New work practices, new lifestyle
Digital nomads, makers, coworkers, slashers (etc.) not only invent new ways of working they also design new lifestyles. Hypermobility, remote working, workation, projectification of work and life (etc.) are only some aspects of these lifestyle changes. Based on these current evolutions at work, we have launched in 2017 a thematic group at AIMS (Association Internationale de Management Stratégique) dedicated to the study of the co-evolution of these work practices and lifestyle.
This group thematic is co-organized by Chahrazad Abdallah (HEC UQAM), Emilie Lanciano (Université St Etienne, Philippe Lorino (ESSEC), Jonathan Sambugaro (université St Etienne) and I. Note that this thematic group is in both French and English language.
This is the list of the subtheme tracks and workshop organized :
2017: From new work practices to new forms of solidarity (nouvelles pratiques de travail aux nouvelles formes de solidarité), Lyon
2018: New governance at the age of autonomous and decentralized organization (organisations autonomes et décentralisées et nouvelles formes de gouvernance), Montpellier.
2019: Transformation of work and lifestyle: autonomy and heteronomy (Transformations du travail et des modes de vie : autonomies et hétéronomies), Saint Etienne.
2020: Contemporary ways of working, organization, and evolution of lifestyle (pratiques contemporaines de travail, organisation et évolution des modes de vie).
Doing Process Research
With “Doing Process Research”, we have created in 2017 a Standing Working Group dedicated to the empirical and methodological stakes of process studies at EGOS (European Group of Organization Studies).
Process studies is an alternative and very fruitful perspective to study organizing, specially the studies of topics such as the emergence of new work and collaboration practices and organizational phenomena among others. As this perspective has much to offer to researchers and practitioners, the aim is to promote and foster empirical studies that reflect the underpinning assumptions of process philosophy, and clarifying the methodological implications of empirical process research.
This Standing Working Group is coordinated by Barbara Simpson, Professor of Leadership and Organizational Dynamics in the Department of Strategy & Organisation at Strathclyde Business School in Glasgow; Viviane Sergy, Professor in Management, Université du Québec in Montréal (UQAM) and I.
This is the list of the subthemes tracks organized at the EGOS conference:
