Dear Colleagues,
Apologies for cross posting:

Please note that we have organized "Globalization, change and learning in
South Asia' PDW at AOM 2013 (FL). We would like to bring it to your

WHEN: Fri Aug 9, 2013; 2.30pm-4pm
WHERE: WDW Yacht and Beach Club Resort in Asbury A

This is an interactive PDW (in a roundtable discussion format) that focuses
on exploring the changing context of the emerging South Asian economies. It
poses three main questions, a) how is globalization shaping individuals,
organizations and societies in South Asia, b) how South Asian economies are
coping with these changes, and c) what South Asian economies can learn from
other emerging and developed economies globally; as well what other
countries (including developed countries) may learn from the
experience of South
Asia to better serve needs of their global clientele and employee base.
Using a series of "roundtables", the goal of the session is to engage
participants in a broader discussion of the importance of change and
learning in managing globalization throughout the world. The session is
organized around the forthcoming volume of Globalization, Change and
Learning in South Asia (Chandos Publishing, UK) and presents a great
opportunity for informed debate about the growing importance of emerging
economies in international business theory and practice. The PDW is led and
organized by six globally diverse scholars, including Bhatti from the UK;
Khatri, Khilji, Chand from USA; Tung from Canada and Murray from Australia-
with expertise ranging from frugal innovation, ethics, culture, management,
learning and gender issues, however pieced around the relevance of South
Asia and importance of learning globally.
