This special issue presents the extended version of selected papers presented at the ICONIS 2019 congress. All the accepted papers will follow a strict peer review process so they reach the quality standards of an international journal. 

The ICONIS 2019 congress is related to the Iberoamerican Network of Competitiveness, Innovation and Development (REDCID) that is part of the networks endorsed by the Ibero-American Program of Science and Technology for Development (CYTED), whose main objective is to quantify the multiplying effect of light innovation capabilities in the company and its impact on the progress and well-being of Iberoamerica. More than 10 universities at the Ibero-American level are affiliated to this network. 

The main themes of the special issue are focused on innovation because in order to have a knowledge-driven economy knowledge-based organizations are needed (Yildirmaz  et al., 2018; Merigo et al. 2016). In order to do that, a variety of disciplines like engineering, management, economics, business and many more are applied and combined in order to generate different types of innovation (Hashimoto, 2012). A common characteristics in the innovation process is the necessity to reduce uncertainties and risks (Koschatzky, 1998). 

The other main topic of the conference is the use of fuzzy methodologies (Merigo et al. 2015; Zadeh, 1965) that allow improving decision making in organizations within different strategic areas (Blanco-Mesa et al., 2017; Gil-Lafuente, 2005). Within the fuzzy methodologies that helps to incorporate the expertise, knowledge and expectations of the decision maker is the Ordered Weighted Average (OWA) operator developed by Yager (1988) and of which several extensions have been developed (He et al. 2017; Yager et al., 2011).

La idoneidad de los términos de referencia utilizados en los enfoques críticos del management y de las organizaciones para explicar lo que ocurre en regiones como América Latina está siendo cuestionada. Dado que existe una desconexión entre los estudios críticos –eurocéntricos y anglosajones– del management y la diversidad geopolítica y social de las realidades que se analizan desde esas perspectivas, este número Especial tiene como finalidad presentar discusiones alternativas que problematicen las representaciones sobre lo que significa ser crítico, así como las perspectivas que se utilizan para entender “lo crítico” en los procesos de investigación.

 

En esta línea, si bien históricamente los estudios críticos del management (CMS) han confrontando el statu quo de la producción de conocimiento, el desafío que se ha propuesto llega solo hasta el punto en donde se empieza a comprometer su posición en la academia. De este modo, las discusiones dominantes dentro de la tradición de los estudios críticos se articulan dentro de límites aceptables que siguen reproduciendo jerarquías de exclusión de otros proyectos intelectuales.

 

En estas condiciones, en este Especial se convoca a presentar trabajos que desafíen la colonialidad y el etnocentrismo hegemónico presentes en los estudios convencionales y críticos sobre el management y las organizaciones. Influidos por la tradición de los estudios postcoloniales e inspirados en las conversaciones desarrolladas en la Red Latinoamericana de Estudios Organizacionales –REOL–, se hace un llamado a enviar trabajos que se propongan decolonizar la producción de conocimiento en management y su subsecuente consumo en las organizaciones. Una perspectiva decolonial ofrece la oportunidad de sacar a la luz posiciones conceptuales, teóricas y prácticas desde y para la periferia.

 

Se invitan contribuciones en los siguientes ejes temáticos, los cuales no son exhaustivos:

-        Espacios epistemológicos para decolonizar los estudios del management y las organizaciones

-        Resistencia y subversión decolonial frente al pensamiento gerencial.

-        Contradicciones y paradojas en el pensamiento decolonial en management

-         Heterogeneidad, hibridismo y pluriversalidad en management crítico

-         Teoría y práctica en management no occidental

-         Voces y silencios en las perspectivas decoloniales

-        Encuentros dialógicos entre poscolonialidad y decolonialidad

-        Estrategias decoloniales para desafiar la crítica organizacional domesticada
