- EURAM 2011 Annual Conference "Management Culture in the 21st Century"
- Tallinn, Estonian Business School, Estonia
- The overall theme of the EURAM 2011 Annual Conference is the management of culture in organisations. Culture is a complex, pervasive and deeply grounded set of assumptions. Culture represents valid organisational past experiences. It could be observed as a system that amalgamates values, beliefs, strategies, behaviours, goals and philosophies. Culture transfers these from individual to individual, from group to group, and from generation to generation. Culture may form traditions and norms and also influence the creation of routines and procedures which are useful to adopt in order to achieve successful and sustainable development. However, this positive loop can turn into a negative one. Sometimes organisations persist in their consolidated behaviours in front of a dramatically changing environment, resulting in failures. In these situations, which parts of culture are worth maintaining and which ones should be renewed? What type of culture helps to build successful and sustainable businesses in the 21st century? What can we learn from the past as well as from previous cultures? How can we transfer this knowledge across borders? You are now invited to submit proposals for the EURAM 2011 meeting. Any submissions within management research are invited, but submissions covering the topic of the management of culture are particularly encouraged.[gem?_?? den Informationen des Anbieters - according to site editor's information]
