What makes some local governments thrive while others fall short of answerability? What factors promote or hinder local accountability? To find answers to these questions, the study employs Principal Agent model, where citizens are principals and local government leaders, their agents. The major theoretical argument is: citizen awareness; local government capacity and political history affect accountability. Adopting a comparative case study methodology, primary data was collected using in-depth interview of 12 respondents; supplemented with observation and document review. The major methodological challenge is operationalization of accountability, as few empirical studies have been conducted on the accountability. Findings of the study indicate that besides communication mechanism, capacity of internal audit department and leadership, informal accountability greatly influences variation in local accountability. Therefore we recommend an empirical study focusing on informal accountability in developing country context, which would enrich the literature.

As a break from the past where organizations employed most of its personnel on a permanent basis, there have been a sharp rise in the use of short-term employment contracts within the Kenyan banking industry in the recent past. The main objective of this study was to investigate the factors that had contributed to the increased use of short-term employment contracts in the banking industry in Kenya. The specific focus of this study was to investigate the cost implication of short-term contracts, and determine the influence of workload fluctuations, business uncertainty and employee screening practices on the increased use of short-term contracts. The study was a census of all the registered 45 banking institution in Kenya. It was found that the main motives for hiring employees on short-term basis were related with matching staff to peak workload demands, saving on wage costs, having personnel for unusual working hours, covering staff absences (both long term and short term), and screening employees before giving them permanent jobs. The study concluded that the main factor contributing to increased use of short-term employments contracts is because these contracts are effective
Longitudinal data on 11 pre-selected variables of child growth was collected during the period of 25 May to 17 December, 2002 for a group of children from birth to 48 months of age from the study area. The study started with 296 children. There was about 38% loss of the study children during the 4 years of study. Finally, we have 169 children. Details of data collection and the underlying problems are given in Chapters 3 and 4. Chapter 5 of this work is a contributory one which contains findings of the study. Fourteen tables and 14 charts are appended in this chapter. These tables and charts explain the growth patterns of children in study area. Chapter 6 is the concluding remarks where major findings, short coming of the study and scope for further research, specially the impact of varying sample size, socio-economic, environmental, nutritional variables, seasonality of birth, reproductive health and the impact of morbidity etc may be studied.
This book examines gender aspects at the information and communication technology sectors in Egypt, taking a case study approach that focuses on female employees' involvement in training and developing activities for skill and capacity building. Training activities reveal the gap between the ICT employees as female employees in the case study hold administrative positions, while their male colleagues were allowed more technical and expensive training opportunities. The study ultimately reveals the heavy daily work demands on female employees which hinder their career growth potentials.

This book focuses the influence of marketing strategy on personal financing among the teachers with offered by Bank X based on research of the case study. The personal financing that was mentioned above is a Personal Financing-I which based on the current situation there were lots of interests about the Personal Financing-I from the customers especially teachers regarding as a government servant. So, the main reason why this case study was conducted is to determine whether the influences of marketing strategy on Personal Financing-I among the teachers are significant acceptable or not. The book is to determine the influence of marketing strategy on Personal Financing-I which focused on the marketing mix in determining the marketing activities for an organization. The marketing strategy consists that was recognized and suggested by Kotler and Amstrong are 4P’s, which are namely product, price, promotion and place. But this case study used 3P’s that were suitable with the topic which are product, price, and promotion. So, from this case study wants to identify whether these 3P’s of marketing strategy have a relationship with the teachers are influence to apply Personal Financing-I.
The main objective of this study is to explore the practice of teachers and students in using short stories to teach and learn reading skills. The subject of the study was Atse Naod secondary school students and teachers. They were selected using simple random sampling. The findings indicated that the majority of the students were aware of their roles in using short stories but they had little awareness towards their teachers’ role. In addition, some students were not exerting efforts to improve their English language reading skills through short stories. The study also revealed some problems that hold back students effort to use short stories: lack of Basic English skills, lack of confidence in using short stories and linguistic difficulty. In light of these findings, it is recommended that teachers are encouraged to use short stories to develop learners’ reading skills by integrating all skills and incorporating practical lessons into their teaching-learning process. Besides, the school communities have to allocating sufficient short story books and encouraging students to read short stories for fostering learner reading skills development.
