25th Annual Conference of the British Academy of Management

Building and Sustaining High Performance Organisations in a Challenging Environment 13-15 September 2011, Aston University, Birmingham

With world class conference facilities, a vast choice of hotel accommodation, vibrant nightlife and a fabulous choice of shopping in the pedestrian friendly city centre, Birmingham is the perfect location for the 25th British Academy of Management conference. As public sector cuts begin to bite into many economies and private sector organizations seek to climb out of the recession, managers at all levels and in many countries face enormously challenging environments. How can we develop organizational cultures that value innovation, engagement and courage in challenging environments? How can high performance be achieved in the context of values being at the core of business practice? And what does high performance mean in a post recession environment and for employee well?being? The 25th British Academy of Management conference offers access to research carried out by those who seek to offer answers to these and many other critical management questions. At Aston you will find a warm welcome, an eagerness to listen and learn from alternative views, and a determination to make a positive difference to our world through enlightened approaches to management and leadership.
