|Description:||11th World Congress of the International Federation of Scholarly Associations of Management IFSAM 2012 "Management Re-imagined"|
|Location:||Limerick, Kemmy Business School in the University of Limerick, Ireland|
|Subject:||The theme of the 2012 World Congress is Management Re-imagined. Central elements of management theory, research, pedagogy and practice have all come under scrutiny in recent years in the context of the global world in which we now live. The rigour and the relevance of our scholarship, an on-going ethnocentrism informing the body of knowledge, a dearth of contextualisation in the research effort, an enduring academic-practice divide, coupled with a concern about the extent to which we have engendered a capacity for professionalism among our graduates, have all been brought into sharp relief as a result of the recent crises. These are central charges which demand a considered response from business and management scholars in order that we might reinstate our legitimacy. Against this backdrop, our ambition for IFSAM 2012 is to provide a truly global forum for debating the state of our field and generating a capacity for action. We invite you to join us in this debate in order that we might develop and advance a credible, defensible and meaningful route map for the future. To assist in charting a course though this complexity, we have identified 22 all-encompassing Congress Tracks covering all the major fields in management. In addition, we will host a Doctoral Consortium, and Early Career Consortium and 8 Regional Forums on the contours of management scholarship around the globe.
