Late evening on 8th November 2016, the Government of India demonetized the high denomination bills of ₹ 500 and ₹ 1000 and sent shock waves across the nation. ₹ 14.5 trillion (i.e. 86% of currency), thus sucked out of the system, was to be deposited/expended within a specified time and eventually replaced by new ₹ 500 and ₹ 2000 denomination bills. The common man bore the brunt under the fallacy that the inconvenience inflicted was short term and in the long run, the extreme action of the government was aimed at a larger public good. This is a study of the purpose, the process and the impact of this mega exercise on service sector through a natural experiment. © Springer International Publishing AG 2018.

This paper aims to understand the purposes for which digitization is used by women in the Indian context and argues that digitization, per se, is not enough to empower women. In Indian culture, women have always taken the back seat in family decision making. Their life revolves around the family and fulfilling its needs. Today, the condition of women has improved as compared to yester-years but, due to lack of awareness, they still use very limited resources to empower themselves. The sample for this study has been taken from the economic capital of India, Mumbai, where Information & Communication Technology (ICT) and digitization are easily accessible. Despite the easy accessibility of ICT and digitization, this paper suggests that women in this city appear to have a limited purpose in using the internet or ICT. ICT and digitization are largely used for online social interaction and entertainment. This study finds that women are dependent on their family before and after marriage, for financial decision making. Online education does not depend on age and employment status, but on educational qualification and marital status. Thus, the study suggests that social and economic inequality exists and that they hinder capacity-building among women. With the help of this study, one gains an understanding of the purposes for which women use available digital facilities. The findings suggest that governments need to design and implement more interactive awareness programmes and policies for women to empower them through the effective and efficient use of the digital platform. © 2017 ACM.

In the context of the scope, time, cost, and quality constraints, failure is not uncommon in project management. While small projects have 70% chances of success, large projects virtually have no chance of meeting the quadruple constraints. While there is no dearth of research on project risk management, the manifestation of barriers to project risk management is a less dwelt topic. The success of project management is oftentimes based on the understanding of barriers to effective risk management, application of appropriate risk management methodology, proactive leadership to avoid barriers, workers’ attitude, adequate resources, organizational culture, and involvement of top management. This paper represents various risk categories and barriers to risk management in domestic and international projects through literature survey and feedback from project professionals. After analysing the various modelling methods used in project risk management literature, interpretive structural modelling (ISM) and MICMAC analysis have been used to analyse interactions among the barriers and prioritize them. The analysis indicates that lack of top management support, lack of formal training, and lack of addressing cultural differences are the high priority barriers, among many others. © 2017 The Author(s)
