2017 Directors Report

OLKC 2019

Description
 

We are delighted to announce the 13th International Conference on Organisational Learning, Knowledge and Capabilities (OLKC) Call for Papers. OLKC 2019 is hosted by the University of Sussex Business School in Brighton, UK.

The conference will comprise of general track submissions, three specialist thematic tracks, a doctoral symposium and a developmental workshop. Featuring Jacky Swan (WBS), Marleen Huysman (VU Amsterdam), Michael Barrett (Cambridge) and Anthony Giddens (LSE), as well as the Talking About Organizations Podcast, OLKC 2019 is redesigned in such a way as to foster as much conversation between delegates as possible.

Current debate about the workplace in the digital economy is generally hampered by considerable hyperbole and speculation. As the recent ESRC scoping exercise on ‘Ways of being in a digital age’ (Yates et al. 2017: 14) notes, current knowledge is ‘predominantly reflective and review based as opposed to being based on empirical data collection’. For OLKC 2019 we ask the question as to what the role of interpersonal relations is going to be in increasingly digitised workplaces? Will improved and increased automation, surveillance, communication and coordination capabilities usher in greater liberation and break down of organisational boundaries, giving way to open sharing and innovation; or are we heading towards an antagonistic future with Luddite values, where human employees compete with automated systems, resist management and restrict knowledge sharing?

Who Should Attend

OLKC 2019 aims to bring together diverse scholars with interests in these (and adjacent) topics in order to develop in-depth and interdisciplinary understanding of the trajectories brought about by ongoing exposure of the contemporary workplace to the technologies, methods and philosophies of the digital economy. We welcome a diverse range (e.g., conceptual, empirical, and methodological) of submissions that extend and enhance our knowledge of the aforementioned issues.
