    • 9:00 Moving from Change Acceptance to Effectual Transformation9:00 - 10:15There is broad consensus that business schools need to become more impactful, technology-embracing, network focused, etc. The bridging from change acceptance to institutional transformation has however proven challenging for many business school leaders. This session will develop the argument that effectual action may be the way forward. It involves targeted opportunity seeking and deliberate small steps forward rather than grand scheme mapping of a business school’s future. Based on concrete examples from the business school community and other industries, this session will explore how this approach can help schools benefit from change and move them out of the first-mover disadvantage trap. It involves different attitudes towards innovation and professional development within business schools and novelness applied to community building and stakeholder management.Speakers: Ulrich Hommel
