CLIO aims to explore and improve understanding of the dynamics of change – that cut across industries, businesses, and individuals’ career paths – enabled by technological development.

CLIO constitutes a forum for academic researchers as well as practitioners and policy makers to exchange ideas and learn about new developments in the practice of organizing change.

CLIO aims to build theory – i.e. develop and validate new conceptual frameworks and novel methods – and develop empirical understanding in the following major interrelated areas:

  1. Role of leadership and leading individuals – i.e. executives as well as entrepreneurs – to coordinate change and innovation,
  2. Intra- and inter-organisational dynamics in terms of learning, adaptability, new organisational forms, and routine-based behaviour,
  3. Digital architectures and platforms and the ensuing digitalization of organisational processes including learning,
  4. Evolving patterns of the global division of knowledge and labour in and across sectors and the associated set of “rules and roles” of existing and new emerging actors–e.g. start-ups and crowds.

Outcomes and reach-out

CLIO intends to contribute to the academic debates through presentations in academic conferences and publications in top academic journals, organisation of ad hoc workshops as well as convey research insights to practitioners and policy makers through presentations to practitioner conferences, publications in crossover journals, and in op-eds and blogs.
