Impact of Training and Job Involvement on Job Performance

N. Thevanes and T. Dirojan, Sri Lanka

Abstract: This paper aims to examine the relationship between training and job performance and to test the relationship between job involvement and job performance. In order to achieve the study objectives, primary data were collected from 137 employees of Sri Lanka Telecom (SLT) in Batticaloa district. The correlation and simple linear regression analysis were used to achieve the study objectives. Findings of the study revealed that, there are positive and significant relationship exists between training and job performance. Similarly, there is a positive and significant relationship exists between job involvement and job performance. Findings from this study have important implications for academics as well as practitioners on how to enhance the job performance of employees by enhance the training and job involvement

Promoting and Advancing Leadership through Education: Few guidelines

M. A. Akkas, Bangladesh

Abstract: People throughout the world are highly concerned with lacking in the right kind of leadership to resolve the social, economic, political, and environmental challenges that we are encountering. World leaders could not address many serious problems effectively. There is a leadership crisis all over the world. Some countries, for instance, Canada, Switzerland, South Korea, and Norway, are going ahead because of having effective leadership, while others (Bangladesh, Myanmar, Ghana, Iraq) are lagging behind. It is leadership that makes a big difference. It is claimed that managers are inferior to leaders in terms of personality, risk taking behavior, attitude and goal orientation. Many poor countries have transformed into mid-level income countries, for example, Korea, Malaysia, Brazil because of effective and efficient political leadership and economic diplomacy. This indicates that leadership is key to success and prosperity of a country or organization. Thus, we need more leaders than managers. Leadership is distinct skill. There are many managers who run their organizations without adequate leadership qualities and eventually organizations make huge losses. They probably use the wrong criteria to select leaders by focusing on technical rather than leadership skills. Questions are often raised, why is leadership so hard? Can leadership skill be acquired through education and experience? Why is leader’s superior to managers? Becoming a great leader in the workplace is a not an easy job. There is an age old debate about whether or not leaders can be made, or if you have to be born that way. There are plenty of arguments for and against this debate. Many theories so far have been formulated and developed in support of this debate. It is believed that leadership qualities can be advanced and promoted through education. The literature reveals that great leaders are made, not born. People are not born to be great leaders. The review of the literature confirmed that appropriate education and experience can make people great leaders. This paper is an attempt to highlight the role of education or educational institutes in promoting and advancing leadership in business, political and social arena. This paper also addresses the major differences between a leader and a manager. Leadership is a distinct skill and this skill can be attained through proper education at the school, college and university levels.

A Class of Two-step Second Derivative Adam Moulton Method with Two Off-Step Points for Solving Second Order Stiff Ordinary Differential Equations

Y. Skwame; J. Sabo; T. Y. Kyagya; I. A. Bakari, Nigeria

Abstract: In this research work, a class of two-step second derivative Adam Moulton method with two offstep points for solving second order stiff ordinary differential equations is studied. The newly constructed method was applied to solve some systems of second-order stiff ordinary differential equations. From the results obtained, it was clear that the method developed performed better than the existing methods with which we compared our results. The developed Adams method is also consistent, zero-stable and convergent with uniform order ten

Causes and Effects of Stray Domestic Animals On Public Roads: A Case Study of R37 Between Polokwane and Burgersfort in Limpopo Province

Mr. Mbangiseni Adam Mashau, South Africa

Abstract: Although coexistence of human beings and domestic animals is natural, interaction between moving machinery such as high speed motor vehicles and stray domestic animals has propensity to results in human fatalities and a number of animals getting killed. Property damage and related costs incurred following collision between motor cars and animals are huge and exorbitant respectively. Damages caused on motor vehicles during collision with animals are often repairable whilst human life and limbs have no readily available spares. The road (R37 between Polokwane and Burgersfort) is notorious for taking precious lives due to crashes between vehicles and stray domestic animals. Stray domestic animals belong to people that have responsibilities of ensuring that they are safely kept and looked after. Although it is also a responsibility of motorists to avoid collision with moving or stationary objects on the road, it is similarly imperative that livestock owners should ensure that their animals do not position themselves in collision course with moving motor vehicles. There must be a reason(s) for domestic animals to stray off thereby interfering with high speed motor vehicles on the road, R37 in particular. Despite the fact that it would seem normal and acceptable for accidents to happen, it cannot be acceptable that human lives, properties and animal lives are recklessly lost while we pretend as though everything is fine when it is in fact not. It is for this reason that, causes of domestic animals getting astray thereby roaming the country’s public roads, as well as effect of their collision with moving motor vehicle should be explores.
