The business world of today is buffeted by technological, legislative and social changes which can potentially alter, radically, organizations’ internal structure and their relationship with external stakeholders. These changes are forcing organizations to simultaneously change their business processes and the composition of their workforce. Specifically, organizations must innovate with respect to their internal processes and external products, increase the diversity of workforce to improve their long-term effectiveness and be more agile in order to adapt to an everchanging environment. Hence, the conference focuses on Organizational Metamorphosis for Innovation, Inclusion and Agility.
