Message from the Editors
We are pleased to bring to you the third Issue of the IAFOR Journal of Business & Management. It is an internationally reviewed and editorially independent interdisciplinary journal associated with IAFOR’s international academic conferences.
The IAFOR Journal of Business & Management publishes articles touching on international, intercultural, innovative and interdisciplinary issues in business management that address challenges and solutions in a complex and rapidly changing environment. We encourage submissions from academics, practitioners and professionals within the fields of Business and Management.
This issue of the journal presents three research papers. Chapter 1 identifies key internal organisational factors and how they influence the adoption of strategic outsourcing within supply chains in the Ugandan oil and gas sector. In Chapter 2 the author demonstrates that the military governance mode “Auftragstaktik” is useful for business organisations in volatile environments. Finally, Chapter 3 proposes an improvement to the way organisational diversity training (DT) is usually designed and delivered.
We would like to thank the authors and reviewers for handling the peer review process in a collegial and timely fashion. We would also like to thank the Editorial staff at IAFOR led by Mr Nick Potts, Publications Manager who were instrumental in keeping us on track and bringing out the issue on time.
The next issue is planned for March 2018.
