Project Communication and Perceived Project Performance:
The Mediating Influence of Individual Commitment
in Uganda’s Citizenship Projects
This paper examines the mediating influence of individual commitment on the relationship between project communication and perceived project performance. Many citizenship projects frequently fail to deliver on time, budget, specifications, and quality or do not deliver value to the public. This could be attributed to ineffective project communication and lack of individual commitment. Despite previous research contributions, no existing studies have investigated the mediating influence of individual commitment on this relationship. Thus, empirical research to corroborate these claims in this area remains anecdotal
and scanty. Based on a cross sectional data set from 322 citizenship project stakeholders in Uganda used to validate the theoretical model, findings reveal that individual commitment elements (affectivity, normative and continuance) significantly mediate the relationship
between project communication and perceived project performance. The results also suggest that affectivity and normative commitment have 2 Arthur Ahimbisibwe; Sudi Nangoli and Wilson Tusiime ORSEA Journal a stronger influence towards perceived project performance than
continuance commitment. Theoretical and practical implications are also discussed.
Vol 2, No 1 (2012): Analysing Monthly Bulk Electricity Sold by Uganda Electricity Transmission Company Limited Using ARIMA Model
The purpose of this study was to identify the main characteristics in the trends of the monthly sales, analyse the sales using simple linear regression and Auto Regressive Integrated Moving Average (ARIMA)
models to determine a good fit estimate model, which was thereafter evaluated in an interactive analysis. The study used Eviews 3.1 econometric package covering the period February 2006 to July 2011.
It revealed a general upward trend in sales with variations from one month to another without any recognisable seasonality. A simple linear regression estimate model was found to be unsuitable for representing the sales since most actual values were outside one standard confidence
limits of the estimated model. However, using the ARIMA model estimate and analysis through identifying and carrying out predictive and diagnostic tests, a good fit was ARIMA(1,1,0), represented by the equation Ye = 0.9675 + Y(t-1) - 0.6004Y(t-1) + 0.6004Y(t-2) showing that its estimate depended mainly on the last two most recent lag monthly sales after first order differencing. Furthermore, an evaluation forecast showed that the actual sales fitted in the one standard confidence limits 2 Freddie Festo Mawanga ORSEA Journal of the model, thus confirming that the model could be used for forecasting sales beyond July 2011.
This study provides managers of UETC with a practical and yet simple tool to describe, explain, intervene in and orecast monthly electricity sales that are required by management for planning.
