BAM event: Management History and Strategy in Conversation

Book Your Place NowJoint SIG Event: Management History and Strategy In Conversation – Can Movements Inform Responsibility?

The BAM Management and Business History and the BAM Strategy SIG are delighted to announce that joint SIG event, Management History and Strategy In Conversation – Can Movements Inform Responsibility? is taking place on Thursday 1st March 2018, at Newcastle Business School, Northumbria University from 13.00 – 16.30.

There is continued and increasing academic interest in corporate responsibility and how this interacts and informs strategic management. On the one hand, contemporary movements such as the UN Global Compact sustainable development goals, as well as initiatives such as B-corporation accreditation have gained increasing attention, and yet what strategizing managers can learn from historical movements has received less attention. This seminar seeks to redress this balance. We bring together academics with expertise in the management history of movements such as the cooperative movement, credit unions, the mutuality movement, how Quakers as a religious movement left their mark, and we explore a case study of how Taylor’s scientific management was enacted in a ‘responsible’ business context.

The aim is to bring together researchers and doctoral students from academic and management contexts. We will outline the latest research being conducted in historical movements and discuss what lessons can be learned by contemporary organisations.

The benefits of such an event include increasing awareness of the types and foci of research in this community, to look for synergies in research streams such as strategy, responsible business, management history, and law, etc, and to find ways of collaborating that build bridges between different disciplines. We hope that participants will influence this discussion and the directions in which research could travel.

Who Should Attend

This event is aimed at researchers and doctoral students who are interested in how academic research interests can be aligned and who wish to collaborate across different fields.

Speakers

  • Prof John Wilson – Northumbria University
  • Sallyanne Decker – Greenwich University
  • Mark Billings – Exeter University
  • John Quail – York University
  • Nicholas Burton – Northumbria University

BAM PDW: ANALYSING THE PAST AND ITS TRACES IN MANAGEMENT AND ORGANIZATION RESEARCH AND TEACHING

Colleagues, if you’re attending the British Academy of Management conference in Newcastle in September, this workshop may be of interest:

ANALYSING THE PAST AND ITS TRACES IN MANAGEMENT AND ORGANIZATION RESEARCH AND TEACHING

BAM 2016 Newcastle

6 September 2-3.30p, Room B29, Barbara Strang Teaching Centre

Presenters

Bill Cooke, University of York, UK: histories of managerialism in global context

Stephanie Decker, Aston University, UK: post- and neo-colonial histories of international business

Ron Kerr, University of Edinburgh, UK: historically informed examinations of the banking crisis in management education

Linda Perriton, University of Stirling, Scotland: business and management history in the service of criticality in the curriculum

Michael Rowlinson, University of Exeter, UK: constructing management histories within and beyond organizations

Kevin Tennent, University of York, UK: business history and strategy.

Organizers

Sarah Robinson, University of Glasgow, UK

Scott Taylor, University of Birmingham, UK

There are regular workshops at conferences that call for greater acknowledgement of the role of history in management research and education. There is also a developing literature in management & organization studies that argues for organization analysts to seek rapprochement with historians and vice versa, often underpinned by critical perspectives. This workshop responds to these frequent calls and this developing literature by bringing together presenters with expertise in historical methods, organization analysis and critical management education to provide a space to contribute to making histories and developing historically-informed teaching. The workshop consists of 30 minutes of presentation, followed by 30 minutes of small group research and teaching development work facilitated by the presenters and organizers. We then conclude with a 30 minute plenary and panel discussion on a) publishing historical work and b) on using history and historical research in critical management education.
