Jari Kaivo-oja, University of Turku

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?
