Starting with the European Academy of Management Conference in Lisbon (26-28 June 2019), there is going to be a
Standing Track on “Management and Organization Theory” at the EURAM conferences
Standing track description: As researchers in management and organization, we want to develop or apply adequate, impactful, and future-proof theories. Yet, there is more concern than ever that “management theory is a becoming a compendium of dead ideas” (The Economist) and that there is a lack of up-to-date management and organization theories (Panel I @EURAM 2018). The “Management and Organization Theory” track is a response to this theoretical vacuum. Open to all paradigms, it invites decidedly theoretical and conceptual contributions from scholars with backgrounds in management and organization studies, sociology, economics, anthropology, history, information science, and communication studies, and other relevant disciplines.
Convenors: Steffen Roth, La Rochelle Business School, France, and Kazimieras Simonavicius University, Lithuania (send an email); Miguel Pérez-Valls, University of Alméria, Spain; and Augusto Sales, KPMG Global Strategy Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Registration Deadline: 25 April 2019. Please see the EURAM 2019 conference website for further details.
Topics of submissions to the 2019 standing track may be related, but not limited, to the special issue of the Journal of Organizational Change Management on Theory as method.
