Call for papers
The 24th edition of the International Workshop on Teamworking (IWOT) will be hosted by the Institute for Management Research at Radboud University (The Netherlands). The conference will take place in Nijmegen on the 8th and the 9th of September 2022.
Theme of the conference
The main topic of the conference is “Bridging the gap between organization, team and job design”. Numerous studies have been published on how these designs affect a variety of different outcomes. Examples are studies relating organization, team and job design to performance (e.g. productivity, innovation or efficiency; Chen, 2021; Warnik et al., 2021) or employees’ physical health and well-being (e.g. burn-out risks and mental strain; Daniels, 2017; Parker et al., 2017). Often these studies target an audience in an established disciplinary field like business administration, organization science/behavior or work & organizational psychology. Each field has its own expertise and interests, but also its blind spots. For instance, scholars in business administration and organization science mainly conduct research on organization and team design, but often overlook the individual job holders with particular individual characteristics and backgrounds that perform tasks. Work & organizational psychologists on the other hand, focus on job design and individuals conducting a certain job. These studies, however, may overlook that jobs are embedded within a larger organizational or team context.
In this conference, we strive to build a bridge between these disciplines and take a step towards covering blind spots by complementing insights from the different disciplines. An increasing number of studies calls for research examining how organization and job design simultaneously influence outcomes for organizations and individuals. But until now, only few studies cross these disciplinary borders (Parker et al., 2017). We invite you to share and discuss insights on the challenges and opportunities of combining job, team, and organization design insights.
Although the topic for this year is about bridging the gap between organization, team and job design, we also welcome papers on related topics. The conference is inclusive and welcomes research on teams and teamworking without disciplinary or methodological restrictions. Papers will be presented in parallel sessions organized around similar topics.
