PUBLICATION PARTNERS IN PRISM 2023



Padma Shri Dr. Pritam Singh

Dr. Pritam Singh has been a scholar, thinker, and academic leader par excellence. Dr. Singh's career in management education spanned over five decades, during which he served as the Director of several reputed business schools in India, including the Indian Institute of Management (IIM) Lucknow; MDI Gurgaon; and IMI Delhi. He brought Indian philosophy, and Indian thought to the global stage through his lectures delivered at various fora like the Chambers of Commerce in Holland, France, Germany, Greece, Russia, UK, USA

The constantly evolving Indian business landscape underlay leadership challenges and makes it crucial to revisit them and acquire the required skills and traits. One of the most significant challenges that leaders face, is managing change. Leaders need to be able to adapt to new situations quickly and effectively, whether it’s implementing new technologies or responding to shifts in the market. Consistent with this, the major leadership actions are dedicated to developing talent, effective communication, trust building, efficient decision-making, delegating responsibilities, and balancing short-term & long-term goals. Overall, effective leadership requires a combination of skills, including communication, delegation, decision-making, and adaptability, to address challenges like – focusing on emotional intelligence, adapting to changing times, attention to employee well-being, diversity & inclusion, focusing on ethics & values, and developing future leaders. By addressing these challenges, leaders can become more effective and help their organizations thrive in today’s fast-paced business landscape....

In the last few years, India has seen a significant augmentation in the digitalization of the operationality of businesses thereby, leading to a number of challenges for organizations of all sizes. The integral challenges associated with the digitalization of organizations relate to security (to protect themselves against cyber threats), recruiting skilled digital talent, providing seamless & personalized customer experience, data management to drive decision-making & innovation, and providing agility and flexible approaches to business operations and decision-making. Consequently, the plethora of challenges related to leadership and digitalization has opened the black-box of issues concerning reimagining the future of business so that every innovative action is focused on sustainable development goals and sustainability at large. While management education in particular and academics in general have made substantial contributions to the spectacular progress thus far, reimagining is necessary to address the aforementioned difficulties in a post-pandemic world. Put differently, to address the above-mentioned challenges, there must be an influential role of efficient leadership, and a strong organizational structure acquainted with the latest technological interventions for contributing towards sustainability.

The 3rd Pritam Singh Memorial Conference will bring together important stakeholders from academia, business, regulators, policymakers, and multilateral agencies to discuss “Reimagining the Future of Business:The Challenges of Leadership, Digitalization, and Sustainability.” The current corporate environment is turbulent and dynamic, necessitating innovation to keep up with the times. The corporate world, driven by huge organizations as well as small and medium-sized businesses, must transform and adapt to the new normal in the post-pandemic world. It would have to comprise not only innovative solutions to address complex problems, but will also require a high degree of empathy and ethical standards. Therefore, the 3rd edition of the PRISM Conference will, offer insights on future growth in a sustainable, technology-driven, and effectively led manner.

We seek high-quality research papers/ articles from scholars and industry practitioners on the non-exhaustive list of conference themes and tracks. Impactful articles on other related topics are also encouraged.
