OB@AOM How to Manage Academic Collaborations: Tips and Strategies from Team Scholars (3rd Annual)

When:  Aug 5, 2022 from 10:00 to 12:00 (PT)
Associated with  Organizational Behavior (OB)

Brought to you by the Making Connections Committee

In this PDW, we draw from current research on team diversity, multiple team membership, and virtual teams, to learn how we can successfully manage complex academic collaborations. The primary goals of this PDW are (1) to enhance participants’ awareness of how they can effectively work together in diverse, multiple and/or virtual teams, and (2) to derive practical strategies they can use after the PDW to increase their own success in academic collaborations. The PDW will begin with a brief introduction to the concepts of team diversity, multiple team membership, and virtual teams, followed by small group discussions in which participants reflect on when they were most successful in their academic collaborations. Drs. Lauren D'Innocenzo, Sujin Jang, and Travis Maynard will then present their cutting-edge research in this field, proposing a set of practical strategies to help participants find opportunities to make their academic collaborations more rewarding and fruitful. Then, participants will develop an action plan for incorporating strategies in their daily lives to make their collaborations more effective and share them with other participants. Finally, the practical and theoretical insights will be discussed and put into perspective by Dr. Deborah Ancona. The PDW will conclude with a summative discussion of key learnings.
