Business agility has gathered much attention and interest in the management world, in response to the high uncertainty and fast change brought by changing social norms, (de)globalization, climate change, and digital disruption. COVID has accelerated this interest. In the academic literature, the concept of agility, both as an overall 'capacity to react quickly to rapidly changing circumstances' and as a 'set of specific tools and methods,' has gained importance.We are calling for papers for a special issue in California Management Review to enrich our understanding of the different facets and layers of business agility, including those related to international strategy and management.
The special issue is co-edited by Prof. Julian Birkinshaw (London Business School), Prof. Christiane Prange (Tongji University) and Prof. Stéphane JG Girod (IMD)
You can find the call for papers here: https://cmr.berkeley.edu/assets/documents/paper-calls/cmr_special_issue_business_agility.pdf
The deadline for submitting is August 31, 2021. For any question and submission, please email us at CMRbusinessagility@gmail.com
Thank you for your consideration.
