Best practices in internal branding can build that crucial bridge between strategy and execution. The paper talks about best practices in Internal branding in ITES Sector in India, with its challenges, techniques and tools. Various parameters are judged from the industry and it was analyzed that what is the satisfaction level of employee
