The Role of Contextual Factors in Knowledge Transfer in Transactional Projects 2019-07-03T07:01:54+00:00 FARIBA shoeleh mahmoud golabchi siamak haji yakhchali <p>Nowadays, with a significant growth in the number of organizations, they seeks to increase their competitive advantages as much as possible. One of the effective approaches is knowledge management, through which organizations try to reuse the experiences and knowledge created in their previous projects. Today, many projects are carried out by forces from other nationalities, in which each participating organization operates within complex national, organizational, and information contexts. So, knowledge is transferred between geographically dispersed individuals and organizations, and across cultural and national boundaries. Given these conditions, knowledge management processes, especially the transfer and acquisition of knowledge, are very important. The purpose of the present study is to design a conceptual framework of the contextual factors affecting the knowledge transfer in transnational projects using meta-synthesis method. For this purpose, firstly the previous research has been studied and interpreted the factors which are effective in transferring knowledge from different sources and then analyzed them using the open coding method to propose a conceptual framework</p> 2018-11-08T08:28:02+00:00 Copyright (c) 2018 INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF MANAGEMENT & INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY The effect of E-Learning on Teachers' Motivation: A case study in Jeddah University 2019-07-03T06:56:32+00:00 Hadhami Kaabi Tagreed Alsulimani <p>E-learning is &nbsp;defined as a learning tool that is supported by information and communication technology.

In cultural creative industry, Internet of things has been widely practiced now, and will still have many creative potential in art work applications. In this consequence, the satisfaction of risk management requirements plays a fundamental role. Unfortunately, there is little objective, scientific research focused on evaluating the risks of security issues that result from information exchange among Internet of Things. In this study, the Grey Relational Analysis (GRA) is employed to identify and evaluate the risks of IoT. This research finds that Privacy, Access Control, and Trust are the top three risk factors. Using IoT in cultural creative industry is a new inevitable business trend, it is an unavoidable responsibility to our society to govern and constitute a healthy environment for all the related users.</p> 2018-11-13T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2018 INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF MANAGEMENT & INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY How do Humans Interact with Chatbots?: An Analysis of Transcripts 2019-03-01T04:23:44+00:00 Mina Park Milam Aiken Laura Salvador <p>Chatbots enable machines to emulate human conversation, and recent developments have resulted in many online systems for the public to use. Although a few studies have investigated how humans interact with such programs, we are not aware of any that have analyzed transcripts in depth. In this study, students interacted with two Web-based chatbots, Rose and Mitsuku, for five minutes and evaluated how well they thought the software emulated human conversation. We reviewed the transcripts and found that students used fairly simple language and made many text errors. There were no significant differences between the two systems in our experimental measures, but we found that Rose tended to change the topic more often and Mitsuku seemed more argumentative.</p> 2018-11-13T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2018 INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF MANAGEMENT & INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY Combating insider fraud in Financial Institutions/impact 2019-02-27T11:37:03+00:00 Yaya Itai Emmanuel Onwubiko <p>The fear of fraud is constant. Unfortunately, now more than ever before, fraud is being committed by employees on the inside, the very people who are supposed to be supporting and protecting an organization. Even though the financial industry is one of the most regulated, financial institution are still getting with the highest rate of internal fraud. Insider threat has always existed within each Financial Institution. In the recent years, insider threat has become a more prominent issue because of the emerging trends in the workplace. This change to a more flexible and productive workplace environment allows employees to easily gain access to an organization’s critical and sensitive information. While the risk of insider threat has certainly increased, Financial Institution have not deployed enough controls to mitigate this risk either because they believe that the frequency of such threat is very low or because they feel powerless to do so.</p> <p>&nbsp;This paper tends to employ techniques that would abate the spate of Insider fraud and cybercrime on customer transactions and insider processing which is in full compliance with most regulatory mandate of Countries Government bank.</p> 2019-01-17T10:10:33+00:00 Copyright (c) 2019 INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF MANAGEMENT & INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY The Moderating Effect of Organizational Characteristics on The Relationship Between Information Technology Integration and Performance: Empirical Evidence from Selected Public Hospitals in Kenya 2019-09-16T11:12:36+00:00 Kenneth Iloka Malongo Stephen Muathe Stephen Titus Waithaka <p>With the continuing digital revolution steered by the Internet, organizations are moving towards information technology integration to improve their performance. Regrettably, these developments have in no way been all-inclusive. The health gap between public institutions in first, second and third world nations has broadened. Public organizations in second and third world nations are characterized by poor performance. This study sought to establish the moderating effect of organizational characteristics on the relationship between information technology and performance of public hospitals in Kenya.&nbsp; The study used Technology Organization Environment (TOE) theory. The study was guided by explanatory and cross-sectional research design. The target population was 98 public hospitals in Kenya. Multi-stage sampling technique was used to select a sample size of 294 respondents. Primary data was collected using semi-structured questionnaires. For data analysis, descriptive statistics and multiple regression analyses were used. The study results established that organizational characteristics moderated the relationship between information technology integration and performance of public hospitals in Kenya. Therefore, study concluded that organizational characteristics play a major role in an organization’s adoption and utilization of information technology integration. The study recommends technologies should be customized to fit the type of organizational characteristics for better performance.</p> 2019-09-14T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2019 Kenneth Iloka Malongo, Stephen Muathe, Stephen Titus Waithaka
