Prior entrepreneurship studies have extensively examined organizational adaptability, but organization resilience and digital transformation among Kerala startups have gotten comparatively little attention. The goal of the current study is to determine how business resilience and digital transformation affect Kerala startups' organizational adaptability. To examine the causal links between variables, this study adopted a quantitative research methodology. The research approach was evaluated using a survey-based questionnaire, and 310 startup founders were selected at random for the sample. The Kerala Startup Mission Portal is used to extract information on startups in Kerala. CBSEM (covariance-based structural equation modeling) methods were used to analyze the survey data that was gathered. The results of the study indicate that the degree of digital intensity and the degree of transformation management intensity have a substantial impact on how adaptive startups are. The study also found that business resilience serves as a partial mediator between organizational performance, digital intensity, and transformation management intensity. The study has a wide range of practical implications. To improve their startup's potential for resilience and adaptation, it first suggests to founders that they switch to digital platforms. To ensure the success of their new ventures, businesses choose and create teams with essential internal capabilities.</p> Paramba Jumana Nalakam, Salamzadeh Aidin, Yasin Naveed, Hiroko Kawamorita Copyright (c) 2024 Fri, 28 Jun 2024 00:00:00 +0200 IMPACT OF BANGABANDHU’S AGRICULTURAL DEVELOPMENT PHILOSOPHY ON FOOD SECURITY IN BANGLADESH <p>Bangabandhu’s vision was clear, challenging and realitybased. He decorated the agricultural policies based on the farmers and their economic conditions. The leader put special importance on practising integrated agriculture. This paper aims to synthesize the agriculture and food security policy in terms of Bangabondhu’s development philosophy. The study has followed survey research with the qualitative and quantitative analytical techniques approach. The Charland area in Mymensingh district has selected 300 farm households with 60 women through a random sample technique. Average yearly income was 264000 tk, 167000 tk and 189000 tk respectively cereal crop, vegetables and poultry rearing activities. Crop producer average income was higher among all groups. The findings show that about 53% of female-headed households adopt and use more indigenous implements in land preparation compared to 28 % of male-headed households. It is also revealed that male-headed households are the greater adopters and users of newly adopted equipment in land preparation 55% of male and 36% of female-headed households do the same. Household dietary diversity score of these three groups are cereal crop producers 8.86, vegetable producers 8.54 and poultry rearing 9.15. The family size of the household has a positive coefficient is 0.16 and is highly significant and the experience with modern technology of respondents has a positive coefficient of 0.492 and is highly significant. The data revealed that 67 per cent of respondents noticed soil quality is deteriorating due to modern technology although more food is produced, 88 per cent agreed with the statement that efficiency in production increases remarkably. Regarding women in the agriculture sector of the study area, the perception index scores indicate that women play a vital role in agriculture as 3rd statement has scored 252 and is ranked 3rd among all statements. Apart from this a large number of respondents positively agreed on having permission from their husbands to get engaged as economically active participants in agriculture as 2nd statement has scored 225 and is ranked 6th among all statements. To enhance technology adoption by farmers, policymakers and developers of new technology need to understand farmers' need as well as their ability to adopt technology. Various problems such as insufficient capital, lack of profit, inadequate training facilities, lack of adequate farm machinery etc. problems are faced by the respondents in those areas. These problems are barriers to the attainment of women's empowerment and food security.</p> Shajahan Kabir, Mirjana Radović Marković, Dušan Marković Copyright (c) 2024 Fri, 28 Jun 2024 00:00:00 +0200 ADAPTING & MITIGATING EMPLOYEE RESISTANCE TO CHANGE: CONTRASTING ADKAR AND KURT LEWIN’S THREE STEPS CHANGE MODEL <p>In the era of organizational change, it is crucial to comprehend how employees react to change and how to overcome individual resistance to change.

It is a map of how things get done in an organization. Culture can either positively show the core values of an organization or uncover bad behaviors and practices. Companies, like Chrysler, provide an example of how culture within a company can have a large impact on not only the morale of employees, but also on profit. Other companies show examples of culture based in collaboration, as well as culture based in customer service. There are many important reasons that company culture is important. These can include, but are not limited to, defining company identity, transforming employees into advocates for the culture, boosting employee wellbeing, and most importantly living up to the core values of the company. In situations where the employees and culture in the organization are resilient, this manifests itself in reduced stress levels. Also, performance increases and conflict are resolved more easily.</p> Michelle Dorio Copyright (c) 2024 Fri, 28 Jun 2024 00:00:00 +0200
