The XVI edition of IFKAD on the theme of MANAGING KNOWLEDGE IN UNCERTAIN TIMES will be held in Rome (University of Rome Tre), Italy, 1-3 September 2021.
Our member, prof. Giovani Schiumma and his colleagues are delighted to announce the CALL FOR TRACK PROPOSALS
Deadline for track proposal submission: 30 November 2020.
The purpose of IFKAD 2021 is to understand the role of managing knowledge to support organisations to navigate uncertain times. The scale and variety of disruptions affecting businesses are unprecedented and astounding. Disruptions and overlapping crises threaten the working mechanisms of socio-cultural and economic-production ecosystems, and organisational systems are challenged to understand how they can be sustainable, keep moving forward and growing. The current coronavirus pandemic has brought to the fore a new level of uncertainty and poses difficult and even unprecedented challenges for the sustainability of organisations and communities.
The understanding of the strategies, projects and tools to manage the knowledge to navigate uncertain times is essential for survival and sustainability of any private, public and social organisation. The capacity of creating, employing and deploying knowledge is critical to protect the business and to guarantee that organisations can continuously contribute to the value creation dynamics of stakeholders’ wealth creation.
