Vancouver, BC, CanadaOpening GovernanceProgram Chair: Anita M McGahan
The theme of the 2015 conference, Opening Governance, invites
members to consider opportunities to improve the effectiveness and
creativity of organizations by restructuring systems at the highest
organizational levels. The term 'governance' refers to leadership
systems, managerial control protocols, property rights, decision
rights, and other practices that give organizations their authority
and mandates for action. Opening governance involves revisiting
these practices especially in light of big data, crowdsourcing, and
other emerging digital technologies that expand the information and
expertise available to organizational leaders. How and when should
managers open governance practices to involvement by engaged
stakeholders? What advances and problems arise from transparency in
decision making? The Opening Governance theme also points to
fundamental questions about how various types of organization forms
compete to govern valuable resources. What are the tradeoffs
associated with pursuing a specific value-creation opportunity
under the governance structure of an investor-owned corporation as
opposed to a privately held corporation, a B Corporation, or even a
licensing arrangement or non-profit organization? How can
organizations work more effectively with governmental agencies and
foundations to [more...]

AMP Editor Timothy M. Devinney discusses consumer social responsibility.
As was made public last month, Swets
& Zeitlinger Group B.V. and Swets Information Services B.V.
have been declared bankrupt. Academy of Management library
customers are exposed to a definite risk if they continue to submit
payments to Swets for any AOM orders with Swets.
Our concern is specific to all
payments made to Swets for 2014 and any 2015 library subscriptions.
Our reason for making this announcement is to control and reduce
the potential impact this situation might have on your institution
and give you the time to consider your options before committing to
your 2015 library subscriptions and payment options.
We strongly suggest that you
consider using alternative agents for any existing or planned AOM
library subscriptions or contact the Academy directly.
We would like to assure our valued
library customers that we will do everything in our power to reduce
the impact of this unfortunate situation, subject to any
constraints the Academy may face in this process.
Please contact the Academy
of Management directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
should you have any questions or concerns
regarding your subscription.
