dc.description.abstract This dissertation assessed the effect of centralized management system on business performance focusing on Imalaseko Investment Ltd in Tanzania. Specifically, this study intended to evaluate how centralized management system affects the company business performance particularly on customers lease agreement, decision making, on apartment maintenance program. Also, to analyze how centralized management system affects the company business performance on marketing strategies. Using a descriptive research design, stratified sampling technique was used to sample 100 respondents, stratified into five strata of landlord, tenants, apartment managers, service providers and brokers. Likewise, structured questionnaires and interviews were used to collect required data and later analyzed using descriptive statistics. Generally, findings revealed that, a positive relationship exists between centralized management system and business performance due to the fact that, it has facilitated customers lease agreement by 53%, apartment maintenance 59%, decision making by 70%, and marketing strategies were neutral. However, study also revealed that, centralized management system causes bad business performance particularly on apartment maintenance program. On insufficient market strategies, the study revealed neutral position among the respondents surveyed. This study concludes that, centralized management system does not negatively affect business performance, but rather it fosters business particularly customers lease agreement, as well as marketing strategies. However, the system slows down decision making process thus affecting company marketing strategies. Findings have implications to the company [policies] and academia. At the company level, a need to revise the centralized system is crucial so as to eliminate problems relating to insufficient marketing strategies and decision making. Similarly, the academia may also be informed by these findings on the complexity of centralization, management and performance as noted in this study. en_US
