2nd Conference on Individual Constructs in Management and Organizational Research
The 2nd IC-MORe is hosted by the Department of Marketing at the University of Leipzig in cooperation with the TU Chemnitz and elements and constructs GmbH.
The conference will be held right in the city center and focus on different areas of Personal Construct Theory and Repertory Grids in Business Contexts.
The annual forum for discussion and debate has fostered a sense of community around the idea of Repertory Grids in Business Contexts. This year's conference, from November 14th-15th, 2008, will attract academics, researchers and practitioners from all over the world.
Participants are invited to present research and best-practice papers and posters on the theme of "Ongoing Business: New Developments, new Studies, and new Tools".
In the tradition of the conference series, first established by Matthias Rosenberger at Chemnitz University of Technology (PCPBC 2006), there are three parallel tracks to support a wide area of presentations and
discussions: Organizational Development Forum: A Platform exclusively Focused on Opportunities of PCP and Repertory Grid in the Context of Today’s Business Requirements for Organizations. Human Resource Development Forum:
PCP and Repertory Grid in the Context of Personnel Development. Marketing Forum: Theoretical and Practical Challenges to PCP and Repertory Grid in Marketing and Market Research. In addition there is a gala dinner and a conference website is provided for dissemination and promotions of the work of colloquium members.
