BISAC: BUS041000

This volume includes eight chapters that detail recent advances in business and management. Chapter One examines the link between industrialization and economic growth through a three-single-country analysis of their manufacturing output. Chapter Two details the impact of digitalization on women’s entrepreneurship. Chapter Three outlines research on strategic and operational analysis methods in the contemporary operational environment using integrated methods and analyses. Chapter Four analyzes the evolution of agribusiness from a transdisciplinary research framework based in a circular economy to determine strategies for its successful application for sustainability of agribusiness and biorefineries of the 21st century. Chapter Five aims to understand the investment strategy of migrant workers: options, and sector of choice, to model their investment trajectory on local investment. Chapter Six maps out the emotional intelligence, experiences, perceptions and subsequent actions of higher education leaders in a change process, and also charts the perception of leaders on how employees respond to change. Chapter Seven builds on Maslow’s hierarchy of needs and draws on human behaviour and human psychology on leadership management to propose a new theory linking the success of change initiatives and organizational performance. Lastly, Chapter Eight presents Fintech as a solution to financial inclusion in India.
