Changing Perspective of Management:
Revisit the Existing and Explore the Novel Ideas
Call for Paper
Asian society has a variety of practices, beliefs, social roles, norms, expressions, forms of organization and conflicts on various issues like political, legal, economic models, which exhibit various sorts of managing people in organizations. Therefore, even similar strategies are perceived as producing different outcomes because of the influence of several contextual variables: industrial relation system, labor market, strategic human resource management practices, organizational strategies, changing business environment etc. The cultural context of Asia: emphasis on power distance, paternalism, collectivism, and social relations play a prominent role in raising unique style of leadership, attitudes, behavior and distinct organizations such as family business. Besides these, a number of significant global developments are taking place that have serious implications for organization and workforce management. The increasing level of FDI, cross- border alliances, business process outsourcing, and growth of multinational in this region have raised the question as how best to manage in this turbulent times.
Western society, powerful nation-states, large multinational organizations, global business leaders, and even free market ideologies are being discredited and blamed for the recent global economic crisis that swiftly spread throughout the world and they question the risks and challenges of globalization. The global economic crisis-2008 challenges management researchers to consider whether our research and knowledge provide contribution to the wellbeing of the society at large in which we live and work. This has not only affected organizational live of the globe also challenged efforts of globalization that started in the 1980s.
We all can contribute to this task regardless of our specific areas of inquiry since these questions span multi-disciplinary boundaries and reflect the very core of our scholarly mission to inform the field of management in this changing perspective.
