Faculty Publishing: AUN Professor Mahmoud's Study Confirms Applicability of Western Enterprise Frameworks in Nigerian Business Settings

A new study has confirmed that established cognitive frameworks in Western enterprises are applicable in the Nigerian business environment. The April 2022 Scopus Indexed publication by AUN Professor of Business and Entrepreneurship, Dr. Mahmoud Ahmad Mahmoud and two others "validates the measurements of psychological safety (PS), psychological empowerment (PE), intrapreneurial behavior (IB) and individual performance (IP) variables originally developed in Western individualistic cultures."

The study, which appeared in the April 2022 edition of the RAUSP Management Journal, Emerald Publishing, confirms that "all four construct measurements are suitable and appropriate to gauge the respective constructs in collectivistic cultures such as Nigeria."

The practical implication of the confirmation is that business organizations, mainly medium enterprises, can use the validated measurements of this study to enhance work results in the Nigerian context.

"This paper extends the body of knowledge by validating the measurements of Psychological Safety (PS), Psychological Empowerment (PE), intrapreneurial behaviour (IB) and individual performance (IP) in collectivistic cultures such as Nigeria. Measurement validation for these constructs is scarce in this context. The study, therefore, provided a consistent and efficient reference for forthcoming studies and improve the credibility and replicability of future research results in collectivistic cultures".
