Letter from President, Thomas Durand, and VP External Relations, Xavier Castañer

Dear Colleagues,

Every year, EURAM invites presidents of other academic management societies to convene during the EURAM conference in what we call the Presidential Activities. In Reykjavik in June 2018, 20 colleagues representing the governance of 15 partner societies participated in lively discussions on the state of management research in Europe and across the world. Here are some of the key points of the discussions we had with them and some of the action initiatives EURAM is taking to address them.

(A full summary including the list of participating associations and their representatives is posted on our EURAM website).


I- Diagnosis and possible remedies

1- Nowadays, the assessment of research (and almost overall faculty) quality predominantly focuses on article publications (based on their citations and their journals’ impact factor) which significantly drives faculty hiring and promotion as well as program and school accreditation, and deteriorates researchers’ balance between 'pay rent' and 'love'[1].

Proposal: give books - which allow for a more holistic treatment of a topic - equal standing in faculty hiring and promotion decisions as well as in accreditation criteria.

2- Scientific language doesn't facilitate communication with practitioners (managerial understanding of published research).

Proposal: create new publication outlets written in a language which is understandable to managers (Note that practitioner journals such as California Management Review, Harvard Business Review, Sloan Management Review and Strategy & Business, as well as the more research-based Behavioral Science and Policy, already exist.). EURAM is launching the EURAM Sparks initiative to deal with this issue.

3- The currently dominant reductionist scientific approach:

a. generates segmentation of organizational phenomena in fragmented research streams as well as sometimes pseudo innovation often when dealing with apparently new phenomena (introducing supposedly new terms which give rise to new, self-referential research streams which often ignore prior contributions)

b. promotes quantitative method sophistication for a more correct identification (estimation) of causal effects – which is necessary – to the detriment of building on existing literature and theories given rise to a scholarship crisis and doesn't address managerial/organizational complexity in a holistic way as managers and other employees experience it.


a. promote seminars on management classics in PhD programs

b. promote the 'old' monograph format for a PhD thesis (which allows for a more holistic treatment) rather than the 3 ('ready to publish') papers' structure

c. recommend dropping publication requirements to allow PhD thesis defense

4- The diffusion across the world (Europe, Asia and Latin America) of the USA tenure track model associated with certain (article) requirements for tenure has brought:

a. the explosion of submissions to journals and

b. a strong segmentation of domestic markets in two tiers.

Proposal: Include books in tenure criteria.


II- How to deal with the problems diagnosed

We discussed two possible approaches: bottom-up and top-down.

Bottom up approach:

1- Rebalance 'pay rent' (top tier journals) and 'love' (more practice/policy oriented 'relevant' journals)

2- Keep/have review journals (i.e. journals which include review articles, i.e. see the recent launch of the Strategic Management Review and the success of the annual review issue of Journal of Management, the Academy of Management Annals and BSP)

3- Make an effort to promote the role of management research in terms of its potential contribution to policy debates and policy implementation and

4- Convince colleagues about the importance of impact (of management research).


Top-down approach: publication of a manifesto dealing with

1- Reigniting scholarship by:

a. Revising the relative importance of journal rankings vs books,

b. Reintroducing a substantial literature review section in articles rather than just 1 page and half motivation at the beginning of the article and

c. Reviewing PhD programs' duration, structure (promote monograph vs 3 papers' structure) and requirements (no publication requirement for thesis defense).

2- Promoting knowledge diffusion through:

a. Greater valorization of books

b. Open access?

The above are stimulating items that can contribute to further discuss and rethink the way we design, conduct and publish our research. Quite a challenge, indeed.

Building on last year discussions, this year the Presidential activities in Lisbon will focus on a key component of the system: faculty career management, including the criteria for recruitment, promotion and development.

[1] This resembles the crowding out of economic incentives on intrinsic motivation (e.g. Frey, B. S. and Jegen, R 2001. Motivation crowding theory. Journal of Economic Surveys, 15 (5): 589–611).

EURAM Annual Conferences


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


Early Bird Registration Deadline: 18 April 2019

Authors Registration Deadline: 25 April 2019 


EURAM 2019 in Lisbon: Exploring the future of management

Dear Friends,

June is arriving and with it there will be summer and EURAM 2019, a tradition that many of us are waiting for. A large team has been working for almost a year to prepare an inviting and memorable event, a platform for all of us to learn and share. This year the conference had around 2000 papers submitted, a record number that has rendered the selection even more difficult. So, we truly hope that those authors with accepted papers will put Lisbon in their agenda and will do their best to join us in this beautiful city.

Lisbon is a place that welcomes and takes good care of its visitors. The members of the local Committee will not spare efforts for all of you to feel comfortable. Following last year’s introduction of an app we have also prepared one that may be downloaded in early June and will assist you in moving around the conference and in networking with other participants.

The main theme of the conference suggests an exploration into the future of management. Many colleagues have accepted this challenge and submitted papers that invite us to think in what lies ahead. In the plenary sessions, the uncertain future of Europe will be discussed, as well as the role of artificial intelligence in the way organizations operate and are managed.

Facts, Fashion and Fado

These three Fs are sub-themes of EURAM 2019 and also drive the daily life of many academics and practitioners. On the one hand we defend a facts and evidence-based theory of management; on the other, fashions of unknown origin erupt from time to time. In the end, all of them have the same fado (destiny): to be subject to the rule of financial markets.

While in Lisbon, walking through the meander of the many stone paved streets or enjoying the fresh breeze of the river, do not forget to experience fado yourself. You may listen to this expressive and very emotional kind of music while relishing in the traditionally honest and enticing Portuguese food. 

Be most welcome to Lisbon!

We, the local team and EURAM 2019 wait for you on June 26!

EURAM Early Career Colloquium

Celebrating 10 years of networking and career building in European Management Research

Dates: 27 February - 1 March 2019

Report on the 10th EURAM Early Career Colloquium (2019)

“Leveraging the Power of European Research Networks”

The 10th EURAM Early Career Colloquium was held at the Friedrich-Alexander Universität (FAU) in Nuremberg and Erlangen from February 27 to March 1st, 2019. To celebrate this 10th anniversary, the EECC returned to where it had all started in 2009. The event was impeccably organized by Professors Albrecht Fritzsche and Kathrin M. Möslein, both affiliated with the hosting university.

The Colloquium brought together 18 participants and 10 mentors and keynote speakers. Each junior faculty participant got to present his/her paper during a roundtable and receive detailed feedback from the other participants at the roundtable as well as from one of the mentors (including the EURAM President, Prof. Thomas Durand). In addition, a “President’s Panel” moderated by Prof. Kathrin Möslein, one of the Colloquium organizers and a Vice-President of FAU, brought together senior academics such as former EURAM Presidents Profs. Sibel Yamak and Peter McKiernan, current EURAM President Prof. Thomas Durand and senior managers from industry to discuss how business and academia can forge closer ties in order to enhance the quality and relevance of management research. Participants also got to work in groups and carry out a LEGO-based exercise about prototyping a research project they could consider undertaking together.

In addition to the purely academic programme, several social events were organized as part of this year’s Colloquium. We first participated in a very stimulating “scavenger hunt” that helped participants and mentors “break the ice” and also allowed all involved to discover many of the landmarks and sights of Nuremberg. We also shared two very friendly dinners during which we got to taste typical Bavarian dishes such as pizza (???) and bratwurst. Both dinners provided a setting in which to continue the discussions – both academic and personal – that had been initiated during the academic sessions.

Overall, the 10th EURAM Early Career Colloquium was a most pleasant experience for all involved. I am also confident the junior faculty who participated found it was a very valuable experience which has helped them think differently about their research and the development of their academic career.

I would like to take this opportunity to once again thank Professors Albrecht Fritzsche and Kathrin M. Möslein who agreed to once again organize the 10th anniversary edition of the EURAM Early Career Colloquium in Nuremberg, managed it very skillfully and ultimately made it a great success on all dimensions.

[SIG 02 - COGO - Corporate Governance] The Oxford Handbook of the Corporation, OUP 2019 has just been published. Edited by Thomas Clarke, Justin O'Brien and Charles O'Kelley this major work assesses the contemporary relevance, purpose, and performance of the corporation. The focus of this work is the transformative impact of innovation and change upon corporate structure, purpose, and operation. In questioning the fundamental purpose and performance of the corporation, this Handbook continues a tradition commenced by Berle and Means, and contributed to by generations of business scholars. What is the corporation and what is it becoming? To whom is the corporation responsible, and who should judge the ultimate performance of corporations? By investigating the origins, development, strategies, and theories of corporations, this volume provides a richer theoretical account of the corporation and its contested future.

Business impacts, new frameworks and managerial implication
McGrawHill Editor (forthcoming)

The world of banking is changing for several reasons. While previously a purely money-making entity, the industry is enlarging and expanding on account of the inherent interconnected nature of finance with the everyday lives of its customers. The ground rules for success have altered the way customers bank. New financial service providers, namely Fintech, are go-ing beyond customer-facing applications and services to include all ele-ments of the financial services production process. A new generation of services and financial intermediation frameworks are transforming the industry.

Taking a transdisciplinary approach, Banks and Banking: digital transformation and the hype of Fintech is a comprehensive analysis of how conventional banking is undergoing a deep transformation and meeting the challenges of Fintech and other financial services providers. It outlines the importance of considering the traditional fundamentals of banking and fitting them into the modern times, where digital technologies are perva-sive and the industry is experiencing a deep transformation. Visions, strategies, business models and actions are a conscious step away from the past.

There are good reasons to believe that this evolution will continue, because technological changes, customer habits and regulation are co-evolving. Both banks and Fintech will have to face ever-changing conditions and develop the ability to balance short-term targets and long-term goals, as well as short-term moves and a longer-term vision.
This book is a valuable resource for students, researchers and practition-ers interested in banking, bank management, business models and strategies willing to create value, from both bank and Fintech perspectives.



[SIG 14 - General Track] A new study by Ungureanu and colleagues in ORGANIZATION STUDIES (online first) https://journals.sagepub.com/doi/full/10.1177/0170840618765575 discusses how and why decision dysfunctions such as INDECISION, PROCRASTINATION and ESCLATION OF COMMITMENT pile up in hybrid (cross-sector) partnerships as soon as partners try to solve them. The article explores the role of RISK-OPPORTUNITY TENSIONS in complex collaborations and that of PARTNERSHIP MATERIALITY, and in particular the role of COLLABORATIVE SPACES for innovation such as SCIENCE PARKS. The study is part of a larger project called “Understanding Hybrid Interorganizational Partnerships: Identity Formation, Decision Pathologies, Business Model Innovation and Governance Change” more info about the project here: https://www.researchgate.net/project/Understanding-Hybrid-Interorganizational-Partnerships-Identity-Formation-Decision-Pathologies-Business-Model-Innovation-and-Governance-Change

[SIG 14 - General Track] Are management academics and practitioners able to understand each other's knowledge and roles when they meet? A new study by Paula Ungureanu and Fabiola Bertolotti (University of Modena & Reggio Emilia) published in the December issue of Academy of Management Learning and Education https://journals.aom.org/doi/abs/10.5465/amle.2016.0095 reveals the trial and error strategies that academics and managers adopt to deal with the uncertainties of face-to-face encounters in executive classrooms. The paper contributes to literatures on knowledge transfer, boundary management and role management, and to the theory-practice debate in management. It is part of a larger project called “Exploring the relationship between theory and practice in management and organization studies”. More info here: https://www.researchgate.net/project/Exploring-the-relationship-between-theory-and-practice-in-management-and-organization-studies.

Scholarship and Doctoral Theses

[SIG 14 - General Track] Nizamidou Christina defended her PhD Thesis, “Crisis Management: The strategic role of HR Department in dealing with crisis” which was accepted in January 2019 at the University of Macedonia, Greece under the supervision of Prof. Fotis Vouzas. The Thesis focuses on the strategic role that the HR Department may undertake as a member of an organization’s Crisis Management Team. A research model was conceptualized in order to study the case of the Greek organizations, in terms of their familiarization with the CM field and the role of their HRD. Following the research, the evaluation of the findings takes place as well as the comparison between the Greek reality and the international standards.




[SIG 05 - GRDO - Gender, Race, and Diversity in Organisations] Diversity & Inclusion: A Research Proposal Framework is aimed at assisting doctoral candidates and early-career researchers and their supervisors globally, this book is the first of its type to address the challenges faced by students when proposing new programs of research in the disciplines of gender, race, identity, indigeneity, and diversity within management and business. The problems researchers face derive from a lack of familiarity with the needed alignment of the methodology, conceptual framework, and the nature of epistemologies used in creating a coherent proposal. This results in project delays and unnecessary time in the review as doctoral students and committees attempt to provide the required alignment. Please see: Diversity & Inclusion link for more information.

[SIG 14 - General Track] Call for papers on “sustainable seaports”

Ports are important nodes in the global supply chain and transportation network. Ports contribute to a particular country or region from the economic perspective; however, they can also cause severe environmental and social issues. Although ports in Asia are competitive and efficient in their operations, developed countries are more advanced in supporting the sustainable development of seaports. There is an urgent need to explore the sustainability of seaports from the environmental, social and economic perspectives. Dalian Maritime University, China and University of Southampton, UK are hereby delighted to launch the “The 1st Sustainable Seaports Conference”. We warmly welcome academic researchers, practitioners, non-government organisations and industry associations who are involved in or interested in sustainable seaports to participate in this event.
