The Slovenian Academy of Management,
together with School of Economics and Business, University of Ljubljana, and
Faculty of Economics and Business, University of Zagreb, 
With the support of CEEMAN
is announcing that

 

6th International Conference on Management and Organization:

INTEGRATING ORGANIZATIONAL RESEARCH: INDIVIDUAL, TEAM, 

ORGANIZATIONAL, AND MULTILEVEL PERSPECTIVES

 

will be held in Slovenia on 23-24.6.2022 at School of Economics and Business, University of Ljubljana.

 

The conference was initially planed in 2020 but due to COVID-19 pandemic postponed to 2022. We are planning to have a live event with participation in-person, as we anticipate situation will improve substantially in the next few months. However, we will also provide an option of online participation due to some remaining uncertainty due to COVID-19 in Slovenia and Europe.

All extended abstracts that were already accepted in 2020 are accepted for 2022 conference as well. We also invite additional authors to participate with their latest research.

SINGLE- AND CROSS-LEVEL ORGANIZATIONAL RESEARCH: THEORY, METHOD AND PRACTICE

We are witnessing an ever-increasing amount of multilevel research in organizational studies that integrates delineated research domains and offers new lenses for understanding business practice. The purpose and scope of this conference is to identify, discuss, and grapple with single- and cross-level theory, research and method issues in order to make substantive progress in our understanding of the multilevel nature of organizations. 

We strive to provide much-needed synthesis of underlying theories and methodological approaches within the loosely coupled community of organizational scholars by taking account of the fact that micro phenomena are embedded in macro contexts, and macro phenomena often emerge through the interaction and dynamics of lower-level elements. Such an approach may add depth and richness to our theoretical reasoning and likewise improve conversations between researchers and practitioners by providing insightful details concerning how organizations operate and behave.
