About the Conference

The world is changing fast and so have business practices. The world is witnessing production processes that are more decentralized, more digitalized, and artificial intelligence-focused. The disruption caused by technological innovations is almost an ongoing process. On one hand, the 4th industrial revolution is progressing rapidly taking technological innovations to a new height, on the other hand, the pandemic and the Russia-Ukraine war are disturbing the global economic order. On the social front, widening inequality of income and wealth distribution is staring into our eyes and at the same time rapidly improved education level has opened up opportunities for the masses. Rapid climate change is posing new challenges for organizations to reduce carbon footprints by adopting the sustainable practice.

Businesses are rapidly adjusting to this dynamic business environment by adopting innovative practices for every aspect of their operations. Interface with investors, consumers as well as employees has changed thanks to technology-driven market forces. Decision-making is becoming more data-driven. The current globalized world with constantly changing technological innovations has opened new markets and forged the potential for new business models that were once unthinkable. Unicorns with no asset base and service providers without employees on the roll are exemplifying the phenomenon. With the growth in digital commerce, there has been an emergence of hyper-local delivery systems. Employment relations have changed with the rise of the gig economy. Attracting and retaining a talented and diverse workforce that can tune in with the organization's philosophy by readily accepting challenges is one of the biggest challenges for organizations. The trends suggest that the 5th industrial revolution is already knocking on the door that encompasses the notion of harmonious human-machine collaborations, with a specific focus on the well-being of multiple stakeholders.

Business organizations must consider a plethora of these concerns while reconsidering changing relationships with profit. Organizations today are adopting innovative practices in all their operational aspects to deal with these challenges. This conference aims to provide a platform to researchers to present their work on the practices of the new age businesses, associated issues and challenges faced.
