Inaugural conference of the Cyprus Centre for Business Research
KEEPING AHEAD OF CHANGE: Anticipating and Managing Change
There is nothing permanent except change (Heraclitus, 544-483 BCE)
The famous dictum of Heraclitus has never been more prescient. It can be used aptly to describe the current ever-changing competitive environment that business have to operate in nowadays. Adaptability to changing conditions has become a prerequisite for viability globally. Anticipating and managing change has become a top management priority. In light of recent developments and taking into account the challenges faced by management nowadays, the conference will explore the various dimensions of change, establishing insights on the contribution of various management fields to the purpose of creating and maintaining sustainable competitive advantage.
KEEPING AHEAD OF CHANGE, the inaugural conference of the recently-established Centre for Business Research, aims to provide a forum for the presentation and exchange of the latest research in the broad field of Business. The conference organisers and the conference’s scientific committee invite papers from academics, researchers, industry experts, and practising business leaders at a national and international level. The conference aims to bring together researchers of all stages.
The language of the conference is English and will feature papers and presentations of between 15-20 minutes each.
