New Issue of the Journal of Aboriginal Management is Now Available

The latest issue of the Journal of Aboriginal Management is now available, in both English and French. This issue focuses on the theme of Why is Workplace Innovation Necessary?

"Is your workplace innovative, and is innovation important to you as a leader? In this issue of JAM, we consider the role of innovation in our businesses and organizations and communities. At the core of innovation, we find human curiosity. As Jeff Frketich writes, in his article Adapt or Die, “it’s up to us, as professionals, to ask: is there a better way?” Our species has invented powerful tools, but none is more potent than a good question. Good questions can dislodge us from slumber; they inspire us to look at old problems through new eyes. Innovation begins with a good question," says editor Wayne K. Spear.

The Journal of Aboriginal Management is the only professional journal in Canada for Indigenous Professionals working in the management, finance and governance fields. This semi-annual journal focuses on professional trends and innovations in these fields and includes interviews with leaders, articles from experts that profile community-based initiatives and best practices, as well as advertisements from professional organizations that are at the top of their field. This Journal is intended to help you be on the leading-edge of key Indigenous management, finance and governance issues that will impact your career and business.
