The intricate interplay between AI integration, team proficiency in AI, organizational support for AI technologies, and PME forms the crux of this investigation. The theoretical underpinning of this research has been rooted in the Resource-Based View (RBV) theory. Data for this study have been collected through a structured questionnaire survey, targeting a diverse group comprising project managers, IT managers, senior executives, and other key personnel engaged in AI-driven decision support systems. The research has revealed significant positive correlations between the integration of AI, team proficiency in AI, organizational support for these technologies, and PME. These findings highlight the crucial role these elements play in enhancing project outcomes. This study, by uncovering these relationships, offers valuable insights for organizations aiming to optimize their project management practices, especially in emerging economies like Pakistan. It contributes to the existing body of knowledge by providing a nuanced understanding of how AI integration can be leveraged to enhance project management efficiency. Furthermore, the study discusses broader implications for policy and suggests directions for future research, emphasizing the strategic importance of nurturing AI competencies and fostering organizational support for AI technologies to realize enhanced project management outcomes.</p> </td> </tr> </tbody> </table> Aasim Munir Dad, Abdur Rahman Khan, Asif Jamal Copyright (c) 2024 THE ASIAN BULLETIN OF GREEN MANAGEMENT AND CIRCULAR ECONOMY Thu, 25 Jan 2024 00:00:00 +0000 Political Stability and Performance of Financial Institutions in Pakistan <table width="630"> <tbody> <tr> <td width="426"> <p>The purpose of the present study is to analyze the impact of political stability on the performance of financial Institutions in Pakistan. This is the first study in the context of Pakistan that analyzes the performance of financial institutions during the period of political stability. The study's sample period was from 2008 to 2017 because, for the first time in Pakistan, two pure political governments completed their electoral term since the country's independence in 1947. The data is collected from the balance sheet analysis provided by the State Bank of Pakistan on its official website. For the data analysis, the study used the CAMEL analysis technique. The CAMEL analysis technique was also used by the IMF in 2020 to analyze the performance of underdeveloped and developing countries of the world. The results show that the performance of locally owned financial institutions (MCB Bank, United Bank Limited, and Allied Bank) in Pakistan increased during this period. Still, foreign-owned bank's performance is not good even if they cannot fulfill the minimum requirement established by the State Bank of Pakistan. The results contribute to the efficiency theory of financial institutions. Further, the study suggests that the researchers can test the significance of the results by changing sectors to confirm, modify, accept, or reject the results.</p> </td> </tr> </tbody> </table> Muhammad Usman, Shoukat Ali, Waseef ul Hassan, Muhammad Irfan, ayyaz Nadeem, Shoaib Aslam Copyright (c) 2024 THE ASIAN BULLETIN OF GREEN MANAGEMENT AND CIRCULAR ECONOMY Fri, 09 Feb 2024 00:00:00 +0000 Evaluating the Financial Feasibility of Renewable Energy Integration in Construction Sector <p>This important study details how economically viable renewable energy systems are in building and construction. The document begins with an intriguing discussion of renewable energy's role in sustainable development and environmental protection. For this article, a thorough literature review examines theoretical frameworks and financial analysis methods that support adding renewable energy systems to construction projects.This study examines many scholarly journals, industry reports, and conference papers using a qualitative secondary research design and the new Onion Framework. Using ideas, real-world data, financial evaluations, and case studies, layered analysis can reveal complex details about renewable energy systems' building industry profitability. A full comparison is in "Results." This section includes numbers and case studies that demonstrate the financial importance of switching to renewable energy. Show how upfront costs, payback periods, IRR, and comparative cost analyses differ between traditional and renewable energy systems using tables and figures. This research is combined with others in the discussion to explain how renewable energy systems affect construction costs. In addition to economic benefits, it suggests more research on regional differences and policy changes. This study suggests renewable energy systems in construction could be profitable. Although these systems require different initial investments, they may be cost-effective over time. It shows how important renewable energy strategy is for financially and environmentally sustainable building.</p> Nijah Akram , Palwasha Farooq, Muti Ul Haq , Muhammad Nabeel, Fahad Asghar Copyright (c) 2024 THE ASIAN BULLETIN OF GREEN MANAGEMENT AND CIRCULAR ECONOMY Mon, 22 Jan 2024 00:00:00 +0000
