ABOUT THE CONFERENCE
The whole world right now is going through the phase of extensive transition to face the challenges put forth by the Covid- 19 pandemic. The world as a whole is in a muddled state, witnessing a crisis never known before, aﬀecting considerably every aspect of human life. As a response to the emerging issues and challenges, the world is compelled to adapt itself to the 'new normal' to survive and sustain in this unprecedented scenario.
Economic activities are going through turbulent times of disruption and change, fatalities and uncertainties, expulsions and unemployment on one hand and on the other adapting and innovating to stand tall like never before. Change is indeed inevitable for development, growth and sustainability.
In the succeeding scenario, longer-term strategic changes are needed to navigate the competitive landscape to manage the challenges posed by environmental, technological, socio-political, and institutional changes. Thus, enterprises need new and more ﬂexible strategies to confront the fuzzy road ahead.
The pandemic has also accelerated innovation, development of new technologies, which further dominates the discourse on entrepreneurship. Innovation has driven the creation of new technologies, the development of new products and services, changes in processes, the development of new business models, and new approaches to work itself.
In these challenging times, the Prestige Institute of Management and Research (PIMR), Indore provides a platform for intellectuals from academia and industry to participate in its 16th International conference on the theme “Innovative and Adaptive Management Strategies for Sustainable Entrepreneurial, Business and Societal Growth”. As every challenge and destruction paves the way for innovation, adaptability, and sustainability we anticipate the emerging intellectual researchers can provide solutions and strategies to the business community, entrepreneurs, and society at large. We hope that this virtual conference will help in proposing and adopting a set of innovative strategies in the changed global scenario to enhance economic growth, human wellbeing, sustainability and prosperity.
