From the Paper:

"In establishing a greater presence on Kava, the management of the company will have to undertake training and development programs in order to remove the language barrier. This is a critical consideration when it comes to building an organizational culture based on ownership, responsibility and accountability. Employees of the company on Kava must be able to see how their work relates to the strategic focus of the organization. This is the only way to maintain the motivation of the employees. According to the report, the island country is frequently hit by natural disasters. This will have a negative effect on employee morale in terms of the employees' expectations on company profitability. Local employees are also in the best position to determine what the effective strategies are likely to be. Therefore, in terms of setting a new direction for the company, local employees will have to be involved in the decision making process. This level of high involvement cannot be facilitated unless the management has built an effective communications structure. This objective can only be met by training the local employees on how to communicate in English."
