The 17th International Conference on Business Excellence
Rethinking business: Sustainable leadership in a VUCA world
23 – 25 March 2023
“The best way to predict the future is to create it.” – Abraham Lincoln
Mini Track Chair:
The interdependencies between the economy and security have become indissoluble, while the ability to decipher the security environment is a fundamental prerequisite for anticipating regional or global economic trends. Security is an increasingly complex, sophisticated and dynamic concept that has undergone a real metamorphosis in the last decade. Assymetric and hybrid challenges have taken the place of conventional threats, making the new means of waging a war increasingly difficult to anticipate and counter. Information warfare, economic warfare, cyber warfare or hybrid aggression can cause as much damage as a full-scale war, but without a single bullet being fired. The technological revolution, the acceleration of digitization and the automation of systems have created opportunities and risks alike. The pandemic was a catalyst that accelerated many evolutionary processes, generating vulnerabilities on the other hand. Globalization, in addition to the multiple benefits, has led to an internationalization of crises, so that by relativizing geography, distant crises generate effects as if they were unfolding on our doorstep. All these phenomena must be fully understood in order to be able to anticipate and respond accordingly.
