Impact of Stock Market Performance Indices on Economic Growth david parmenter key performance indicators developing implementing and using winning kpis
The controversy on the impact of stock market performance and economic growth and development is empirically evaluated in this study, using Nigerian data. This effort is spurred by the raging debate on the relevance of stock market in promoting economic growth. Using the Ordinary Least Square regression method, the empirical evidence suggest that stock market size and turnover ratio promote economic growth, while stock market liquidity hurts economic growth. Although our result suggests that stock mark performance indices promote economic growth and development, this evidence should be viewed with some caution. The measure of stock market performance used in this study may not be adequate. Although the market capitalization ratio (market capitalization/GDP), value of transactions traded ratio (value of transaction traded/GDP), and turnover ratio (value of transaction traded/market capitalization) as proxies of stock market performance has been popular in literature, it clearly does not include other indicators of stock market development like international integration, market concentration, regulatory and institutional indicators and stock market volatility.

Performance Indicators and Quality of Education david parmenter key performance indicators developing implementing and using winning kpis
Education has long been recognized as a central factor in development. However, public supply of education is increasingly being undermined by financial constraints being faced by the governments. The private schools hire their teachers, procure learning facilities and provide education to those who can afford. The study provides the qualitative aspects of private primary schools and their effects on the pupil academic achievement. The relevance of private schools depends on the quality of education they offer. This quality can objectively be measured by performance indicators. The author examines this controversial issue of relevance of private schools in Kenya. The study demonstrates that the performance of private schools in Kenya is above average despite the many challenges the private schools face, a fact which should guide general education policy and discourse.

Development of the Namibian Marine Fishing Sub-sector, 1990-2007: david parmenter key performance indicators developing implementing and using winning kpis
Globally, marine fisheries resources as a source of food and income are under the threat of over-utilization. Sustainable development of these resources to satisfy needs of the present and future generations is an absolute necessity. Achieving sustainable development is a major challenge, especially among developing fishing nations which depend more on fisheries resources. In Namibia, a developing fishing nation, many fisheries resources were over-utilized pre-independence. Thus, measures implemented post-independence were aimed at sustainable development of fisheries resources. Sustainability analysis of the Namibian marine fishing sub-sector has never been done before. Hence, this book gives a sustainability analysis of the Namibian marine fishing sub-sector using a total of seven indicators covering all aspects of sustainable development such as ecological, socio-economic, and technological. Key features of this book: • Sustainability analysis of the sub-sector using indicators. • Development trends construction and interpretation of the sub-sector.

Wireless eBusiness Infrastructure, a developing country perspective david parmenter key performance indicators developing implementing and using winning kpis
This book interrogates the suitability of wireless technologies to implement an eBusiness infrastructure in Micro and Small Enterprises (MSEs) in developing countries, particularly in Kenya. A research model was developed based on literature and information obtained from a pilot study. A preliminary study was conducted to refine the proposed model and inclusion of any variables limiting the suitability of wireless technologies as MSEs’ eBusiness infrastructure. The proposed model was empirically tested using data collected using a survey questionnaire and five descriptive case studies. The constructs were assessed for reliability, validity and exploratory factor analysis using SPSS and validated via a confirmatory factor analysis using Structural Equation Modeling with AMOS maximum likelihood method. Most Kenyans live in rural areas of the country with no access to mainstream technologies and a considerable digital divide exists, particularly between the urban and rural areas. This necessitated an intra-country comparison of access and use of wireless technologies in rural and urban MSEs in implementing an eBusiness infrastructure.

Six sigma for supply chains david parmenter key performance indicators developing implementing and using winning kpis
Supply chain management aims to add value across the supply chain and customer service is a major strategic issue. Supply chains are complex and subject to variables of forecast, supply, process, and transportation which can lead to problems such as the bull whip effect, product lateness, damaged goods and stock outs. A key issue is how to monitor and control performance across the chain and meet customer’s needs. In this work an order fulfillment model using Design for six sigma, which focuses on customer requirements from design onset and fuzzy logic, which accounts for the variable supply chain environment, is presented. By applying the model in a case study, a representation of detailed activities of order fulfillment processes is demonstrated providing key internal and external performance indicators. A theoretical transfer function for predicting the performance of the perfect order incorporating fuzzy set theory provides a way of monitoring supply chain performance. This is an effective way to monitor and control order fulfillment variables, optimise the order fulfillment process, meet customer requirements and make incremental step towards supply chain integration.

Political Dominance and Economic Performance in the American States david parmenter key performance indicators developing implementing and using winning kpis
This study contributes the literature by developing a new method of measuring political dominance combining the legislative and executive branches in bi-party political system and by investigating the effect of political dominance on economic performance using panel data for forty-six states of United States for the period 1937-1996. Economic performance is measured by the relative level of per-capita personal income and growth of per-capita personal income. This study finds that political dominance has significant negative effects on the level of relative per-capita personal income and on the growth of per-capita personal income. Additionally, this study modifies the two existing measures of political dominance using exclusively seat share of legislative branches or governor’s vote share and examines the short run effect of political dominance on economic performance using these modified measures. It finds that political dominance using exclusively seat share of legislative branches or governor’s vote share either overestimates or underestimates the effect of political dominance on economic performance.

Learner-Centered Approach and Students' Performance david parmenter key performance indicators developing implementing and using winning kpis
Improving teaching and learning, particularly by the use of learner-centered approaches (LCA), has been a fundamental concern in any education system. Despite this importance, substantial shortfalls have been observed in most of developing countries.In all levels of education. Teachers still concentrate on teaching by using traditional approaches resulting into de-motivation and poor performance of students. Focused on the topic of field research techniques in Geography, this book intends on the improvement of teaching and learning especially through developing a teaching and learning material (module) based on the learner-centered approach which would minimize the problem of learning by rote methods. Specifically, the designed material was intended to raise students’ participation, motivation and performance.

Performance analysis of data grid using GridSim david parmenter key performance indicators developing implementing and using winning kpis
The GridSim firstly summarizes and defines data grid models and the process of job scheduling, simultaneously analyzes the time and cost of job execution in the data grid. The job scheduling strategy influences the QoS of the data grid immediately and then proposes a design proposal of the job scheduling simulator of data grid based on a grid simulator named GridSim and introduces the architecture, process and key technologies of the job scheduling simulator. By using this simulator we can determine the resource failure so that the performance of the data grid can be analysed. This involves implementation of job scheduling in a grid for handling resource failure using GridSim simulator. Moreover, the resources may suffer failures, and all of this obviously would affect the performance received by the users. In this paper we present an extension to one of the most popular grid simulators GridSim to support variable resource availability. Through which the overall performance can be determined. Finally, it proves that this scheduling simulator can satisfy the need of research on the data grid optimization in Grid Computing.
