Sustainable business innovations for the future: Lessons learnt from COVID-19
The emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic created a global disruption that forced many organisations in different industries to innovate their business at speed. The pandemic created a context marked by reliance upon emergent strategies rather than planned changes involving a pivot to new business innovations and operational practices. For some organisations and thought leaders, this was seen as a disruptive innovation opportunity or a challenge to transform existing business models through innovation to support business processes that were not considered a high priority earlier. The incremental or radical transformations of existing business models redefined by innovations aimed to ensure continuity and improve business activities during the pandemic, but indeed without the benefits of past experience, such risky business transformations seemed to be a daunting task given the uncertainty surrounding the nature, timing, and scale of the efforts. Thus, it is a matter of great interest for researchers, practitioners and diverse stakeholders in various industries to understand what, when and how innovations were introduced into businesses to mitigate the challenges of pandemic situations and whether these innovations would successfully sustain the businesses in the future. Keeping this in mind, the 2022 Advances in Management and Innovation Conference (AMI2022) invites researchers and practitioners to present and report their research and experiences around the theme of business and management innovations in the context of different industries during the pandemic to extend the knowledge gained during the transition, for future sustenance.
The conference theme is not only limited to sustainable management innovations but will also focus on the influence of either one or a combination of several factors that support business innovations (i.e. strategy, change readiness, resilience, adaptability ) driven by different change initiatives in one or several industrial sectors during the pandemic.
Events will include the main conference tracks, a Doctoral Colloquium and a paper development workshop.
