This decade has transformed how work, education, and business are being executed. Managers have digitized their companies (E-working), educators have transformed physical institutions/classrooms into digital platforms of learning (E-learning), and banks & financial institutions launched digital outreach to clients (E-business). In fact, the digital transformation is not limited to businesses, but it is spread out among individuals and brands. CERE 2022 explores the research opportunities in the digital decade and the current transition to e-learning, e-business, and e-working to understand transformation from physical to digital presence.

As we anticipate the 82nd Annual Meeting of the Academy of Management, many organizations and the world’s social structures have been vastly challenged, and, in some cases devastated, by the COVID-19 global pandemic and the broad social unrest of the last couple of years. The resulting uncertainty has stunned and shaken us all. Governments became polarized as millions of people lost their lives during the COVID 19 pandemic while riots over social inequity swept the world. The events that have shaken the world make it clear that if it affects one of us, it affects all of us. While governments have played a key role in responding to these world events, business organizations have been important in leading the world from darkness to better days. As the world emerges from the dark days of the recent past and a new normal takes place, collaboration and cooperation between business organizations, managers, and stakeholders will be of utmost importance.
What will business organizations look like in the new normal? While the spreading uncertainty challenged many organizations and social structures, several lessons were nonetheless learned. The innovative strides made during these last couple of years illustrate that business has the capacity to address world problems at a pace and scale that few would have predicted. During these last two years, disparities around the world and within countries were laid bare. However this period also led to a new awareness for organizations and managers as well as scholars of management; this could be an opportunity to reset organizational practices that enable the creation of new future organizational arrangements.
Business organizations, managers, and stakeholders will be challenged by society as perhaps never before in history. So too will scholars of management be challenged. In many parts of the world, society increasingly expects business organizations to help solve problems of environmental degradation, inequality, and poverty. There seems to be a growing awareness of the vital role of business organizations, managers, and stakeholders in tackling societal challenges including environmental sustainability; inter-generational trade-offs where future generations cannot make their voices heard today; and issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion. And business organizations and their managers are beginning to respond. Still, many challenges lie ahead for business and for us the scholars who study and inform management. This transition from the past two years to a better future leads to the following questions:
To what extent is there a need to create future institutions, relationships, systems, and processes that are different from the past? To what extent do these structures in some way already exist and thus merely need to be improved upon?
What skills will business organizations and managers of the future need?
How can business organizations, managers, and stakeholders deal with prevailing uncertainty while responding to predictable situations in what might be ongoing transitions from one to the other?
How can business organizations, managers, and stakeholders develop and enhance capabilities to anticipate and agilely respond to pandemics, other world-wide concerns, and new challenges?
Will business organizations and governments need to work more closely together in the future?
What will the future of work look like?
These and many more questions will need to be examined as we move towards a new normal. What, where, how, when, and why will business organizations, managers, and stakeholders seek to adapt to what exists or create a world in which we will all be better off together? That is the task set for the Academy of Management Annual Meeting 2022 program.
Innovation in Africa is Shaping the World’s Future
This year’s conference will explore how innovations across various sectors in Africa can influence the global economy. What role does African innovation play in shaping the global future? How do current ventures on the continent position Africa to become a leader in the global economy? At this conference we would like to challenge the narrative that “Africa is the future” and explore whether “Africa is now.” We will welcome diverse perspectives on Africa’s unique opportunities and challenges as our speakers discuss what they see as Africa’s role in today’s economy.
We are honored to welcome Yemi Osinbajo, Vice President of Nigeria, and Tunde Folawiyo, Chairman of NBA Africa and Folawiyo Group, as our keynote speakers. Join us as we explore how sectors in Blockchain/Crypto, FinTech, Clean Energy, Entrepreneurship, and others can make a lasting impact on economic growth across the continent.
Events to Look Forward To
This year we will have speakers who are creating innovative ways of tackling challenges in healthcare, fintech, clean energy, cryptocurrencies, investing (private equity and venture capital), infrastructure & cities and entrepreneurship. In addition to our lineup of amazing speakers and panelists, SABF will also be hosting a Venture Pitch Competition on April 17th. Come hear from inspiring and innovative founders as they pitch to early-stage investors from across the globe.
A Long History of Cultivating Forward-Looking Conversation
This year marks the 15th anniversary of the Stanford Africa Business Forum. In 2007, the forum theme was “Fostering Entrepreneurial Activities in Africa”. Its objective was to portray Africa in a more positive light than that more commonly seen in the media and create awareness of the diverse and burgeoning opportunities. The first forum was organized by a group of enthusiastic students headed by Wilson Irungu Nyakera and Kwame Ansong-Dwamena.
Though the theme has changed from year to year, the motivation behind the forum hasn’t changed. The forum has always been aimed at creating awareness of the opportunities on the African continent and bring together Africans and friends of Africa from the continent and the diaspora to engage on the most important issues affecting the continent’s growth.
