Africa Conference Proceedings
The AOM Africa Conference Proceedings are available online.
The purpose of this conference was to bring Africa’s unique capabilities and needs to the attention of the world’s organization and management scholars and at the same time, to provide an opportunity for interested colleagues to collaborate and work on the many interesting theoretical and practice problems presented in Africa.
If it can be said that the average conference is all about collaborators sharing the answers to their research questions, this conference was oriented more toward discovering questions worth asking and then building the collaborative relationships to answer them. Much of the conference time was spent together, exploring and experiencing many of these capabilities and challenges first hand. Each participant spent one and a half days “in the field” directly experiencing South Africa and the phenomena that interest them.
