2nd EIASM Interdisciplinary Leader Award

The EIASM Board is delighted to announce that, further to the Call for Nominations made in October 2016, the 2nd EIASM Interdisciplinary Leader Award will be handed over to Professor Bent FLYVBJERG, BT Professor and Chair of Major Programme Management at Oxford University’s Said Business School. Professor Flyvbjerg’s CV and research projects can be seen on this website:

This award acknowledges Professor Flyvbjerg’s exemplary contributions in interdisciplinary research. EIASM believes that interdisciplinarity is fundamental in ensuring that theory-building, empirical research, education, and institution-building in management, integrate knowledge and progress in an era of increasing specialization. This is essential to further develop management as a field that is able to advance theoretically, to provide relevant knowledge for students and practitioners, and to ultimately help deal with the grand and highly complex challenges of contemporary society.

The 2nd EIASM Interdisciplinary Leader Award will be presented during the EIASM Academic Council meeting to take place in Brussels in the Spring of 2018 (dates to be announced). On this occasion, Professor Flyvbjerg will give a keynote speech, followed by a panel discussion and an evening dinner.

Report on the 32nd Workshop on Strategic Human Resource Management

From April 24-25, 2017, an international group of 40 academics met at the University of Lucerne in Switzerland to discuss current research on the topic of strategic human resource management.

The workshop participants were from 14 different countries, which enabled discussion of the individuals’ research projects from different cultural angles. Many different questions within the topic strategic HRM were addressed, ranging from employee mobility, to networking, job content and environment, social and organizational support, innovation and turnover.

The classical workshop design of presentations and feedback sessions was enriched by two sessions focusing on publication strategies, one session focusing on practical relevance of strategic human resource management, and a social event (dinner with cheese fondue in a traditional Swiss restaurant).

For the two sessions on Publication Strategies, the workshop chairpersons invited Pawan Budhwar, the associate editor of Human Resource Management and co-editor-in-chief of British Journal of Management. During two sessions the participants discussed the process of publishing in the named journals, addressing questions such as: How to choose a journal? What constitutes a valuable contribution? In what style should it be written? How to avoid a desk rejection? What do the reviewers look for? This is the very first time the EIASM workshop on SHRM has done a session on publication strategies. We received some very good feedback and are devoted to continue organizing sessions with editors in the future.

For the session on Practical Relevance, the workshop chairpersons invited Peter Ziswiler, head HR of Georg Fischer (a multinational Swiss company operating in the mechanical and electrical engineering industry) who presented an inspiring case on the relevance of aligning HR strategy with business strategy.

The 33rd SHRM Workshop will take place on April 5-6, 2018. The location will be announced soon.

Receiving very positive feedback on the workshop format from participants, we will keep the format of the three pillars workshop for developing papers, discussion on publishing papers, and relevance of strategic HRM in practice. The active contributions and reflective audience created a fruitful atmosphere for discussions and feedback. We are very much looking forward to following up the discussion next year and to seeing the development in research projects that were introduced this past April, as well as to learning about new ideas and projects.

EDAMBA Activities

2017 EDAMBA Annual Meeting & General Assembly
Venice, Italy, August 27-29, 2017

Doctoral programs in Management and Business Administration play a pivotal role, in developing a pool of young and inspired researchers who could contribute to address these major challenges either as academics or as leaders of research centers, private and public companies or consultant firms. How could we build better doctoral programs crossing geographical and cultural boundaries through international collaborations? Which interdisciplinary teaching programs help to develop research projects that could grasp the new phenomena? Which institutions should doctoral programs collaborate with, to enrich the capacity of young scholars to raise the relevance of their research? These are the questions the EDAMBA Annual Meeting, held by Ca’ Foscari University, will address.
