Deployment is a costly and intricate process that requires specific success factors. Previous research focused on management, overlooking user perspectives. The study uses a quantitative methodology to <br />gather data from 300 employees in private Higher Education Institutions, focusing on user perspectives rather than <br />management. Non-probability convenience sampling was employed to obtain cross-sectional data. The successful <br />implementation of an ERP system requires top management endorsement, functional assistance, a reliable partner, <br />comprehensive training, active user engagement, a proficient ERP team, robust MIS department, meticulous planning, <br />organizational support, effective change management, well established IT infrastructure, superior ERP software selection, <br />and a deep understanding of the ERP concept. Critical success factors significantly impact ERP implementation success in <br />developing countries. Organizations should consider financial, employee, application, technical, and vendor capabilities when selecting an ERP system, providing valuable insights for policymakers.</p> 2024-05-29T00:00:00+03:00 Copyright (c) 2024 International Journal of Business and Management Sciences Assessing the Influence of Change Management Determinants on Project Performance Moderated by Project Communication: A Study in Pakistan’s IT Industry 2024-04-21T10:34:46+03:00 Mobeen ur Rehman Shahid Iqbal Syed Shahrose <p>The current research attempts to investigate how the determinants of change management disease performance in the context of Pakistan’s information technology.

We <br />concentrate on how task engagement, creative climate, and authentic leadership interact and affect innovative performance. It is anticipated that genuine leadership creates an atmosphere at work that inspires employees to give their best at work. Consequently, this increased engagement will result in better inventive performance. Employee data from telecommunication sector was gathered to investigate these links. Descriptive statistics were analyzed using SPSS software and structural equation modelling was made easier with AMOS. The expected results seek to shed light on how employee engagement and leadership styles can be strategically utilized to foster an innovative culture in the telecom <br />sector—a business that is notorious for its persistent need for adaptability. We argue that task engagement and employee <br />invention are positively correlated and that this correlation is amplified when an organization fosters creativity. <br />In addition to providing insightful information about the role that real leadership plays in encouraging employee creativity, this study gives telecom companies a tactical framework for developing a workforce full of innovative problem-solvers. Businesses in the telecommunication industry can enable their staff to become the engine of ongoing innovation by providing an atmosphere that encourages openness, self-awareness, shared values, and a positive,creative work environment. </p> 2024-06-03T00:00:00+03:00 Copyright (c) 2024 International Journal of Business and Management Sciences Investigation of how Gender Moderates and Overall, Justice Mediates the Impact of Abusive Supervision on Knowledge Hiding 2024-06-04T09:56:21+03:00 Umair Tufail Sohail Anwar Harris Ali Waseem Zeeshan Ahmad <p>The research aimed to explore the influence of abusive supervision on knowledge hiding, considering the concept of <br />overall justice within the framework of social exchange theory. Additionally, employing a moderated mediation model, we <br />investigated the role of gender as a moderator in the connection between abusive supervision and knowledge hiding mediated by overall justice, grounded in social role theory. The data was collected from the participants through likert questionnaire. Smart-PLS software was employed to conduct data analysis. The results, based on a sample of 351 participants from private sector universities in Pakistan, revealed that abusive supervision negatively impacts overall justice. However, the effects of overall justice on knowledge hiding and its mediation between abusive supervision and knowledge hiding were not statistically significant. Nevertheless, abusive supervision's impact on knowledge hiding via overall justice was significant among males but not females. This research contributes valuable insights to the understanding of how individuals of different genders respond to abusive supervision in their pursuit of fairness, thus enriching the literature on knowledge hiding.</p> 2024-06-28T00:00:00+03:00 Copyright (c) 2024 International Journal of Business and Management Sciences The Confluence of Islamic, Artificial, and Emotional Intelligence: Evaluating the Interplay of Various Facets of Intelligence and Their Impact on Workplace Dynamics 2024-04-21T11:20:53+03:00 Muhammad Aqib Ali Sara Shabbir Usman Khalid <p>The research paper evaluates the various facets of intelligence including Islamic (spiritual) intelligence (SI), artificial intelligence (AI), and emotional intelligence (EI).
