30th EGOS Colloquium explores contexts for business

Knowing how organisations work and the contexts in which they operate is very important for business, especially after unprecedented levels of economic development over the last three decades. Making a collective view of such studies is the focus of the European Group for Organizational Studies (EGOS). This year, its annual conference was hosted at Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University (RSM).



EGOS’s 30th annual Colloquium in July was themed Re-imagining, Rethinking, Reshaping: Organizational Scholarship in Unsettled Times. The schedule of presentations and plenary sessions addressed three questions:

  • How can organisations generate profits and benefits contributing to human development without compromising or jeopardising the well-being of other societies or future generations?
  • What are the implications of the current economic and social challenges for living, for the design of organisations, and in support for society?
  • How can organisational scholars change their ways to more effectively stimulate organisational and societal reflexivity on these pressing themes?

Re-imagining, rethinking and reshaping organisational research at the 30th annual EGOS conference, hosted at RSM recentlyFive plenary sessions – some hosting as many as 500 participants – explored innovation in institutions; the dynamics of  routine – which will be the subject of a new EGOS working group from next year; multimodality research in organisation studies; process methods and perspectives, and re-imagining history in unsettled times.

EGOS is a scholarly association, with 2,100 members in 53 countries, which aims to further the theoretical and empirical advancement of knowledge about organisations, organising and the contexts in which organisations operate. Its conference addressed several issues, including those surrounding generating profits and contributing to human development without jeopardising the well-being of other societies or future generations.

RSM students contributed to a detailed report of the Colloquium’s sub-plenary sessions. There’s also an overview of the conference, prepared by the organisers here.
