In September, A Blueprint for Better Business is co hosting an academic conference with the London Business School Leadership Institute. The conference aims to focus on the (re)-discovery of purpose in management and to explore both the impact that the embrace of purpose may have on the firm and its performance, and whether and how purpose-led organisations can positively transform society at large.
A call for papers has been issued that welcomes both careful empirical studies and thoughtful and well-developed conceptual work that explores these topics. Empirical studies should be supported by rigorous qualitative or quantitative data analysis. Conceptual work should be clearly grounded in the existing literature and would ideally contribute to the generation of empirically testable propositions. Submitted papers need to have the potential to make a significant contribution both to the academic literature and to managerial practice in order to qualify for inclusion in the conference.
If have not already submitted your paper then please do so to firstname.lastname@example.org by May 15th, 2016. Authors of accepted papers will be notified by June 15th, 2016.
