We will examine the historical origins, theoretical underpinnings and research methods used in leading research in each area. We will also discuss the potential implications of empirical research for different groups of users of research, including accounting policy makers and regulators.

One of the main aims of the seminar will be to develop students’ abilities to identify significant research questions and appropriate empirical methods. Emphasis will also be placed on data and institutional issues, and how these can present both constraints and opportunities for European researchers. Time will also be allowed for discussion of students’ own research plans, and for discussion of opportunities that exist for new research, especially in the European context.

Report on the 31st Workshop on Strategic Human Resource Management


31st Workshop on Strategic Human Resource Management


Dana B. Minbaeva (Copenhagen Business School, Denmark); Michael Segalla (HEC Paris, France); Bruno Staffelbach (University of Zurich, Switzerland); Cristina Simon (IE Business School, Spain).

This year, 53 participants from 36 universities in 16 countries attended the Workshop on Strategic Human Resource Management.

A broad range of topics related to Strategic Human Resource Management were presented and discussed in several parallel sessions:

  • Health and safety in HRM
  • Talent management, development, and training
  • HRM in new ways of work
  • Performance management
  • Employment relationship, social relationships at work, and leadership

Besides theoretical work, a lot of empirical studies were also presented – studies with an international focus, and relevance for practice. Next to more traditional topics such as performance management, leadership and development, a rather new stream of studies in health and safety complemented this year’s workshop.

For this workshop, a new approach was explored by asking participants in advance to choose one paper, read it in detail, and prepare questions and/or comments for the author(s). This preparation was voluntary. However, the preparation supported vivid discussions. Overall, participants pointed out the valuable feedback and comments from the audience as well as interesting input by learning and developing new perspectives.

We would like to thank the hosts and local organizers from IE Business School for hosting us in such a nice venue, for the impressive tour of the University (which is a former Domenican cloister), and for taking us to a very good restaurant with delicious, typical Segovian food.

The next workshop will be at the University of Lucerne, Switzerland on April 24-25, 2017.

The focus of next year’s workshop will be on practical relevance of scientific research. We would like to encourage a top HR manager to join the workshop, challenge our ideas, and create a link between research and practice. We are looking forward to discussing well positioned research (in progress) in the field of Strategic Human Resource Management.

Further information and details will be posted on the EIASM website soon.


Report on IPDMC 2016 - 23rd Innovation and Product Development Management Conference

On June 11-14, 2016, close to 200 researchers joined the 23rd EIASM Conference on Innovation and Product Development Management that took place in Glasgow, U.K. The University of Strathclyde hosted the event which was chaired by Prof. Susan Hart and Dr. Nuran Acur. The theme was Crossing Borders and Boundaries: The Changing Role of Innovation and Entrepreneurship. As envisaged by Prof. Christer Karlsson, founder of the Conference, the sessions offered participants a rich two-day academic experience. 26 countries were represented with big delegations of participants from U.K., Germany, the Netherlands, U.S.A, Denmark and Italy. Gilad Tiefenbrun CEO, Linn Products, an innovative family-firm from Glasgow, UK, which trades internationally, delivered the opening keynote address.  On the second morning, Prof. Susan Hart moderated a panel on Scottish Enterprise – Collaborative Open Innovation in Scotland. The speakers were drawn from University of Strathclyde, Scottish Enterprise, Royal Bank of Scotland, NHS, Scottish Power, and Glasgow City Council.

The conference programme featured 125 papers spread over 11 thematic tracks. The conference introduced two new tracks which were very successful: Open Innovation and New Trends in Innovation. In fact, Open Innovation attracted the highest number of papers, a theme which permeated the whole conference. All sessions were chaired actively and, with a climate for innovation, all learnt and appreciated the next steps in the development of the research topics.

Excellence was recognised in a number of ways...

The Winners of the 2016 Christer Karlsson Best Paper Award are:

Erwin Hofman, Dries Faems and Stephanie C. Schleimer,
for the paper entitled:
"The Performance Implications of Contractual Design: Toward a Configurational Perspective"

The Winners of the 2016 Thomas Hustad Best Paper Award are:

Laura Herbst, Monika C. Schumacher and Sabine Kuester,
for the paper entitled:
"Business Model Innovation: Four Approaches, One Goal"

The Runners-Up are:
Solmaz Sajadirad, Astrid Heidemann Lassen and Brian Vejrum Waehrens,
for the paper entitled:
"From Static To Dynamic Use Of Knowledge Transfer Objects And Its Effect On Innovation Performance"

Furthermore, a number of papers will receive invitations to submit to the two journals which support the conference – "Journal of Product Innovation Management" and "Creativity & Innovation Management".

The academic programme was preceded by the 9th Doctoral Seminar on Product Development Management. A faculty team of nine professors, led by Prof. John Christiansen of Copenhagen Business School, worked with the 19 PhD students. In addition to discussing the doctoral research papers and progress of each of the students, the Seminar also featured guidance on publication from Prof. Gloria Barczak, editor of the Journal Of Product Innovation Management, and Prof.  Petra De Weerd-Nederhof, past editor of Creativity & Innovation Management.

Finally, the Conference Dinner was enjoyed at Barony Hall, University of Strathclyde. The programme promised “Scottish Entertainment” – it delivered! What was enjoyed was a Scottish Cèilidh (traditional Scottish dance) in which all delegates participated with energy and enthusiasm. It was a great opportunity for colleagues to renew their friendships.

The 24th Innovation and Product Development Management Conference – IPDMC 2017
will be held
Sunday, June 11 to Tuesday, June 13, 2017,
at Reykjavik University in Reykjavik, Iceland.

Submission deadline: November 4, 2017

The associated Doctoral Workshop will take place from Saturday, June 10, to Sunday, June 11, 2017.

More details will be soon available on:

Report on MAR 2016 - Manufacturing Accounting Research Conference

MAR 2016 – the biennial Manufacturing Accounting Research Conference organized by the European Institute for Advanced Studies in Management (EIASM), was held in Lisbon, Portugal at Nova School of Business and Economics, June 15-17, 2016.

As has been the tradition, the MAR 2016 conference sought to bring together in a friendly and lively environment worldwide academics, researchers, and practitioners to debate on control, cost, and performance management related issues in a wide range of business organizations, in both manufacturing and service. The theme of the conference this year was "Using Cost and Performance Management Systems to Drive Innovation". It gathered about 50 participants coming from mostly European countries, but also from Japan and Australia, who had a special interest in the topic.

The Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA) and Electricidade de Portugal (EDP) sponsored the conference.

The event started with an opening speech of the local organizer of the conference, Maria Major, followed by a brief introduction delivered by CIMA’s Head of the Performance Management Research, Peter Spence. The programme of the conference included parallel sessions for paper presentations with assigned discussants as well as keynote speeches by distinguished speakers:

  • On the first day of the conference, Regine Slagmulder (Vlerick Business School, Belgium) presented an interesting review of the most important management accounting and control innovations and how practitioners can adopt them to enhance organizations’ performance.
  • Still on the same day, João Gouveia Carvalho, Head of the Management Planning and Control Department of EDP, discussed the challenges facing management control systems at the company following EDP’s internationalization.
  • On the second day, John Burns (Exeter Business School, UK) gave a critical and insightful talk on the meaning of innovation and the importance of stimulating a multidisciplinary and critical perspective in management accounting research.
  • Finally, on the last day of the conference, Petri Suomala (Tampere University of Technology, Finland) delivered an interesting speech about interventionist research in management accounting, and shed light on how academia and practitioners can fruitfully collaborate in generating new knowledge.

Papers presented in parallel sessions covered a wide variety of topics (ranging from performance measurement, product development, budgeting, mechanisms of control, use of incentives, customer relationships, and value creation, just to mention a few) and based on different research methods and theoretical perspectives. An interesting feature of the conference was to integrate PhD students in parallel sessions among senior researchers, which allowed them to gain valuable advice and suggestions for their research.

The social events were held at attractive spots around Lisbon: the Welcome Reception took place at "Palacete Henrique Mendonça", an historic building surrounded by a luxuriant garden in the heart of the city – and the Conference Dinner at "Museu da Cerveja", a typical Portuguese beer house in one of the most historic neighbourhoods of Lisbon.

To conclude, the MAR 2016 conference provided an excellent combination of academic presentations, plenary keynote speeches, and social events that motivated interesting discussion in a very pleasant and friendly research atmosphere.

EDAMBA Activities

EDAMBA Annual Meeting 2016
Kent, Canterbury, UK
August 21-23, 2016

Theme: Beyond Academic Outputs?
Research Impact and Multiple Doctoral Career Progression Paths in Business and Management

  • Should doctoral education focus exclusively on creating academic knowledge to be published in peer reviewed journals?
  • Should doctoral education instead create knowledge capacity that has a direct impact on policy, practice, and society? In this case, what type of specific training should be part of a doctoral studies curriculum?

The purpose of this two-day annual meeting is to find answers to some of these questions by bringing together doctoral program directors, academics, business leaders, and doctoral students to reflect on the rapidly changing landscape of doctoral research, training, and careers in business and management

Keynote Speakers:

  • Prof. Andrew Pettigrew, Emeritus Professor of Strategy and Organization at the Saïd Business School, University of Oxford and Senior Golding Fellow, Brasenose College.
    "Developing Engaged and Impactful Scholars"
  • Dr. Rebekah Smith McGloin, Research Capability Development Manager, Coventry University.
