ABSTRACT


As attacks against aid workers continue to rise in some of the world’s most violent environments, international humanitarian agencies are left with only two options, withdraw completely or apply remote management strategy. Many organizations that still want to fulfill their mission opt for remote management strategy. However, reports question the success of the strategy as it has previously encountered mixed results in Iraq, Afghanistan and Somalia. It is because of this dilemma that the current study sought to determine the effect of security management strategy on the performance of NGOs in Sudan. This study employed a descriptive research design. The study targeted an NGO operating in Sudan. The study used a formula to come up with a sample of 96 respondents in the study. Purposive random sampling was then used to select the sample of 96 respondents. The study used quantitative data gathered by use of closed ended questions. Data analysis involved both descriptive and inferential statistics. The study findings indicated that remote security management is positively and significantly related to performance of NGOs in Sudan. Based on the study findings, the study concluded that remote security management is positively and significantly related to performance of NGOs in Sudan. The study recommends that the management of NGOs operating in Sudan should put in measures to manage and improve the remote security better since it has the largest effect on performance. Among other measures, the management should make its employees understand their security responsibilities.
