Conference Theme: Improving Organizations through Business Research




Organizations of today is going through great evolution and changes all over the world. These changes are related both to the aspect of company practices and to organizational theories. The interweaving of praxis and theory also marks the whole history of organizational sciences that have been nourished by multiple contributions from various disciplines and professional specializations such as Management, Marketing, Human Resource Management, Accounting, Banking, Finance, Economics and others, thus thriving on the theoretical contributions of these fields and combining them into a fruitful and far-reaching theoretical apparatus. Today the development and improvement of organizations must face the great thrust of subjectivity and therefore the divergence of behavioral models, also conveyed by the disruptive power of new technologies.


How to direct the strength of the subjects (workers, specialists of various disciplines, entrepreneurs, stakeholders, etc.) to strengthen the organizational structures of the companies and promote the change? How to direct individual behavior towards the goals of organizations, enhancing the resources deriving from the technologies and the development of knowledge in the various fields?
