Seven researchers from Nord university in Norway will now follow the Ski Tour 2020 project in February and evaluate how risk management and stakeholder management works in a project where most of the project team is either voluntary workers or top performers (skiing athletes).
[SIG 06 – INNO – Innovation] Professor Abderrahman Hassi (Al Akhawayn University, Morocco) is currently investigating mechanisms and circumstances under which empowering leaders spur their subordinates’ innovative work behaviors. In fact, existing literature has mainly looked into the ways leaders encourage the generation of ideas, while the determinant factors pertaining to the implementation of creative ideas is still under-researched. Some of these factors include climate for initiative, climate for creativity and climate for innovation. For instance, he demonstrated that the climate for creativity dimensions of employee creativity recognition, flexibility to change and adequate resources for innovation pave the way for empowering leaders in the adoption of new management practices, processes or structures.
[SIG 06 – INNO – Innovation] On October 7, 2019, Professor Elisa SALVADOR (ESSCA School of Management, France) successfully defended her habilitation thesis and she has been conferred the Higher doctorate, also known as accreditation to supervise research (HDR), in economics sciences and management, from Paris13 University.

[SIG 01 – B4S – Business for Society] Green Stories Writing Competitions and Workshops. Research from Professor Baden shows that solution based stories, or stories that smuggle in green ideas/characters in the context of an otherwise mainstream story are more likely to inspire greener behaviours than catastrophic tales of climate change. So as a way to raise awareness, we ask writers to check out potentially transformative solutions on the website http://www.greenstories.org.uk/ and integrate them into their story. Upcoming free writing competitions are for Interactive fiction, flash fiction, novels, screenplays and Quick bites (8 min episodes). All are free to enter with prizes (including student categories) and potential routes to production/publication set up. There is a writer’s workshop on 1st/2nd February 2020 at the University of Southampton, UK to generate ideas – see https://store.southampton.ac.uk/conferences-and-events/southampton-business-school/events/green-stories-writing-workshop
