The Factors Contributing to Effective Team Building: A Case Study of the UK North Sea Oil & Gas Drilling Rig Environment

Oil and Gas has been produced from UK reservoirs since 1967, and although the industry is past its peak, it remains an important contributor to the UK economy (Green & Keogh, 2000). UK Continental Shelf (UKCS) Production Efficiency (PE) and Well Delivery (WD) productive time is at 80%. This reflects continuing efforts by industry to improve operational efficiencies (Oil & Gas Authority, 2020). The 20% operational inefficiency in the UKCS is lost time and cost which could be invested to accelerate the energy transition to reliable renewable options that can be added into the energy mix. The HS&E Report (2022) notes that improvements in human performance and data sharing are important to tackle these inefficiencies.

Dr. Dirk Jonker Graduates The PhD Program In Entrepreneurship

Youth unemployment may pose the biggest future challenge to the alleviation of poverty. Oluwatayo & Ojo (2018) attribute the high African youth unemployment rate to inequality, exclusive economic growth, and youth marginalisation. The South African formal youth unemployment rate is reported to be at 55.2%, while the estimated youth underemployment rate is closer to 65% and, in some regions, 80% (Herrington & Kew, 2018; Trandingeconomics.com, 2019c). Despite the potential of entrepreneurship as a solution, there appears to be a paucity of knowledge regarding the essential components necessary to foster an effective entrepreneurial transition for teenagers.

The Role of Internal Audit on the Governance of Regulated Tier 4 Microfinance Institutions in Uganda 

The Ugandan financial sector comprises non-deposit-taking microfinance institutions and deposit-taking institutions. Microfinance institutions provide financial assistance to the underprivileged worldwide to finance their small businesses. According to Ssekiziyivu et al. (2018), microfinance institutions in Uganda are essential in providing loans to support small and medium-sized firms that employ a large portion of the country’s workforce. Most microfinance institutions are non- deposit-taking microfinance institutions which lend to the majority of the small and medium-sized firms that contribute 20% of the gross domestic product and employ more than 60% of the labour force.

Regional Innovation System Resilience in Developing Countries: A Case Study Of Ukraine

A resilient region is seen as one that continues to prosper and maintain economic stability in the face of inevitable shocks and disruptions that occur over time (Christopherson et al., 2010, p. 134). The ability to adapt to changing circumstances and seize new opportunities, leading to increased innovation and competitive advantage, make such regions more attractive to businesses and investors by providing a stable environment in which to invest and grow.
