Nowadays, innovation appears as one of the main driving force for organizational success. Despite the above fact, its impact on the propensity of an organization to develop and sustain a competitive advantage has not yet received sufficient empirical investigation. “Rethinking how we live and work in the midst of the dramatic technological changes occurring all around us is vitally important,” Professor Ivison says.
We are living through the emergence of a new industrial revolution, one where artificial intelligence, quantum computing and other technologies that haven’t even been invented yet will have far reaching consequences for not just our economy but our society and culture.
We are in an era where we have not just the leading scientists and engineers helping to drive this extraordinary innovation, working also very closely with our industry partners, but also researchers in the humanities and social sciences who can help us understand and also shape the human dimensions of these challenges. Today, we need innovators more than any time before. Every organization and business is feeling the impact of globalization, migration, technological and knowledge revolutions, and climate change issues. Innovation will bring added value and widen the employment base. Innovation is imperative if the quality of life in these trying circumstances is to improve.
This conference will bring academicians and researchers from diverse backgrounds on one platform to discuss innovation and help the state in communicating the same to the people. The purpose of this conference is to enhance the existing work done by focusing on the antecedents of innovation and its impact on competitive advantage.
The conference is open for academicians, Management Practitioners, Consultants, Policy makers, Entrepreneurs, Ph.D. Scholars and students of management, commerce, science, humanities and social sciences from all over the country and overseas.
