Sponsored by the Academy of Management Journal, the Organization Development and Change Division of the Academy of Management, and the Centre for Strategic Leadership at the University of Edinburgh Business School.

Organisational and Institutional Change

Following previous successful events held annually since 2014, we are very pleased to announce that the seventh annual paper development workshop on organisational and institutional change will take place on 2 March 2020 at the University of Edinburgh Business School.

This workshop is generously supported by the Academy of Management Journal, the Organization Development and Change Division of the Academy of Management (AOM), and the University of Edinburgh Business School’s Centre for Strategic Leadership.

As with previous sessions, this workshop offers an opportunity for scholars to develop their ongoing work related to organisational or institutional change. The workshop will be developmental, with each paper having as discussant a senior scholar with a track record of multiple publications in, and editorial or editorial board appointments with leading journals.

Confirmed discussants are:

  • John Amis (University of Edinburgh)
  • Shaz Ansari (University of Cambridge)
  • Royston Greenwood (University of Alberta and University of Edinburgh)
  • Jennifer Howard-Grenville (University of Cambridge)
  • Candace Jones (University of Edinburgh)
  • Martin Kornberger (University of Edinburgh)
  • Kamal Munir (University of Cambridge)
  • Juliane Reinecke (King’s College London)

There will be a plenary session led by Professor Jennifer Howard-Grenville, Deputy Editor at the Academy of Management Journal, devoted to improving understanding of how to publish in leading journals in general and the AOM journal in particular.

Authors will also receive feedback from peers with similar research interests. It should be of special interest for colleagues recently graduated with a PhD and doctoral students with quite well-developed manuscripts; scholars more advanced in their careers are also welcome to attend.

Selection of papers will be based on an abstract of 500 words. The deadline for abstract submission is 17 January 2020. Full paper drafts will be required by 22 February 2020. Please send abstracts and papers to John Amis at john.amis@ed.ac.uk.

Scholarships

The generous support of the ODC Division and the Centre for Strategic Leadership will allow us to provide a small number of $500 scholarships to help defray expenses for some doctoral students. Successful applicants to the workshop will automatically be considered for a scholarship; no separate application is required.

Logistics and Support for Participants

The Centre for Strategic Leadership at the University of Edinburgh Business School is pleased to host and jointly organise this workshop. The conference will consist of around 50 doctoral students, early career faculty, and senior colleagues, who will discuss papers and offer developmental advice. The atmosphere will be collegial and informal, but centred on profressing working papers with the objective of getting them published in leading journals.

There is no conference fee, and no charge for lunch, coffee breaks, and closing reception. Participants must make their own travel arrangements and pay for accommodation. We will provide recommendations of where to stay. Participants are expected to attend for the whole day. Registration is at 08:30, and the formal programme concludes at 17:00 with a drinks reception finishing at 18:00. If participants wish to extend their trip to enjoy Edinburgh and the surrounding area, we can help with advice and arrangements.
