Making an Impact through Business and Economic Transformation

The issue of transformation will always be a universal challenge in determining the sustainability of a business. Organizational route towards a successful transformation is never an easy journey. Often it entails the support from internal as well as external key people since the voyage is usually filled with uncertainties. These issues have attracted many researchers to conduct studies that document the ways to further assist the growth of these organizations through both business and economic transformations. GCBER2013 is a forum designed to bring together researchers and practitioners to deliberate on several issues around the conference theme. In addition, it also serves as an avenue for knowledge to be shared by both the academia and the industries. It is a collaboration deemed necessary in our efforts to ensure sustainable nation development in the future. Thus, the conference committee invites submission of both theoretical and empirical extended abstracts for presentation at the conference based on the following topics:

MANAGEMENT:  CSR, Ethics and Governance o Creative Thinking, Creativity and Innovation o Cross Cultural Issues o Environmental Quality Management and Sustainability o Human Resource Management o ICT and Innovation o International Business o Internationalisation of Small Firms o Knowledge Management and Education o Leadership o Supply Chain Logistics Management o Entrepreneurship o Tourism and Hospitality o Business Law
