2017 Conference on Commitment

Understanding Context, Exploring Contingencies, and Seeking Consensus 

This conference brings together a community of scholars interested in the phenomenon of commitment to share and discuss ideas and findings relating to the conference theme of “Workplace Commitments: Understanding Context, Exploring Contingencies, and Seeking Consensus.” The purpose of this conference is to advance the literature by promoting leading-edge thinking on all aspects and forms of commitment in organizational contexts regardless of bases, mindsets or targets (e.g., commitment to organizations – employing or other, people, teams, occupation, goals, change efforts, decisions, values, etc.). The conference will be a mix of invited (30%) and competitively reviewed (70%) presentations. The small size of the conference promotes opportunities for informal interaction and dialogue among attendees to facilitate networking, collaboration, the sharing of ideas, and in-depth discussions.

Conference Organizer: Howard J. Klein, The Ohio State University
