27 September 2018 was the special day for Research Synergy Foundation or RSF, because Dr. Hendrati Dwi Mulyaningsih, the owner of RSF attended the conference in Tokyo.
In this 2nd Japan International Business and Management Conference 2018 (2nd JIBM), she became the session chair who led a discussion between participant. The participants came from Indonesia, China, Korea, and Egypt.
This conference opened with an opening speech and introducing RSF to the participantS. As we know that RSF is the opening gate between scholar around the world, in this session, participants presenting their paper, sharing knowledge and what they got from their research. The first speaker came from Peking University, Ms. Jing Cao, The Effectiveness of Shared Leadership on Public Good Provision.
She said that there are significant positive relations between shared leadership and public goods contribution rate. It also suggests management could employ shared leadership to improve group project performance where free riding has existed.
The second and third presenter were from Indonesia. They are Ms. Alfira Sofia and Mr. Herry Irawan who presenting their paper via Skype. Ms. Alfira presented Can Phenomenon of Flypaper effect reduce the effectiveness of global governments efforts in achieving high economic growth?. During the discussion, Ms. Jing Cao said that Ms. Alfira’s paper has a relation to her paper. Hope one day, they can collaborate to make a new research. Different with Mr. Herry who presenting Service quality gap between Customer’s Expectation and Manager’s Perception at PT. Indosat Ooredoo Indonesia. He said that here is different perception between customer and manager. The customer expects that the most important items are security, flexible-price policy, efficiency, effectiveness, and accuracy. While the manager perceives that their customers will be valued most on efficiency and effectiveness, integrations, security, and training.
The fourth speaker and the most interesting is from Arin Wulandari with “Comparative analysis of Empennage Design Indonesian Aircraft Project Scheduling with critical path Method (CPM) and Critical Chain Project Management (CCPM)”. The problem comes from it resources that should import from other countries that took a big cost. Might be, this paper could be one of suggestion to the Indonesian government.
Arin is one of a student from Dr. Dachyar, Indonesia University, who became attendee at that time. Arin was not coming alone, Syafira, Yasmin and Agustina also came with her. They also presented their paper. But Melisa couldn’t come because she has another program at the same time. In her result paper, she found that the completion time based on CPM scheduling is 955 working days and CCPM scheduling is 950.03 working days. CPM has a simpler calculation process that CCPM.CCPM scheduling can minimize costs, uses more optimal human resources and be more risk-anticipating than CPM schedule.
The last presenter came from Flora Elvistia Fidaus from Jayabaya University with the title The Production of Environmentally Friendly of Woven Rattan Fiber based Composite. She explained that the depletion of petroleum resources had impacted the rising awareness of global warming, which had made many research focuses on using natural resources. The rattan fibers are represented as natural material to reinforce matrix resulting composite product.
Overall this conference was doing well. The participants shared knowledge in their field and making network with another researcher from another country. after closing, we had lunch together and took a group photo session.
