A study of corporate governance and its matters david parmenter key performance indicators developing implementing and using winning kpis
The aim of this study is to examine the relationship of all corporate governance indicators with firm performance (proxied by price to book value ratio) and tax fees. Using a sample of 133 large U.S firms over the period 2005 to 2009, we explore the correlation of price to book value with board of director’s structure (composition and size). Our results show that smaller and younger boards with less independent directors lead to a higher firm performance. We further find that the presence of women on board is important rather than their number. The outcome of the study shows also that financial expertise of audit committee members has a significant and positive influence on the amount of tax fees. Overall, the results suggest that board characteristics are important and they influence firm performance.

Performance Indicators for Gender Responsive Budgeting david parmenter key performance indicators developing implementing and using winning kpis
Gender responsive budgeting (GRB) is implemented in more than 90 countries in the world as a strategy for gender mainstreaming. GRB entails gender budget analysis which has provided a range of understandings of the different impacts of budgets on women compared to men. The central characteristic of this analysis has been its attempt to systematically recognise the contribution of unpaid care work in socio-economic outcomes. In this context, time use analysis is potentially an important tool for uncovering the gender impacts of budgets. However, there is relatively little research using time use analysis to evaluate the provision of government services. In order to address some of these gaps in our understanding, this book aims to broaden gender budget analysis by developing new indicators of budgetary performance, focusing on the impact of men and women’s unpaid childcare work in Australia using time use analysis. This book will be useful not only for academic researchers but also for professionals working in international development and anyone with an interest in gender issues in public finance.

David Cohen S. The Talent Edge. A Behavioral Approach to Hiring, Developing, and Keeping Top Performers david parmenter key performance indicators developing implementing and using winning kpis
A practical step-by-step approach to hiring the right person. Every hiring manager knows that the traditional hiring and interviewing process is a poor tool for predicting organizational fit and future on-the-job success. Behavioral interviewing can improve your chances of picking the right candidate two to five times over traditional processes. It focuses on how the candidate works rather than on skills, qualifications, and impressions. The Talent Edge shows how you can develop a concrete understanding of what your own top performers do differently than the majority of their peers, and how to translate that knowledge into a better hiring system. While using case studies from organizations that have successfully transformed their hiring practices, the book articulates the business case for a Behavioral Interviewing system, and provides a roadmap for implementing it. Comprehensive coverage includes: how to write job profiles and translate them into questions and answers that can be used in the interview; how to prepare for the interview, ask questions, and probe for the right information. The book also offers advice on how behaviors that are defined and proven to be useful in the hiring process can be incorporated into performance management, career development, and succession planning.

Developping ISO 9001:2000 System by using Object Oriented Database david parmenter key performance indicators developing implementing and using winning kpis
Object oriented database is the third generation of databases. It was a natural result of limitations on relational database and increasing requirements of software and business needs. In this model, developers can represent the real world entity by using objects and can manipulate the data in a high performance. In this book we develop a system to adapt ISO by using electronic technique instead of the manual way. This system is built based on Internet and uses object database to gain the advantages of these techniques, and it avoids the problems that appears with the manual systems such as heavy loads of paperwork. Using object oriented database to represent complex data in ISO system enhances the system performance comparing with relational database. Object data is manipulated by using pointer where in relational database complex data is represented by using more than one table, and it is manipulated by using query of jointed tables. On the other hand, object oriented database by supporting inheritance concept makes the database simpler and makes the system developing faster and easier

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.

CSR and Firm Performance in a Developing Nation david parmenter key performance indicators developing implementing and using winning kpis
So far, there has hardly been any study that looked at the link between level of corporate social responsibility and firm performance in the developing nations. However, with the advent of information technology and raising awareness among the stakeholders in these nations, slowly but surely corporate social responsibility is gaining more and more importance. To my knowledge, this was one of the very few studies conducted on the firms of developing nations that looked at the impact of CSR performance on the ultimate financial performance of the firm. The purpose of this study was to create a stepping stone for future researches on this area. It would bring great joy to me if this humble effort makes some useful contribution to the understanding of the subject matter discussed in this book.

Building environmental assessment system in Slovakia david parmenter key performance indicators developing implementing and using winning kpis
Since previous instances the requirements of environmental, economic and social aspects for all stages of the life cycle of buildings have increased. The criteria of sustainability are included in building environmental assessment systems and tools used in different countries for evaluating the performance of buildings. The purpose of this paper is to introduce the building environmental assessment system (BEAS) which was developed at the Technical University of Kosice. The Slovak system was developed on the basis of existing systems used in many countries. The indicators were proposed according to available information analysis from particular fields of building performance as well as on the basis of our own experimental experiences. Identification of fields and indicators of assessment is processed by confrontation with foreign approach and conformable with the criteria of building sustainability. After fields and indicators were proposed, they were then weighted using the AHP method. The proposed building environmental assessment system has been verified. Consequently a software tool was suggested for simplification of the process for building performance evaluation.

Comparative Performance Assessment of Small-Scale Irrigation Schemes david parmenter key performance indicators developing implementing and using winning kpis
Most irrigation performance assessment studies have focused on internal indicators in which infield water use efficiencies were main target areas. Although such performance assessing parameters require collecting of intensive primary data which is in most cases time consuming and are challenging, their recommendations will be limited to infield water management improvement. IWMI has developed a methodology for assessing production, financial and water supply performances of either small or large scale irrigation schemes. The methodology applies internal and external indicators and requires very few data. The methodology can be applied for comparing different types of irrigation systems at different scales and also to evaluate a single scheme alone. This book attempted to introduce the concept of comparative performance indicators together with some process or internal indicators as a tool to ass two small-scale irrigation schemes of Ethiopia where availability of data is scarce. The outputs are very helpful for farmers, irrigation professionals, designers, researchers and policy makers.
