          Abstract

          This research study examined Project Planning Practices and Project Performance: A Case Study of King Faisal Maternity Ward Project by Real Contractors Ltd Company in Gasabo District, Rwanda. The study aims to achieve three specific objectives: first, to assess the effect of scope planning on the performance of King Faisal Maternity ward Project in Gasabo district and determine the effect of risk planning on the performance of King Faisal Maternity ward Project in Gasabo district. The population of this study included staff in different departments of Real Contractors Ltd Companyof King Faisal Maternity Ward in Gasabo District. The data collected was analyzed using frequencies, means, and standard deviations and inferential statistics and the statistical package for social sciences (SPSS) version 22.0 was used for data analysis. The coefficient R of 0.815 indicated a strong positive correlation between project planning practices and project performance. The R-squared of 0.665 indicated that, approximately 66.5% of the variation in project performance can be explained by the predictors of risk planning and scope planning. Thus, the regression model using the predictors (scope planning and risk planning) showed a strong positive relationship with King Faisal Maternity Ward Project Implementation performance in Gasabo District. The unstandardized coefficient of β =0.620 indicated that one-unit increase in King Faisal Maternity Ward Project Implementation performance in Gasabo District is associated with 0.620 increase in scope planning. Similarly, the unstandardized coefficient of β= 0.255 indicated that one-unit increase in King Faisal Maternity Ward Project Implementation performance in Gasabo District is associated with 0.255 increase in risk planning. Both the p-values, 0.006< 0.05 and 0.000<0.05 indicated that these relationships are statistically significant. The study recommended prioritizing comprehensive scope and risk planning, ongoing training for project teams, and investing in project managers’ capacity building for effective project outcomes.

          Sustainability as a “New Normal” for Modern Businesses: Are SMEs of Pakistan Ready to Adopt It?

          While in developed countries, the concept of sustainability is being recognized as a “new normal” for modern businesses, the situation is entirely different in the context of developing and underdeveloped regions of the world. Shockingly, most of the developing nations do not consider the environmental dimension of CSR as their priority, and this is one of the reasons that the issue of climate change is a hot topic of debate among contemporary researchers and policymakers from developing economies. The present study aims to explore the type and level of CSR engagement among different organizations of the SME sector in Pakistan. Further, the study also intends to uncover any potential difference between medium-sized enterprises and small-sized enterprises in terms of their CSR preferences and engagements. The study uses a qualitative approach in order to get deeper insights to meet study objectives through in-depth semi-structured interviews. In this regard, the data were collected from nine SMEs belonging to different sectors in Lahore city of Pakistan. The authors used thematic analysis in order to analyze in-depth interviews, and three main themes were extracted, including social CSR, economic CSR, and environmental CSR. The results revealed that most of the medium-sized enterprises prefer the social dimension of CSR, whereas small-sized enterprises are largely concerned with the economic dimension of CSR. It has also been revealed that the environmental dimension of CSR is non-existent in the case of small-sized enterprises. The results of the present study will help policymakers to better understand the phenomenon of CSR and to rethink their CSR policies for a better and sustainable future.
