21st Nirma International Conference on Management (NICOM) 11-13 January, 2018

“Societal and Organisational Transformation through Strategic and Technological Interventions” 

“We always overestimate the change that will occur in the next two years and underestimate the change that will occur in the next ten. Don’t let yourself be lulled into inaction.” – Bill Gates

Change is the only constant in the world. Organisations always pass through turbulent times, with accelerated pace of change and unpredictable environment. In current VUCA world, there is a growing need to document, discuss and learn about strategies needed to convert changes and challenges into opportunities and staying resilient.
During disruption, majority of stakeholders are more concerned with survival than with breaking new ground. But visionary leaders leverage the rough period for innovation, fresh thinking and even growth. Not only businesses but entire society has been witnessing significant transformations in last two decades.
Technology is one of the determinants for the societal and organizational transformation. Under this backdrop, this conference will cover the metamorphosis in the society as well as the organisations as a result of changing macro and micro environments, leadership, strategy and technology. It can result in emergence of some broad principles that can help in sustaining or expediting the process of transformation. NICOM 2018 will provide platform for thought leaders academics and practitioners to deliberate on the strategic and technological innovations that will dictate the transformations in organizations and society.
