Ngueviuta Patoko, Rashad Yazdanifard
American Journal of Industrial and Business Management (AJIBM) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/ajibm.2014.410061
Abstract: For an organization in order to ensure that it is running smoothly, and its goals are being met to the best of the organization ability, there must be a solid communication between the management and employees involved. Therefore, communication is supposed to be effective and efficient when it is being used in the organization. Management should ensure that there are less jargon words that are being used in the daily communication with the employees in order to avoid miscommunication that may be detrimental to organizational success. This is also to make sure that communication is still serving its purpose in the organization, of information or ideas sharing. In situations where insufficient communication occurs, it tends to hamper the effective and efficient communication, as a result it leads employees to being demoralized and having a high employee turnover, relationships between employees and employers being tarnished, wastage of organizational resources and as well as negatively impact the organization productivity. Employees should be treated with care as they form a very integral component of the organization. In this paper, the impact of using many jargon words, while communicating with the organization employees is being investigated.

Makali Juliet Maria, Wainaina Githii, Ogoro Thomas Ombati
American Journal of Industrial and Business Management (AJIBM) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/ajibm.2018.84058
Abstract: The purpose of this study is to establish the relationship between ethics and procurement performance of humanitarian organizations in Kenya. The study draws on data from 70 humanitarian organizations and makes use of multiple regression models to deduce the relationship. Findings show that humanitarian organizations in Kenya follow procurement ethics code. Further work is needed to examine the relationship between ethics and procurement performance of humanitarian organizations in Africa as this would give a wide range of conclusions and recommendations. Future studies could relate the independent variables used in this study to cost reduction strategy instead of agility strategy addressed herein. The results indicate that ethics is shaping up today’s humanitarian picture by ensuring that donors and other interested parties have confidence in supporting the humanitarian cause. This is the first paper to systematically analyze relationship between ethics and procurement performance of humanitarian organizations in Kenya.

The Nexus Between Organization and Its Environment, Using a Stakeholder’s Approach to Business Organization: A Theoretical Perspective
International Business and Management , 2012, DOI: 10.3968/j.ibm.1923842820120401.0145
Abstract: Organization effectiveness depends on the interaction with the environment. No organization can isolate itself from the environment because it forms an integral part of the system. Implicitly it is a subsystem contributing to the efficiency and development of the environmental system. Aside from the fact that it is a subsystem, it will be disastrous to have an insignificant relationship between the organization and other elements in the entire environment. The success of any profitable and socially responsible organization is to create a favorable, friendly and successful relationship with the environment. This paper illuminates some of the stakeholders and the need to have a nexus between the organization and the stakeholders in order to achieve the stated objectives. Secondary method of collecting data which includes the use of journals and other related literature materials were used. Having clarified the need for nexus between the organization and its stakeholders using stakeholders approach, the researchers recommended that the study should be empirically tested. More so, the dynamism of the environment calls for the dynamic and ever progressive nature of the organization. Key words: Organizations; Environment; Stakeholders; Business organizations
Utilizing GIS in Nonprofit Organizations for Urban Planning Applications: Experiences from the Field  [PDF]
Kheir Al-Kodmany
Journal of Geographic Information System (JGIS) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/jgis.2012.44034
Abstract: This paper provides detailed examinations on the use of GIS in nonprofit organizations. We interviewed planners and GIS experts in key nonprofit organizations in the City of Chicago to comprehend their actual usages of GIS, faced challenges, and accumulated experiences. Organizations reported on dozens of projects where GIS was used for practical urban planning applications. Findings indicate that nonprofit organizations offer extremely useful lessons on using GIS for projects at the local, regional, and national levels. They provide extensive experiences on GIS technical problems and solutions, methodologies, and data issues. Their projects often support philanthropic efforts and respond to the needs of low-income communities. However, the organizations’ resources are dwindling. This paper raises a concern about the importance of sustaining their GIS operations particularly with the current economic downturn. We call on government officials to support nonprofit organizations in order to ensure the continuity of their GIS activities.

Anna Nordin, Kersti Theander, Bodil Wilde-Larsson, Gun Nordstr?m
Open Journal of Nursing (OJN) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/ojn.2013.38A005

Many hospital patients are affected by adverse events. Managers are important when improving safety. The perception of patient safety culture varies among health care staff. Health care staff (n = 1023) working in medical, surgical or mixed medical-surgical health care divisions answered the 51 items (14 dimensions) Swedish Hospital Survey on Patient Safety Culture (S-HSOPSC). Respondents with a managerial function scored higher than non-managers for 11 of 14 dimensions, indicating patient safety culture strengths for a majority of dimensions. Enrolled nurses and staff with experience > 10 years also scored high for several dimensions. The 12 dimensions and sample characteristics explained 49% and 26% of the variance for the outcome dimensions Overall Perceptions of Safety and Frequency of Incident Reporting, respectively. RNs, ENs and physicians have different views on patient safety culture. Hospital Management Support and Organisational Learning is some important factors influencing patient safety culture. Bridging the gap in health care staff’s perceptions of safety in order to improve patient safety is of utmost importance. Managers have the responsibility to foster patient safety culture at their workplace and can thus benefit from results when improving safety for patients.

Collective Responsibility: Organizations as Organic Entities  [PDF]
Robert Albin
Open Journal of Philosophy (OJPP) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/ojpp.2016.64036
Abstract: The question of who exactly is responsible for an organization’s actions cannot be too carefully considered, as a clear understanding of this point is crucial from ethical, moral, managerial, and public perspectives. This article discusses how to justify a non-participant member’s responsibility for the actions of other group members, establishing collective responsibility. The article develops a novel context-depended framework that solves this problem by supplying good grounds for perceiving organizations as organic entities, which is adequate for establishing collective responsibility. I suggest that to be responsible for the actions of an organization, one has to belong to that organization, even if one has not taken any part at any level in group actions. The more regular concept of causal responsibility is not applicable here since it cannot account for the responsibility of non-participant members.
