01.01.S Praxis as Art: Sustainability in Action

Time: 21st of June – TH 9:00 – 10:30
Location: Askja – N-132

In resonance with the topic "Research in Action", this symposium deals with possibilities for sustainability in action by integrating prâxis, practices and practical wisdom. In Ancient Greek prâxis was interpreted to an activity engaged in their polis linked to phrónêsis. In Old Norse literature it is referred to ways of associating with others. For both traditions, praxis represents integral configuration of co-created intrinsic activities related to common good of a community. Today this understanding can be linked to the art of wisdom and designing sustainable actions as both artful and entrepreneurial endeavors.

Symposium speakers include, in addition to proponents:

Luca Zan, University of Bologna
Davide Bizjak, University of Naples Federico II
Edoardo Mollona, University of Bologna

01.02.S Business for Society as a living project

Time: 21st of June – TH 16:00 – 17:30
Location: HT – 103

How to provide insghts on what business can do for society? How to escape from the dilemma induced by literature between purely liberal views (business and society) and utilitarian ones (business in society)? This symposium is designed to launch a global business for society project, which aims at preventing new critical and constructive theories from being hijacked by dominant theories and ideologies. Proponents and pannelists will interact in order to discuss on how to develop business for society research. They will consider the epistemological, conceptual, methodological and institutional issues such a research has to deal with in order to build up an, if not completely new, independant research stream for social good. The symposium is submitted in partnership with Society and Business Review, and Greenleaf, that will launch a book series entitled "Business for Society". This symposium is consistent with the white paper project presented at EURAM 2017.

01.03.S Defining sound governance for any type of organisation

Time: 21st of June – TH 14:00 – 15:30
Location: Askja – N-132

There is no agreed definition as to what constitutes sound corporate governance, let alone sound governance of non-incorporated organisations in the public, private or non-profit sectors. Without sound governance living things cannot exist let alone survive, thrive and adapt to dynamic unknowable environments. Social scientists have remained largely oblivious to the natural laws encoded in DNA that allow engineers to design self-governing automobiles that can survive in complex dynamic environments while avoiding harm to themselves and others. Social scientists may wish to add a normative dimension for sound governance by introducing concepts like fairness? Research requires an agreed definition.

01.04.S Impact and Action-Oriented Research on Poverty & the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

Time: 21st of June – TH 14:00 – 15:30
Location: HT - 104

The first (of the 17) Sustainable Development Goal  (SDG) is a global call to action for business organisations, investors, Higher Education Institutions, civil society, and public sector organisations ‘to end poverty in all forms everywhere’ by 2030.  This is an immense research challenge that requires innovation and experimentation.
This multifocal symposium will illustrate how SDG#1 can be achieved though (1) innovative research methods, such as visual participatory action research; (2) faculty member success stories that  integrate  poverty into management/business education curricula and courses, and (3) a cross-disciplinary approach to scholarly publications that fosters new ideas and new thinking.

01.05.S Management and company-centric approaches to corporate governance. [Corporate governance for society.]

Time: 21st of June TH 11:00 – 12:30
Location: Askja N-132

Corporate governance stands at a crossroads. To move away from overly short-term oriented models, new models need to be developed that focus on the long-term prosperity of companies and sound management practices. The symposium will engage a dialog on how management sciences can contribute to these goals through a renewal of corporate models and corporate law. To develop corporate governance that works for companies and society, can business take place within existing legal frameworks or can we develop new institutions and legal frameworks that enable a different framing for management? And do we build upon existing views from law or can a focus on companies and management fuel a different direction for these institutions and legal frameworks?

07.01.S Famous Scholars in Expatriate Management: Personal Stories about Getting Published - Managing Reviewers, Revisions, and Rejection

Time: 22nd of June FR 14:00 – 15:30
Location: Verold VHV-023
 

Building on a wildly successful 2017 symposium in Glasgow, this year we engage with four famous scholars in expatriate management about 'getting published'. High profile scholars (potentially) include Gary Oddou, Rosalie Tung, Jan Selmer, Nancy Adler, Paula Caliguiri, Mark Mendenhall, Vlad Vaiman, and Jaime Bonache (among others). In a departure from the generic format these sessions usually entail, we will instead get intimate with our famous scholars by asking them to discuss their personal journal through the highs and lows of publishing their work, including honest accounts and personal examples related to managing reviewers, revisions, and rejection. The specific focus of the symposium is to engage the audience for a full 90-minute interactive Q&A dialogue with experienced scholars whose names we typically only see in print.

01.07.S Sharing Economy: Spontaneous order of P2P Interactions and Exchanges

Time: 20th of June WD 16:00 – 17:30
Location: Askja N-132
 

The core idea is not dividing a fortune and distributing the portions, as the term sharing insinuates. The key concept rather refers to mutual interactions among peers without the intermediation of central hubs. In a sense, sharing economy is a peer-to-peer (P2P) social spontaneous order.
The P2P platforms depend on two sets of customers, as in a two-sided market. The P2P exchange facilitating platforms definitely disrupt conventional sectors. For example, P2P home exchange platforms like Airbnb thoroughly compete with the hotel industry.

01.08.S Social Innovation, Public Engagement and Participative Democracy: From Knowledge Creation to Social Engagement

Time: 21st of June TH 9:00 – 10:30
Location: HT-103

As a complex and multi-faceted topic, social innovation encompasses multiple dimensions and moving boundaries. The study of the sources, processes and impacts of social innovation cannot be dissociated from the institutional and market factors that govern and shape individual decisions and collective actions. Public engagement and deliberative democracy are needed to cope with the social, economic and environmental problems of our modern societies. This symposium aims at stimulating the debate on how social innovations can be supported in public and business spheres.  The panelists will highlight the role of universities, enterprises and communities in stimulating public engagement and reinforcing deliberative democracy to support social innovation in the economy and society.

01.10.S Transparency, sustainability, anticorruption and fraud screening: best practices and misbehaviours

Time: 21st of June TH 16:00 – 17:30
Location: HT - 105

This symposium explores the economic consequences of organized crime, corruption and corporate misbehavior. Although prior research has established a negative association, there is the need to better understand what are the potential channels through which crime and frauds affect economic outcomes both at the firm and at the country levels. In addition to that, the track welcomes contributions in the areas of corporate governance, reporting and processes to limit and control corruption and to promote sustainable and ethical growth. This track aims at gathering scholars that tackle these issues from a multidisciplinary perspective and with a variety of methods

02.01.S Advancing Knowledge in Corporate Governance: The Role of Research Methodology

Time: 21st of June TH 14:00 – 15:30
Location: HT - 105

Knowledge creation in corporate governance is a double-edged sword.  Research is interdisciplinary, addresses corporate governance variations due to different national institutions, and embraces both qualitative and quantitative designs.  While this combination of features makes for a theoretically rich body of work, it also raises hurdles and opportunities in the publication process.  This symposium will help prospective authors better design the methodology of new governance studies.  The session will explore common pitfalls regarding the methodology of governance journal submissions, and also highlight recommendations for best practices.  A content analysis of published governance studies will also be used to benchmark normative practices.

06.01.S Methodological Innovation: Necessary Condition Analysis (NCA)

Time: 21st of June TH 11:00 – 12:30
Location: HT – 103

Necessary Condition Analysis (NCA) is a novel methodology, recently published in Organizational Research Methods (Dul, 2016). The method has already been applied in fields such as, strategy, entrepreneurship, organizational behavior, and human resource management. Reactions of editors and reviewers are very promising. For example, an editor of a top journal said: “From my perspective, [this NCA paper] is the most interesting paper I have handled at this journal, insofar as it really represents a new way to think about data analyses". This symposium discusses the backgrounds of the method and the possibilities to apply it. More details on: www.erim.nl/nca

07.02.S Preferred Leader Behavior of Businesspeople at the Edge of Europe

Time: 21st of June TH 14:00 – 15:30 
Location: Veröld VHV-023

Adler & Gundersen (2008) pointed out that in periods of great change, which seem to be continuous so far in the 21st century, only those international business leaders and managers survive who understand the myriad and particular changes driven by international differences. This symposium will present the research outcomes and implications of studies of preferred leader behavior of businesspeople in Iceland, Finland, Lithuania, European Russia (compared to Siberian Russia), Romania, and Turkey. Proponents will present research they have conducted in those countries

08.01.S Togetherness and Team Sports

Time: 22nd of June FR 9:00 – 10:30
Location: HT – 103

“Cohesion is something of a Holy Grail for coaches and team managers: it is hard to find but almost magical in its effects, transforming an aggregation of individuals into a collective unit” (Cashmore, 2002 :59). The purpose of this symposium is encourage interactive discussions, emphasizing alternative views from different academic disciplines as well as from practitioners in the field of sports on teamwork and team cohesion. In sports, the criteria for the level of performance are evident in that successful teamwork often becomes translated into specific results.  The translation makes sport performance an ideal subject for analysis on sporting success and teamwork.

09.01.S Having a closer look at how idiosyncratic deals (i-deals) operate in teams: The role of co-worker reactions and the broader relational context

Time: 21st of June TH 11:00 – 12:30
Location: HT - 105
 

In today's dynamic and competitive work settings, employees increasingly seek to be treated individually at workplaces. This trend has culminated into the concept of idiosyncratic deals (i-deals) which refer to individually bargained deals between subordinates and their employers, aimed at adressing their work preferences and needs. Despite the growing interest, studies to date have mainly focused on how i-deals operate within a dyadic relationship of subordinates and their supervisors. This symposium aims to bring together research and scholars to discuss the broader implications i-deals have for co-workers, team and organisations.

10.01.S Beyond boundaryless carrers to carrers on projects

Time: 22nd of June FR 9:00 – 10:30
Location: Logberg L-101
 

Welcome to HRM on projects! This topic is increasingly important as project organizing is now a core and inescapable principle in many industries. Often conceptualized as temporary organizations (Bakker et al, 2016), projects are established within and between organizational functions, span organizational boundaries, and populate networks. Projects are important sites where HRM activities are designed and implemented (Keegan et al, 2017). We are interested in research that addresses questions such as: What issues arise for organizations in developing human and social capital on projects?; Are HRM practitioners equipped to manage the HR aspects of projects and project based organizing?; What kinds of careers do people have on projects?; And, what are the effects of project based working on individual well-being?. We welcome rigorous conceptual and empirical submissions, at different levels of analysis, and from different theoretical perspectives.

12.02.S Multilingual research, monoligual publication: Language & translation in international management research

Time: 21st of June TH 14:00 – 15:30
Location: Árnagardur Á-201  

International management research is based on the collection and analysis of data from many languages and employs concepts and knowledge from traditions outside the English speaking Western world. This implies ongoing and intense translation work as part of the research process. Indeed, acts of translation have been shown to be influential and transformative in the generation of knowledge. Yet, these acts and their consequences disappear, when it comes to the publication of research accounts in ‘English only’.  The symposium offers opportunity to explore the role of language/translation in the creation and dissemination of management knowledge and to engage critically with the contemporary publication status quo.

13.01.S Alliances, Platforms, Ecosystems & Hybrids: Different Phenomena? Different Research Approaches?

Time: 20th of June WD 11:00 – 12:30
Location: HT - 104

The so-called platform-based organizational forms or ecosystems have been enabled by advancements in digital and communication technology.  Their increasing popularity raise significant questions: Are they a mere extension of alliances and networks within a particular context or are they truly distinct? Can (or should) they be located along the continuum from market to hierarchy or are they a different phenomenon organized on different principles? In such case, how is value created and captured in platform-based organizational forms? Are they able to address certain challenges better that other more traditional forms of organizing such as markets, firms and alliances?

Time: 21st of June TH 14:00 – 15:30
Location: HT - 103

The purpose of this symposium is to assist management scholars in developing manuscripts that communicate organizational research to enhance its perceived stature and relevance by informing private, public and non-profit policy leaders.  Our goal is to facilitate better communication of the work we do to policy makers so that the insights from organizational research can be applied to public and private sector policy challenges.  The symposium will be organized in a round-table format, led editors and others involved in translational management research journals, with a focus on developing attendees’ ideas for publication in outlets aimed at informing policy makers.

14.03 S Workplace Innovation

Time: 21st of June TH 11:00 – 12:30
Location: HT - 104  

Workplace innovation (WPI) is a concept in development. It started with the idea that technological innovation alone is not enough, as renewal of socio-organisational elements is also required for organizations to become successful. The core notion and empirical finding is that employee engagement and employee involvement are a 'necessary condition' for success, which implies simultaneously achieving better quality of work and better organisational performance. New insights show that WPI can be understood as a set of complementary measures. This symposium presents and discusses new findings to explain how WPI functions and how it can be applied in practice.
