The International Conference on Knowledge, Culture and Change in Organisations
The primary interest of the Management Conference is knowledge-based social and economic change. Driven by globalisation and advances in information and communications technologies, this change has been characterised in terms of emerging information/knowledge societies and a global knowledge-based economy.
The conference will offer a comprehensive overview of current thinking in the area broadly described as knowledge management. Its perspectives will range from big picture analyses in keynote addresses by internationally recognised experts in the field of management, to detailed case studies of management practice. It will traverse a broad terrain, from theory and analysis to practical strategies for action.
Now emerging as a major international event in the field of management, the Management Conference 2003 was held in Penang, Malaysia and hosted by the Universiti Sains Malaysia, and in 2004 at the University of Greenwich, London, UK.
