Expected papers

The scientific and programme committee of the 2nd MIE conference invites scholars and practioners to submit abstracts to be considered for presentation. The conference theme is as follows “Toward a management of paradoxes: Uncertainty and imperatives of excellence”. In that respect, submissions that particularly, but not exclusively, relate to the conference theme are encouraged.Contributors have the opportunity to present their researches either in parallel sessions or in poster sessions. Doctoral workshops will be provided as well.We welcome both theoretical contributions and empirical findings related to the conference topic. In fact, we are interested in focusing on a set of paradoxes that generate tensions at the organizational level. As mentioned by Zhand & Han (forthcoming) “Paradoxes are fundamental catalysts for corporate evolution”. Time brings uncertainty and a lot of contradictions. By paying attention to this particular reality, we aim to enhance understandings regarding interconnections and synchronicity that managers and leaders have to deal with.Various examples show that organizations face paradoxical tensions since they must simultaneously meet opposite objectives, such as:

  • Cooperating while competing;
  • Establishing routines while encouraging risks
  • Innovating while sanctioning errors;
  • Increasing performance while being ethics;
  • Exploring while exploiting;
  • Empowering while controlling, and so forth.

Individuals also experience tensions; they need to adopt specific behavior mindset. Some authors talk about “paradoxical behavior”, others consider “both/and” cognition or holistic and complex cognitive schema. We aim through this conference to provide better understanding of how managers can deal with such strategic dualities? How to reconcile between opposite objectives? How can they embrace managerial reality which requires a lot of tradeoffs and become more and more uncertain?Furthermore, managers’ responses to paradoxes are co-constructed with others (Kelle et al., 2019).

We hope receiving papers dealing with social interconnections and challenges facing managers in resolving competing imperatives. In fact, management practices are continually changing and this change can be viewed through multiple lenses, that’s why conference themes include, but are not limited to:

  • Strategy
  • Leadership
  • Media and communication
  • Tourism
  • E-management and technology
  • Corporate finance strategies
  • Social networks
  • Smart cities and regions
