L'impact de la crise sur le management

Joint publication directed by Michel Kalika, Professor Emeritus at iaelyon School of Management and President of the Business Science Institute, with the contribution of 27 management professors as well as 3 doctoral students at the Business Science Institute.

This book became vital right now due to the scale, the brutality, and the suddenness of the COVID-19 crisis. We, at the Business Science Institute, an international academic organization with dedicated network for the Executive Doctorate in Business Administration, decided that we needed to develop several initiatives in collaboration with our doctoral students, managers located in more than thirty countries and our international professors.

The first series of initiatives taken aimed at collecting information from managers that have been confronted by the crisis.

The second aimed at putting the desire to rally together the teaching community of the Business Science Institute into action, given that the crisis was evidently going to question the certain aspects of organizational management, which the teachers were working on with their doctoral students.

This book is structed in four complementary parts : :

  1. Impact of the crisis : conclusions of the research of the Business Science Institute
  2. Impact of the crisis on management in the health sector;
  3. Impact of the crisis on management thought ; 
  4. Impact of the crisis on managerial decisions.
