Welcome to the Conference

The School of Management at RMIT University welcomes you to the website for the 31st annual Australian and New Zealand Academy of Management (ANZAM) Conference.


The Conference will be held at RMIT University’s city campus – in the heart of Melbourne’s CBD. The Conference will begin on the evening of Tuesday 5 December, with a welcome reception in the Courtyard of the historic State Library of Victoria, and will conclude on Friday 8 December with some closing drinks.

The theme of this years’ Conference is Creative Disruption: Managing in a Digital Age. While technological disruption is not new, the pace of change and the potential of its impact are enormous. The grand challenge confronting managers of this decade is to know how to harness and leverage disruptions in a creative and bold way.


Melbourne, Australia’s cultural capital, is a dynamic and cosmopolitan city. RMIT city campus is located right in the heart of it all, surrounded by great restaurants, cafes, theatres, galleries and parks.


On behalf of the 2017 Conference Organising Committee I very much look forward to welcoming you to Melbourne and RMIT in December for what will be an exciting and thought provoking conference.


We hope you enjoy the Conference and everything Melbourne has to offer.



Dr Cameron Duff
2017 Conference Chair
