About the event

Featuring a stellar set of presenters and discussants, this AoM Symposium aims to showcase and discuss theory about how macroenvironmental changes create positive potentials that organizational agents can leverage—or fail to leverage. Our vantage point is that such theory is important and timely yet insufficiently represented in our current library of management theories. To underscore our point of a current theoretical void, we focus in particular on how societal crises – that is, events that are by definition negative for the majority – create positive potentials for an important minority of business activities.

The event is on-site only (no online participation)
