Letter of the President

24 February 2022

Dear Colleague,

Dear EURAM Member,

Today, as Russia attacked the Ukraine, we are confronted with the unthinkable and seemingly impossible: war in Europe. Let us take time to pause and stand shoulder to shoulder in solidarity with our colleagues in the Ukraine and neighboring regions.

Let us also remember that academia always is in charge and has the chance to connect, to support and to create knowledge for strengthening togetherness, advancing societies and contributing to conversations that overcome conflict and aggression. In this sense, we also have to continue to connect and shape the future we wish to see.

As EURAM community we will take decisive steps to meet again in person and intensify our collaboration and interaction online and on-site. The weakening pandemic situation in Europe will allow us to do so. Our EURAM Early Career Community is a clear driver of meeting in person: In 2020, the EURAM Early Career Consortium held at Huddersfield University was one of the last academic events to be held face-to-face prior to the time of lockdowns following the outbreak of the pandemic. The following, two editions were offered online and kept us connected.

Now, in 2022, our EURAM Early Career Community will be the door opener. The first group of early career scholars will get together face-to-face from 2-4 March 2022 at the Johannes Kepler University (JKU) in Linz, Austria, for the 13th edition of the EECC. Pierre Dussauge, Vice President EECC, together with Almina Bešić, the local organizer, will be welcoming 18 early career scholars and 12 keynote speakers, past presidents, or former EECC participants who now act as mentors to sharpen “Resilience in building a research career”.

Our next in person event will be the EURAM Conference 2022. It will take place at ZHAW from 15-17 June in Winterthur (Switzerland) preceded by the EURAM Doctoral Colloquium from 13-14 June.

For the EURAM Doctoral Colloquium, we received 105 applications from PhD students. As for the conference, submissions are currently under review and we hope many of the authors will make their way to Switzerland. Stay tuned, we will tell you more about the programme and the keynote panels in the next few weeks! Reto Steiner, Conference Chair, is planning an inspiring week and fun events as well!

During the COVID-19 pandemic, PhD students were perhaps the most vulnerable of us all. Therefore, we have mobilized all our efforts to propose a more comprehensive path for them starting in 2022. The EURAM Doctoral Accelerator will be launched in March and will feature a EURAM Summer School and a EURAM Summer School programme for 2023. Mine Karatas-Ozkan, Vice President Talent Development gives us a foretaste of what to expect in this section of the newsletter.

The European Management Review (EMR) has been glowing and growing during the pandemic under the fantastic leadership of Michael Morley, University of Limerick. Thank you for your time, energy and wise actions. From now on, EMR will be led by a team of two fantastic Editors in Chief:  Anna Grandori, Bocconi University just joined the journal in February 2022 and Michael Morley, who will continue to drive the journals future. The latter gives us detail on the development of the journal during 2021 in this section of the newsletter. Also, a special issue on Re-imagining the Workplace of the Future is in the making and they are looking forward to receiving your submissions.

There is always room to get more involved in our community and I invite you to contact me if you would like to be part of the new EURAM Doctoral Accelerator initiative as a mentor or during our EURAM Doctoral Colloquium!

Beyond all this, I invite suggestions how we as EURAM community can truly support our colleagues in the Ukraine. Feel free to email me directly with suggestions or academic initiatives that you would like to lead. Let’s stay together.

All the best to all of you,

Kathrin M. Moeslein, President

EURAM Doctoral Accelerator

We are thrilled to announce the launch of our EURAM Doctoral Accelerator, which brings together all of our doctoral education, training and support activities under one roof! Our Doctoral Accelerator invests in talented doctoral students as the next generation of knowledge producers, academics and researchers, practitioners in industry or policy makers ‑ whichever their chosen career paths will be. Through a mentor-driven support and online and on-site activities throughout the year, doctoral students will find huge amount of connectivity and encouragement in the EURAM Doctoral Accelerator community. They will enjoy an amazing network of peers and mentors who will not only motivate and energise them in ups and downs of the doctoral journey but also provide their scholarly input and connections. Currently, our key activities under the Accelerator comprise our flagship programme, namely the EURAM Doctoral Colloquium (DC), and a brand-new scheme – the EURAM Doctoral Buddy Scheme, which is an online buddying and mentoring support programme offered throughout the year, which will be led by our colleague, Dr Joanna Szulc. Following our onsite EURAM Doctoral Colloquium in June 2022 and drawing on from feedback of our participant doctoral students, we are also planning webinars on selected topics all year round. Even more excitingly, we are planning a EURAM Summer School programme for 2023, particularly for those doctoral candidates, who are in their final phases of doctoral studies and need tailored support in transitioning to their next career step. Watch this space! Join us as participants and mentors. Let’s grow our community together!

European Management Review 2021

The year 2021 was a positive one for European Management Review on several fronts.

Firstly, original submissions increased significantly. In 2021 the journal received 421 new original submissions, up from 372 in 2020, in addition to handling a significant number of manuscripts that had earlier been given a revise and resubmit decision and were subsequently re-submitted for further review and consideration.

This upward trend in submissions required a significant engagement with our reviewer community who are central to our success. While reviewer recruitment was, and remains challenging, we are pleased to report that a total of 653 reviews were completed and submitted by our dedicated reviewers in 2021, up from 390 in 2020. Reviewers from the US, UK, France, Italy, Spain, Germany, Turkey, Australia, and Ireland were among the most active in 2021.

The readership of European Management Review also continues to expand. The year 2021 saw downloads rise to a total of 152,970, up from 107,890 in 2020. The rise in downloads is particularly strong in the UK, the US, the Netherlands, Australia, Germany and India. The citation trend is also on an upward trajectory. The year 2021 saw a rise of approximately 30 percent on 2020.

Finally, by way of content, European Management Review published 4 issues in 2021, comprising 48 items in total, of which 20 were hybrid open access. This compares with a total of 58 in 2020, of which 16 were hybrid open access. Of the 48 items published in Volume 18 in 2021, three were Editorials, 4 were in our Methodology Matters Section and 37 were regular articles. In addition, we published one Guest Edited Special Section on Managing People and Organisations in the Creative Industries comprising an Introduction prepared by the Guest Editors, along with three articles addressing key themes covered by the call for papers.

Submissions are open for the new Special Issue guest-edited by Prof. Francesco Gangi, Prof. Eugenio D’Angelo and Dr Lucia Michela Daniele, entitled: “Close the Gap: Corporate Environmental Responsibility and the New Challenges for Companies in the Green Transition Era”

This Special Issue invites contributions investigating the drivers and effects of Corporate Environmental Responsibility (CER) within businesses. The global pandemic has renewed the relevance of Corporate Social Responsibility as a leading driver for the achievement of sustainable economies. Concurrently, environmental emergencies have attracted the attention of policymakers and academics. The extreme, negative environmental events that have recently occurred in several parts of the world are clearly signaling that the environmental issue has quickly transformed into a source of systemic risk (UN & PWC, 2021). According to the UN 2021 report, the pandemic and climate crises represent a significant threat to achieving the SDGs by 2030.

Seven Essentials for Business Success: Lessons from Legendary Professors (Routledge 2022)

George Siedel’s book enables teachers to understand and use the best practices developed by award-winning professors who teach the seven areas that are essential for business success: accounting, business law, finance, management, marketing, operations, and strategy.

These professors candidly discuss their successes and failures in the classroom, the mentors who inspired them, how they developed their teaching methods, and their rigorous preparation for class. Through descriptions of the professors in action, readers will gain an insider’s perspective on their teaching skills, and witness how they teach the seven essentials for success in a variety of settings―undergraduate, MBA, Executive MBA, and executive education courses. The chapters also describe the daily lives (professional and personal) of the professors, and the impact they have beyond the classroom in improving organizations and society.

The concluding chapter presents six themes that summarize the teaching process used by the seven legendary professors.  The chapter also includes many examples of the authenticity that characterizes their integrity and identity.

“Managing Cultural Festivals. Tradition and Innovation in Europe”

Book by Routledge Research in the Creative and Cultural Industries series


Elisa SALVADOR, Professor (PhD, HDR) of Innovation and Creativity at ESSCA School of Management, France,

Jesper STRANDGAARD PEDERSEN, Professor of Organization Studies at Copenhagen Business School, Denmark.

Book description:

“This book aims at renewing the attention on a niche field, Cultural Festivals, so important for valorizing cultural traditions and local heritage visibility as well as social well-being. Following the disruptive consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic, this fragile sector deserves more attention from public authorities and stakeholders at national and European levels with a suitable and dedicated plan of recovery and valorization.

This book provides a comparative analysis of Cultural Festivals in Europe, taking insights from an international range of high-level scholarly contributors. Individual chapters highlight and analyse challenges around the organisation, management and economics of Cultural Festivals. As a whole, the book provides a comprehensive overview of scholarly research in this area, setting the scene for the future research agenda. Matters related to educational programs and new audience development, as well as challenges related to digitalization, are also included.

Book Chapter

The COVID-19 pandemic and its related economic meltdown and social unrest severely challenged most countries, their societies, economies, organizations, and individual citizens. Focusing on both more and less successful country-specific initiatives to fight the pandemic and its multitude of related consequences, this article explores implications for leadership and effective action at the individual, organizational and societal levels. As international management scholars and consultants, the 18 contributors document actions taken and their wide-ranging consequences in a diverse set of 19 countries, including countries that have been more and less successful in fighting the pandemic, are geographically larger and smaller, are located in each region of the world, are economically advanced and economically-developing, and that chose unique strategies versus strategies more similar to those of their neighbors.

Journal:  Competitiveness Review: An International Business Journal

Editor: Emerald Publishing Limited

Paper Description:

A model with three second-order constructs is developed and tested, in a sample of 325 managers from manufacturing companies in Ecuador. After obtaining adjusted and validated measurement models, a structural equation model was conducted, where the main hypotheses were confirmed, providing empirical evidence that CSR and green innovation significantly influence manufacturing competitiveness in a developing economy.

This study considers only manufacturing companies in Ecuador, focusing on CSR practices in a single territorial case study. It arguably contributes to reinforce the business case for CSR, with new evidence on the causal relationships between CSR, green innovation and competitiveness, in the context of emerging market manufacturing industries. Although the literature often points at a positive relationship between CSR and firm-level competitiveness, supporting empirical evidence remains scarce. This model, introducing green innovation as mediator in the relationship between CSR and competitiveness in developing markets, accounts for a novel theoretical approach.

Practical implications – The findings are consistent with previous research, reporting the positive influence of CSR activities on organizational competitiveness, reducing risks and cost structures, as well as improving the relationship with employees, enhancing talent attraction, retention and productivity. Incorporating formal CSR tools to the model allowed us to highlight the relevance of ‘green’ certifications as a means to provide a competitive edge, along with increased bargaining power in the supply chain, resulting in competitiveness gains. The findings on the role of green innovation suggest a transition from cost-savings to a more strategic leverage on responsible innovation as a source of competitive advantage.

they work? Evidence from Business Schools and Economics’ academics in the UK

James Walker, Chris Brewster, Rita Fontinha, Washika Haak-Saheem & Fabio Lamberti

While COVID-19 has posed an unprecedented challenge to the international scientific community the UK academic community has also been impacted by potential opportunities and challenges associated with Britain’s exit from the European Union. Building upon an earlier survey evidence examining the impact of COVID-19 during the months following the first complete lockdown in the UK in March 2020 and a survey run prior to the identification of Omicron in November 2021 provides an opportunity to obtain up-to-date evidence on examined five critical issues facing the universities in the UK.

The work has important implications for the finding can inform university’s research (including internationalisation and dissemination), teaching and learning, and Working from Home policies on these hot button issues. The work should be of interest to university managers and policy makers from these domains and academic staff. Those interested in how these topics are impacting upon Higher Education.

Andrej SRAKAR, Institute for Economic Research (IER) and School of Economics and Business, University of Ljubljana.

Book description:

“Already dealing with disruptive market forces, the Cultural and Creative Industries (CCIs) faced fundamental challenges resulting from the global health crisis, wrought by the COVID-19 pandemic. With catastrophic changes to cultural consumption, cultural organizations are dealing with short-, medium-, and long-term threats to livelihoods under lockdown.

This book aims at filling the literature gap about the consequences of one of the hardest crises – COVID-19 – severely impacting all the fields of the CCIs. With a focus on European countries and taking into account the evolving and unstable context caused by the pandemic still in progress, this book investigates the first reactions and actual strategies of CCIs’ actors, government bodies, and cultural institutions facing the COVID-19 crisis and the potential consequences of these emergency strategies for the future of the CCIs. Solutions adopted during the repeated lockdowns by CCIs’ actors could originate new forms of cultural consumption and/or new innovative market strategies. This book brings together a constellation of contributors to analyze the cultural sector as it seeks to emerge from this existential challenge”.

Special Issue on International Journal of Organizational Analysis entitled:

“Beyond Rationality in Organizations’ Choices: Exploring the Dark and the Bright Sides of Non-rational Decision-making”

Decision-making process of organizational agents is central in influencing processes and performance of organizations. In this vein, since the emergence of the disrupting concept of bounded rationality (Simon, 1947), scholarly interest moved towards understanding the deviations of the human mind from logical and rational choice paths (Cristofaro, 2017). This resulted in an enlarging of the spectrum of factors shaping decision making, leading future scholarship to unpack the ‘non-rational decision making’, i.e., influenced by conscious or unconscious forces that get cognition astray from being logically consistent (e.g., Ariely, 2008; Guo, 2009). However, despite the significant interest in better understanding the non-rational forces driving the decision-making processes of organizational agents, important areas still remain largely unexplored. As such, this Special Issue focuses on the investigation of the non-rational forces shaping decision making processes, such as dark personality traits (Spain et al., 2014), mental disorders (Wiklund et al., 2020), beliefs (Jackson and Artola, 1997), spirituality/religion (Loe et al., 2000; Fernando and Jackson, 2006; Phipps et al., 2012), superstition (Tsang, 2004ab; Hirshleifer et al., 2018), meaningful coincidences (Cristofaro, 2021), atmospheres (Julmi, 2017) – apart from the ones that received more interest, such as intuition (Dane and Pratt, 2007; Julmi, 2019; Loia and Adinolfi, 2021) and affective states (Bachkirov, 2015; Fodor et al., 2016; Cristofaro, 2019; 2020).

Although workplace bullying is exceedingly common around the world and can cause serious physical and psychological harm, there is little research about college students’ knowledge about (and experiences of) workplace bullying. During the summer of 2020, our research team from the United States with collaborators based at Simmons University, the University of Central Florida, and the University of Scranton developed the Workplace Health Insights from Students (WHIS) survey for college students, part of which was adapted from the Negative Acts Questionnaire (NAQ) created by the Bergen Bullying Research Group based at the University of Bergen, Norway. We initially performed user testing of the survey by administering it to five college students at Simmons University and gathering feedback through interviews. We presented our preliminary findings at the EURAM 2021 Annual Conference. In the fall of 2021, we distributed the revised WHIS survey to all Simmons University undergraduate and graduate students. We are currently analyzing the data and are working towards a publication. It is our goal to further develop, validate, and administer this survey worldwide to determine how college students experience healthy workplace environments and also so that we can help teach students how to identify and better protect themselves against workplace bullying.
