Organization: ISDSI
Event: ISDSI Conference
Categories: Miscellaneous
Event Date: 2018-12-27 to 2018-12-30 Abstract Due: 2018-08-31

Decision-making is at the heart of leadership. As organisations wrestle with deep and fundamental change across the business landscape, how must they prepare to take decisions that are relevant, efficient and effective? Leaders must make the best use of available resources to leverage traditional strengths and capacities to the fullest. Alongside, a host of technical, cultural, behavioural, social and environmental interdependencies can throw up new challenges and opportunities for leaders. Emerging trends and evolving technologies, among them IoT, big data analytics, AI and blockchain, will continue to disrupt current business processes, making the task of managers charged with taking decisions even more complex.  

In this context, SPJIMR, a top ranked school of management in India that works with the mission of Influencing Practice and Promoting Value Based Growth, will host the 12th Annual ISDSI Conference from December 27-30, 2018 at its campus in Mumbai. The theme of this international conference is “Data Driven Decision Making in the Digital Age”.  

The main objective of this conference is to provide a platform for academicians, researchers and practitioners to:

  • disseminate research, providing insights into the challenges, opportunities, emerging strategies and analytical tools in the domain of decision making
  • present case studies on application of tools and techniques
  • explore cutting- edge ideas, results and share experiences.
