20 Megatrends Shaping Management Thought in 2050

El-Bassiouny, Noha

A chapter in 7th International OFEL Conference on Governance, Management and Entrepreneurship: Embracing Diversity in Organisations. April 5th - 6th, 2019, Dubrovnik, Croatia, 2019, pp 219-223 from Governance Research and Development Centre (CIRU), Zagreb

Abstract: Ever wondered what the world will be like in 2050? How would the pressing global challenges then affect management scholarship? Through a review of the relevant literature, this paper aims at reviewing the megatrends that will shape the future, a little more than three decades ahead; i.e. in 2050. The paper outlines 20 megatrends that are likely to mold management literature and scholarship production. These trends are characterized by path dependence, in as much as we can extrapolate from the past to the future, and complementarity, i.e. they are not mutually exclusive. The paper ends with rhetorical questions regarding the role of sustainability in the management discourse and the relationship that this has with the Dominant Social Paradigm (DSP) currently dominating management thought.
