Presentation

Anticipating or living (high) growth and scalability of new ventures or new organizations is one of the least studied elements of the entrepreneurial process, especially if you focus on: how do new ventures grow? (Gilbert, McDougall, and Audretsch 2006). Taking this element into account adopting a CSR and/or sustainable development perspective would however be crucial. Indeed, it is by developing and implementing that sustainability and responsibility are practiced within the new venture/organization. If at a startup level, taking CSR into account is a real creative catalyst in the design of an entrepreneurial project (Lefebvre and Radu-Lefebvre 2012), what about the growth stage? How do entrepreneurs deal with it?

The literature on entrepreneurship offers different trends. When it comes to taking into account corporate social responsibility or sustainable development in the field of entrepreneurship, the outcome of the new venture/organization used to prevail on taking into account the whole dimensions of CSR or Sustainable Development in the overall entrepreneurial process. Social entrepreneurship is thus defined more in opposition to traditional entrepreneurship, the economic outcome vs the social one (Peredo and McLean 2006). For its part, “sustainable entrepreneurship is focused on the preservation of nature, life support, and community in the pursuit of perceived opportunities to bring into existence future products, processes, and services for gain, where gain is broadly construed to include economic and non-economic gains to individuals, the economy, and society” (Shepherd and Patzelt 2011, 137). However, the concept is still emerging, but it received more interest from the sustainability community that from the entrepreneurship one (Sarango-Lalangui, Santos, and Hormiga 2018).

We suggest to authors wishing to fully engage in the theoretical integration of CSR and sustainable development in entrepreneurship to take it into account across the entire entrepreneurial or intrapreneurial process by focusing on the most counter-intuitive level: growth and scalability with a sustainable vocation (Bergin 2001).

3 main questions can be addressed for this session:

– What is (high) sustainable growth / scalability in entrepreneurship?

– Are ecosystems adapted to (high) sustainable growth / scalability carried by entrepreneurs?

– What is / are the processes and specific practices involved? And, how can these processes and practices be supported?

Le projet ou la phase de (forte) croissance et de scalabilité des nouvelles entreprises ou nouvelles organisations est une des phases du processus entrepreneurial les moins étudiées, en particulier si l’on s’intéresse à la question : comment la croissance s’est mise en place  (Gilbert, McDougall, and Audretsch 2006). Prendre cette phase en compte dans une perspective RSE et développement durable serait pourtant crucial car c’est dans le développement et l’implémentation que la durabilité et la responsabilité sont engagées et trouvent leurs ancrages. Si dans les phases amont la prise en compte de la RSE est un vrai catalyseur créatif dans la conception d’un projet entrepreneurial (Lefebvre and Radu-Lefebvre 2012), qu’en est-il en phase de croissance et comment l’entrepreneur s’en empare-t-il ?

La littérature en entrepreneuriat offre différents courants. Dès qu’il s’agit de prendre en considération la responsabilité sociale des entreprises ou le développement durable dans le champ de l’entrepreneuriat, c’est la finalité de l’organisation créée qui prédomine en lieu et place d’une prise en considération systématique des dimensions de la RSE ou du Développement Durable dans le processus entrepreneurial dans sa globalité. L’entrepreneuriat social se définit ainsi davantage en opposition à l’entrepreneuriat traditionnel, la finalité lucrative s’opposant à la finalité sociale (Peredo and McLean 2006). De son côté, l’entrepreneuriat durable se « focalise sur la préservation de la nature, le soutien à la vie, et la communauté en poursuivant des opportunités susceptibles d’amener la création de nouveaux produits, processus et services générant des gains (…) économiques et non-économiques, des gains individuels, pour l’économie et la société » (Shepherd and Patzelt 2011, 137). Cependant, le concept reste émergent et a reçu davantage d’intérêt par la dimension durable que la dimension entrepreneuriat (Sarango-Lalangui, Santos, and Hormiga 2018).

Nous proposons aux auteurs désireux d’assumer pleinement l’intégration théorique de la RSE et du développement durable à l’entrepreneuriat de le prendre en compte au travers du processus entrepreneurial ou intrapreneurial dans sa globalité en se focalisant sur la phase la plus contre-intuitive : celle de croissance et la scalabilité à vocation durable (Bergin 2001).

3 grandes questions peuvent-être adressées pour cette session :

  • Qu’est-ce que la (forte) croissance / scalabilité durable en entrepreneuriat ?
  • Les écosystèmes sont-ils adaptés à la (forte) croissance / scalabilité durable portés par des entrepreneurs ?
  • Quel(s) est/sont les processus en jeu ? Quelles sont les pratiques spécifiques et comment les soutenir ?

CfP – The 6th CR3+ Conference: Navigating the Plural Voices of CSR – Audencia Business School, Nantes, France 12-14 June 2018

Call for papers
Deadline: December 11, 2017

CR3+ 2018_Call for papers

Audencia Business School is pleased to host the 6th CR3+ conference in June 2018, co-organized by Audencia and its CR3+ partners, Hanken School of Economics (Helsinki, Finland), ISAE/FGV (Curitiba, Brazil) and La Trobe University Business School (Melbourne, Australia). The general theme for the 2018 conference is ‘Navigating the Plural Voices of CR’.

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) / Corporate Responsibility (CR) (hereafter CR), is situated at the interface of business and society. Much work has been done on the impact of business on society and the ways in which businesses have sought to reduce their harmful impacts and/or contribute to society’s wellbeing. But business and society do not speak with homogeneous voices and nor do the researchers who explore them. A wide range of different actors are relevant in CR, each have different worldviews, values, beliefs and interests, different degrees of influence, and different ways of communicating. Stakeholder groups themselves do not always speak with one voice. This plurality of voices makes it difficult to navigate the path toward CR and has highly relevant implications for teaching and practice. Furthermore, a multitude of different lenses have been used to theorize CR. Consequently, the vast and complex patchwork of voices provides a challenging landscape as well as a rich opportunity for research.
The conference aims to draw out the different voices in CR research and practice. We look forward to exploring the general theme and particularly: (1) the voices of actors often unheard in CR, (2) how to manage multiple voices in business, (3) the usual and unusual theoretical voices in CR research, (4) the different voices in CR education.

CONFERENCE TRACKS

We invite you to submit your papers to one of the following tracks:

  1. Giving voice to marginalized stakeholders in Business & Society research
    This track is an invitation for conceptual and empirical papers to challenge some of the foundations of the stakeholder salience and identification framework regarding marginalized, fringe stakeholders and to provide a future research agenda with the aim of better understanding their 1) identities, needs and demands, 2) roles and impacts, and 3) interactions with business.
    Convenors: Emma Avetisyan and Sandrine Stervinou
  2. Enriching CR research through inter-disciplinary and multiple theoretical voices
    A wide range of theoretical perspectives have been used to explore CR from a management perspective but also borrowing from other disciplines. This is an invitation to reflect on the different theoretical voices, their value and limitations and to explore new lenses through which to study CR.
    Convenors: Céline Louche, Guilherme Azevedo, and Andreas Georg Scherer
  3. Diversity as a Voice in CR
    Diversity is a reality in organizations and can be observed in many different dimensions: Gender, Age, Disability, Sexual Orientation, Ethnic Origin, Religion, etc. This track invites papers that explore the various aspects of diversity and its management under the perspective of CR in an organizational context.
    Convenors: Camilla Quental, Christine Naschberger, Nicole Maccali, and Marcia Cassitas Hino
  4. Innovating toward a sustainable future
    To address the grand societal challenges, innovation plays a crucial role. This track invites contributions that explore the various views and voices on innovation for a sustainable future and engage in a discussion about the need for innovation, its drivers and processes, and its implications for sustainable development.
    Convenors: Jennifer Goodman & Christian Voegtlin
  5. Exploring the SDGs: Plural Worldviews and Practices in Responsible Management Education
    This track wants to build knowledge around pedagogy for sustainability and responsible management education. Taking the Sustainable Development Goals as a guiding concept for responsible management education, it invites empirical and theoretical perspectives to explore how actors in management education integrate the SDGs into their programmes and pedagogical activities.
    Convenors: Martin Fougère, Nikodemus Solitander, Camilla Quental, Umesh Mukhi
  6. Entrepreneurship and society
    This track intends to create a dialogue between CR and Entrepreneurship research. The track is an invitation explore the link between entrepreneurs/ entrepreneurial practices and society and consider entrepreneurship as a social activity embedded in society.
    Convenors: Claire Champenois, Vincent Lefebvre, Miruna Radu-Lefebvre & Kathleen Randerson
  7. Implementing Corporate Sustainability Strategies at the Supply Chain Level
    This track invites contributions to develop and build new insights on governance mechanisms to be used in sustainable supply chain management and consider the plurality of different voices from the supply chain rather than focusing only on focal companies.
    Convenors: Marco Formentini and Paolo Taticchi
  8. CR community engagement
    This track is a call to deepen our understanding of the community engagement of business. It invites contributions investigating the practical challenges associated with planning and decision-making within the area of community engagement and stakeholder management.
    Convenor: William Keeton
  9. Exploring the relationship between artists and society
    With this track, we want to explore artists’ actions in and on society. We invite empirical, theoretical but also critical perspectives to question the relationship between artists and the notion of societal responsibility.
    Convenors: Dominique Billier, Carole Le Rendu
  10. Open track
    We wish to keep an open track for contributions that fit the conference theme but none of the specific tracks.
