The Use of Political Risk Assessment Techniques in Jordanian International Firms

Warianty tytułu
Wykorzystanie metod oceny ryzyka politycznego w jordańskich firmach międzynarodowych
Języki publikacji
The aim of this research was to describe and explain the use of techniques of political risk assessment (pra) in Jordanian international firms. The research identified the extensive use of qualitative pra techniques due to their flexibility, simplicity and low cost. Quantitative techniques, on the other hand, were used by only a minority of respondents. In any event, Jordanian international firms believe that official data is subject to censorship and is therefore not reliable. This undermines the efficiency of using highly sophisticated quantitative techniques. (original abstract)
Celem artykułu było opisanie i wyjaśnienie technik stosowania oceny ryzyka politycznego na przykładzie jordańskich międzynarodowych przedsiębiorstw. Badanie identyfikuje ważne zastosowanie technik jakościowych ze względu na ich elastyczność, prostotę i niski koszt. Techniki ilościowe były wykorzystywane przez mniejszość respondentów. W każdym przypadku w jordańskich międzynarodowych firmach uważa się, że oficjalne dane są poddawane cenzurze i z tego względu nie są wiarygodne. Podważa to efektywne wykorzystanie zaawansowanych technik ilościowych. (abstrakt oryginalny)
