Prof. Paula Jarzabkwoski (City University of London) is co-convening the 12th International Symposium on Process Organization Studies, that will take place on 1-4 September 2021, at the Sheraton Rhodes Resort, in the island of Rhodes, Greece.
The Symposium theme is "Organizing beyond organizations for the common good: Confronting major societal challenges through process studies"
Addressing the most important challenges that humanity faces, such as climate change, pandemics and poverty, involves organizational actors becoming adept at organizing across interorganizational systems that are beset by multiple tensions (Jarzabkowski et al, 2019; Sheep, Fairhurst & Khazanchi, 2017) and often far from equilibrium (Cunha & Putnam, 2019; Fairhurst & Bangart, 2016; Williams, Whiteman & Parker, 2019).
Without being exclusive, the symposium also welcome papers that examine the processes through which actors engaged in organizing beyond organizations negotiate the multiple paradoxes involved in maintaining a balance between equilibrium and disequilibrium.
