Zahra Abd Mohammeda, aMustansiriyah University/College of Administration and Economics Department of Business Administration/ Baghdad-Iraq, Email: azahra_abd@uomustansiriyah.edu.iq

Today in the global competitive market, companies strive to maintain their competitive advantage by offering good products with high value, low cost and not harmful to the environment, as well as ease of design, engineering, manufacturing and assembly of products. From this perspective, the research problem focuses on the fact that manufacturing companies should apply the best methods and techniques in the design and development of their products. Therefore, the research aims to clarify the role of integration of methods and techniques adopted in the process of product design and development. This research has presented 14 methods and techniques that have a very big role in the process of product design and development. The integration of these methods and techniques provides a new direction for designers and manufacturers in line with the rapid developments and the ongoing changes in the global industrial environment. To achieve the research objective, a questionnaire was prepared as a main tool to collect the necessary data on the research sample. The questionnaire included 42 items. Diala State Company for Electrical Industries was selected as the site for the research. A number of statistical techniques were applied including arithmetic mean, standard deviation as well as factor analysis that includes Kaiser-Meyer-Olkin measure, Bartlett test and Principal Components method. The Statistical Package for Social Science (SPSS) was used to extract the results. The research found that the deployment of the quality function came first while the concurrent engineering team came in the lowest rank in terms of the relative importance in the design and development of products and the existence of significant correlations between methods and techniques adopted in the design and development of products. The cumulative percentage of the explanatory variation of the combined factors recorded a value amounted to (79.075) which indicates that the methods and techniques adopted affect the design and development of both the distribution and power transformers products. The research also found that the company pays attention to the methods and techniques of product development, such as computer-aided design, computer-aided engineering, environmental design, information technology and standard design. This demonstrates the importance of these factors for both the distribution and power transformers products. Pages 14 to 41

Layla M.Nassira, Nathier A. Ibrahimb, a,bCollege of Eng., Al-Mustansiriya University, Baghdad, Iraq, 2Al – Turath University, Email: alayla_matter@yahoo.com,  bnbrhms@yahoo.com

The Dagum distribution has been widely used especially in the modelling of lifetime. It provides a statistical model that has a wide variety of application in many areas such as survival analysis and data analysis. The conventional maximum likelihood method is the usual way to estimate the parameters of a distribution. Bayesian approach has received much attention in contention with other estimation methods. In this paper we explore and compare the performance of the maximum likelihood and moment estimates with the Bayesian estimate of Survival function for Dagum distribution. The maximum likelihood estimation, moment estimation, Bayesian using Extension Jeffrey prior, gamma prior for estimation the Survival  function under symmetric and asymmetric loss function are presented. We explore the performance of these estimators numerically under varying conditions. Through the simulation study a comparison are made on the performance of these estimators with respect to the integrated mean square error (MSE). For all the varying sample size, several values of the threshold parameter for the two parameter Dagum distribution and for the values for the extension of Jeffery and gamma prior. We concluded that Bayes method that based on Jeffery prior under squared error loss function are more efficient for small values of shape parameter and Bayes method that based on gamma under Linex loss function are more efficient for large values of shape parameter.

This paper investigates how Sinan Antoon, the author and translator of “The Corpse Washer”, exposes to the public view the trauma of war and the horror of violence in Iraq, post 2003. Further, he discusses the impact of the physical and mental wounds left by trauma on the main character's psyche and his family structure. I also intend to prove that traumatic experience hinders identity development. Antoon discusses the concept of suffering and pain in the Iraqi community post 2003. He creates a picture of Iraq where all Iraqis after colonialism are victims of violence. Trauma theory is a useful field to understand the injuries of Iraqis in a long-lasting period of suffering and oppression. Pages 88 to 98

The Effect of Selected Factors on Adaptive Behavioural Responses to Urban Air Pollution in Malaysia

Syazwani Sahrira*, Ahmad Makmom Abdullahb, Zakiah Ponrahonoc, Amir Hamzah Sharaaid, a,c,dDepartment of Environmental Management, Faculty of Environmental Studies, Universiti Putra Malaysia, 43400 UPM Serdang, Selangor, Malaysia, bDepartment of Environmental Sciences, Faculty of Environmental Studies, Universiti Putra Malaysia, 43400 UPM Serdang, Selangor, Malaysia, Email: a*gs50311@student.upm.edu.my

Urban air pollution is a primary concern throughout the world due to the upsurge of urban populations and high traffic volumes in urban regions. Urban air pollution is created by the failure of the public and the environment to respond to the amount of waste produced in relatively small areas throughout high population density and concentration. The intention of this study was to examine the effect of selected factors (perceived vulnerability, perceived severity, self-efficacy and response efficacy) on adaptive behaviour to urban air pollution. The respondents (N = 450) answered a face-to-face questionnaire survey. The results reveal support for the proposed model, with perceived vulnerability (H1) and self-efficacy (H3) positively predicting adaptive behavioural responses towards urban air quality. The findings specify that there is a significant relationship between perceived vulnerability (ß = 0.246, t = 4.534, P=0.000) and self-efficacy (ß = 0.510, t = 9.653, P=0.000) to adaptive behaviour of the urban community. As a conclusion, this study validates that vulnerability and self-efficacy have a major impact on the adaptive behaviour of the community on urban air pollution in Malaysia. The study makes a significant contribution to the literature by providing evidence of these selected factors as an ideal predictor for adaptive behaviour on air pollution. Pages 112 to 134

The Development of a Sustainability Framework via Lean Green Six Sigma Practices in SMEs Based upon RBV Theory

Maryam Pervez Khana*, Noraini Abu Talibb, Tan Owee Kowangc, aPhd Scholar,Universiti Teknologi Malaysia, bAssociate Professor, Universiti Teknologi Malasyia, cSenior Lecturer, Universiti Teknologi Malaysia, Email: a*maryam.pervez.khan@gmail.com

Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) are considered the driving force for the Malaysian economy. They stimulate the local economy, provide employment, and for large companies, they participate in supply chains. However, limited studies have been found on SMEs which are related to the achievement of sustainability. On the other hand, lean, green, six sigma and sustainability performance are among the most commonly discussed topics in the literature of business operations. Despite the linkages among these concepts, there have been nominal efforts at integrating the concepts of lean, green and six sigma concerning sustainability performance in SMEs. Therefore, this study suggests a conceptual framework for the implementation of lean, green and six sigma practices which impact on the sustainability performance within business operations of SMEs in Malaysia. This conceptual paper shines a light on the integration of lean green manufacturing practices with the combination of six sigma practices in SMEs. The combination of these concepts provides benefits to industry, as well as society. These days, society is demanding those business models which are socially responsible and more sustainable. Therefore, the sustainability concept has now become a basis to help understand many firms’ success in the current competitive contexts. Therefore, the findings emanating from the study will aid SMEs to understand the importance of lean green, six sigma practices which effect on their day to day performance, as well as to formulate an effective approach to pursue the path towards sustainability.

The Relationship Between Votes, Campaign Funds and Previous Winning Political Parties in the General Elections in Indonesia

Lita Kusumasaria, aSTIE YKPN School of Business, Email: alkusumasari@yahoo.com

Campaign funds in the general election are playing a vital role. There is an assumption that the higher campaign fund could obtain higher votes. A political party is gradually increasing campaign funds to win the votes. On the other side, people have scepticism that campaign funds will be used to buy votes, also known as money politics. People consider that the more money that is used for campaign funds will lead to fraud. The transparency of the campaign fund is important as a tool for voters to choose the right one. The General Elections Commission regulates that the political party has to submit a campaign fund report that consists of a source of funds and spending forms in Indonesia. The campaign fund report would disclose whether candidates rely on their own money or from other contributions. Relying too much on other contributions would lead to nepotism and fraud in the future, due to payback. The relationship between campaign funding and electoral success is a fruitful subject for scholars. The finding is there is a positive link between spending and electoral success. The other result is that a candidate share of the vote is not substantially affected by their campaign spending. There is a gap in the result that could be explored more, especially in Indonesia where democracy is growing. Indonesia is well known for political corruption that involves legislators, governors, and mayors. Based on the issue, the purpose of this research is to determine the relationship between votes, campaign funds and previous winning political parties in Indonesia for the general election during the period of 2009–2019. The analysis method used is regression. The result is a substantially significant relationship between vote and campaign funds and previous winning political parties for the general elections in Indonesia. Pages 157 to 173

Muhammad Dahlana*, Harry Suharmanb, Sugiono Poulusc, a,b,cDepartment of Accounting, The University of Padjadjaran, Bandung 40132, Indonesia, Email: a*dahlanm2004@yahoo.com

This study examined the effect of strategic priorities on the performance of strategic business units (SBU). The mediating variables are value congruence and job challenge. We distributed a survey to 200 functional strategic managers of the SBU in the state-owned enterprise region of West Java Indonesia and gained 104 responses. Ninety usable data were used to analyse the hypotheses using Path Analysis software. The study revealed that strategic priority has a positive effect on SBU performance both directly and indirectly, through job challenge and value congruence. In other words, there is a positive relationship between strategic priority and SBU performance which is fully mediated by value congruence and job challenge while clustering strategic priorities employed. This study enriches business strategy model literature, especially concerning value congruence and job challenge in strategic priority in the state-owned enterprise region West Java of Indonesia. Prior studies have found difficulties analysing the influence of value congruence and job challenge in management strategy systems studies on the state-owned enterprise of SBU performance.

The franchise industry is one of the most widely recognised business forms promising profitable business ownership. Inherent in the franchise business management is the unique relationship between the entrepreneurs in the franchise business, namely the franchisors and franchisees.  It appears that trust is the key to the ongoing franchise relationship. Hence this research investigates whether trust mediates the relationship between entrepreneurial capacity and commitment in the franchise industry in Malaysia. This research developed a conceptual model by reviewing the commitment-trust theory and also conducting an extensive literature review. Samples were selected from franchisees who operate their franchise business around Klang Valley area. A total of 291 completed questionnaires were analysed using PLS-SEM. The results identify that relationship has a significant direct effect between entrepreneurial capacity and commitment. The findings also indicate that trust mediates the relationship between entrepreneurial capacity and commitment with partial mediation statistically significant at 0.01. This research’s results are likely to add on and contribute to the literature on the title above. The result also could be agreed by franchisors in defining the commitment amongst the franchisees that can become the prominent contender for the business of franchise. The author claims about this study that it would furnish a significant functional foundation for franchisors in the franchisees’ selection procedure. Pages 190 to 200

This paper examines the relationship between organisational cynicism, creative work involvement, emotional exhaustion,  and in-role performance.  Organisational cynicism happens when an employee has no trust in his/her organisation’s change process. As a result, he/she tends to criticize his/her organisation. This research argues that being critics will drain someone’s emotional resources and will result in high emotional exhaustion. This emotionally exhausted employee will have low creative work involvement and low in-role performance. This research also argues that employees with high organisational cynicism will have higher creative work involvement. The last hypothesis examined is that creative work involvement will have a positive influence on employee in-role performance. 200 employees with a tenure of more than one year from various organisations participated in this research. Hypothesis testing was conducted with the two-step method of structural equation modelling. This research has several findings: organisational cynicism has positively influenced emotional exhaustion, organisational cynicism positively influences creative work involvement,  emotional exhaustion has negatively influenced creative work involvement, emotional exhaustion also negatively influenced in-role performance, and creative work involvement positively influenced in-role performance.

The Relationship among Celebrity Endorser, Self-brand Connection, Relationship Quality and Repurchase Intention: The Moderating Role of Customer Satisfaction and Media Type

Yana Listyadewi Supriyadia, Wisnu Prajogob*, a,bSTIE YKPN School of Business, Email: ayanalstya@gmail.com,  b*wisnuprajogo@gmail.com

Advertising using celebrity endorsers is a company’s strategy to promote its brand to consumers. Celebrity endorser is considered as a credible source for promoting brand based on the celebrity’s attractiveness, expertise, and trustworthiness. A brand can be used to create a consumer’s self-concept. The self-brand connection is how far customers integrate a brand into their self-concept. When the self-concept is achieved, the customer is willing to engage in a relationship with the brand (relationship quality). This can be influenced by customer satisfaction. The change of technology makes all changes, including advertising media. Electronic media is currently divided into conventional and modern. The conventional electronic media in this research is television, while modern electronic media is social media. Previous research only examined one type of electronic media. In this research, I want to examine the differences between the types of electronic media. This research used 232 samples, consist of 118 samples of conventional electronic media and 114 samples of modern electronic media. The data processed using IBM SPSS Statistics 24 and SmartPLS 3.2.8. The result of this research is that all of the hypotheses are accepted, except for the third hypothesis. The result of the moderation test on the type of media revealed that there are differences between conventional and modern electronic media. The most differences are the effect of celebrity endorser on repurchase intention and the influence of relationship quality on repurchase intention. Pages 238 to 253

Juliana Ahmada*, Siti Fairos Saffardinb, Kok Ban Teohc, a,b,cSENTRAL College Penang, 10200 Penang, Malaysia, Email: a*juliana@sentral.edu.my

In recent years, preschool educators are engaged with demanding quality teaching and complex administrative work in their environment. The excessive job demands and the insufficient job resources have resulted in preschool educators to encounter more significant levels of burnout and this influences their work engagement. Hence, the paper aims to investigate the predictors of burnout among preschool educators as well as the potential mediating role of work engagement. This study proposes that job demands have a significant positive relationship with burnout, while job resources and work engagement have a significant negative relationship with burnout. In addition, work engagement is demonstrated to possess a significant mediator between job resource and burnout. Therefore, this study is priceless to both scholars and practitioners who wish to monitor and decrease the burnout prevalence among preschool educators. Pages 283 to 293

Permeable pavements are a key storm water management measure employed both to attenuate surface runoff in urban areas and to filter urban storm water pollutants. Existing permeable pavements (PP) are design with the specific percentage porosity whereby enabling excess rainwater to infiltrate through the system and acting as a depression storage at the same time. Depression storage basically refers to the volume of water trapped in the depression when the precipitation of a storm reaches the ground and fills up all the depression before it can flow over the surface. Cylindrical Detention Pond (CDP) is an alternative paving material that may alleviate many of the hydrological problems caused by urban runoff from developed areas. CDP consist of three basic components: top cover, bottom cover and hollow cylindrical at the centre (300mm thickness). The hollow cylinder has an approximate 50 percent porosity from the total solid of component, which is every 1 inch (25 mm) of pavement depth can hold 0.5 inches (12.5 mm) of rain in theory. In this study, the depression storage rate of CDP was investigated under three different rainfall intensity scenarios which are 77mm/hr (low), 153mm/hr (medium), and 230mm/hr (heavy) respectively, whereby it functions to monitor the analytical trend line. The experiment was conducted in a model box in the laboratory under a fully saturated condition. It found that the CDP can perform to detain the water until 180 min of excess rainfall for all 2 year ARI, 5 year ARI, 10 year ARI, 20 year ARI, 50 year ARI and 100 year ARI with different rates. CDP’s are able to reduce the runoff from up to 77% of the total rainfall volume. The result proved that the hollow cylindrical at centre of CDP was very effective in runoff volume reduction according to the different ARI trend line projections. Pages 307 to 325

The Role of the School Climate to Moderate an Agreeableness Personality Trait on Bullies

Sri W Rahmawatia, aFaculty of Psychology, Universitas Tama Jagakarsa, Jakarta 12530, E-mail: aswrahma@yahoo.com

Nowadays, a number of programs have been implemented to anticipate bullying. However, they are not effective yet to prevent bullying from happening despite the fact that bullying has negatively impacted on things that may not be underestimated, either short-term ones (being afraid to go to school, feeling insecurity, feeling isolated) or long-term ones (affecting the formation of a negative self-concept, depression, emotional problems and a desire to commit a suicide). This study was aimed at examining a model in which the impact of an agreeableness personality trait on bullying is moderated by the school climate. The samples of this study were 723 Senior High School students from five administrative municipalities in Jakarta Capital Special Region, Indonesia. Moreover, the author employed a purposive sampling technique. NEO PI-R, School climate scale, and My life at school check served as the measuring instruments. This study found out that an agreeableness personality trait moderated by the school climate negatively impacted more on the bullies than the direct impact of an agreeableness straight to the bullies. Therefore, the author drew a conclusion that the relations between an agreeableness personality trait and bullying could be enriched theoretically, and could be optimised by including a school climate as the mediator.

The term e-commerce has progressed rapidly all around the globe and e-commerce businesses are making progress drastically by allowing customers to purchase products from any part of the world. E-commerce mainly focuses on female economy in marketing but due to the rise of middle class, male Internet users’ economic strength is rising and they are finding their own worth. This has made the "male e-commerce economy" a new online consumer outlet. Therefore, how to break through traditional marketing ideas of e-commerce, strengthen the cultivation of male consumers loyalty, improve their purchase and repurchase rate has become an urgent problem for e-commerce. Based on this, we compared different demands and characteristics of online shopping between men and women by referring to theories related to customer satisfaction. After that, we constructed the evaluation model of customer satisfaction of the e-commerce platform for male customers. We analysed 289 questionnaires from Chinese male students and verified the feasibility and effectiveness of the above evaluation model by received data. We found that e-satisfaction is positively correlated with convenience, customisation, information and communication, and negatively with website aesthetics. This study can provide reference and guidance for e-commerce platforms to seize the opportunity of the "male e-commerce economy". Pages 370 to 393

Tanvir Hussain Himela, aMonash University, Australia, Email: athhim1@student.monash.edu

Customer relationship management (CRM) is an approach in order to establish interaction with existing and probable clients by using data analysis from a database system named CRM database system which covers all customers’ data. These are collected, stored and analysed utilising a customer relationship program. Bangladesh is a developing country where internet marketing is widely used now-a-days; however, lack of proper implementation of the latest technology, lack of adept IT professionals, poor delivery timing, and a bad transportation system are some of the disablers for success in online shopping systems. Also, few pieces of research have been done up to now on the integration of internet marketing and database marketing for online shopping in Bangladesh, as this sector is still developing. This research contains both qualitative and quantitative research in order to discover the ways of improving CRM for online shopping through database and internet marketing in Bangladesh. Face to face interviews, along with questionnaires’ distributions, have been taken from Bangladeshi online buyers (customers) in order to know the ways of improvement in CRM systems. Moreover, this research provides information about the paths of the integrated working environment between IT and marketing teams of companies. Furthermore, appropriate recommendations are given for future research according to the results of the research. Pages 394 to 410

Academic supervision is a coaching method of principals to improve the effectiveness of teaching. However in actual practice, a standard model has not been found that is relevant for each type of supervision, so the implementation of academic supervision still relies on the art of each school principal in conducting coaching. Therefore, this study intends to apply the grow me please model in the practice of academic supervision in order to obtain the effectiveness of teachers in teaching. The method used is 4D design-based research (define-design-develop-disseminate). Qualitative and quantitative descriptive data are used as the analysis technique. The results show that the academic supervision of the grow me please model could be applied by the principal in implementing academic supervision to obtain effective teacher teaching performance. In order to get more optimal results, the application of the grow me please model is done in a professional learning community with an empathetic collaborative atmosphere. Pages 411 to 422

This article studies the equity principle in conducting social and environmental responsibility of the Palm Oil Plantation Company in Aceh Province. The Equity principle is clearly stated in The Book of Civil Code Article 1339 and Article 74 Paragraph (2) Law Number 40 Year 2007 of the Limited Liability Company.

Moreover, the concretisation of the equity principle of the Palm Oil Plantation Company in implementing social and environmental responsibility programs is in consideration of the financial capability of the company and the propriety applied in the Acehnese Community. The concretisation of the equity principle in the community is that social and environmental responsibility is based on the need for community and based on local community tradition. The concretisation of equity principles can be implemented based on a fair agreement between the company and the community in order to achieve justice for all parties. Pages 423 to 436

The Implementation of the Horizontal Partition Principle in Buying and Selling Rights for Housing and Land in the Province of Aceh, Indonesia

Herinawatia*, Tan Kamellob, Ilyas Ismailc, Mahdi Syahbandird, aDoctoral Program Faculty of Law, Universitas of Syiah Kuala, Banda Aceh-Indonesia, bFaculty of Law University of Sumatera Utara, Medan-Indonesia, c,dFaculty of Law University of Syiah Kuala, Banda Aceh-Indonesia, Email: a*herinawati@unimal.ac.id

This article aims to study the implementation of the horizontal partition principle in buying and selling right on the land and house on the land in the Province of Aceh. The horizontal partition principle derives from Adat-law which becomes the legal basis of Indonesian Land Law as explicitly mandated in Article 5 UUPA (the Basic Agrarian Law Act). This study is a legal normative study, which uses secondary data as the main data, and primary data as supporting data. The data collection technique is library research and interviews that  are additional data. The data is analysed qualitatively to answer the issue prescriptively. The application of the horizontal partition principle in buying and selling right on the land or a house on the land is only applied to traditional houses in Aceh and houses built from wood; buying and selling has been done for a long time, from generation to generation by the Acehnese community, which is buying the right of the land which is partitioned from the house on the land. However, on the progress, buying and selling right of the land which is implemented based on PPAT (Notary or Head of District as Official Issuing Land Certificate) is including the house on the land. Therefore, it does not mean that Indonesian Land Law neglects horizontal partition principles and changes it with adhesions, law. The implementation of the horizontal partition principle is adjusted with the development of community need in order to achieve justice for all parties in terms of land or house ownership between the owner of the land and the owner of the house on the land.

The Poem of the Mask in the Poetry of Abdul Aziz Al-Maqaleh

Ahmed Mahdi Zubaidia, Bedaa Abdul-SahebAl-Taieb, aMustansiriy University, bUniversity of Baghdad,

In the Arab critical mind, there is a question about the specific stylistic frameworks of the Arab poetic modernity, which started with poetry without a critical whistle. The modern Arab poet was preoccupied with their poetic identity and any styles suitable for their new industry. Hence, the modern poetic forms, through the openness of the poetic text to other literary races, arts and types, have abandoned the modern poetry of the house and its rhythmic supplies and announced their revolution on the numerical hierarchy. However, the shift in rhythmic sensors does not mean the shift towards modernity. The Arab poem’s stages are lyrical, so modern poetry seeks to trim the lyric sound, as the central focus of the traditional poem. Another question is the poetic aesthetic response to modernist concepts of totalitarian revolutionary tendency. Especially, that the Arab public or private cultural space was not reconciled or convinced of modernity, and therefore, began from the cultural voices opposed to the authority. Poetry was one of the most important manifestations. When we say this poetry does not mean that it does not suffer from the leakage of power and political forms to its substantive and artistic joints, we must remember that those who opposed modernity and poem activism are from their platoon and the sons of their rhymes and performances. The authoritarian poet has never reconciled with the opposing poet, and the two may be together in one body of poetry. Poetry does not deprive diversity or disgust with lying. Pages 554 to 568

BIM Requirements across a Construction Project Lifecycle: A PRISMA-Compliant Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis

Syafizal Shahruddina, Mohd Zairulb, aSchool of Housing, Building and Planning, Universiti Sains Malaysia, Pulau Pinang, Malaysia, bDepartment of Architecture, Faculty of Design & Architecture, Universiti Putra Malaysia, Selangor, Malaysia, Email: afizalshahruddin@gmail.com,  bm_zairul@upm.edu.my

Building information modelling (BIM) has been progressively adopted within the architecture, engineering, construction, and operation (AECO) industries across the globe. The main goals behind the BIM adoption are to save procurement costs, reduce greenhouse emissions, and improve the productivity of the AECO industry. However, these goals are still difficult to be achieved due to the ambiguity of BIM requirements across a construction project lifecycle. Therefore, in such a situation, there is a need to increase understanding among the AECO industry players on the requirements of BIM implementation in order for them to fully grasp the benefits of BIM. This article sets out to redefine the required components of BIM requirements for a successful implementation of BIM across a construction project lifecycle. A systematic review was guided by the PRISMA (Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic reviews and Meta-Analyses) method in evaluating relevant published studies. The study systematically derived 39 papers covering the various aspects of BIM requirements across a construction project lifecycle. The initial findings highlighted that the required components of BIM requirements predominantly reside within policy, process, technology, environment, and people interlocking themes. These five themes further produced a total of 41 subthemes. The findings then led to the development of a BIM requirements’ process map across a construction project lifecycle. This study contributes to the body of knowledge by extending the required components of BIM requirements across a construction project lifecycle. This study also provides some valuable insights for AECO industry players across the globe on the full benefits of BIM. Pages 569 to 590

Ethics, as a guide for carrying out activities, is crucial in management accounting information systems. A management accounting information system provides practical information for management which contributes to the efficacy and the efficiency of an organisation. Amil, those employed to administer Zakat, is required to include ethics in performing zakat collection. This research was conducted to examine the effect of Amil’s ethics on the quality of the management accounting information system and the impact on organisational performance. The survey was conducted on 211 respondents in 82 BAZNAS in certain provinces, districts and cities in Java, North Sumatra and Aceh. Respondents were those in middle management. Data was collected using questionnaires and analysed using the partial least square (PLS) method. The results indicated that Amil’s ethics have a significant effect on the quality of the management accounting information system and that this ultimately influenced organisational performance significantly.
