Corporate Strategies and Processes

How should a firm adapt its organization to the digital age or react to disruptive innovation in financial services? What are the right incentives to motivate workers in a firm to cooperate amongst themselves and to serve the interests of customers and shareholders? Business management devises corporate structures and processes to effectively adapt to rapidly changing environmental conditions. These responses concern different aspects of management: strategic management, technology and innovations management, accounting and control, personnel management and organization, supply chain management and operations management.  
This theme is closely related to Changing Markets and Institutions, but here we address issues of governance and incentive structures from the perspective of a firm.
