HEC Paris organizes an SMS Extension Workshop on Sept. 21st, 2018

By Bertrand Quelin

We would like to invite you to join a workshop entitled "Hybrid Organizing, Innovation and Social Value Creation: New Perspectives for Strategy" that we are convening as an extension of the forthcoming SMS 38th Annual Conference.

This one-day workshop will be held in downtown Paris, close to the venue of the SMS Annual Conference, on Friday, September 21st, 2018.

The goal of this SMS Extension is to foster discussion among a broad group of academics about what researchers can bring to society through the study of hybrid organizing, social enterprises, innovation and value creation. Sessions will be highly interactive. In our day together, there will be no formal paper presentations. Instead, panelists and workshop participants will be working together to identify critical issues - compelling research questions, challenges and methodologies – to push the research frontier.
