Academy of Management Annual Meetings

  • Anaheim Convention Center

Annual meetings for my largest professional organization. This year's focus: Making Organizations Meaningful.

"Organizations occupy a central role in the ways we live our lives, for better and for worse.  They enable   us to be more efficient, to access goods and services faster than ever before, and to share information and experiences across the globe. And yet, they are not unproblematic.  Recently, there have been highly publicized corporate scandals, Wall Street corruption, and failures of government to meet the needs of its citizens, with a resulting rise in public distrust and questioning of organizations’ reasons for being.  We often take as given that an organization’s purpose to produce economic value; and, although economic value can often add to social value, sometimes it does not.  This disjuncture raises the question of meaningfulness."

Workshop: Becoming a Plugged in Manager

  • Embassy Suites Santa Clara

Many of us are technology-, people-, or process-focused -- we don't naturally use all three of these critical organizational dimensions at the same time as we manage, participate in teams, or even just do our own work. "Plugged-in managers" are different. They never try to solve a problem with just a single silver bullet. They see choices across a situation’s dimensions of people, technology, and organizational processes/ resources, and then are able to "mix" them together into new -- and powerful -- organizational strategies, structures, and practices. 

In this workshop, we will develop your own plugged-in skills to let you lead with all your human, technical, and organizational resources. This isn’t about using technology all the time, but rather making productive choices for you, your team, and your organization.

Topics:

 Learn about the three key dimensions of plugged-in management

 Strategize using the three practices of a plugged-in manager

 Take what you already know about negotiation and/or communication and apply it to improve your work more broadly
