|Description:||27th Annual BAM Conference BAM 2013 - British Academy of Management|
|Location:||Liverpool, Aintree Racecourse Liverpool, United Kingdom|
|Subject:||BAM2013 Conference Theme: The management of private and public institutions affect almost every aspect of our lives. However, narrowly defined conceptions of management place a premium on the rational pursuit of measurable, financial returns with limited amounts of regulation. Consequently, the dysfunctional effects of mainstream management are ignored and innovative forms of economic activity undertaken in pursuit of broader social goals are neglected. Private sector scandals in banking and the media as well as high-profile public sector failings in social services and hospitals have highlighted limitations associated with current management practices. Members of the Academy will be aware of the problems associated with a narrow focus on rational managerial solutions whether applied to research, teaching or engagement with business and other stakeholders. Therefore, based on the theme of Ś‘managing to make a differenceŚ’ the BAM community are invited to consider the wider implications of management. The BAM 2013 conference with a range of sub-themes and a strong multi-disciplinary spirit provides an excellent opportunity to consider various facets of management beyond Ś‘manageableŚ’ means-ends explanations.
