  • A World Ethos for Global Business?

    The 5th Annual Humanistic Management Conference  A World Ethos for Global Business? Cosmopolitan Responsibilities of Management 05 - 06 October 2017 Weltethos-Institut, University of Tuebingen We have a world economy but no world government; nor can we expect, at least in the foreseeable future, a system of decentralized global governance with sufficient sanctioning powers to enforce legal mandates for business worldwide. For this reason alone, the ethical dimension of business cannot be entrusted solely to the law. Globalized markets would seem to require an underlying ‘ethos’, present to some degree the world over: a common spirit of legitimate, just, and fair business practice substantiated by shared experience. As managers and economic decision-makers, however, are increasingly operating within multi-cultural settings with divergent social customs and conventions, no ‘one size fits all’ approach will do. While on the one hand the growing need for transnational cooperation accentuates the call for a shared ‘world ethos’ for the global business community, on the other hand any proposal in that direction must make room for the need for the diversity and divergence of culture and civilization. At the fifth annual Humanistic Management Conference, to be held at the University of Tuebingen’s Weltethos-Institut, we aim to address this dual need by investigating from various cultural perspectives: 1) how a world ethos for global business  could be variously articulated and promoted (‘theory’); 2)  the extent to which such an ethos is already present in contemporary globalized business (‘practice’); and 3) what civil society around the world can do to support the efforts of  (esp. multinational) corporations in this direction (‚policy’).

If your area of research or practice touches the emerging field of social ventures that leverage unconventional types of leadership, governance, and ownership, we are cordially inviting you to join your fellow academics and practitioners for this online social lab experience.

Governance Lab is a virtual social lab experience for academics and practitioners interested in mapping and navigating the emerging field of social ventures that leverage unconventional types of leadership, governance, and ownership. The purpose of this lab is to identify important research questions and generate valuable insights for practitioners, as well as to ignite new scholar-practitioner collaborations.

The insights that emerge from this social lab experience will seed an in-person professional development workshop (PDW) in Vancouver on August 9th as part of the annual conference of the Academy of Management (AOM) - world's largest and most reputable association of management scholars.

Participants in the PDW will prototype actionable projects to advance scholar-practitioner collaboration and make tangible impact on both theory and practice in the related fields. It is expected that many people will participate in both the virtual Governance Lab and the PDW, although it is fine for people to only join one or the other.

At the shores of Lake Constance lies beautifully Lilienberg Unternehmerforum, a conferencing facility most suited for dialogue and reflection. Ethics First, the executive education joint venture of the Global Ethic Institute at the University of Tübingen and the Humanistic Management Center, is inviting to an afternoon event looking at the value of values for the SME sector in the region.

The region around Lake Constance and the bordering eastern part of Switzerland, western part of Austria and southern part of Germany have a long standing history of delivering entrepreneurial success stories. Simultaneously though these are challenging times for SMEs. They are on one hand hailed for being the backbone of our prosperity, but on the other hand face an ever more competitive environment, lower margins, difficulties in attracting and retaining the next generation of talented managers and market dynamics that reward short-termism over sustainable business practices.
