This publication will provide researchers and practitioners with new perspectives and tools to deal with the topic of “resilience” at different levels and in different contexts. A focus on emerging countries will be of great value since such countries in transition are facing real challenges of global competition, economic, social, environmental, and sanitary concerns. Few experiences from these countries are reported till now. Managerial, organizational, and entrepreneurial scholars across disciplines discussed the topic of resilience with different perspectives and approaches from developed economies. But much remains unknown about the manner to conceive the concept in recent and unprecedented times (notably in the context COVID-19 pandemic among others) disturbing everyone in their daily life, (family) business, and workplace. Contributions from developed and developing countries will be also of great value to bring a more holistic picture of the phenomenon of resilience from different perspectives and approaches (RBV, KM, dynamic capabilities, capital, contingency, configuration…), situations and circumstances (emergent, new, young, small, well-established organizations, innovation and change projects) and levels of analysis (individual, team, organizational). The book tries to explore several promising experiences from emerging countries in different managerial, organizational, and entrepreneurial issues. It will advance new perspectives for future research by investigating different levels with interdisciplinary approaches and more integrative frameworks. Being as capability, “resilience” will be linked to many other concepts (CSR, sustainability, well-being, innovation…). The accepted chapters of the book will focus on different conceptions of performance: individual, team, and organizational performance; success, re-bouncing, well-being, job satisfaction, life satisfaction… This publication aims at having a global appeal, representing experts and researchers from different countries, continents, and universities.
