Thus, currencies derived from the marketing of cocoa, coffee (both traditional crops) then palm oil and coconut; cotton fibers, ... and more recently raw or pre-treated rubber latex, cashew nuts, to name just a few, alongside logs from logging, and finally fish products such as tuna and many other fishery products, Côte d'Ivoire has been able to build schools, universities, hospitals, build industries, build roads, ports, ... in short develop other economic sectors and ensure the good social being of Ivorians. At the same time, agriculture produced the "economic miracle" of our country. But since the fall in prices of agricultural raw materials, the contribution of the agricultural sector to the national GDP has decreased (it is now 25% (APA NEWS, 2018)), and this, along with the various economic, social and economic crises. policies that the country has been experiencing since 1990.</p> Prosper Yao KOUADIO, ETIEN Dibiéthéodore, TIEBRE Marie-Solange, BORAUD N' Takpé Kama Copyright (c) 2019 International Journal of Scientific Research and Management Tue, 11 Jun 2019 12:23:04 +0000 Influence Of Technostructural Interventions On Organizational Performance: A Case Study Of Commercial Banks In Kenya <p><em>Technostructural interventions are an expensive typology of organisation development interventions. Commercial banks in Kenya have however been seen to increasingly adopt these interventions in a bid to drive up performance. The literature, on the other hand, indicates that empirical studies on the effects of these interventions have indicated varied results across different sectors and settings. This study therefore sought to establish the effect of technostructural interventions on the performance of commercial banks in Kenya. The typologies of technostructural interventions considered were job enrichment, employee involvement and physical layout. The study adopted a cross sectional research design. Multivariate analysis indicated that job enrichment and physical layout do not have an effect on performance of commercial banks in Kenya. Employee involvement was however found to have a positive and significant effect on the perfomance of commercial banks in Kenya. </em></p> <p><strong>&nbsp;</strong></p> Moses Siruri Marwa, Dr. Mary J.

Past studies on the determinants of CEO’S compensation revealed a lack of consensus to the explanation of increases in CEO’S compensation. While most of the studies confirm linkages between organizational performance and CEO’S compensation, they measured organizational performance using financial indicators of performance, the current study investigates the relationship between organizational performance and CEO’S compensation but differs from the previous studies by expanding the measures of organizational performance to include the balanced scorecard measures of financial indicators, customer satisfaction, internal processes and learning and growth elements of performance. Additionally, the study sought to find out the moderating role of firm size on the relationship between organizational performance and CEO’S compensation. The theoretical foundation of this study was based on agency theory. A conceptual model and conceptual hypothesis were drawn from literature and provided directions for this study. The study’s population constituted 60 firms listed at the NSE. Descriptive crossectional survey was adopted for this study. Primary data was collected to capture the opinion of board members on factors that determine levels of CEO’S compensation using semi structured questionnaire. Secondary data was gathered from the financial statements of the listed firms for 2015-2016 financial periods. Descriptive statistics and stepwise regression were used to analyze and interpret the collected data. The study revealed that there was significant and positive relationship between organizational performance and CEO’S compensation. The study further found that firm size had a significant moderating effect on the relationship between organizational performance and CEO’S compensation.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> Omamo Anne, Peter K’ obonyo, Florence Muindi Copyright (c) 2019 International Journal of Scientific Research and Management Mon, 17 Jun 2019 06:06:08 +0000 Using an Improvised Abacus to Assist Samproso M/A Junior High School Level One Pupils to Overcome the Problem of Place Value Concept in Mathematics <p>This study is an action research work done to help the JHS one (1) pupils of Samproso M/A Basic School in Offinso South Municipal Assembly to identify place value of 4 - 5 digits in numerals. The study was undertaken in order to bring out the meaning of place value, the importance of teaching and learning materials (TLMs) in teaching and also the teaching and learning materials (TLMs) that could be used in teaching place value as a concept in mathematics. The study used an improvised abacus to help improve pupils’ understanding of the concept of place value. Purposive as well as random sampling technique was selected and used as the study was limited to where the problem was identified and they all shared the same problem. In all, sixty-five (65) pupils comprising thirty-three (33) boys and thirty-two girls from the sample groups were used. Three research questions were formulated to guide the study. Pre-test, observation, interview questionnaire and post-test were the research instruments used to gather reliable data for the study. Pupils were also found to have developed favourable attitude towards mathematics. Recommendations were made with regards to teachers and pupils’ attitude in the teaching of mathematics at the basic school level</p> Daniel Amoah, Kwame B.

The objective of the paper was to examine strategies for addressing fertilizer price build up in Tanzania that would increase fertilizer use and create demand by smallholder farmers. We use secondary data from the reviewed literature on factors for price build up in Tanzania. The study adopts the supply chain analysis from the source of origin, importation, shipping costs, port service charges, quantity procured, methods of procurement, blending and packaging, as well as means of transportation used. The key determinants in the chain include the Cost, Insurance and Freight (CIF), port charges, port handling costs, bagging, storage fees and means of transportation. The most two significant drivers for the fertilizer price build up is the procurement method and means of transportation that seem to significantly increase farm gate prices. It has been established that price build up is a function of quantity imported due to economies of scale; that is to say importing small quantities pushes buyers to pay high prices for the product and shipping expenses. The infrastructural factors for fertilizer price build up are associated with the mode of transportation as either road haulage or railways use. It has been established that transporting bulky fertilizers to various destinations by road is more expensive when relatively compared with railway transportation. The paper, therefore recommends for policy change that emphasize bulky fertilizer transportation by railways and monitor its implementation.</p> Francis Mwaijande Copyright (c) 2019 International Journal of Scientific Research and Management Thu, 13 Jun 2019 10:43:15 +0000 Presidential Threshold Concept in the Democratic Perspective in Indonesia <p>This study aims to analyze the Presidential Threshold Concept in the Democratic Perspective in Indonesia. This is because democracy currently applies the principle of popular sovereignty where the highest government is in the hands of the people in this case the people are the source of the power of a country. The concept of PT is not in accordance with the aims and objectives of democracy. This research is a normative study with a legal approach, conceptual approach, and historical approach. Based on the results of the study concluded that it is known that the Democratic System, and the determination of the Presidential Threshold in this presidential election have violated democratic values, do not provide a sense of justice in a democratic party. Presidential systems, basing presidential elections on legislative election results is an anomaly. Because, the legitimacy basis of a president in a presidential system scheme is not determined by parliamentary political formation resulting from legislative elections. Presidential institutions and parliaments in presidential systems are two separate institutions that have different legitimacy bases.</p> Megawati Lestari, Zainal Asikin, Muh.

The legal issue that is the focus of this study identifies and analyzes the legal relationship between Go-Jek drivers and PT Go-Jek Indonesia in a partnership agreement in the form of e-contract. This research method is normative considering the existence of legal obscurity related to the partnership e-contract arrangement. The research approach used is the Legislative Approach and the Conceptual Approach. With the pattern of equal cooperation in partnership, the reality is that the legal relationship between PT Go-Jek Indonesia and the Go-Jek driver has been inequality. Therefore, the Go-Jek driver as a legal subject becomes weak and needs legal protection. Moreover, the partnership as outlined in the e-contract has not fully provided preventive and repressive legal protection.</p> Shandy Harsyahwardhana, Muhaimin, Eduardus Bayo Sili Copyright (c) 2019 International Journal of Scientific Research and Management Thu, 13 Jun 2019 05:00:17 +0000
