S01.02 - CSR AND BUSINESS: Management facing contradictions, what future?

SIG 01 - B4S - Business for Society

SIG 13 - SM - Strategic Management

Faced to climatic change and uncertainty, the role of management is questioned by employees and its customers and the place of Corporate Social Responsibility is developing in firms. It’s difficult for a firm to choose between financial profit and environmental impact. How do managers react when they face ethical dilemmas? What are their companies’ CSR policies? What are the strategies for integrating CSR in their practices in order to respect short term profit? All these questions will be discussed during this symposium with Portuguese firms that will present their strategies and their problems under the regulation of a well-known professor.

S01.03 - Lending and Equity Crowdfunding and traditional financial services: competition or coopetition

SIG 01 - B4S - Business for Society

SIG 14 - Conference General Track

The Symposium aims to show the contribution of online-based crowdfunding platforms (lending and equity) to solve seekers’ financing gap (especially SMEs) during their life cycle, and to offer sustainable investment opportunities to capital providers (retail and professional). How can crowdfunding platforms cooperate with traditional financial services and in the future how can they offer better and sustainable services to seekers and capital providers, and at which level (international, domestic, civic)? How do seekers and providers behave in in making choices about lending and equity platforms, compared to other financing and investment channels?

S01.04 - Paradoxes of facts, fashion and Fado in the future of management

SIG 01 - B4S - Business for Society

The facts about the future of management have yet to be socially constructed but the fashion trends are clear and they may well be an occasion for Fado on the part of certain management scholars, those for whom a humanistic appreciation of management as a discipline and a practice was always foremost. Humanism is on the retreat and the present cycle of managerial innovation sees a favouring of machine over human imagery (Abrhamsson and Eisenman, 2008) that has the potential of paradoxically being both as liberating for humanity as it is dehumanizing.

S01.05 - Social Inclusion, Migration and Employment

SIG 01 - B4S - Business for Society

SIG 05 - GRDO - Gender, Race, and Diversity in Organisations

European countries face challenges in delivering sustainable and inclusive economic growth in times of austerity. In light of this, this symposium will explore a) how workforces and skills develop to match demand for labor; b) how employment policies secure labor market participation; c) how social policies protect migrant populations and enable their participation in the workforce; and (d) how population dynamics and migration interact shaping labor supply and demand. We also welcome theoretical/empirical papers that suggest how to increase the employment opportunities of those groups; and how to maintain healthy and productive workplaces at a time of austerity.

S01.06 - Social Innovation Pathways:  From Ethical Engagement to Participative Democracy

SIG 01 - B4S - Business for Society

The accelerating pace of technological change and innovation has had as a corollary a growing concern over social predicaments and societal and environmental dilemmas. In response to market failures and institutional shortcomings, social innovation has spread in policy, practice, and research with increasing impact on the economy and society. Faced with societal, ethical, environmental dilemmas, citizens, organizations and policy makers have engaged in actions to promote responsibility and participative democracy.  This symposium aims to stimulate the debate on public and ethical engagement to foster social transformation and enhance responsibility and accountability.

S01.07 - The Business for Society Project: New Step

SIG 01 - B4S - Business for Society 

The project for the book series launched with RoutledgePublishings  is to provide answers to a very simple question: what can business do for society? Said more precisely, how can companies, business ecosystems, interact with citizens and institutions to pursue common good and welfare? A business is an economic and social system, cooperative and conflictual at the same time, in which the coexistence of different actors with multiple and sometimes opposed expectations, requires a constant balance between economic goals and social responsibilities. The increasing complexity to address consists in the coexisting of multiple business functions, from economic organization of resources to an enlarged.

S01.08 - The management of human existential risk in our research and education. Should it be included?

SIG 01 - B4S - Business for Society

SIG 02 - COGO - Corporate Governance

The education of managers has been traditionally focused on organising resouces within organisations to neglect organising resources between organisations. The extinction of natural resources for everyone from their short term over expolitation by a few organisations has long been recognised as "The tradgedy of the commons".  As identified by 2009 economic laurette Elinor Ostrom avoidence of such tradegies was systemically achieve in pre-modern societies by establishing enduring networks relationships she described as "polycentric compound republics". The knowledge of how to design, construct and manage such external relationship is not taught but is practiced by network governed firms to some degree.

S01.09 - The Sharing and Collaborative Economy: The P2P business models, strategies and paradigms of innovation

SIG 01 - B4S - Business for Society

SIG 13 - SM - Strategic Management

The symposium by the virtue of its peculiarity has addressed and continue to address the major issues which constitute the core discussions and management knowledge creation at the different EURAM conferences: Spontaneous orders of transactions through people, the proactive and reactive strategies of conventional organizations vis-à-vis the increasingly predominant P2P activities, P2P innovations, impacts on social innovation and businesses, migration involvement in transborder P2P interaction, etc. The core idea of this symposium is not dividing a fortune and distributing its portions among peers. The key concept rather refers to mutual interactions among peers without the intermediation of central hubs.

S02.01 - Methodological challenges in Corporate Governance Research

SIG 02 - COGO - Corporate Governance

Knowledge creation in corporate governance is a double-edged sword, for multiple reasons:  Research is interdisciplinary, addresses regional variations in governance norms and characteristics, and embraces both qualitative and quantitative designs.  While this combination of features makes for a theoretically rich body of work, it also raises hurdles 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 provide recommendations for best practices.  A content analysis of published governance studies will also be used to benchmark normative practices.

SIG 02 - COGO - Corporate Governance

The symposium will engage in a dialog on how boards and governance mechanisms can adapt and develop to better contribute in achieving successful transitions in small and medium firms’ (SMEs’) growth states. Indeed, a large and growing literature relates to the governance of SMEs, with extensive debate over the value and contribution of firm governance and boards of directors and their roles in this context. Much of this debate considers board value from a static perspective. However, the question of board value governance contribution in SMEs is more complex when considered in circumstances of dynamic change.

S03.01 - Can you (really) teach entrepreneurship? Evaluating the Impact of Entrepreneurship Teaching Methods
SIG 03 - ENT - Entrepreneurship
SIG 04 - FABR - Family Business Research
Many studies in Entrepreneurship show that belonging to a family of entrepreneurs has a positive impact on the capacity one has to make a business grow. Therefore, does teaching entrepreneurship have any real impact (and, if yes, in what sense)? Do Business Schools “simply” play the “knighting role”?
This Symposium shows research results on where successful entrepreneurs learned their entrepreneurial skills. It presents a state of the art of entrepreneurial teaching methods and the impact each teaching method has on the formation of entrepreneurial skills, especially for different student audiences (disabilities, women, seniors).

The Symposium aims to, in line with the 2019 conference theme, to problematise and explore how the increased multi-directional flow of Highly-Educated Immigrants (HEMs) poses both opportunities and dilemmas for societies – and what role private sector companies can play in terms of identifying, recruiting, developing, sustaining, and draw benefit from, such talent into (trans)national labour markets. A panel comprised of interdisciplinary researchers and practitioners within global mobility, immigration/migration, labour integration, public policy and organisation studies will discuss key-issue areas, and in dialogue with the audience - to establish a future research agenda as well as informing public policy.

The Center for Cross Cultural Comparisons is a consortium of researchers interested in business, management, and leadership across cultures. It has been operating since 1996, and has produced several dozen publications from studies of more than 50 samples across 23 countries. The results of these studies indicate that there is little or no differences in leader behavior preferences between genders across the national samples. The symposium will present study results and potential explanations for the lack of gender-related differences in preferences. This tranche of samples includes Iran and Syria, as well as European and global samples.

S06.01 - Corporate Venture Capital, firm value and innovation

SIG 06 - INNO - Innovation

SIG 14 - Conference General Track

In the last years, the importance of Corporate Venture Capital (CVC) programs has grown around the world (Dushnitsky, and Lenox, 2006). CVCs are investments that established firms make in entrepreneurial companies (Rossi et al., 2017). In other words, CVC is an equity investment made by a company or its investment entity in a high growth, high potential, privately held business. But, there is no systematic evidence that corporate venture capital investments create value for the investing firms.

S06.02 - Collaboration in core and peripheral regions: symmetry, asymmetry, complementarity and competition

SIG 06 - INNO - Innovation

The launch of European Research Area was driven by the increasing awareness that the innovative capacity of regional economies can be strengthened by the transnational cooperation and competition. In the last decades, several programmes have been introduced in order to encourage interregional and interorganizational collaborations in order to foster processes of interactive knowledge generation and diffusion. Thus, collaboration is a complex and multi-faceted topic requiring to be more deeply explored. This symposium aims at stimulating the debate on how collaborations can be supported inside and outside the regions and how collaborations can reduce the gap between core and peripheral regions.

Following the call for an institutional and culturally situated management research (Adsit, London, Crom, & Jones, 1997; Hofstede, 1993), the present proposal challenges scholars to submitt works focusing on the emic or ethic cultural issues of Portuguese-Speaking Countries (PSC) including, but not limited, Brazil (Samba), Portugal (Fado), Cape Verde (Morna), Angola and Mozambique. Some historical perspective studies relating to Managing in PSCs are also welcomed (e.g., Lopes, 2014). There are over 200 Million Portuguese-Speaking people all over the world and the Portuguese is currently the most spoken language in the southern hemisphere. We thus invite you to join this exciting forum of promising research.

S09.01 - Careers between Fado and choices

SIG 09 - OB - Organizational Behaviour

Recent career studies have emphasized the role of individual proactive behaviors in shaping career paths. The research attention has followed trends in employment relationships that have become shorter and more flexible, suggesting that traditional conceptualizations of careers as ‘a job for life’, with ‘upward’ mobility as the main indicator of success, are obsolete.
However, structured organization-directed career paths appear still to be common in highly professionalized contexts, such as the healthcare. This symposium will showcase empirical studies from different professional contexts to derive insights, interactively with the audience, about the contextualization of some of the dominant career themes and constructs.

S09.02 - Organizational Design and Agility: implications for society, business and environment

SIG 09 - OB - Organizational Behaviour

SIG 01 - B4S - Business for Society

Previous management research generated tremendous insights about how to structure, plan, create, organize, maintain and improve processes, procedures, and routines. But we know very little when it comes to de-organize, create simpler from complex structures, isolate and debunk unnecessary routines, reduce bureaucracy to functional levels, for example. However, today's organizations are required to move toward more agile, flexible and adaptive forms. Hence this symposium focuses on agile organizations and the outcomes of agility for society at large. Particularly relevant to this topic are the consequences arising from organizational change in response to economic, social and environmental issues.

More in general, researches on both best practices and corporate misbehaviors are welcome. Although prior research has established a positive association between best practices and financial performances and a negative association between misbehaviors and economic growth there is the need to better understand what are the potential channels through which good and bad practices affect managerial design and economic outcomes, both at the firm level and at the country level.

S13.01 - Celebrating the 60th anniversary of Penrose's 1959 seminal book 'A theory of the growth of the firm'

SIG 13 - SM - Strategic Management

SIG 07 - IM - International Management

Penrose's 1959 book is probably the 1st book on corporate strategy and development and perhaps the most seminal one. It challenges the then dominant view that her fellow economists had of a static optimal firm size and scope, and introduces a continuous growing firm based on managerial learning and perceptions of the fungible services that its resources can render to serve productive opportunities. It is appropriate that for the 2019 EURAM conference exploring the future of management, we celebrate its 60 years, take stock of what we have learned since and explore the future challenges of corporate development.

There has been a surge of interest in abduction as a method in management research in recent years, yet many scholars are unfamiliar with abduction as it is not part of the standard instruction at Ph.D. programs. The aim of the symposium is to de-mystify how abduction differs from induction and deduction and to demonstrate how this approach can be used to enrich theorizing. Panelists will engage in a lively discussion of how abduction has been used in qualitative, quantitative, and mixed methods studies, and stimulate audience members to think about how abduction might be relevant for their own research.

Current research on refugees’ labour market integration gives emphasis to aspects that relate to the individual level while neglecting the organizational and the regional level. Given that, this symposium focuses on employer readiness and regional readiness. It builds on thematically relevant outcomes of the EU-funded project RIAC – Regional Integration Accelerators and illuminates good practices from regions in Germany, Italy and Turkey. The underlying question is: Which are the driving forces for an accelerated labour market integration on organizational and regional level? Scholars outline their research findings in tandems with practitioners who give insights into their challenging integration projects.

S14.03 - Faith at Work: Fact, Fashion or Fado? Perspectives from the German Speaking Countries

SIG 14 - Conference General Track

SIG 09 - OB - Organizational Behaviour

The faith at work movement flourishes in management research, alongside with intense hope by scholars that more spirituality at work may improve worker wellbeing and performance. While the field is evolving quickly, there are nevertheless large unexplored areas: Most of the empirical evidence stems from English speaking or Asian countries. Evidence from German speaking countries is largely missing. But as religion is part of culture, the readiness to address religion in public settings (e.g. workplace) is assumed to be culture- and country-specific. The symposium therefore discusses perspectives on faith at work from Austria, Germany and Switzerland.

We propose a Symposium to reflect on and discuss management education and the role of business schools in developing effective managers and responsible company leaders.  Are business schools being managed as a business that provides a service of management development? Or are business schools being managed as a business of selling a set of programmes about management and economics? Based on the work of Mintzberg we propose to reflect on the managerial role and promote a discussion about the role of business school leaders and about the success measure of business schools.

In an uncertain world, where trust in institutions, nations, and organisations is under severe pressure, the individual in our society seems to find hold in more tangible things that it can attribute a constant value to, i.e. monetary price. A price can function as the assurance of the reliability and quality of the individual’s choice. This symposium intends to address research from various disciplines on the question how and in what ways trust and money correlate. Our objective is to discuss the mechanisms behind this correlation and how money influences trust-based decision-making processes of individuals, groups and organisations.

Resilience is necessary to face the increasing trend of stressors/shocks impacting organizational performance. The objectives are to explore: (i) what are the perspectives of resilience across the individual, team, organizational, and project levels? (ii) can the key lessons learned about resilience from other disciplines (psychological, ecology, engineering) be applied in organizational studies? and (iii) what areas of resilience require further research in organizational theory? This symposium addresses these questions through an expert elucidation method, encouraging a panel of experts and the audience to share their knowledge on resilience to derive a holistic understanding of interdisciplinary formulations of the resilience concept.
