    Conference Theme: "Developing Resilient Organizations"
    COVID-19 has highlighted the inadequacy of crisis management of organizations across various sectors of economy and industry. Why are some organizations more successful in coping with, and responding to, the complexity, volatility and uncertainty of the current business environment? Why do some organizations facing adversity focus on the negative, whilst others successfully seize the opportunity to adapt and change?

    The workshop will focus on novel contributions in following broad areas relating to observations and expectations from present and future resilient organizations. Original papers on the following indicative topics, but not limited to, are invited:
    • Resilience in the aftermath of COVID-19

    • Financial implications of resilience
    • Ensuring operational and supply chain continuity during crisis
    • Tiding organizations through business and economy slumps
