The theme for this year's ICoBM is Emerging New Normal for Resilient Organizations. Resilience is one of the key aspect to deal with calamities such as COVID-19, and it is known that the need for resilient organizations has tremendously increased after the recent pandemic. Organizations are now facing a reality quite different from what they were encountering just two years ago. This new reality is the New Normal of life. New Normal in organizations is embedded in disruptive strategies, disruptive technologies and disruptive innovations, all spurring the need for resilient styles of leadership, organizing and managing. Building resilience in the social and technical aspects of organizations is now the key to adapting to the challenges ahead. Recent research confirms that organizations well equipped in employing disruptive strategies and technologies have shown greater resilience during the testing time of Covid-19. From business continuity plans and crisis management to compliance and risk management, resilient organizations tend to develop a coping mechanism to counter uncertainty and crisis situations. This year's ICoBM, therefore, strives to generate and disseminate knowledge about the emerging New Normal in the context of Resilient Organizations.
