- Innovation and Entrepreneurship in Management Education

- ESG to SDG – The Roadmap for a Sustainable World
In October 2005, the United Nations Environment Program Initiative in the Freshfields Report coined the acronym ESG – Environmental, Social, and Governance, respectively. In 2015, all United Nations Member States adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development that provided a shared blueprint – at the heart of which are the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), considered to be an urgent call for action by all countries in a global partnership. The entire gamut of ESG and SDG is obviously overwhelming. The deliberations of the 6th International Vision Seminar 2022, based on the theme ‘ESG to SDG – The Roadmap for a Sustainable World’, will therefore be focused on certain aspects of direct relevance to business and industry.

- Integrated Management for Business Sustainability in a VUCA World
An Integrated Management System (IMS) integrates all the systems and procedures of an organization into one full structure, allowing an organization to function as a single unit with consolidated goals. In an environment, which is overwhelmingly influenced by VUCA (Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity & Ambiguity), it becomes essential for organizations not only to navigate, but also to manage their strategies to survive first and then grow. Organizations that view and exploit the opportunities and possibilities for change through IMS in the VUCA market conditions will not merely endure, but also successfully compete and grow in the face of the range of emerging adverse and hyper-competitive business conditions.
- Business and Sustainable Development
Today, on one side, the industry is faced with enormous opportunities poised by the rise in the aspirations and disposable incomes of around 4.5 billion middle-class population spanning BRICS nations; while on the other side we are facing businesses that do not have the potential to become resilient to change.
- Changing Business Scenario & Evolving Management Practices
As we stand at the juncture of this new millennium, business and industry stands on the sharp edge of double-sided sword. Change is engulfing us like never before; older paradigms are fast outfacing newer ones. Survival of the fittest has long become extinct, and survival of the most innovative is slowly giving way to an emerging paradigm ‘survival of the most adaptable’. At the business forefront, challenges are abound: boundaries between industries are falling leading to convergence, product life-cycles are increasingly becoming shorter, technologies are proliferating in a flat world, innovations disrupting existing industries and a lot more.
- e-Applicability of Research in Management Decision-Making
Businesses today are becoming more complex, faster and less predictable. Environmental challenges have been a conspicuous and persistent driver of innovation in business organizations. The changing environmental challenges have forced many corporate behemoths to realign their business strategies, so that they suit the internal as well as the external environments. Innovation induced by environmental issues not only yields advantages from an ecological standpoint, but also from an economic and strategic point of view. The conference focuses on the changing nature of work which is increasingly knowledge based, cognitively complex, time-pressurized and demands high technological competence. Today’s workplace focuses on team-based collaborative work which has to be undertaken in a far more competitive environment than ever before.
