Annual International Research Conference (9-11 December, 2022)

Energized by the success of past doctoral workshop, IIM Lucknow aims to create a forum where best scholars from India and abroad can define the future course of management thought and practice. Globally we are witnessing increased interest in many management and policy level initiatives which require looking at national and global developments from different perspectives. Understanding of effective firm operations and societal well- being is critical for overall growth in an economy. In an increasingly unpredictable era of rapidly changing technology, collective crisis such as Covid-19, globalization and rise of social media managing robust supply- chains, efficient production, marketing, financial management and employee engagement has become even more challenging. This three-day conference will give platform to exchange thought provoking ideas and issues in various business functions and domains of management. The forum will emphasize capacity building to help render research into effective management practices. To encourage greater collaboration between researchers and industry, the conference will develop a collaborative platform to identify research priorities and suggest practically relevant emergent solutions. We look forward to seeing you at IIM lucknow, Noida campus in December 2022.
