CALL FOR PAPERS

Small and medium enterprises (SMEs) constitute a major part of organizations responsible for growth rates in countries. Recent developments in the world have created new opportunities and challenges for SMEs and Entrepreneurial ventures around the globe. These developments have also intensified the need for these organizations to review their competitive contexts and strategies. Rapid technological advances, growth of the circular economy, non-ownership business models, global supply chain management complexities, environmental vulnerabilities, resources depletion, the pandemic, and recent propagation of nationalistic ideologies are just a few examples of environmental trends that are compelling small firms worldwide to redefine their strategies and growth trajectory.
