Management and Business as a discipline drives innovation and best practice for organizations of all sorts and sizes. Research management and business seeks to address problems and issues that organizations face by providing evidence-based solutions. These challenges range from strategic issues to managerial struggles to operational barriers. Whether it is related to resource-driven issues, or the socio-cultural aspects of organizational life, business and management research strives to discover real causes and develop research-informed practical solutions to bring about better organizations and thus better impact on the society and communities that they reside.
