    Please note that we are currently accepting work-in-progress paper submissions for the second part of this PDW, where the facilitators (see the list below) will provide you with in-depth feedback on your projects.

    Call for Submissions to the 2022 AOM Professional Development Workshop (PDW) on "Experiments in Institutional Theory and Strategy Research"

    This workshop provides the opportunity for institutional theory and strategy researchers with interest in experiments to engage in dialogue, discuss research agendas and methods, and receive feedback on their ongoing work. Specifically, the workshop will consist of two segments.

    (1) The first segment begins with a panel discussion addressing the potential of experimental paradigms and measures to facilitate novel research on institutions and strategy and providing an overview of recent contributions of experimental methods to the advancement of knowledge in institutional theory and strategy research. Directly after the panel discussion, the PDW features a showcase research presentation titled "Bringing the Logic of Appropriateness into the Lab: An Experimental Study of Behavior and Cognition" by Daniel Newark (HEC Paris). The presentation outlines one possible approach to explore institutions in the laboratory.

    (2) After a short break, the second segment of the program consists of a paper development workshop. Here, the facilitators provide in-depth feedback on work-in-progress research submitted in advance by workshop participants. Similar papers will be clustered together (based on topic) and will be discussed in small groups. Papers should be related to the workshop theme and can be in various developmental stages; both proposals and full manuscripts will be considered.

    If you are interested in participating in the second segment (paper development), please submit your work by email to both oschilke@arizona.edu and alex.bitektine@concordia.ca no later than July 24, 2022. Note that you may, of course, participate in only one of the two segments if you wish.


    Friday, August 5, 8:00AM to 12:00PM Pacific (Seattle time) (UTC-7)

    At the Westin Seattle: Cascade I-B.
