Enterprise Anthropology: Risk Perception and Management in Business Contexts


Location: Poznań, Poland
Date: 29 Aug 15:30 - 17:15


Room 2.21

"This panel aims to discuss how risks in technological operation, control systems and social interactions are perceived and managed in different business contexts as companies strive to provide not only reliable goods and services, but also new regimes of value and information. Companies in contemporary society are part of global networks that circulate products, information, value, and even authority around the world. The complexity of these networks and the interaction between numerous (and often multi-cultural) actors can become a source of risk and anxiety in daily work and lives of organizations. As business in itself is a series of conflicts and compromises, it also involves complex negotiations of power and authority within specific corporate culture. Thus, in some cases the allocation of risk and responsibility may become not only an issue of technological standards and operation, but also of social values and trust in the business organization. This panel pays attention to the factors that pose risk to companies in different business contexts and discusses the ways companies are trying to deal with it."
