Investigating the Critical Success Factors for Implementing Electronic Document Management Systems in Governments: Evidence From Jordan
We investigated the critical success factors that affect the implementation of electronic document management systems in government organizations. Based on a comprehensive literature review and input from an expert panel, we composed a list of 37 factors that were considered as prerequisites of successful electronic document management system implementation. We then grouped these 37 factors into six categories. Through a questionnaire survey and factor analysis, we confirmed that the categories identified are important for successful electronic document management system implementation.

The Role of the Internet in Supply Chain Management in Developing Countries: a study of Jordanian Companies Presented at International Science and Technology Conference, 2013, Rome, Italy
Countries around the world have invested in the Internet in order to gain competitive advantage in today’s marketplace. Many companies realize the potential benefits the Internet provides, such as improving the communication and collaboration between them and their suppliers, reducing costs and enhancing customer service. This has enticed different writers, scholars and researchers to evaluate the role of the Internet plays in supply chain management. The main purpose of this research study is dedicated to evaluate the role of the Internet in supply chain management and in particular in the Jordanian companies’ supply chain. Different supply chain components such as purchasing, customer service, transportation, inventory management, vendors relations, order processing and production scheduling are discussed and analyzed separately in this research in order to evaluate how and to what extend the Internet is being used by the Jordanian companies. The result of this research study indicates adequate use of the Internet by some Jordanian companies in some supply chain components. However, further investments in both Internet and IT are required from the Jordanian companies to achieve their business targets.

Developing a Conceptual Model of Factors Affecting Social Media Networking Usage in E-learning At Talal Abu - Ghazaleh University College of Business (TAGUCB) In Bahrain
Social networking has become pervasive in all sectors in the 21st century. The Kingdom of Bahrain is experiencing a big wave in reference to the use of social media networking in the context of a classroom. Indisputably, an innovative learning environment will be provided if this technology is astutely used. Within the e-learning environment, the technology acceptance model (TAM) has been heavily used to examine the acceptance of different types of technologies.
As such, this study aims at discussing the main factors that affect usage of social media networking in e-learning by students and educators at the Talal Abu-Ghazaleh University College of Business (TAGUCB). Based on TAM, a proposed conceptual model of social media usage in e-learning is developed.

“The Hand that Rocks the Cradle Rules the World” This old adage praises motherhood, women in general who have a decisive influence on the future direction of the society as they raise and nurture the future generations to come. It is rightly said where women are worshipped God resides. The paper explores the place of women in society all through the different phases of her life right from the womb to the tomb. It speaks about the recognition of women and their place in the society in the past, present and how changes are evolving; reformations are taking place to build a better future. This is essential to establish a universal imperative of equality for women who are the anchors not only of the smaller unit „family‟ but also the entire society. The paper critically analyses the role of women, the injustice done to them, the bias system made by the male dominated world and suggests the methods of bringing about change through realisation. It highlights the injustice done to women and how to bring about change in our Indian Society.
