This study aims to present a clear perspective of the role played by dynamic capabilities in achieving organizational strategic renwal. For this purpose, the study introduced a comprehensive framework for the most important contributions of researchers about the variables of the study, supported by an analytical framework of the opinions of 171 university leaders (Deans, Dean assisstents and heads of departments) in 26 colleges of Al-Qadisiyah and Al-Muthana universities.
The study addressed the dynamic capabilities as an independent variable through five dimensions, four of which are within the first order construct: sensing, learning, integrating, coordinating capabijity; and the fifth is within the second order construct which is reconfiguration capabijity. The strategic renewal was taken as a dependent variable with two dimensions: exploitative strategic renewal and explorative strategic renewal.
The study used the questionaire as a main tool to collect data relative to its variables. Results showed a significant correlation between the dynamic capabilities with their various dimensions and the strategic renewal with its two dimensions.
The study suggests a number of recommondations like the necessity of creating a clear and shared understanding among employees of the two universities about their strategic directions through involvement in the process of developing strategies related to their exploitative and exploratory activities and enable them to make decisions that support their dirrection toward innovation acticites.

The research seeks to use the extensive system of recommending the products and provide services such as extensive low cost taking into account flexibility and individual vision of consumers by discovering customer needs first and understand the relationship between mass production and recommending broad to accomplish those needs with an equivalent system almost to recommend system. Emphasis has been placed on the stage of product design as the cornerstone of the first production process according to this system, which relies on the participation of the client and take their views and suggestions until the product is in accordance with their wishes and aspirations. The research was applied on the global graphics company for home and office furniture being of companies operating in this system. And search out a set of conclusions, notably the presence of a large leisure time at the design stage which arranges additional expenses the company can take advantage of them in other areas, including recommended research is the need to reduce the number of designers to get rid of leisure, and that this reduction does not affect the nature of the performance stage, on the contrary, it helps to save costs and expenses and the opportunity to take advantage of them in other areas, the company may be in desperate need.

Hayder Abbas Drebee

AL-Qadisiyah Journal For Administrative and Economic sciences, 2016, Volume 17, Issue 4, Pages 169-184

This paper investigates the relationship and the direction of causality between economic growth and financial development in the long and short runs in the Iraq over the period,1970-2013. Ratio of narrow money to GDP, ratio of broad money to GDP, the ratio of to GDP, the ratio of Quasi money to GDP, the ratio of total deposit to GDP, and the ratio of private sector credit to GDP used as a proxy of financial development, while the real per capita GDP used as a proxy of the economic growth. Co-integreation test indicates that there is no-long run between economic growth and financial development, whereas the Granger causality test based on Unrestricted Vector autoregressive (VAR) indicates that there is a bi-directional causality between , and economic growth, whereas, there is no relationship between economic growth and other indicators of financial development in the short run. Iraq is heavily dependent on the oil export, government policy must be directed to diversifying the economy through expansion to other sectors (e.g., agriculture, industry and tourism), which will engender the growth of the development sector, which will in turn boost economic growth.

The time-series analysis is important topics which clearly contributed to the prediction of future events and provided in decision-making. We used several models to build a time series of variables: (Number of Goals Scored), and (Number of Goals Scored Against the Team) and choose the best model and make a prediction of these variables. Also has been analyses the distribution of data (the number of goals scored and the number of goals scored against the team) to find the probability of scoring goals within any period of time and determine the quality of the training of trainers for period time and calculate some statistical measurements that are related to recording style. We found the single exponential constant with α = 0.8134 was the best for the variable (Number of Goals Scored).

Eaman M. Almashhadani; Zaraa S. Jassem

AL-Qadisiyah Journal For Administrative and Economic sciences, 2016, Volume 17, Issue 4, Pages 257-264

Existence of many models for the distribution of income leads to difficulty of selection to the best model for the distribution of income, So the importance of this paper is through knowledge of best probability distribution for the average member income in Iraq and measure the level of social and economic welfare of the member through Peugeot index for two years (2007, 2012) at city and countryside regions where the use of statistical software (Release(R)) (ver. 3.0.1) and statistical program (matlab) and excel software to analyze and extract the results.
The statistical program (R) was used to estimate the parameters and founding χ^2 values and computes Gini value for income distributions in (2007, 2012) according to city and countryside region. and the statistical program (matlab) is used to estimate the parameters and founding χ^2 for generalized beta distribution with five parameters .
By the result, we are reaching from (R) in 2007 to all the governorates in Iraq and according to countryside and city regions that beta (tybe1) distribution in many governorates is the best probability distribution. When the value of Gini coefficient is (zero and sometimes very close to (zero), lama the level of social and economic welfare was a little low especially at the countryside regions. As well as in 2012 where it's shown that beta (tybe1) distribution is the best probability distribution in many governorates at according countryside and city economic welfare was a little low because of the increasing of inequality in the income distribution between members.
The statistical program excel is used to represent the evolution of the income structure by graphical.
We are reaching that inequality in the income distribution in 2007 simple or un noticeable and in 2012 is the biggest or noticeable between the averages of member in income.

AL-Qadisiyah Journal For Administrative and Economic sciences, 2016, Volume 17, Issue 4, Pages 266-290

The research aims to contribute to the literature of managing diversity, by providing a theoretical framework for the management of diversity and its impact and results through regulation. It studies the diversity management on two levels. The first is the virtual level and the second is the deep level. The virtual level includes age, gender, race, cultural, educational and ethnicity, while the deep level includes values, attitudes, beliefs and personality traits. The researcher aims to group the most important conclusions which point out the fact that the diversity management has become a necessity and not an option, especially in the light of the global environment. By managing diversity many advantages can be achieved by the organization, notably lower costs, low labor turnover rate, greater creativity, increased productivity and staff satisfaction.
