The Impact of Organizational and Management Control on People Lives

A major conference organized by ESSEC in partnership with Ile de France and GESTES.

Organizational and management control theory and practice have undergone rapid developments and achieved significant refinement in recent years.

Yet, the effects of organizational control and management control systems (MCS), in particular on managers’ and employees’ conditions of work, job satisfaction, psychological health and general well-being have remained somewhat sidelined. When they have been considered, analyses have either concentrated on beneficial effects only or taken a rather cynical perspective of control as a tool of domination and repression.

This conference, set to take place March 18th, aims to explore and discuss issues related to the impact of control on managers’ and employees’ lives from a broad and open perspective – considering positive as well as negative aspects. It will include a keynote addresses by Laurei Burney of Baylor University, Jean-Paul Buchet or Observatoire des cadres and David Marginson of Cardif University.
