Since the philosophy of TQM was developed, TQM has been attracting the attention of academics and managers. Though there is a large number of literatures about success stories and benefits TQM, many TQM implementation programs fail because of various reasons. Because implementation of TQM is not without difficulties and there is no easy way to be successful.</p> <p>The main objective of the article is to present pitfalls of implementation of TQM based on reviewing the literature. It is asserted that obstacles to a successful implementation of TQM are managerial, not individual. The article may be useful for managers and practitioners to avoid pitfalls of implementing TQM.</p> Ömer Faruk Ünal Copyright (c) 2021 Eurasian Journal of Higher Education Mon, 05 Apr 2021 00:00:00 +0300 Role and Compensation Related Factors Causing Heavy Workload: An Empirical Study among Sanitary Workers <p>This survey, quantitative and empirical based descriptive research has the objective of analysing perception of sanitary workers working in private multi-speciality hospitals in Tirunelveli city of Tamil Nadu, India towards various role and compensation related factors causing heavy workload. In order to achieve the objective, the study sampled 80 respondents using both convenience and judgement sampling techniques, and from the chosen respondents the primary data were collected using schedule method with the help of questionnaire (translating the questions in respondents’ mother language, ‘Tamil’) along with interview. The secondary data were collected from books, journals and conference proceedings to add appropriate significance to the study. Percentage method was administered to analyse both demographic characteristics of the study and perception of the respondents towards role and compensation related factors causing heavy workload. The result of the analysis has found that all the factors discussed in this study such as ill-defined roles and responsibilities, receiving conflicting messages from two or more heads at the same time, person’s interest remain contradict with the job role, salary is not adequate in accordance with the work performed, discrimination and bias in fixing salary and inadequate non-monetary rewards for effective contribution at work were strongly agreed by majority of the respondents. The study has given suitable suggestions as to how to rationalize the role and compensation related factors causing heavy workload.</p> Rajan Durairaj Copyright (c) 2021 Eurasian Journal of Higher Education Mon, 05 Apr 2021 00:00:00 +0300 The Concept of Competence in Foreign Language Teaching for Intercultural Communication <p>That the globalization occurs in all fields of life is an undeniable fact on the one hand and necessity of foreign language teaching and learning according to the requirements of globalization and intercultural communication is another reality on the other... The demands and expectations from language teachers, enabling the language learners to be successful interlocutors in the intercultural spaces have long been the issue of investigation and discussion in the field of foreign language teaching and learning. We think the term ‘competence’ has the key role for this issue and it needs to be dug and discussed as deep as possible to be figured out in detail. Once the content, concept and boundaries of the term ‘competence’ is defined and described neatly in the field of foreign language education we believe that the path to be followed by both language educators and learners would be more definite. In this paper it is aimed to discuss and figure out the term ‘competence’ in terms of foreign language teaching for intercultural interaction and communication. The very general purpose of foreign language teaching/learning, the role of competence in cognition of foreign language and the use of it in intercultural spaces have also been tackled throughout the paper.</p> Yakup DOGANAY, Gaipov Davronzhon, Sadykbekov Kurmangazi Copyright (c) 2021 Eurasian Journal of Higher Education Mon, 05 Apr 2021 00:00:00 +0300 The Innovation Component in Regional Policy <p>The paper analyses the impact of innovations on stimulating regional development. The main goal is to identify the effect of innovations on reducing the asymmetry of regional development. The study the innovative concepts emphasize the importance of understanding the link between innovations and their implementation via the regional policy mechanism. The utilization of the existing approach results suggests its use of innovative component of regional policy for stimulating equalization GRP per capita in regions and smoothing disproportions.</p> <p>We test the following hypothesis: the level of development of the region significantly depends on the innovation component. We assess a research model of hierarchical cluster analysis. The innovative component affects decreasing asymmetry in regional development. The proposed model offers a comprehensive set of alternative methods stimulating value creation in regions.</p> <p>Stimulating spending in the innovation sphere will contribute to the growth of employment, rise income per capita, increase the competitiveness, tax revenues, and promote infrastructure development.</p> <p>The proposed regional policy includes tax regulation, innovation policy, limited subsidies, and tax allowances, the top-priority investment in R&amp;D, education, informational network.</p> Olga Nosova, Tetiana Nosova Copyright (c) 2021 Eurasian Journal of Higher Education Mon, 05 Apr 2021 00:00:00 +0300
