The Public and Non-Profit Management SIG aims at providing an authoritative and internationally focused forum to discuss major developments in the area of governance and management of public interest. Such focus allows embracing all organisations that operate for the benefit of the community, be they public or private. Key issues include network management, performance management, organisation and HRM, social innovation, social responsibility, accounting and accountability, marketing and fundraising, leadership. We especially welcome topic proposals focusing on collaborative governance (networks and co- production), social innovation, management of hybrid organisations and the creation of public value at the intersection between public and private domains. We encourage envisioning topics and symposia proposals that could be managed in partnership with another SIG.
GT11_00 Public and Non-Profit Management General Track
The track chairs welcome papers dealing with the multiplicity of governance arrangements promoting the public interest. These have endured a shift from the traditional Weberian public administration to forms emulating business models to public governance hybrid solutions based on collaboration and co-production. The public sector has become more fragmented and multifaceted, while the shift in expectations by citizens make them now keener to engage in policy-making and service delivery. The Public and Non-Profit Management general track aims at gathering and promoting confrontation between engaged scholars investigating the role of public and no-profit management for the pursuit of public interest aims.

ST11_03 – Management and governance of culture, heritage and tourism
Management and governance of culture, heritage and tourism have gained increasing relevance over the last decades. Managing culture, heritage and tourism is a particularly complex task, cutting across institutional levels, management styles, and organizational cultures – all the more with the recent technological and institutional transformations (e.g. from hierarchical to network governance, AI, internet-of-things, and big data). What has changed in these realm, if at all, in the last years? How can we, as management scholars, learn from this setting; and how could we contribute to a thriving artistic, cultural and tourism management in our cities, regions and nations?
