The target population for the study consisted of the tourism industry, including the ministry of tourism, which oversees the operations of tourism agencies. This resulted in a total of 10 areas of study. To determine the sample size, a total of 327 participants were selected using a specific formula. The study collected primary data through the use of questionnaires and interview guides, allowing for the collection of both qualitative and quantitative data. Quantitative data was analyzed using scientific methods using the statistical package for social sciences (SPSS version 22), while qualitative data was analyzed thematically. The analysis began with descriptive statistics, which examined the demographic factors of the respondents through the use of frequencies and charts. Additionally, inferential statistics such as correlation and multiple linear regression analysis were employed to test the relationships among the variables as hypothesized in the study.</p> <p><strong>Findings:</strong> Adopting information technology in functions and organizational decision making processes was also found to have significant effect on the process of strategy implementation. In a nutshell, the organizational leadership, organizational structure, organizational culture, resource allocation and extent of IT integration in an organization influence the way strategies are implemented in organizations.</p> <p><strong>Implications to Theory, Practice and Policy</strong><strong>:</strong> Theoretically, it enriches the stakeholder theory by elucidating how different stakeholders, influenced by information technology, impact strategy implementation in the public sector, particularly in the context of a developing country. This study adds a new dimension to force field analysis by integrating IT aspects, showing how technological forces act as either drivers or barriers in strategic implementation. Practically, it provides valuable insights for managers and policymakers in Kenyan tourism agencies, highlighting how IT can be leveraged to align stakeholder interests and overcome resistance in strategy execution. For policy, it underscores the critical role of IT in modern governance and strategic management, suggesting policy reforms for enhancing IT infrastructure and capabilities in government agencies.</p> Juliana Kyalo Copyright (c) 2023 Dr. Juliana Kyalo 2023-11-24 2023-11-24 7 4 11 23 10.47672/ejt.1661 An Alarm-Based LPG Leakage Monitoring System <p><strong>Purpose:</strong> Gas leakages have posed a major safety threat in the society especially in homes. Devices for early detection of Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) popularly used in many developing countries are not so common and costly when available. This paper proposes a low-cost alarm-based LPG leakage monitoring system for home safety.</p> <p><strong>Materials and Methods:</strong> It uses MQ-6 gas sensor with PIC16F877A microcontroller circuit powered by a 9VDC battery to sustain the system even when the main power is out. The microcontroller is connected to an LCD screen and a buzzer to show the alerting part. An exhaust fan is connected at the output in order to disperse the gas away from the ignition source. Different quantities of the gas and perfume (for comparison) were measured and used for the test and the response time was observed. The system was designed and first simulated successfully using Proteus 8 before hardware implementation.</p> <p><strong>Findings:</strong> The results show that for high, medium and low concentration of LPG, the average response times obtained are 0.78s, 1.05s and 1.95s respectively. Similarly, for the perfume tested at different volumes ranging from 11ml to 29ml, the corresponding average response times range from 1.95s to 0.61s. The results show that for both tests, the average response time reduces with concentration. The higher the concentration, the shorter the time to raise the alarm. The cost analysis of the system shows that it is affordable for domestic use. Further work can involve control actuator such as solenoid to cut off the gas supply.</p> Noble Chidi Njoku Babajide Adelaja Ojo Joel Ogunyemi Copyright (c) 2023 Njoku Noble Chidi, Ojo, Babajide Adelaja , Ogunyemi Joel 2023-11-23 2023-11-23 7 4 1 10 10.47672/ejt.1658
