LIMEN 2023 Conference Day








The organizing is an evolutionary phenomenon, distinctive because of laws of existence and maintaining all structures in all processes of their functioning.

As such, it is a civilizational phenomenon also that occurs as a component of human, individual and social activities and as a factor in the overall development of man and society.

On the other hand, as a deliberate human activity, organizing involves seeking solutions to problems that occur on the way to achieving specific goals.

No goal can be achieved without appropriate or necessary, or at least minimal organization of conditions, factors and processes needed for goal achievement.

However, the modern era requires new types of leaders and managers, and new forms of organization; demands those who are willing and able to lead the company / corporation / state, in a distinct competitive environment, with all the good and bad sides brought by the globalization of world economy.

The organizers of LIMEN conference have recognized the problem that nowadays exists in most modern organizations: so much management and too little of leadership. In fact, leadership is a major and crucial phase of management. Being a leader means having a certain social impact in order to maximize the efforts of others aimed at achieving the defined objectives.

Bearing in mind the challenges of a dynamic engagement in contemporary organizations, it is clear that within the analysis of these important subjects should be applied interdisciplinary approach.
