The style of interconnection between different parties, systems, equipment, concepts, or human beings plays a critical role both in our life and business today. Interface refers to such an interconnection, a common boundary at which facts, problems, considerations, theories, and practices shared by two or more parties, disciplines or fields of study.
We face many interfaces, the boundaries between Resilience & Growth objectives; Growth & Sustainability, Investors & Managers objectives; Production & Environmental protection; Owners & Employees interactions; Customers & Employees; Markets & Culture; Technology & Human involvement; Business & National Goals; Consumer & Marketer role; inter-organizational networks; and many more.
Management of these interfaces often requires resilience in securing the growth expectations. Thus, the role of manager, consultant, adviser and scholar in managing these complex interfaces is the positioned for the ICBM 2017. We open an interface at ICBM 2017, a platform for national and international scholars, and practitioners to discuss and debate the challenges of managing these interfaces, exploring the growth potential of the next era of business.
