CONCEPTUAL REVIEW 2023-02-21T08:11:47+00:00 Nasser Saif Al Busaidi Abul Bashar Bhuiyan Norhayah Zulkifli <p style="text-align: justify;"><em>The main purpose is to review the empirical evidence and summarize the marketing capabilities' mediating effects on the adoption of ICTs and business performance of the Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) in Oman and develop a conceptual framework. Data were collected from the existing literature from different online sources. The study review findings revealed a significant gap in the literature regarding the full understanding of the simultaneous relationship among ICTs, marketing innovation, and business performance in SMEs. Most studies have concentrated on analyzing and discussing only one or two of these phenomena at a time. However, the other studies that have examined the simultaneous relationship among the three variables mentioned above have generally ignored the component of marketing capabilities, focusing instead on the idea of innovation in its broader sense. The present study findings also establish a lack of or insufficient empirical studies that broadly examine the contribution of ICTs adoption among SMEs and its effect on companies’ capabilities, such as marketing capabilities, and consequently its effect on business performance, especially in developing countries. Therefore, the present study is motivated to develop a conceptual framework for measuring the mediating effect of the marketing capabilities, ICTs adoption and business performance of SMEs in Oman one of the developing countries.</em></p> <p><strong>JEL Classification Codes:</strong> M31.&nbsp; </p> 2022-12-30T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Nasser Saif Al Busaidi , Abul Bashar Bhuiyan , Norhayah Zulkifli ASSESSMENT OF MICRO INSURANCE AS AN EMERGING MICROFINANCE FOR THE POOR: A STUDY ON SOMALIA 2023-02-21T09:02:07+00:00 Md Al-Imran Md Salim Chowdhury Abdikhaliq Dahir Ayanle Abdullah Al Masum <p style="text-align: justify;"><em>This research aims to determine whether microinsurance could take the role of conventional microfinance for the underprivileged in Somalia. The current situation of micro-insurance in Somalia is examined in this study, along with the difficulties encountered and the potential for development. The study also investigates how the poor view micro-insurance and whether they are willing to use this financial tool. The outcomes of this paper will aid in shaping future micro-insurance programs that are more successful by shedding light on the viability of using it to help Somalia's poor gain financial inclusion. The study examined how micro-insurance affects the poor's access to the financial system and risk management skills.&nbsp; The non-probabilistic sampling method is used to conduct the study, including a literature review, stakeholder interviews, and surveys of clients. The results of this study will help researchers better understand how microinsurance may be used in Somalia to promote financial inclusion and fight poverty. The findings will also help policymakers and practitioners to figure out the best strategy for utilizing micro insurance’s potential to lessen poverty and encourage financial inclusion among the underprivileged in Somalia.</em></p> <p><strong>JEL Classification Codes: </strong>G21, G22. &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; </p> 2022-12-30T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Md Al-Imran , Md Salim Chowdhury , Abdikhaliq Dahir Ayanle , Abdullah Al Masum PRIORITIZATION AND IDENTIFICATION OF FACTORS AFFECTING BANK EMPLOYEES RETENTION AND ITS INFLUENCE ON PRODUCTIVITY: A CONCEPTUAL FRAMEWORK 2023-03-03T17:56:31+00:00 Fatema Tuj Johra Tania Sakib Uddin Kowser <p style="text-align: justify;"><em>Employee retention is vital for every organization, especially in the banking sector, for a nation's growing economy.
