Short Description: 

The Management Theory General Track invites contributions to the fields of management and organisation theory. Open to all paradigms, we welcome papers that address the general significance of theory in our fields or reappraise classical key concepts and their adequacy to the post-millennium context. Submission may be fascinated with smallest details or grandest narratives of management and organisation theory. We are also keen to hear from examples of theory in action as well as exemplars of theories that resist application. Yet another set of contributions might explore futures of management and organization theory. Management Theory General Track is your track if you wish to meet and discuss with a theory-oriented, field experienced, and paradigmatically diverse group of researchers in management and organization.
