Abstract

This study seeks to validate the influence of corporate governance on organizational performance of networking equipment companies listed in Taiwan, with cloud technology involvement as the moderator. Interviews are conducted with managers and above in these companies. This paper adopts simple random sampling and constructs a structural equation model (SEM) to verify the goodness-of-fit of the overall model, the structural model and the measurement model. The research findings suggest that cloud technology involvement has significant and positive moderating or interactive effects regarding the impact of corporate governance on organizational performance of networking equipment companies listed in Taiwan. This implies that corporate governance and cloud technology involvement have positive and synergetic influence on the organizational performance of networking equipment companies listed in Taiwan. This also helps to achieve the goal of efficient and intelligent cloud.

Abstract

An online faculty development program was examined for its effectiveness on teacher satisfaction and technology integration knowledge achievement. An e-learning readiness and a satisfaction survey were administered to 13 teachers who used the online training module in Modular Object-Oriented Dynamic Learning Environment (MOODLE). The results showed that the participants were ready for e-learning and were satisfied with the online faculty development program, especially the basic education participants. Significant difference was observed in the satisfaction ratings for the online training as compared to face-to-face mode of delivery. Highly significant gains in the achievement were also observed between pre-test and post-test scores of the participants. It is recommended that the audibility for some of the video lectures be further improved. Additional online faculty development programs can also be developed on other technology-based topics.

Abstract

This paper endeavors to explore the effects of organizational changes and system reforms on operating performance in a semiconductor company listed in Taiwan. This paper conducts convenience sampling on the entry-level employees and supervisors (managers and above) in this company. The statistical technique employed is ANCOVA with two independent variables, one dependent variable and one covariate. The results indicate that (1) system reforms and organizational changes have significant and intervening influence on operating performances; (2) in all the three reform systems, the strengthening of corporate governance has greater influence than cultural innovations on operating performances post reforms; (3) as far as corporate governance strengthening as a system reform is concerned, the reforms in management systems (Method 1) have a greater impact on operating performances post reforms than reforms in accounting system (Method 2) and establishment of internal audit systems (Method 3). Under the consideration of cultural innovations, the reforms in management governance (Method 1) have a greater impact on operating performances than reforms in accounting systems (Method 2). Meanwhile, with the improvement of corporate governance, the reforms in accounting systems (Method 2) have a greater impact on operating performances than establishment of internal audit systems (Method 3). The findings can serve as a template for the management of the listed semiconductor companies in Taiwan.
