Call for Participants for AOM 2021 - Call for Manuscripts

Submitted by AFAM Mensah on Tue, 05/11/2021 - 12:57am

The purpose of this PDW session is to assist early career scholars focusing on management in Africa who have limited experience in publishing high impact research to complete a high quality research paper for later submission. The PDW will help early career scholars to understand the key elements of writing an empirical paper for publication through one-to

-one developmental feedback in a supportive environment. Second, these developmental relationships will continue after the 2021 Academy of Management meeting as both members work toward the goal of getting the manuscript submitted and published in a top-tier journal. Thus, a unique aspect of this initiative is that the developmental relationship is goal-directed; it is focused on a specific task (improving a drafted manuscript) that leads to critical short- term results (publication), more publications on management in Africa, and ultimately participants’ long-term productivity as a management scholar.

African Leadership: Call for Proposals

Effective leadership is one of the essential components of thriving nations and organizations in any sector, particularly in the emerging context of the 4th Industrial Revolution (Bonciu, 2017; Zucconi, 2016). Leadership, though, is a complex construct that defies simple explanations or single approaches (Liu, 2015). We live in a time of considerable uncertainty (Rodriguez & Rodriguez, 2015), with seemingly increasing turbulence and divisions, which require different approaches to leadership (Bernstein, 2014; Lawrence, 2013).
