In recent years, big data and digital technologies have impacted the modern workplace and stimulated the evolution of new forms of management. The phenomenon is multifaceted and changes the way organisations compete and innovate.

It threatens long-lasting business models, and opens up new ways of creating and capturing value. This conference is an opportunity to meet those who are advancing this rapidly evolving field and jump-start your own exploration of how big data and digital technologies are changing the way you and your company work.

From research to best practices, this conference features a comprehensive programme of presentations, active learning workshops, and panel discussions.

Our award-winning researcher, author and educator Professor Annabelle Gawer is an expert on digital platforms and platform based innovative business and she is thrilled that the conference is being held at the University this year. Annabelle said: “The Academy of Management is the leading global professional association of management professors and academics, with 20,000 members worldwide. The Big Data/Digital Economy theme is an exciting relevant one for a number of us, cutting across academic disciplines, and we hope that the call for submissions will stimulate a number of exciting proposals. We expect over 400 participants from all over the world to come to Surrey on this occasion.”
