Over 80 % of organizational change efforts fail, management literature says. No wonder, as change is continuous and difficult, if not impossible, to manage. This book reports on an empirical research into 9 organizations, at the early stages of a merger. Organizational storytelling is used as an interactive intervention showing how lived and co-constructed stories mobilize people for change efforts. It addresses the temporal aspects of intentional change efforts, offering a much better chance of success than attempting to manage organizational change in a linear fashion. Experience how stories create cultural embedding through a common language in the 9 organizations, leaving management one step behind the change they, themselves, initiated.

Tourism destinations face various challenges in the implementation of m-technologies and although mobile applications are used by some destinations, many are in their early stages of development. Few destinations have yet managed to develop credible mobile services. In particular, small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), which are the backbone of the tourism industry, have struggled to embrace new technologies, e.g. e-commerce applications, which has prevented them from benefiting from new technologies. It is unclear which business model will emerge to make mobile services viable. This study aims to explore the way that tourism destinations deal with these issues and will develop a mobile information model integrated with a mobile destination coding system to help tourism stakeholders optimise their exploitation of m-technologies. The major contribution of this research is Tourism Mobile Information Coding System (TMICS) - a mobile coding information system which aims to provide tourists with destination information through their mobile phones. It is anticipated that the new system will enhance tourism destination stakeholders marketing efforts.
Human resources for health shortages have reached epic proportions worldwide. Africa has the largest share of these shortages. The scarcity is compounded among other factors by mal-distribution and erosion of skilled health workforce. Developing countries struggle to produce, recruit and most importantly retain skilled health workers. There exists a perpetual poor retention cycle in many developing countries. This has a negative bearing on the effort to attain universal access to health care. A myriad of factors affect retention of skilled health workers in developing countries and these factors are examined at length in this book. Appropriate strategies to improve attraction and retention of health workers can only be devised with a vivid understanding of the factors that influence the decision by health workers to join and stay in the sector. This book will be of importance to researchers in the field of Human Resources for Health and Human Resources practitioners.
The major point in effective human resource utilization is ensuring a clear link between the tasks and activities that employees are involved in, and the achievement of organizational goals. Making the right decision/plan in appraising the performance of employees require identifying the employees' strength and areas for improvement or developmental needs. Accordingly to appraise the performance of employees effectively, performance problems must be spotted, constructive feedback should be provided, and actions to improve performance must be measured. In that regard employee participation in preparing and actualizing performance plan establishes the basis of performance appraisal. Hence forth the purpose of performance appraisal is to decide the aspect of performance that has to be evaluated. Therefore, a strong attachment between employee's personal objectives and organizational goals must prevail so that the result could be efficient and effective. Performance appraisal system or its elements demonstrated effective elsewhere should be examined in the light of the specific needs of the organization. It needs to be designed to fit the specific requirements of the organization.
It is widely believed that for managers of organizations to perform effectively, they require personal and task-specific skills widely referred to as managerial competencies. Globally, Health Care Management is moving towards management of Integrated Health Care Systems which require health workers to have appropriate managerial competencies. Studies in health care management have revealed a lack of competent management particularly in developing countries. A WHO report highlights that a lack of managerial competencies by health workers was a major reason why many least developed countries will not meet the United Nations health related Millennium Development Goals. Sierra Leone is implementing a Free Health Care Initiative through its public health care system and the focus of this study is to determine if health workers have the right managerial competencies to implement this initiative by identifying the managerial competencies and competency gaps based on 39 managerial competencies derived from a similar study in South Africa. This book will be useful to Health Care Managers, Policy Planners, Human Resource Managers, medical and nursing schools.
