This Special Issue welcomes manuscripts that address the subsequent, non-exclusive list of questions:

  • (How) Can recent or possible future developments in organisational design inform the organisational design of management theories?
  • Who, or what, will be the next management gurus? Will brands, avatars, bots, or algorithms be the future of management theory?
  • Theories as programmes? What programmes and programming languages will shape the futures of management theory?
  • What are the prospects and where are the places of traditional, “old-European” concepts such as action, values, or causality in the management theories of the future?
  • What observational options and types of variables are systematically underexposed in management theory?
  • What methods or tools are useful to test for the adequacy of, often only implicit, social theoretical foundations of management theories, which include social macro trend assumptions, images of society, and the corresponding grand theories? 

Deadline: September 15, 2018.
