Today’s world has witnessed a Black Swan event affecting every aspect of human life with major socio-economic impact. The world is undeniably facing a new, challenging and an unpredictable event with the outbreak of the pandemic. But with significant disruption comes great opportunities. The tireless researches in different domains are already at full swing for a better and more sustainable future. The need to reconstruct and be resilient and agile in a specific sustainable direction is the need of the hour. The pandemic has made every human self-sufficient and confident to fight the odds with new vigor and intelligence defining a new way of living in the ‘new normal’ of things.

According to the famous scholar Yaakov Kaufman, “When someone pushes you to the corner, push the corner away“. So in this situation, businesses require an innovative pathway to a more resilient economy across the globe. During these challenging times, renovations of old ideas to a new rebooted one or/ and new ideas from inception are the keys to business resilience and sustainability. But emphasizing resilience, i.e. the capacity for resisting, absorbing and responding, even reinventing if required, in response to fast and/or disruptive change needs companies to become agile, i.e. capacity for moving quickly, flexibly and decisively in anticipating, initiating and taking advantage of opportunities and avoiding any negative consequences of change. It is time for researchers to lead the change towards a sustainable alternative.

The Globsyn Management Journal (GMJ), multi-disciplinary in nature, indexed in EBSCO, ProQuest Database, OCLC, ABI Inform and double-blind peer reviewed journal, is a Beyond Education initiative of Globsyn Business School and has always taken up contemporary global challenging issues to deliberate on critical business, managerial and sectorial problems that would impact society and provide a robust solution.
