Asian Business School is organizing its 6th International Conference on “VUCA World: Issues & Challenges” at its Noida campus on Saturday, 9th March 2019. The conference would be spearheaded by the Research & Development (R&D) Cell at Asian Business School that operates with the vision to become a centre of excellence in management education by focused research pursuits through an interface with industry and academia.

International Conference on “VUCA World: Issues & Challenges” is an initiative in the direction to learn, adapt and innovate ways and policies in the new global environment which will enable rapid decision-making and action. It will aid to understand how the industrial transformation is taking place as a result of an uncertain environment and its impact on rapidly changing business models; thus finally reviewing, recapitulating, and recalibrating strategies for a competitive edge in changing business context.

The theme of the conference revolves around the world’s changing business environment in the Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous (VUCA) World that is putting more challenges for the business leaders than ever before. In this scenario, putting the dimensions of growth together seems to be the key to unlock, not just how business can win in a VUCA world, but also to rediscover its true role in society.

It is presumed that winning in a VUCA world requires the ability to simultaneously manage both the short-term and the long-term goals of a business. In turbulent and fast-changing times, businesses need to be anchored in a long-term destination while also dynamically managing the short-term. The organizational complexities have been accentuated by change of demographics, customer profile, localization, and innovations with pressure on sustainability with innovation. When outside world becomes uncertain, it becomes important to look inside and have a sense of meaning, a clear picture of your purpose in the world as an individual and as an organization.

This International conference is thus an attempt to find new, interesting facts and dimensions about the VUCA World and how it is interlinked to the current environment. It has been conceived to explore the new dimensions in management and the leadership required for navigating the VUCA world successfully. It would provide the right platform for executives, academicians and researchers to reflect, review and work out strategies for reducing workplace problems and issues through effective VUCA management roles and techniques.

Thus, academicians, practitioners, research scholars and students have been invited to submit their research papers. Some indicative areas related to VUCA world have been spelled out in the invite, although submissions are welcome on any other topics aligned with the broad theme of the conference.
