Latin American practice & process gathering (LAPPG) 2024

Connecting the Latin American community of Research in Practice and Processes

  • Virtual Preprogram “Key concepts of practice and process perspectives in Management and Organization Studies”
  • Keynotes
  • Research Clinics
Practice and Process Studies (PPS) take a research approach that focuses on understanding how practices and processes work and evolve in different organizational contexts. These studies investigate how organizations emerge, develop, or disappear over time, and analyze the factors that influence these processes, such as internal and external tensions, conflicts, and power dynamics, among others.

PPS adopt a multidisciplinary approach that combines theories and methods from various disciplines, such as sociology, organizational psychology, economics, and anthropology, among others. The objective of Practice and Process Studies is to understand how practices and processes are produced and transformed in organizations, to generate applied knowledge to improve efficiency, adaptability, and organizational performance.

In Europe, Africa, Asia and Australia, Practice and Process initiatives have been established to disseminate, develop, and advance related studies. However, access for Latin American academics to these initiatives is often difficult. Although there is a growing community of PPS researchers in the region, it is fragmented and, sometimes, collaborations are limited to sporadic connections with scholars from around the world or focus exclusively on a single country, such as Brazil. Paradoxically, much of the high-visibility research on practices and processes in Latin America takes place outside the continent.

LAPPG 2024 is an opportunity for the consolidation of a Latin American community dedicated to PPS research. It will also offer a space to connect with international researchers interested in Latin America, to promote international collaboration and the exchange of knowledge.
