Alba Graduate Business School, The American College of Greece and SEV (Hellenic Federation of Enterprises) have the honor to invite you to the fourth event of The Lead Creatively: Discussion Series which will take place on Thursday, May 23 at 18:00 at Alba's amphitheater. The event is organized by the SEV Center of Excellence in Creative Leadership.
The interactive speech entitled "Prudence and Creativity: An Odd Pair?" will be held by Dr Haridimos Tsoukas, The Columbia Ship Management Professor of Strategic Management, Department of Business and Public Administration, University of Cyprus & Distinguished Research Environment Professor of Organization Behavior, Warwick Business School, University of Warwick, UK.
An (unhappy) engineer by discipline, Prof. Tsoukas migrated to the social sciences, and found his intellectual home in organization and management studies. He is not a philosopher but can’t help but see everything from a philosophical point of view. He is not a complexity scientist but can’t help but approach everything in terms of, Gregory Bateson’s memorable phrase, “the pattern that connects”. And he is not a politician but, as an engaged citizen, can’t help but be passionate about the affairs of the «polis».
Author and editor of several books in English and Greek, his research publications have appeared in the most distinguished international journals of organizational and management research. He is best known for his contributions to understanding organizations as knowledge and learning systems, for re-viewing organizational phenomena through the lens of process philosophy, for exploring practical reason in organizational contexts as well as the epistemology of reflective practice in management, and for bringing insights from Aristotelian, Wittgensteinian and Heideggerian philosophy to organization and management studies.
He was Editor-in-Chief of the leading journal Organization Studies and is the co-founder and co-organizer of the International Symposium of Process Organization Studies. Striving to be an active citizen, he regularly comments on Greek and Cypriot politics in national media, as well as on his Greek blog Enarthri Kravgi (Articulate Howl). In recognition of his “considerable, original and sustained contribution to his field at the highest international level”, Professor Tsoukas was awarded the Doctor of Science (D.Sc.) degree by the University of Warwick in July 2014.
It will be a great honor for us if you would be able to attend.
