Abstract

Assess the performance of a patrimonial entity, its financial position and its change, the degree of risk in an economic and financial environment - socially dynamic, requires information far beyond the scope of financial-accounting information. Therefore, it is necessary to complete the financial data provided by the financial statements with the information on the technical and human potential (equipment quality, modernization, qualification of employees, level of labor productivity, etc.), commercial potential (quality of products / services and distribution network, price level, etc.), the intensity of competition, the position of the entity on the market, the image of the entity and its products / services, etc. All this information can be synthesized on responsibility boards (technical and production, human resources, trade-supply / sales / marketing, etc.) in a dashboard, which is a synoptic, legible and interpretable instrument, carried out with a certain frequency, which highlights the significant deviations between the results achieved and the fixed objectives, in order to ensure the necessary corrections for the good performance of the activity. This communication aims to highlight the results of the research on the importance of the dashboard as a control and pilotage tool for Romanian patrimonial entities.

Abstract

The study examined the impact of electricity supply on economic diversification in Nigeria, using time series data from 1981 to 2016. The study employed descriptive analysis and Autoregressive Distributed Lag (ARDL) techniques. The Augmented Dickey-Fuller unit root test showed that the variables are integrated of different orders.

The result from the Bounds co-integration test to show the presence of a long-run relationship among the variables was inconclusive. The short run (ARDL) model, however, indicated a positive insignificant relationship between electricity supply and economic diversification in Nigeria. The findings of the study revealed that the electricity supply had not played a fundamental role in enhancing economic diversification in Nigeria.

The study, therefore, recommended that for Nigeria to drive economic diversification through electricity supply, the government should fix the electricity supply problem which can be achieved by short-term action to reduce technical faults through maintenance of the transmission and distribution infrastructure or long-term interventions to expand generating capacity.

Abstract

While developed and most developing nations have seen the need and continue to invest heavily in the development and training of her manpower as shown by huge budgetary allocations to education and health, Nigeria continues to play politics with her human capital development policy which has been poor and only been effective on paper despite the huge outlay of human capital available at our disposal. This study therefore examined the impact of human capital development on the macroeconomic performance of Nigeria. Using autoregressive distributed lagged model, the study proxied human capital development using government expenditure on education, government expenditure on health, secondary school enrolment rate, and school enrolment rate at tertiary level, while per capita GDP was used as proxy variable for measuring macroeconomic performance.

The results of the estimated short and long run ARDL models indicated, an insignificant and negative relationship between human capital development and gross domestic product per capita (GDPPC) in the short run. Another result of this study is that, only tertiary enrolment rate (TER) has a significant and positive impact on gross domestic product per capita (GDPPC). This finding was an indication of relatively good but insufficient efforts by government to boost human capital. The study concluded that while human capital development is crucial for accelerated macroeconomic performance, government efforts aimed at boosting human capital has had a depressing effect on macroeconomic performance. On the strength of this, the study recommended that government and economic policy makers in Nigeria should place greater emphasis on human capital development.

Abstract

A way of opening new perspectives that has attracted the interest of researchers in counseling and psychotherapy at the beginning of the 1980s is Neuro-linguistic programming (international acronym: NLP). Ϲreated in the 70ꞌs by Βandler R.W. and Grinder J.Т. for the purpose of discovering human excellence, NLP is still considered today one of the “roads” to success, providing the necessary tools to achieve goals. Although the mid-80s’ surveys lowered the importance of the NLP basic ideas, decreasing the interest of Psychology Specialists in the field of Psychology to further research this area, a group of well-known colleagues and students in that period - among which we mention Ϲameron-Βandler, L., DeLozier, J., Dilts, R.Β., Gordon, D., Pucelik, F., Βуron, Α.L., Eicher, J., Муers-Αnderson, М., Gilligan, S.G., Αndreas, S. and Αndreas, Ϲ., Epstein, Т.Α., Hallbom, Т., Smith, S., Reese, E.J., and Reese, М., James, Т., Woodsmall, W., Jacobson S., Lankton, S.R., or Epstein, Т. (and the list may continue) – have made a significant contribution to the development and expansion of NLP since then until the present day.

Abstract

Customers’ complaints represent an opportunity for any organization who wants to improve relationship with customers, to find out the problems existing into organization and the way to solve them, to improve the amount of knowledge and the desire, beliefs, and needs of customers.

Having objective information, updated, clear and sincere, the organization may improve the quality of their products and services it offers. Thus, any complaints may be regarded as a gift not as a negative feedback from the customers, or as a two-way feedback based on trust and collaboration. A gift which will bring performance on long term based on win-win situations.

In this article we will disseminate the literature in the field and also we will analyze the results of a research made on 150 respondents who analyzed 10 institutions, the willingness to recommend them to other customers and the problem existing into these institutions, making a plan to overcome them. The objective of this analysis is to understand the role of customers’ complaints in improving the quality of the products and services and of the value obtained both for customers and organizations.

Our question is what kind of link is it and what is its impact? Some authors are proposing some kind of theories linking this concepts but we must understand better the implications for the companies.

Abstract

The human resources department represents a particular capital, which needs being listened to, motivation and training for the achievements of the organization’s objectives. The employee contributes or prevents the right turn of the things going on into a company. People are different from each other, and the transfer of practices considered standard in an activity or organization becomes inappropriate in another environment with different cultural and professional values. Human resources specialists avoid passing examples of good practice to other organizations due to the fact that successful recipes in a certain environment are impractical in another.

It is vital to create a motivational climate and an organizational culture that facilitates employee integration into the institution's needs and personal goals to match to organizations. The data was collected by means of a questionnaire applied to a representative sample of teaching staff in pre-university education in Dâmboviţa County. The teachers carry out their activity in academic high schools, technological and vocational schools. The data was used to outline an overview of what human resources are for the organization and to what extent it influences its performance.

Abstract

The quest for urgent solution to resolve the world liquidity problem has continued to generate enthusiastic debates among political economists, policy makers and the academia. The argument has focused on whether the World Bank Group was established to enhance the stability of international financial system or meant to enrich the developed nations.

This study argues that the existing political interest of the World Bank Group in Africa may serve as lesson learned to other ambitious African Monetary Union.
