1st International Workshop on Enterprise Transformation
Organizations of all sizes and complexity in virtually all industries (e.g. healthcare, manufacturing, energy, education, telecom, etc.) need to continuously adapt to changes in the global environment, economies, and markets. This adaptation requires solutions that consider the role of organizations, people, knowledge, information, processes, strategy, and technology. This holistic approach integrates the needs of multiple stakeholders to create value and enable enterprise transformation. Scholarly research in enterprise transformation can be found across many disciplines including management, industrial and systems engineering, information systems, organizational behavior, strategy, marketing, political science, economics, sociology, and many others.
The purpose of the first international workshop, hosted by the Tennenbaum Institute at Georgia Tech, was to bring together a diverse academic community to stimulate a focused discussion on enterprise transformation research, network and collaborate with other researchers, discuss cross-disciplinary theories, frameworks, methodologies, and approaches, and understand the spectrum of possible publication outlets. The workshop included an exciting research slam, a connect-the-dots activity, and a session on meet-the-editors of the Journal of Enterprise Transformation.
