Letter from President 

As I am taking over EURAM’s presidency, let me congratulate Sibel Yamak for her great leadership. Thanks to her hard work and efforts with the members of the Executive Committee, the house is in order and on the move. EURAM 2018 Annual Conference was a great success! We had record number of participants for both the regular conference programme and doctoral colloquium! We are all thankful to our Local Organising Committee, Conference Programme Committee, Doctoral Colloquium Chairs, our reviewers and all our SIGs who did a superb job in dealing with over 2000 submissions.

I intend to work in continuity with what Sibel Yamak and her team has done.

Let me summarise what I see as key points of a strategy for EURAM, starting by expressing our mission.

The European Academy of Management aims at developing Management Research and Education to improve knowledge and practice about how to lead organised collective action. EURAM was founded to build a community of engaged management scholars valuing the European culture and research traditions as many European (and non-European) management academics were looking for an academy where they would feel more at home than in other existing management learned societies.

To serve its purpose and its various stakeholders, it may be worth expressing our strategic intents at EURAM. 

1-EURAM promotes diversity in its widest sense, in a friendly and professional forum.

EURAM promotes variety of all sorts, e.g. in research topics for scholarly enquiry, methodologies, forms of organisations, publication format and types of journals, languages used, audience targeted, etc. This has very strong implications. Among other things, this implies that EURAM supports Excellence in Research of all sorts and from a variety of perspectives, not just that captured by standard metrics such as rankings and journal lists. EURAM is about contributing and exchanging novel ideas in a friendly atmosphere among rigorous, innovative professional scholars.

2-EURAM is embedded in European Values and intends to remain so while reaching in and out.

EURAM has a natural base in Europe and embraces a variety of cultures and languages. It is connected to the national learned societies and academies in Europe while reaching out for the world.  This means that EURAM is listening carefully and respectfully to other perspectives on management while sharing its members’ contribution and experience in return.

3-EURAM intends to better connect management academia, including research, to practice.

EURAM acts to bridge the widening gap between management scholars and management practitioners. EURAM creates vehicles that permit interaction between both worlds of research and practice, while contributing to protect research from undue pressures that may arise from third parties.

4-EURAM intends to better connect research to management education.

EURAM acts to better connect production and dissemination of new knowledge. This means articulating management research and education. Undergraduate management education, MBA vs MSc in management, DBA, Life-long learning or distant learning / e-learning are typical topics of interest. Although diversity is of the essence, EURAM recognises that Education is a key pillar among the three main contributions of academic life (research, education, institutional engagement).

5-EURAM intends to help management academics also serve society at large.

EURAM acts to serve the needs of society by contributing to some of the public debates where a point of view informed by management research may bring value. EURAM acts to promote education, scholarly enquiry and actions contributing to public good, wellbeing in society and inclusiveness.

6-EURAM offers an array of services and activities to the members.

EURAM provides services and activities (a platform to foster interaction; training and meeting opportunities at the conference, Early Career Colloquium, Doctoral colloquium, Research Directors Programme; Strategic Interest Groups; Awards; e-Directory; EMR; Research Grants and similar services to be developed according to needs expressed and/or identified.)

7-EURAM influences the rules of the game by producing soft law for our academic community

The rules of the game that increasingly prevail in and around Business Schools tend to severely constrain our academic activities (for the good to a certain extent, and for the bad to a significant extent). EURAM intends to influence the future evolution of these rules to favor diversity and openness. This is done by producing soft law in the form of EURAM position papers that discuss an issue (e.g. the format of a PhD dissertation; the importance of publishing books not just papers; how to deal with plagiarism; how to contribute to promote responsible research and research integrity; etc.)

8-EURAM offers a voice for the Management academic community

EURAM intends to develop a presence in the media, in government and in business circles to convey its messages, generate awareness for the issues it raises, generate recognition for its contribution and resources for its activities.

Along those lines, summarised below, we have plenty to do.

Progress on ongoing and newly launched research projects.

April 2018, Tomoko Oikawa did the presentation titled ‘Regional economy structure analysis towards sustainable economy: Regional economic circulation analysis as municipality’s egeneration strategy in Japan’ in the international conference in Demure in Turkey. It is based on the theory by a Japanese prof. Nakamura (Ryōhei), who has had the collaboration with numerous municipalities in Japan. The collaboration is aimed at for a small- or medium-sized town to provide strategy and to transform into sustainable independent economy.

He conducted a small research by interviewing the village manager in the municipality in Demure, which is the hometown of prof. in Usak University in Turkey.  A project on transformation of Demure towards sustainable economy will be launched. This would be a step to regeneration of a small- or medium-sized town in Ireland.

There is a growing interest for positive psychology at organizational management. Employees’ well-being has been a matter of focus, for its impact on employees’ work performance. Models of well-being are limited in explaining employee well-being, whereby predicting work performance. This recently completed doctoral thesis (2017) has proposed a broader, multi-dimensional well-being construct, with a holistic perspective –Employee Wholeness, that predicts employee performance. 
The study proposed a holistic composite well-being construct, would relatively more strongly affect work performance, than the effect of its individual dimensions. Results showed that employees’ well-being is explained with a composite construct of seven dimensions: (1)career success, (2)emotional intelligence, (3)psychological capital, (4)engagement, (5)general satisfaction, (6)work-life balance, and (7)authentic functioning. Dominant factors predicting performance are meaning and purpose, motivation and self-management skills, self-efficacy and hope, enjoyment from work.

Piero Formica and Martin Curley (Editors), EXPLORING THE CULTURE OF OPEN INNOVATION. Towards an Altruistic Model of Economy, Emerald Group Publishing, August 2018
Acclaimed entrepreneurship and innovation scholar Piero Formica, along with a strong and diverse cast of international contributors, explore the world of Open Innovation in this volume. 
In the knowledge economy, greater togetherness is the prerequisite for innovating and having more: selflessness extends scope while selfishness increases limitations. But human beings are not automatically attracted to innovation: between the two lies culture and cultural values vary widely, with the egoistic accent or the altruistic intonation setting the scene. In the representations of open innovation, we submit to the reader’s attention, selfishness and selflessness are active in the cultural space.

Research Networks and Centres

EUMENTORSTEM (http://www.eumentorstem.eu/) is an Erasmus+ project aiming at supporting the employability of migrant women with a STEM background (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics), either as employee or as entrepreneurs. It is led by the Department of Management of the University of Bologna (Italy) and involves British, Greek, Hungarian and Swedish partner organizations.
The team of the project has recently concluded an exploratory research that will inform the subsequent development of innovative Mentoring & Coaching learning and training materials targeting both migrant women and the professionals interacting with this group of beneficiaries.
The research has employed qualitative and quantitative methods to identify structural and individual barriers preventing migrant women in STEM from becoming active in the labour market; outline the background situation in each partner country in terms of migration patterns, available training and support opportunities for migrant women in STEM and training tools for career advisor and educators.
The report of the research is available online at: http://www.eumentorstem.eu/outputs/deliverables/.

Want your students to think more creatively? Then teach them at lunchtime. In a recent study conducted by Dermot Breslin, University of Sheffield, UK, groups of students were found to generate twice as many ideas when they were quizzed around midday, compared with the start or the end of the working day. Writing in the journal Studies in Higher Education, Dr Breslin says that “the midday period represents a unique opportunity for group creativity within the working day”. The results are thought to reflect peaks in socialisation, alertness and arousal that are believed to occur about four hours after waking and have been evidenced by previous studies. Higher education institutions should thus consider scheduling classes that require group creativity in students around lunchtime in response to the research.

Over 60 doctoral students and faculty met together for the 8th International Doctoral Consortium in Delhi, India. The theme was postcolonialism and decolonization - explored through a series of workshops. The broadly qualitative and critical consortium is rare in its international focus - in terms of students, faculty, key notes, and the geopolitical location of sponsoring business schools - covering every continent on the globe.  In 2016 IDC6 was held in Canada, IDC7 was held in Finland and we are planning for IDC9 in Mexico.
