Kazi Nazrul University (KNU) International e-Conference 2022 Advances in Business and management in the VUCA World
The business world has changed dramatically over the past few decades, and we now live in a connected society where change can be fast-paced, constant and unpredictable. A state of flux has replaced the sense of certainty, stability and familiarity that people were used to. This type of environment can be described using the “VUCA” acronym, which stands for “Volatile,” “Uncertain,” “Complex,” and “Ambiguous.”
The world, we live in, is Volatile, things are changing quickly which is beyond our control. It is Uncertain as predicting about future outcomes and impact is harder like a puzzle. It is Complex since many different, interconnected factors come into play, which cause chaos and confusion.
Finally, it is Ambiguous because of the lack of clarity and awareness about that kind of situation. The conference “INTERNATIONAL E CONFERENCE ON ADVANCES IN BUSINESS AND MANAGEMENT IN THE VUCA WORLD” organized by Department of Business Administration, Kazi Nazrul University aims to provide a platform for learners, academicians, practitioners, researchers, and industrialists from all across the world to discuss the issues, challenges & opportunities in the dynamic business environment and to point out essential measures in the present business scenario.
The e-conference aims to discuss and publish findings in the field of behavioural studies with an emphasis on studies that lead to beneficial organisational change and hopes to inspire researchers to contribute their theoretical and experimental findings in detail. Objectives are to:
Create an application of behavioral studies in various forms that aid in understanding and improving a broad variety of social operations such as making decisions, strategic planning, developing policies, changing behaviour, employee retention, team spirit, post-merger integration, optimising diversification, demographic shift etc.
Explain organisational interventions and methodologies for implementing change in workgroups, institutions, and processes.
