CfP: Open Organizations for an Open Society? Practicing Openness in Innovation, Strategy and Beyond

EGOS2015-AthensLeonhard Dobusch, Georg von Krogh and Richard Whittington are convenors of a sub-theme at the upcoming 31st EGOS Colloquium, July 2-4 2015 in Athens, Greece, on “Open Organizations for an Open Society? Practicing Openness in Innovation, Strategy and Beyond“.

Excerpt from the call for short papers:

 [O]n the level of organizational practices, we need more research that addresses the challenges implied by greater openness in terms of organizational structures, boundaries and culture. And on a broader level, the boom of openness, as recently pointed out by Nathaniel Tkacz (2012), is curious within a supposedly already-open society (Popper, 1971). Why is there such a demand for openness and what does this tell us about society at large?

The growing popularity and diversity of openness as a concept deserve more comprehensive theories of openness, looking at both limits and potentials of organizational openness. This sub-theme, therefore, seeks to advance our understanding of openness in different fields.

Deadline for submission of short papers (3.000 words) is January 12, 2015.
