New information and communication technologies impose on the contemporary world such a dynamics that the resulting synergy and convergence effects of transformational change simultaneously within economical, social and cultural realm are difficult to predict. As a result, within growing complexity and unpredictability of the ambient conditions, there is no defined, closed repertoire, strategy or solution, whether business oriented or institutional that provides both effective and innovative approach to the increasing structural problems of the global environment. The only existing solution to maintain a sustainable competitive advantage within the today world of permanent and endogenous change seems to be the human capital (potential) involvement: its creativity and innovation approach, which solely can become a source of Schumpeter’s creative destruction.
This implies in case of emerging economies, which are still lag behind the mature, developed countries both in economic, social and cultural standard of living that to close this gap, the interdisciplinary approach to human capital (human resources) is required. This is especially so in reference to the transformational potential of information and communication technologies (ICTs) with its new management techniques, new business models, and new regulatory policies. Thus, the objective of this conference is to provide a forum for interested researchers and practitioners to exchange their experiences and creative ideas related to ICT management for global competitiveness and economic, social and cultural growth in emerging economies.
