Conference on Systems Engineering Research 2013

Addressing Societal Challenges with Next-Generation Systems!

First International Workshop on Enterprise Transformation

Monday, March 18, 2013 - 08:00 to 17:00


Tennenbaum Institute, Georgia Institute of Technology


Organizations of all sizes and complexity in virtually all industries (e.g. healthcare, manufacturing, energy, education, telecom, etc.) need to continuously adapt to changes in the global environment, economies, and markets. This adaptation requires solutions that consider the role of organizations, people, knowledge, information, processes, strategy, and technology. This holistic approach integrates the needs of multiple stakeholders to create value and enable enterprise transformation.

Scholarly research in enterprise transformation can be found across many disciplines including management, industrial and systems engineering, information systems, organizational behavior, strategy, marketing, political science, economics, sociology, and many others.

The purpose of this first international workshop is to bring together this diverse academic community to stimulate a focused discussion on enterprise transformation research, network and collaborate with other researchers, discuss cross-disciplinary theories, frameworks, methodologies, and approaches, and understand the spectrum of possible publication outlets. The workshop will include a session on meet-the-editors of the Journal of Enterprise Transformation.

The outcome and lessons learned from this 1-day workshop will be published in a special issue of the Journal of Enterprise Transformation sometime in 2014.


The program is now available.
