Building Resilience for Sustainable Transition

The necessity for the development of new business models to combat the looming energy crisis, to prepare for the digital disruption, to improve supply chain transparency and security, to ensure diversity and inclusion, mental health and physical wellbeing in workplaces, generate a challenging new environment for managers across all the functional areas of an organisation. With increased risks along the supply chain, building resilience has become a pivotal topic for sustained organizational survival and growth. The conference will provide a forum for academics as well as practitioners to present research papers and discuss opportunities to improve effectiveness and innovation in organisations. The underlying intent will be to generate insights into the radical changes and develop innovative decision making models for responsible organizational performance.
