OMT Research Development Workshop: Building Impactful Theory

07.04.2022Comments are closed.

Thanks to the generous support from the Faculty of Economics, Business and Tourism, University of Split, the Organization and Management Theory (OMT) division of the Academy of Management is hosting a research development and writing workshop on May 27th and 28th 2022, which will be held in the beautiful building of the Mediterranean Institute for Life Sciences in Split, Croatia.

The goal of the workshop is to discuss the different roles that theory plays in management research, and critically explore the notion of impactful theory. Thus, the workshop leaders will provide different perspectives on theory and try to unpack the pathways through which organization theory can have an impact on wider society. The workshop will thus contain sessions on: What constitutes a theoretical contribution? How do you contribute to management theory through qualitative research methods? What role does theory play in management practice, and how is theory disseminated to practitioners? The speakers will illustrate, discuss, and give advice for each of these issues, explain their importance in the review and editorial process in top academic journals, and share their experience – as authors, reviewers, and editors – in publishing research through a variety of paradigms, methodological approaches, and empirical settings.

The confirmed workshop speakers are Professor Martin Kilduff (University College London), division chair of the Academy of Management OMT division; Professor Davide Ravasi (University College London), past division chair of the Academy of Management OMT division and Professor Eva Boxenbaum (Copenhagen Business School), division chair elect of the Academy of Management OMT division.

To apply for the workshop, please contact Mislav Radic on m.radic@ucl.ac.uk by sending your CV, motivation e-mail, and extended abstract (in case you would like feedback on your paper). We accept applications until the 15th of April.
