2014 Conference on Commitment


November 14-16, 2014

The Blackwell Inn

Fisher College of Business

The Ohio State University

Columbus, Ohio (USA)

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 "Commitment in Organizational Contexts." 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
