  This study filled a gap in existing knowledge regarding the impact of teamwork quality on New Product Development (NPD) cycle in the telecommunication industry in Saudi Arabia. This study analyzed the direct and indirect relationships between teamwork qualities; internal market orientation, environmental turbulence and NPD cycle time, while path coefficient and assessment of measurement and structural model used to test the research hypotheses. The aim of this study was to obtain the relationship between teamwork quality and new product development cycle time in telecom industry. Random sampling was used to select respondents for a survey for this study. Findings indicated that five out of six teamwork quality factors had significant effects on NPD cycle time but not on communication among teamwork members. Internal market orientation was found to affect positively NPD cycle time. Internal market orientation fully mediated the relationship between balance of member contribution and mutual support and NPD cycle time. Environmental turbulence moderated the relationship between two factors of teamwork quality, namely, communication and coordination and NPD cycle time. Environmental turbulence did not moderate balance of member contribution, mutual support, effort and cohesion.

  Tourism sector is one of the main sources of carbon emission. The transportation used in tourism is the major contributor when considering all the factors in the tourism industry for energy consumption and carbon emission. Malaysia emphasizes ecotourism for tourism development. There are 42 recreational forest areas situated in East Coast Economic Region (ECER) of Malaysia. The aim of this study was to measure the carbon emissions from Sekayu recreational forest in Terengganu by tourists. The study highlights the considerable issues and policies of carbon emissions in the forest by ecotourism activities. The study considers only the carbon emissions from transportation sector. Local tourists’ vehicles have been used to measure carbon emissions. The study shows that carbon emissions from buses and motorcycles are lower than those of small car (compact-size) and big car (family size). The study suggests that some initiatives can be taken for low carbon emissions in this ecotourism destination. Those are low-carbon technologies, sustainable tourism, low-carbon tourism consumption, paid carbon taxes, government and tour operator initiatives, institutional facilities development and tourism friendly traffic system. The ecotourism destinations, government, tour-operators and tourists are trying to reduce carbon emissions by improving and changing their transportations usage and other service systems. Finally, Malaysian government should develop linkage with international organizations for developing low-carbon ecotourism in ECER.

  The present study designated the impact of teamwork quality on New Product Development (NPD) cycle time through the moderated environmental turbulence in the telecommunication industry in Saudi Arabia. The aim of this study was to obtain the moderating effect of environmental turbulence on new product development cycle time in the telecom industry. Random sampling was used to select respondents for a survey. The PLS-SEM was used to analyze the direct and indirect relationships between teamwork quality, environmental turbulence and NPD cycle time while path coefficient and assessment of measurement and structural model used to test the research hypotheses. Findings indicated that environmental turbulence moderated the relationship between two factors of teamwork quality, namely, communication and coordination and NPD cycle time. Environmental turbulence did not moderate balance of member contribution, mutual support, effort and cohesion. The study also provides a theoretical understanding of how teamwork qualities drive new product development cycle time.

  This study investigated the moderating impact of risk on the relationship between e-Service quality and trust. Perceived risk is considered as the customer’s subjective belief regarding the probable negative consequence of their purchase decisions. The risk perceptions of consumers vary from one consumer to another according to factors such as the product category, person and the shopping situation. The aim of the study is to determine the moderating impact of risk on the relationship between e-Service quality and trust toward online shopping. A quantitative research design was adopted to collect data. Multiple regression analysis method was used to conduct this study. The findings of the study will contribute to both theory and practice. The results of this study have important contributions and implications for practitioners and policy-makers. This study contributed to the field of e-Service quality on consumers’ trust and attitude relationship with online shopping in the context of developing countries. It is contended that the examination of the moderating effects is more significant than the examination of a direct relationship which is quite obvious.
