Management and Innovation Forum (2016)

 

The School of Management is pleased to hold the International Conference on Business Case Research (ICBCR), the first international conference organized by Centennial College. As a key part of this conference, the Management and Innovation Forum 2016 will be held on 13 December, 2016. The focuses are “Management and Innovation” and “Drucker’s Legacy in the 21st Century Management”.

Knowledge has to be improved, challenged, and increased constantly, or it vanishes. -Peter Drucker

Peter F. Drucker, the father of modern management, systematically expressed his complex management theory in a simple yet elegant way and invented many now-familiar management terms like “knowledge worker” and “management by objectives”. Drucker predicted 21st Century as a period of profound transition with more radical changes than ever, and we need to catch the wisdom of Drucker’s thoughts in this fast changing world. Joining this enlightening forum, you can learn the experiences and expertise in innovation and management art from renowned scholars and industrial practitioners around the world. It is also a valuable platform for your networking and business idea brainstorming.
