Small and medium-sized firms have always played a key role in the real estate industry, whose value chain includes several activities ranging, for example, from construction to asset, property and facility management.
As far as the globalisation process is concerned, real estate management is, to date, undoubtedly fundamental, as further evidenced by the latest prospective economic trends. Still, from the research perspective, this management appears as a black box in many aspects.
This is why, in this special issue, we welcome either theoretical or empirical contributions aimed at exploring the peculiarities and challenges affecting evolving real estate firms to date. In particular, our goal is to collect articles which can provide both scholars and practitioners with valuable food for thought about different facets, such as: real estate firms’ corporate governance and strategy; management and operations; marketing and innovation; accountability and finance.
Both theoretical and research papers are welcomed.
Suitable topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Real estate firms' corporate governance and strategy
- Real estate firms' human resource management
- Real estate firms' knowledge management
- Real estate firms' corporate social responsibility
- Real estate firms' accountability and finance
- Real estate firms' corporate restructuring
- Real estate firms' supply chain management
- Real estate firms' marketing and innovation
- Real estate firms' internationalisation
- Real estate firms' networks
Submission deadline: 31 March, 2014
