The Spring/Summer edition is here!
This Autumn 2019 edition of e-O&P is devoted to exploring the theme of ‘Creative Collaborations’, as a contribution towards increasing, deepening and broadening our understanding of this practice.

Transitioning through turbulent times: a context
We find ourselves in a period of troubling uncertainty, occasioned by unresolved Brexit arrangements, by the climate emergency, by COVID-19 issues and by the ‘Black Lives Matter’ campaign, amongst other forces. So the combined Spring/Summer 2020 edition of our journal e-Organisations and People is devoted to exploring the theme of personal and organisational transitions, and its implications for AMED and our constituencies.
AMED is the Association for Management Education and Development.
We are a long-established membership organisation and educational charity devoted to developing and supporting people and organisations. As an outpost of independence, we serve as a forum for people who want to share, learn and experiment, and find support, encouragement, and innovative ways of communicating.
We collaborate with like-minded individuals and networks.

We are still here
In these times of turbulent transition, we want to reassure all of us that we’re still very much open for business, if not ‘as usual’. We’d like to express our solidarity with everyone, and do all that we can to support and sustain each other in spirit of community and critical friendship. Above all, we wish you well.
Our events continue
Our scheduled programme of events will continue as planned, now virtually, and we’re looking forward to connecting with our networks in this way. As well as addressing the threats and challenges presented by the climate emergency and COVID-19, we remain open to the possibilities and opportunities that arise for doing things differently – and better. We welcome all feedback, suggestions and offers about how we might do this.
Please don’t hesitate to let us know if there’s anything within our powers that we can do to help AMED and the wider community. Our Virtual Office remains open, and Linda will make sure that your message is well received and addressed by whichever of us is most appropriate. Our contact details are:
W: www.amed.org.uk; ; T: 0300 365 1247; E: firstname.lastname@example.org
If any members and networkers would like to share any offers of support directly, please feel free to post them on our Members Offers page.
With very best wishes
