2019 Professional Development Workshops: Call for
Management (IM) Division invites submissions for Professional Development
Workshops (PDWs) at the 2019 Annual Meeting in Boston. Special consideration
will be given to PDW proposals that connect with the conference theme of “Understanding the Inclusive
Organization”. This theme is particularly salient for the IM Division, given that
members of IM division are from diverse backgrounds working in organizations in
different cultural, economic and political contexts. This theme is of
particular importance to IM Division members.
The IM Division
focuses on content pertaining to the theory, research, and practice of
management that has a cross border, cross-cultural, or comparative dimension.
Major topics include, but are not limited to: the cross-border management of
operations, including multi-country, multi-unit, strategy formulation and
implementation; evolving forms and management practices in cross-border
business; the cross-border differential impact of cultural, social, economic,
technological, political, and other institutional forces on strategies,
organizational forms, and management practices; the international
competitiveness of firms, industries, and nations; and comparative management
studies involving two or more countries. To learn more about the IM Division,
visit our website at https://im.aom.org/.
Our goal for the
PDWs is to provide participants with opportunities to enhance their
professional and personal skills relevant to IM-related scholarship and
teaching including macro and micro topics. With this in mind, we seek
innovative, provocative, and exciting proposals that bring together an
international community of scholars interested in enhancing research and
teaching in the broad field of International Management.
The format for PDW
sessions is highly flexible. PDWs may consist of workshops, panels, round-table
discussions, training sessions, etc. – meaningful interaction is the key.
As such, PDWs provide opportunities to experiment, with respect to both content
and format, that are typically beyond the scope of regular paper sessions. We
seek creative and interactive proposals that promote scholarship or teaching
and involve not only other AOM divisions, but also firms, not-for-profit
organizations, consultancies, NGOs, and public sector organizations.
The 2019 PDW
sessions will be held between Friday, August 9th and Saturday,
August 10th, 2019 from 8:00 AM to 8:00PM. See the Annual Meeting website for additional
information about the conference.
Submissions: If you are
interested in organizing or being involved in a PDW in any way, please contact
the IM Division’s PDW Chair, Katherine Xin (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Final PDW submissions must
be made through the AOM submission system website. The
deadline for submissions is Tuesday, January 15, 2019 at 5:00 PM ET (NY
Time). This system opens in late November 2018.
