Letter from President 

Dear Colleagues,

Our research community investigates management issues and publishes new knowledge that is continuously being produced. Yet, the feedback that we receive from practitioners are mixed. While some are interested in what we do, many complain that our outputs (journal papers) are not easily readable or are not providing the practical answers - if not recipes – to what they are looking for. Many regret the “research-practice” divide that they observe, and some even claim that this divide is widening.

Obviously, all management research cannot be solely -and not even primarily- focused on addressing immediate practitioners’ needs. The research community has its own specific agenda, including building and testing new theories to bring light on the phenomena that we observe within and around organizations. Theoretical work, even when it may be distanced from practice, and novel ways of exploring issues are quite legitimate and necessary in our collective endeavour to better understand management. Yet, we also need to recognize that there are equally legitimate expectations out there, from practitioners who partake in the life of organizations.

In fact, this is nothing but the well-known tension between research activities conducted in the name of Science while publicly funded research is typically expected to contribute to application for Society.  

To address this issue, EURAM is about to launch a new initiative named EURAM SPARKS: when you, as EURAM member, have a paper presenting research results published (in EMR or another journal, or as a book chapter), you are kindly invited to write a two-pager that briefly describes the key elements of your findings specifically directed at practitioners. These two-pagers will be posted on EURAM’s internet platform, freely accessible from outside. EURAM will advertise the existence of this repository of accessible and easy-to-read short texts of the broad research results in management that our community produces.  These two-pagers drafted in plain English, while giving the reference of the full text for those readers interested in digging deeper into the matter, will specify the issue studied and why it is relevant, the target audience (e.g., industry practitioners, policy makers / Industries / Positions), the solution and/or recommendations stemming from the work, the practical implications and the expected benefits for companies or organizations. A very short section will mention how the matter was studied and the empirical evidence collected, informing about the “boundary conditions” (generalizability/applicability across contexts and time). These two-pagers will be prepared by the author(s) who will also briefly present themselves.

The EURAM SPARKS initiative intends to help close the gap between our research results and practitioners who may have an interest in reading about these results as long as they are made accessible. It will be up to each one of us to decide (or not) to make this step in their direction; it will be up to them to catch the ball that some of the members of our research community will throw at them. A simplified review process will be put in place to screen the two-pagers that will be posted.

Our colleague, Stefan Gueldenberg, EURAM VP for practice will be launching the EURAM SPARKS scheme shortly. If you are interested, you can already prepare yourself for it:  think about your past published work (recent and not so recent) and consider preparing a two-pager on the results of one of your research papers. Early 2019, Stefan Gueldenberg will specify the expected content format via a call to our membership.

You have questions about EURAM SPARKS? You need to send a message to Stefan? Do use our EURAM e-directory – a great new tool to connect within EURAM!

Season’s greetings!

EURAM 2019 Conference – 26-28 June 2019, ICSTE-IUL, Lisbon


First Announcement of Call for Papers: 26 September 2018

Deadline for Paper Submission: 15 January 2019 (2 pm Belgian time)

Dear colleagues,

Two major topics that concern and deeply affect our society will be the focus of guest speakers at EURAM 2019: Europe, its future and its role in the world; and Artificial Intelligence as an opportunity or a threat. In both cases it is important to understand how management theories and management schools can anticipate problems and propose possible solutions.

At the time of EURAM 2019 ten years will have passed on the implementation of the Treaty of Lisbon, the latest European Union Treaty signed by its member states. In the meanwhile, nationalist ideas have surged and blossomed all over the world and also within Europe, Brexit will be a reality in 2019, the United States exhibit erratic policies and China stealthily but consistently realizes its Belt and Road Initiative. All of these are powerful ingredients to alter the existing economic order. Theories of management are closely connected with society evolvement and stem from the subjects and concerns that continuously shape and change it. It is only natural that EURAM 2019 will devote space and time to allow reflections on these ten years and on the meaning of the many happenings therein. What will the future of Europe be? Will it disaggregate or reemerge stronger and more united? How can management contribute?

Artificial Intelligence and its consequences on the way society is organized is another main guest speaker topic. Is AI an opportunity or a threat for human kind? To which extent can management theories explore the opportunities and minimize the threats?

Both of these subjects: reshaping the EU and developing or containing AI deeply affect the future of all of us and we count on you in Lisbon to contribute to this ongoing reflection.  

Looking forward to seeing you in Lisbon!

We invite you to submit a chapter for a forthcoming book publication entitled Strategic Business Models to Support Demand, Supply, and Destination Management in the Tourism and Hospitality Industry to be published by IGI Global.
As one of the world’s largest economic sectors, Travel & Tourism creates jobs, drives exports, and generates prosperity across the world. According to World Travel and Tourism Council, the sector is shown to account for 10.4% of global GDP and 313 million jobs, or 9.9% of total employment, in 2017.
This book aims to address the main issues of interest in the tourism sector. In particular, this book will emphasize emergent and innovative aspects of tourism and hospitality in what respects demand, supply and destination management.

International Perspectives on Organizational Behaviour (Punnett, B.J., 2019) 4th edition is now available from Routledge/Taylor & Francis. The book examines the international, cross-cultural environment faced by international firms, detailing how this environment affects behavior at both the individual and organizational levels. Clearly written and concise, it helps students of international organizational behavior and cross-cultural management classes understand the many differences that managers face when operating cross-nationally, and provides them with practical tools to tackle these differences. For more information visit: www.routledge.com/9781138497191


Managing in Developing Countries (Punnett, B.J., 2018) 2nd edition is also available from Routledge/Taylor & Francis. It aims to fill an important gap in the literature – the lack of materials that speak to the special circumstances in developing countries. The book is an ideal text for introductory courses on management being taught in Africa and elsewhere throughout the developing world. Punnett identifies the characteristics, such as limited resources and varying cultural values, common to developing countries, and explores how these impact on the functions of management and the activities of managers in these countries. The book contains a wealth of information for managers in these countries; it draws on research wherever possible, and at the same time it is written in a straightforward style that makes it eminently readable. www.routledge.com/9781138636385 


The Routledge Handbook of Chinese Discourse Analysis. The book has just been passed on from Routledge’s Editorial Assistant to the production team and should be published in the early 2019. 


Call for papers for a Special Issue on Business Models and SMEs in the Journal of Business Research.

Deadline for submission is 29th February 2019.


Ambivalence in Mentorship (Routledge, 2018) is based on research of scores of mentors and protégés in longstanding relationships across career fields. Using case narratives, the book takes a nuanced look at the emotional complexities of their mentorships—the intense passions and hopes that get stirred up in these professional, yet intimate connections as well as the turmoil created by disappointment, betrayal, competition, and the mere readiness to move on.
Situating mentorship at the crosshairs of authority and love, the book highlights the interplay of intrapsychic, interpersonal, cultural, and historical forces that drive this relationship to be at once vital and risky. Professionals in social science, business, and management fields will welcome the book for its fresh perspective and voice it gives to both the joys and complicated feelings that attend mentorship.

Mapping a Winning Strategy introduces a new mapping method for creating and executing an effective business strategy. This method uses visual maps to engage colleagues throughout the organization, ensuring that every stakeholder’s voice is considered by avoiding a top-down approach. It enables business leaders to identify the strategic issues and address them successfully. By mapping out the most effective strategy, organizations can anticipate and manage roadblocks to strategic change and make winning and well-executed operational choices. The Mapping Method builds on best practices in strategy. We draw on insights from leading strategic thinkers, the ‘structured problem solving’ method introduced by McKinsey & Company and the scientific method. The use of issue hypotheses and strategy hypotheses offers a smart way to experiment and learn under uncertainty.

“New Frontiers for Productivity Research in Management and Business” (Special Issue of BRQ-Business Research Quarterly, vol. 21(4), 2018). Edited by Emili Grifell-Tatjé (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona) and C.A. Knox Lovell (The University of Queensland).
This Special Issue will spark the interest of readers in learning about business performance measurement methodologies and their considerable potential for guiding management practices and enhancing business performance, however it may be measured. Some papers adopt the econometric approach to analyze business performance, others adopt the mathematical programming approach, and all are compatible with both approaches. Some papers examine variants of productive efficiency, some examine competitiveness and some examine financial performance. In the final paper, ‘‘The Business Foundations of Social Economic Progress’’, Grifell-Tatjé, Lovell and Turon extend business performance measurement beyond the boundaries of an individual business to the society in which it operates, and develop an approach that shares some features with the corporate social responsibility (CSR) literature.

Scholarship and Doctoral Theses

Barnard, Art - As part of his research on International Entrepreneurship, he has been looking at a specific group of self-initiated expatriates in Germany, so-called 'expatriate entrepreneurs' or EXPs. As work progresses, he is finding evidence that this expatriate group may be further subdivided into previously unidentified groups of entrepreneurial activity. These findings are not only driving publishable work outside of his thesis but also creating a stream of future research into a relatively understudied area. He is looking for academics specializing in International Entrepreneurship in Germany or Europe in general to provide input on the state of knowledge and insights into the findings of this research. Any interested parties, please contact him This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..


Barreda, Marlene - Research in control has shown that the French hospital has undergone profound changes, notably through the introduction of accountability. Compliance with institutional pressure drives organizations to move towards new tools and principles that reinforce their external legitimacy. The same literature has shown that accountability infiltrates the medical sphere and that a new phenomenon occurs: doctors adopt hybridization role. The administrative sphere is no exception and is also subject to coercive pressure. The aim of our thesis is to contribute to this literature by analyzing the intra-organizational effects and roles of accountability on the medical logic in the French public hospital sector. To analyze these effects, we focus on accountability mechanisms such as information reporting (i.e. financial audit, budget practice). 


Holohan, James had his PhD thesis titled "An exploration of how the alignment of business and information systems strategies is practiced by information systems managers in Ireland's Institutes of Technology" accepted by Trinity College Dublin in September 2018.
The primary contribution of the study is the development of a mid-range theory in the form of a strategy-as-practice based taxonomy, depicting how the alignment of business and information systems strategies is practiced by information systems managers in Ireland's Institutes of Technology.

Stream conveners:
Dr Michal Izak, University of Roehampton
Dr Stefanie Reissner, University of Newcastle
Dr Sytze F. Kingma, VU Amsterdam
The past decades have witnessed an increase in flexible working practices, which have been largely induced by advances in mobile information and communication technologies. Recently, the predominance - and at times extremes - of flexible working has triggered backlash. As such, the risk of flexible working becoming ‘boundless’ is increasingly being recognized and addressed. Please visit http://business-school.open.ac.uk/events/11th-international-critical-management-studies-conference and see stream 11 for the full list of themes which we intend to explore.
