  • A Study on Organizational Trust, Citizenship Behavior and Knowledge Sharing: Evidence from Hotels in Vietnam   Order a copy of this article
    by Thi Giang Le, Nhu Quynh Le Thi, Hoang Phung Nguyen Bach, Nam Tien Duong 
    Abstract: This study focuses on the correlation between organisational trust, organisational citizenship behaviour, and knowledge sharing (KS) among employees in Vietnam's international hotels. Convenient sampling was used to collect data through questionnaires. Their direct supervisors were asked to assist in pairing them in a 1:5 ratio for the assessment of their organisational citizenship behaviour. With a sample of 537 valid questionnaires, the study found that organisational trust has a significant positive impact on organisational citizenship behaviour and knowledge sharing behaviour. Organisational citizenship behaviour has a significant positive impact on knowledge sharing. Organisational citizenship behaviour also acts as a mediator between organisational trust and knowledge sharing (the intention and the actual behaviour of sharing). The findings of this study will help international hotels understand the importance of organisational trust and provide a basis for improving organisational citizenship behaviour and knowledge sharing, ultimately leading to improved revenue and performance.

    by Shama ., Syed Shahid Mazhar, Anis Ur Rehman, Farhina Sardar Khan 
    Abstract: This study aims to review major research trends in leveraging technology and innovation in the context of small businesses or SMEs. This study employs bibliographic mapping to throw light on the major research findings considering innovative capabilities of SMEs with the adaptation of advanced technologies. The results of this study show that developing countries such as India are leading in research on leveraging technology and innovation in SMEs followed by Malaysia, USA, China and Nigeria. The most frequently used terms were SMEs, MSMEs, technology adoption and innovation, and the five clusters that emerged after analysis of keywords were entrepreneurship, digital transformation, internal capabilities, sustainable development and innovation. The results of the present study shall guide numerous stakeholders, including researchers, to find the level of interconnection of emerging technology with innovations in businesses.

  • Innovation Types, Sources and Challenges in ICT Hubs: Empirical Evidence from Nigeria   Order a copy of this article
    by Abimbola David Adelowo, Caleb Adelowo, Gbonjubola O. Binuyo, Matthew Ilori 
    Abstract: The innovation pace in the information and communication technology (ICT) hubs is unprecedented, creating new opportunities for jobs and economic competitiveness. Data and information on the types, sources, and challenges of innovations in the sector are required to make the sector more productive and impactful. This study x-rays the types, sources, and challenges of innovations in the sector to provide appropriate suggestions for enhancing innovations and productivity in Nigeria ICT hubs. Data was collected from 125 founders and employees of ICT hub operators, spread across seven locations in Lagos state. The results show that most of the firms in the hubs engage in web and software applications such as mobile and desktop applications (apps). About 31.3% of firms also reported new product/service innovations in the last three years, including incremental and a few radical innovations. Major barriers to innovation in the sector include poor funding, irregular power supply and inadequate infrastructure. The study concludes with practical and managerial implications of the findings.

  • Volatility implications on IT index during pre and post COVID-19 outbreak: Evidence from India   Order a copy of this article
    by Peeyush Bangur, Sugandha Sharma, Deepak Shrivastava 
    Abstract: The COVID-19 outbreak has had an impact on the Indian capital market. However, some industries become highly vulnerable, while others continue to perform well during and after the crisis. Following the global outbreak of the disease, the IT sector has become one of the most thriving sectors in the world. In this context, a comparative analysis has been made by examining the performance of the Nifty IT index and the Nifty 50 of the Indian stock market during the pre- and post-COVID-19 periods. Our findings indicate that COVID-19 has an impact on the volatility persistence of Nifty IT and Nifty 50 index returns. With the announcement of COVID-19, the analyses exhibit a rise in unconditional variance of the Nifty IT index by 178% and the Nifty 50 index by 255%, which signifies that the Nifty 50 has been more volatile than the Nifty IT index after the COVID-19 announcement. This paper contributes to knowledge in a novel way, and it is the first empirical study to quantify the change in volatility of the Nifty IT index in the Indian stock market before and after COVID-19.
