A survey was used to collect primary data from branches of one of the leading banks in Nigeria and 796 usable questionnaires from bank customers, employees and managers were used for analysis. A descriptive research method and correlational study was used to determine the link between Big Data elements such as use of customers’ data and predictive analysis of customer trends and patterns in form of differentiation, increased sales, customer engagement as well as cost leadership. The research focused on customer’s rate of reviews of Big Data as the independent variables with repeat engagement and interaction as the dependent variables. Descriptive statistics using SPSS program specifically mean and standard deviations was employed for the analysis. Results show that banks create differentiation by introducing a variety of products and product mix from the analysis of customer feedback, trends and pattern which has driven customer satisfaction due to easy access to information and banking, access to products online, pay for bills via mobile banking platform, and response on various social media platforms. However, even though most customers use ATM cards and are on the mobile banking platform, Bank management should focus more on staff training and use of Diagnostic and descriptive statistics in understanding why and how some customers behave especially those who express their concerns on social media.</p> 2019-05-04T06:40:52+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Gender and improvisation managerial situations in a project context: a comparative study between two countries (France-Senegal) 2019-05-04T06:55:29+00:00 KAMA Joseph Gniaka LEROY Daniel WADE Mohamed El Bachir <p>This article is interested in the managerial approach of projects.

After having constructedthe variable "organizational improvisation" with the two variables "uncertainty" and "temporal pressure", the chi-square independence tests with the X-SAT solution made it possible to identify project management situations that organizational improvisation.Variance analyzes make it possible to note statistically insignificant gender differences when actors working in a project context face improvising situations. In the context of improvisation, the level of study of the actors interviewed plays a predominant role where age has very little influence.</p> 2019-05-04T06:55:28+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## ECONOMIC DIVERSIFICATION AND INDUSTRIAL GROWTH IN NIGERIA 2019-05-06T07:11:09+00:00 Dr. Ikon Michael A. <p>Nigeria’s inability to diversify its economy and relying on a monoproduct-crude oil for economic sustenance over past four decades has impeded Nigeria’s resilience over shocks occasioned by disruptive changes in international oil prices.
