Call for Papers: Business Growth in Complex and Hostile Economies

A special issue of International Journal of Business Competition and Growth

Presently, it is widely known that innovation, in broad terms, is a possible solution to the difficulties brought about by the global, complex and hostile economy we live in. It is important to note, however, that the search for possible solutions for business growth (e.g. innovative strategies, models and tools) is not without its own difficulties.

In this special issue, we aim to explore the conception of business models and competition tools that might assist us in supporting decisions and overcoming growth hindrances.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
  • Business competition models and tools
  • Challenges in business growth
  • Competitive strategies
  • Decision models for competitive gains
  • Economic issues driving market competition
  • Innovation-led competition
  • Management of competitive forces
  • Performance-linked competitive strategies
  • Social drivers of competition
  • Systems thinking and business dynamics
  • Technology-led competition
