Sixth Biennial Conference of the Indian Academy of Management
Call for Papers
CONFERENCE DATES: January 2-4, 2020
CONFERENCE VENUE: Indian Institute of Management Tiruchirappalli
ARCHITECTING INDIAN MANAGEMENT SCHOLARSHIP IN THE ERA OF DISRUPTION
The management landscape world over is witnessing a complete transformation in view of the increasing adoption of artificial intelligence, machine learning, internet of things, industry 4.0, robotic process automation, fintech, blockchain, analytics and so forth. These recent developments are making several existing management theories and frameworks relatively less relevant to explain, understand and predict the real world practices. In tune with this, there is a need for architecting management scholarship as well. With this context in mind, the Sixth Biennial Conference of the Indian Academy of Management has set an objective of liberating the management thought process and architecting management scholarship in this era of disruption. The conference is being hosted by the Indian Institute of Management Tiruchirappalli in association with the Indian Academy of Management.
