Recently I had been elected to the leadership track of the Strategizing Activities and Practices (SAP) Interest Group in the Academy of Managment (AoM). This means that I will be responsible for co-organizing the interest group’s program at the Annual Meeting of the Academy of Management for the next five years, starting in 2020. So at this year’s Academy of Management Annual Meeting in Boston I was not only taking part in the academic program but also had several meetings preparing me for my duties in this regard. In 2020, my main responsibility will be to organize the various Professional Development Workshops (PDWs) of the Interest Group. In case you have ideas or proposals regarding this part of the meeting’s program, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Below is a list of my scholarly contributions at this year’s AoM Annual Meeting:
- “From Programmatic to Constitutive Perspectives: Two Approaches to Studying Openness in Strategy and Beyond” in a Professional Development Workshop on “Open Strategy: Practices and Perspectives” (see slides below; slides of all contributors are available at the Open Strategy Network).
- In a discussion paper session entitled “Inclusiveness, Care and Dignity” I presented the paper “Potentially Performative Programs: Comparing Concepts of Inclusive and Open Organizing“, which I co-authored with my sister Laura (Radboud University) and Katharina Kreissl (University of Salzburg).

- On Monday, I was honored to be part of the SAP Showcase Symposium on “Inclusive Strategy: Opening Strategy to the Middle, Below and Beyond” with a short presentation on “Inclusive Strategizing: Dilemmas Beyond Organizational Boundaries” (see slides below; slides of all presenters in the symposium are available at the Open Strategy Network).
