Lubin Business Review

Lubin Business Review

Lubin has just published the third annual issue of Lubin Business Review, featuring abstracts of published research on the theme of operating in a 'VUCA' (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous) business climate, so that leaders can better understand and manage their new challenges in times of disruption. Though not specifically anticipating the effects of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, this issue offers timely principles from the perspective of all business disciplines for riding the waves of change to sustainable success.
