CALL FOR PAPERS
Business Excellence and Management journal is pleased to announce the launch of
a Special Issue entitled Damage and Hope while Living with COVID-19: Back to
the Roots of Management to Achieve Business Excellence.
For more than one year we have struggled, we have fought
against COVID-19 and sometimes, we won. However, the “pandemic war” is not over
yet. We can see the light at the end of the tunnel, but it seems that there is
still a long way until we achieve that light.
What started as a novelty and curiosity, now became a
reality. We understood that the entire world has to adapt to a new era. Every
economy and every business sector has to operate within the limits imposed by
The world has changed, and implicitly, the global economy
has changed. Some managers have revised their business, others closed their
companies, while others have taken advantage to open new enterprises.
Even if the entire business sector has been challenged, so
far it has triumphed. New companies have risen and the existing ones have
readjusted their work where needed.
We have discovered a new era - the digitalization era -
and realised that now, more than ever, the business sector should redirect its
actions towards information technology.
So, we offer you a moment of reflection, a moment of
returning to the roots of management by continuing the „Damage and Hope” series
started last year, as the aim of this Special Issue is to present how different
economic sectors and companies coped with the effects of the pandemic and how
they strive to conquer the new digital era. Moreover, it will illustrate the
economic future that COVID-19 shaped.
Thus, the research topics of this Special Issue may
include subjects on (but are not limited to): the post covid state of the
companies, digital transformations, the level of the economic fallout across the
countries, data analysis and data predictions, company performances, the level
of sustainability across industries, risk management, new management in times of
crisis, different management in a different world, transforming management and
business excellence, the future of business excellence, the impact of the
pandemic on the economy, markets, finances, industries, people psychology,
education, universities, social development, companies, governments etc.
We consider this subject of great interest as well as the
research on this topic being very important. Thus, we strongly encourage
researchers, professors, students, engineers, academics, and industry
professionals from all over the world to present their current observations and
analysis by submitting their research in our special issue. Qualitative and
