KIND ATTENTION : The last date of submission of abstract and full paper is extended to September 30, 2017


We live in the age of disruptions. This has heralded a new age of understanding based on our experience that nobody can drive straight to the future on a cruise control mode without understanding the nitty-gritty and integrity of myriad associated factors in its totality. As the organizations are becoming more uncertain, we do not know whether the future will be a continuation of the past. It may turnout to be a series of discontinuities. When the currents of the non-linear world are becoming strong, the linear thinking and approaches about organizations is slowly becoming a question mark. Thus the conference invites intellectual minds to take a leap from the linear to non-linear world of organizations and from known to unknown by examining the following areas:

  • What sort of principles will guide the success of twenty first century work organizations?
  • What is that truly binds in networked organizations? Is it merely information technology or something else that is more meaningful?
  • How does a work organization make the shift from just spreading information around a network to building new knowledge?
  • What importance technology will play to shape the future of work organizations?
  • How work organizations would balance the need for radical change with the need for strategic continuity?
  • What should leaders do to ensure that their corporate work culture will be a strategic asset rather than a change anchor to meet the future need?
  • How the roles & responsibilities of the work within the organizations will take shape?
  • How the organization’s responsibilities will be redefined?
