About the book

Leadership plays an important role in an organization’s life cycle. Leaders guide and shape the future of their organizations. They motivate, inspire and rally their organizational fellows and work together to achieve a common goal.

In a rapidly changing world due to the political, social, and technological changes, those wisdom and leadership practices that were effective in the past might not be the same in the future. In terms of generational change, the leadership positions are occupied mostly by baby boomers but their new colleagues are from X- and Y- generations who are motivated by different things, and their values are different from others. For example, Y- generations need more freedom, more fun and at the same time, they are individualist but connected with others as well as conscious about society and sustainability. Rapid technological advancements such as industry 4.0, big data, and artificial intelligence are changing the organizational agents' mode of work and relationships. Globalization, trade war, and new global economic order are also changing the business landscape and the need for up-to-date leadership skills and capabilities.

Organizations and individuals are more connected globally, and leadership quality needs to develop leadership skills in terms of collaboration, building and mending relationships, working across boundaries, change management, and participation management. We invite researchers to address the above-mentioned issues in a new context.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Romina Rovan

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
