Abstract

The study investigated the relationship between Pro-activeness and Organizational Survival. The study adopted the cross sectional survey design, as the on a snapshot basis. The accessible population of the study, consists of 120 owners of hotels in Bayelsa State, Nigeria. The instrument was validated with Exploratory Factor Analysis, and preliminary analysis were performed to check normality, linearity and equality of variance. A sample size of 92 was determined, using the Krejcie and Morgan’s formula, with an adjusted sample size of 110 owners of hotels. Questionnaire was the main instrument for data collection and data obtained from 100 retrieved and usable copies of the questionnaires were analyzed by means of the SPSS to generate descriptive statistics.The Structural Equation Modelling was deployed, by means of Analysis and Moments of Structures software, to test hypotheses, using a reflective, reflective and recursive model approach to predict the dependent variable. The results revealed that Pro-activeness has a positive significant relationship with the measures of Organizational Survival; Competitiveness and Adaptability. The study recommends that the drive for pro-activeness should stem primarily from the organizations capabilities and its ability to sustain and manage such change functions, either by upgrading its systems or by acquiring the required expertise or techniques for its operations. The study contributes to knowledge by providing empirical evidence of the relationship between pro-activeness and organizational survival, by means of the structural equations modelling. Hotel management should be pro-active as to adopt orientations that project the organization ahead of competitors, given that change and competition are inevitable.

Keywords: pro-activeness, organizational survival, competitiveness, adaptability, hotels.
