The primary objective of our Managers Roundtable events is to advance "Cross-Cultural Leadership Decision Making and Organisational/Institutional Development" as a new field of knowledge. Thus, the managers roundtable sessions are used as a platform to disserminate different cross-cultural leadership decision making applied research knowledge, tools, frameworks, models etc and demonstrate how these can enhance organisational and institutional development.
The purpose of working papers, in addition to that of positioning the research on "Cross-Cultural Leadership Decision Making and Organisational/Institutional Development" as a new field in a wider existing management and leadership decision making and organisational/institutional development knowledge, working papers contains case studies and research findings which help to justify how this new field is relevant to organisational and institutional development operating a cross-cultured, knowledge based and volatile, uncertain, complex, ambiguous (VUCA) context.
Finally, while these working papers can be used as references by other researchers and scholars, our primary aim of making them public is to make sure that they are available to our stakeholders and conference participants ahead of our conferences, seminars and meetings. We do believe that, when participants and stakeholders have read them before our meetings and conferences, they will have an advanced understanding of this field and hence it can help to trigger criticisms, bring new insights and also stimulate discussions.
