Call For Papers

The new millennium is characterized by fragmentation of markets, short life-cycle of products, and intense competition. The business environment of the 2nd decade of the new millennium and beyond shows no signs of slowing down in radical discontinuous change and fast pace, global orientation, importance of service, Internet boost, knowledge intensity and innovation, and global market entry of small entrepreneurial firms. As leading edge continues to reside in firm’s ability to leverage and utilize knowledge, innovate, and act entrepreneurially, SMEs, family businesses and service organizations around the world and the developing world in particular (especially the GCC) must undergo strategy rethink.

In the new economy, organizations that have honed the skills of managing knowledge and developing value-adding innovations would compete successfully. Creating and sustaining knowledge and innovations are key outcomes of inter-organizational collaborations and relationships, particularly for SMEs which lack the resources to develop such capabilities internally. Research into these dynamics and processes are of particular interest. Also the current growth in domestic outsourcing, offshoring, franchising, non-ownership services, public-private sector partnership, and other forms of business relationships and models involving entrepreneurial SMEs and family businesses need more researcher attention. ‘GCSMES-6’ would bring together researchers, practitioners and policy makers to deliberate on these and other issues around the conference theme.
