Strategic Management Society (SMS) Special Conference - Milan 2017
The SMS Special Conference on the theme " Strategic Human Capital, Management Practices and Performance" will be held in Milano, at Bocconi University on 31 March - 1 April 2017.
The focus of the conference is strategic human capital in the context of management practices and organizational design. A key theme in strategic management research is explaining performance outcomes in terms of resource characteristics. However, in spite of many advances in our understanding of how resources and capabilities contribute to firm performance, our current understanding of the resources-performance links contains many gaps. Thus, our understanding of the contribution of human capital and internal practices (e.g., HR practices) and design to performance remains quite incomplete.
The Conference is gathering scholars in strategy, human resource management, economics and so on to address the key issues in the intersection of strategic human capital, management practices, and firm performance.There will be tracks on Strategic Human Capital and Human Resource Management, Management Practices and Organizational Design, Research Methodology, and Entrepreneurship and Top-Management Teams, and feature panels and keynote talks to examine strategic human capital, practices and performance.
The Milano special conference will offer you a unique opportunity to engage with other scholars and practitioners during what will be an exciting set of sessions on highly topical issues in research.
More information on the Conference is available on the website of the event.
