The term “*new economy*” was coined in the 1990s to represent a movement from an industrial and manufacturing-based economy toward a more service-oriented economy that evolved substantially based on advancements in information technology. Although associated with the rise and fall of the dot.com, what the new economy really ushered in was a greater reliance by organizations on knowledge and human capital. Considerable research opportunities developed concerning ways to leverage these aspects of economic growth potential. Business schools are particularly well placed to examine the roles of knowledge and human capital in organizational success. As the primary Canadian forum for business scholars to discuss their ideas, the conference theme for ASAC 2009 focuses on creating the knowledge necessary to be successful in this new economy.
Deadline for paper submissions, symposia and workshop proposals is 30 January 2009.
