ISME Management Journal: Xplore is a research journal focuses on Contemporary issues in Management and is intended to highlight the challenges faced by modern-day businesses. Business environments are radically different and very complex compared to the last decade. There is a paradigm shift across all sectors including manufacturing, agriculture and service sectors. Factors such as shifting demographics, widening income inequalities and climate uncertainty are changing and challenging the dynamics of doing business.

To adapt and transform businesses, we need newer perspectives on business models, industry structures, work, social systems, and value creation.
