THEME OF THE RESEARCH WORKSHOP: MISSIONS, STRATEGY & CULTURE
Mission statements have become common practice in companies and institutions. Missions are present at corporate level (corporate mission), brand identity (brand mission), intra-organizational groups (departmental/team mission) and individuals (personal/role mission).This growing presence of missions in organizations is the foundation of an evolutionary logic of management, moving beyond the management by objectives to a new form of “management by missions”. Management by missions studies how companies organize and manage the missions at different levels of the company (from corporate to individual) and how they integrate missions with other management practices (strategy, culture, objectives, leadership, communication, training,…).
Specifically, the 3th Research Workshop addresses to key topics leading towards this new paradigm of management. In this edition, we suggest the following topics:
• Missions and strategy
• Missions and culture
• Missions across cultures
• Missions and motivation
• Missions and leadership
• Missions and sustainability
• Missions as a source of meaning
• Missions in social enterprise
• Personal mission
• Personal-Organizational mission integration
