Mission

The Research Methods and Research Practice (RM&RP) strategic interest group (SIG) exists to promote debates – and stimulate innovation – around all aspects of academic research, from its conception through to its execution and dissemination. 

The RM&RP SIG seeks to draw understanding about research methods and research practice from all business and management disciplines including Accounting, Computer Science, Entrepreneurship, Finance, Human Resource Management, Learning and Development, Marketing, Operations Management, Organizational Behaviour, Strategy, and Systems Management.  By sharing novel approaches and advancing knowledge about the usefulness of different methods and the facilitators of – and constraints on – the use of those methods in the research and broader environment, it seeks to enable researchers to improve the design and execution of their research.  Good research approaches are indispensible to the asking of important research questions and to engage meaningfully with the broader societies.  The RM&RP SIG aims to stimulate debate in a supportive environment in which all levels of academic from doctoral students through to senior professors feel at home.  The RM&RP SIG aims to promote understanding across national borders and to draw strength from the diversity of research approaches that exist across Europe and beyond.  It seeks to generate continuous debate between conferences through its use of a range of different media including electronic newsletters and a presence on the world wide web.

EURAM Conference 2016

RM&RP: General Track (GT 12 00)

Management academics' capability to manage their co-operation with industry, public bodies, civil society institutions and broader communities depend on their ability to generate reliable research in settings over which they may exercise limited control. The RM&RP track will feature papers on all kinds of research methods and analytical techniques, and the challenges faced by researchers in building trust, gaining access, working cross-nationality, catering for different audiences and promoting positive impact.

RM&RP: Standing Track 'Developing an Evolutionary Epistemology? Evolutionary Approaches in Management Research

How so social organizations evolve? This track will contribute to the lively, critical discussion about the possibility and opportunity to develop an evolutionary epistemology in management research. The track will feature both conceptual and methodological contributions regarding the many approaches that have flourished in the field of organizational evolution research, for example, system thinking, ecology, memetics and agent-based modelling. These will be related to the current practice of business and also to future directions.

Social Event

A social event is planned for the evening of Tuesday 31st May - all are most welcome and encouraged to contact Bill Lee if they would like to attend This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
