71st Annual Meeting of the Academy of Management "West Meets East: Enlightening, Balancing, and Transcending"
The Academy of Management holds its 2011 conference against a backdrop of daunting challenges. The world economic crisis has destroyed vast amounts of wealth and millions of jobs. Business enterprises, governments, and public institutions around the globe have been forced to undertake major restructuring and transformation efforts. The theme of “West Meets East” has special meaning for the Academy of Management. Our membership has swelled by more than 60 percent over the past 10 years, with almost 40 percent of our 19,000 members now spread across some 100 different countries outside North America. The Academy recently completed a two-year strategic planning exercise that identified nearly 20 major initiatives for the coming years, almost half of which relate to internationalization. The call for a second conference outside of the United States was just announced. Like most large, multinational organizations, however, the Academy finds itself facing its own set of global challenges. How might the demographic shifts within the Academy reshape the management profession and redirect its scholarly pursuits? What questions will this global explosion raise about differences in research and teaching missions? What does professional development mean in this new reality, and what role will the Academy play? At this juncture, will we be bystanders or constructive contributors to the debate on critical business issues of global significance?
