Managerial Skills, Financial Capability and Strategic Planning in Organizations  [PDF]
Vincent Bagire, Juliana Namada
American Journal of Industrial and Business Management (AJIBM) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/ajibm.2013.35055
Abstract:

This study sought to establish the relationship between managerial skills, financial capability and the level of strategic planning. The study was premised on the increasing focus on strategic planning in Ugandan organizations. There was however, a lack of local empirical studies on the factors driving this trend. Data were obtained from organizations in various sectors that included government institutions, private and family business organizations. The findings confirmed that organizations were involved in significant level of strategic planning. There was a positive and significant relationship with managerial skills. However, there was a very weak relationship with the financial capability. The implication of the findings for management was to give more attention to managerial skills to ensure congruence of operations.

An Examination of the Completion Rate of Masters Programs at Makerere University Business School  [PDF]
Samuel Eyangu, Vincent Bagire, Moses Kibrai
Creative Education (CE) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/ce.2014.522214
Abstract: This study was carried out to examine the completion rate for masters’ degree programs at Makerere University Business School. We investigated the delay in research, teaching schedules, administrative processes and students’ own challenges as possible limitations. The study relied on opinion from former students on possible strategies which can be put in place to improve completion. The study examined the masters of Business Administration (MBA) and the Msc. Accounting and Finance (Ms.AF). The study was cross sectional and used both qualitative and quantitative data. A sample size of 211 students was used covering those who had completed their masters within a two-year period and those who were not able to complete in the same period. Findings revealed that the completion rate of masters program was still very low. Delay in returning the research comments both by external examiners and the Graduate and Research Centre office was found to be the major cause, among others. This finding had support in the literature. The study recommends to management to improve the research and teaching environment.
Strategic Leadership and Employee Engagement, Evidences from an African Industrial Setting  [PDF]
Hannah Muzee, Vincent Bagire, Muhammed Ngoma
Open Access Library Journal (OALibJ) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/oalib.1102907
Abstract:
This study followed a cross-sectional and descriptive research design. The study aimed at establishing the relationship between strategic leadership and employee engagement. A simple random sampling design was employed to a sample obtained from one of the leading breweries in Uganda. The findings showed that strategic leadership was indeed evident in the organization. They also revealed that strategic leadership and employee engagement were significantly and positively correlated and that strategic leadership was significant predictor of employee engagement. It was therefore concluded that organizations should invest in training their managers in strategic leadership skills to improve on their relations with the subordinates.
Strategic Planning Systems and Firm Performance in the Export Processing Zones  [PDF]
Juliana Mulaa Namada, Vincent Bagire, Evans Aosa, Zachary B. Awino
American Journal of Industrial and Business Management (AJIBM) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/ajibm.2017.74035
Abstract: This study focused on strategic planning systems as predictors of performance in a developing country context. These concepts have not been adequately investigated in extant strategy literature. We contended that strategic planning systems should be emphasized as a configuration and not by its domains. The influence of resources, management participation and planning techniques on performance showed positive and significant results. In support of our conceptualization, the results were that strategic planning systems as an aggregate factor has a stronger influence on performance than its domains. We conclude that the configuration of planning systems with its theoretical underpinning in the dynamic capabilities and resource based view, explains performance variations among firms.

Eigenvector Sensitivity: A Kharitonov Result  [PDF]
Vincent Winstead
American Journal of Computational Mathematics (AJCM) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/ajcm.2013.32024
Abstract:

This study is motivated by a need to effectively determine the difference between a system fault and normal system operation under parametric uncertainty using eigenstructure analysis. This involves computational robustness of eigenvectors in linear state space systems dependent upon uncertain parameters. The work involves the development of practical algorithms which provide for computable robustness measures on the achievable set of eigenvectors associated with certain state space matrix constructions. To make connections to a class of systems for which eigenvalue and characteristic root robustness are well understood, the work begins by focusing on companion form matrices associated with a polynomial whose coefficients lie in specified intervals. The work uses an extension of the well known theories of Kharitonov that provides computational efficient tests for containment of the roots of the polynomial (and eigenvalues of the companion matrices) in desirable regions, such as the left half of the complex plane.

The Unemployment Volatility Puzzle: A Note on the Role of Reference Points  [PDF]
Vincent Boitier
Theoretical Economics Letters (TEL) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/tel.2015.51013
Abstract: This theoretical note aims at studying the role of reference points in generating unemployment volatility. For this purpose, I introduce the notion of reference points in a standard Mortensen-Pissarides model. I obtain two results. First, I find that the obtained model is similar to the one found by Pissarides in 2009. Second, I show that the introduction of reference points can increase significantly unemployment volatility through a mechanism à la Hagerdorn and Manovskii.
Review Article: Remote Sensing, Surface Residue Cover and Tillage Practice  [PDF]
Obade Vincent de Paul
Journal of Environmental Protection (JEP) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/jep.2012.32026
Abstract: A growing world population and possible liquid fuel energy shortages are likely to result in worldwide agricultural intensification, and the possible expansion of non-sustainable practices. The adoption of non-sustainable practices could result in the loss of currently productive land, with potential impacts on human welfare and economic viability. One of the easiest techniques to maintain productivity is to maintain surface soil organic matter. However, developing reliable, cost effective and accurate methods for quantifying and monitoring crop residue cover (a major source of soil organic matter) that remains on top of the soil over large spatial extents constitutes a significant challenge. This article reviews potential remote sensing approaches for estimating surface residue cover with a view to mapping tillage practice.
An Integrative Framework for Customizations on Satisfaction: The Case of an Online Jewelry Business in China  [PDF]
Vincent Cho, Candy Lau
Journal of Service Science and Management (JSSM) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/jssm.2014.72013
Abstract:

Upon the technological advancement of production flexibility, supply chain agility, and customer behavioral tracking, many online businesses now develop their customization strategies. In this regard, this study proposes an integrative framework for customization of product information, transaction handling, product attribute, and sales’ service. We are interested in how these customizations affect customer satisfaction. From our web-based survey on a renowned online jewelry company in China, we collected 1383 responses from its customer database. Our findings showed that information, product and sales’ service customizations have significant influence on customer satisfaction. Moreover, ordinary members as compared with VIP members feel more satisfied once they receive customized services.
