Call for Papers
President, International Institute of Management
In today’s digital revolution,
a variety of technical, economic and market-driven forces have converged to
present a fundamental challenge for public policy and business leaders.
The emergence of global
markets, worldwide alliances, outsourcing and international competition are
changing the face of business. The birth of the internet and global small
business enterprise, the rapid change of new technological development,
the automation of the global supply chain, the dramatic reduction of lead times
for new product development, tele-working, and decentralization of business
organizations, plus the continuous fragmentation and consolidation of markets, have all placed greater pressure on
policy makers and CEOs to expand their firms’ knowledge and gain a sustainable
competitive advantage. Therefore, what is needed is
a new management thinking and an adaptive business model; a new set of concepts,
principles and strategies that will help guide policy makers and business
managers on how to organize and operate their businesses in the new economy. The
ways in which senior executives allocate, manage and position the new digital
assets and knowledge resources will have a strong bearing on the firm’s ability to compete
successfully in today’s global digital economy.
The institute invites digital economy
experts, consultants and professors to participate in a worldwide collaborative
research project on digital economy. The
results of this project will be published in a book containing a selection of
best practices papers
that discuss the issues, implications and results of key national and corporate
studies dealing with the management of business in the new digital economy.
The study sections range from
issues related to information and communication technology to organizational frameworks for enterprise and economic development.

economy technical concepts for managers and provides a framework for
