Abstract

Purpose

This paper aims to explore the ubiquitous role of the smartphone in expanding entrepreneurial opportunity among women in emerging Asia. This study attempted to explore the hidden issues behind increased innovative entrepreneurial tendency.

Design/methodology/approach

This study used a mixed research methodology. First, prior research based on different aspects of entrepreneurial tendency was reviewed in a systematic way. Second, a person-administered survey was conducted based on 265 women who are involved in entrepreneurial activities in different regions in Asia. Structural equation modeling (Amos) is used to analyze the person-administered survey.

Findings

Results show a significant relationship among the independent and dependent variables of the study which indicates a significant entrepreneurship opportunity for women in emerging Asia.

Research limitations/implications

This study was conducted with a limited number of entrepreneurs from a few Asian countries which may affect the generalizability of the result.

Originality/value

This study fulfills the gap in the current literature by analyzing innovativeness in entrepreneurship with the usage of smartphones and increased tendency among women to conduct business.

Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this study is to empirically examine the determinants and outcomes of Islamic corporate social responsibility (ICSR) adoption in Islamic bank branches in Pakistan. The research framework examines the influence of stakeholder’s pressure on ICSR adoption. It also analyses the relationship between ICSR adoption and intangible outcomes achieved by the Islamic bank branch.

Design/methodology/approach

A total of 400 questionnaires were distributed through a mail survey to Islamic bank branches in Pakistan. The respondents of the study were the branch manager of Islamic bank branches in Pakistan. A simple random sampling technique was used and resulted in the collection of 293 usable questionnaires. SMART PLS was used to statistically analyse the data using partial least squares structural equation modelling approach. The measurement and structural models were analysed.

Findings

The results indicate a significant and positive relationship between Shariah supervisory board pressure, competitor pressure and ICSR adoption in Islamic bank branches. A moderate strength positive relationship was found out between top management pressure and ICSR adoption. Results reveal that customer pressure and community pressure have an insignificant influence on ICSR adoption. Data analysis shows that the adoption of ICSR practices have a significant and positive influence on an Islamic bank branch’s Intangible outcomes.

Research limitations/implications

The sample size was relatively small because of the limited time duration.

Originality/value

The construct of ICSR has not been extensively researched upon especially through empirical studies. Limited research exists in the area of factors than can influence Islamic bank branches to adopt ICSR practices and currently no empirical research has focussed on the intangible outcomes that can be achieved through ICSR adoption by an Islamic bank branch. The limited study exists in the Pakistan context as well, which is a rapidly growing Islamic banking industry.

Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of the food traceability is used to retain the good quality of raw material supply, diminish the loss and reduced system complexity.

Design/methodology/approach

The proposed hybrid algorithm is for food traceability to make accurate predictions and enhanced period data. The operation of the internet of things is addressed to track and trace the food quality to check the data acquired from manufacturers and consumers.

Findings

In order to survive with the existing financial circumstances and the development of global food supply chain, the authors propose efficient food traceability techniques using the internet of things and obtain a solution for data prediction.

Originality/value

The operation of the internet of things is addressed to track and trace the food quality to check the data acquired from manufacturers and consumers. The experimental analysis depicts that proposed algorithm has high accuracy rate, less execution time and error rate.
