At the AOM Annual Conferences in Vancouver (2015) and Anaheim (2016), the PDWs on Psychological Foundations of Management have met with success. Participants' passionate feedback encouraged us to launch a follow-up PDW proposal 3.0. It aims to intensify research on psychological foundations of management by discussing how differences in attributes across strategic and entrepreneurial leaders affect their strategic decision making and implementation processes, risk taking initiatives, and firm performance.
Studying the consequences of psychological attributes in strategic and entrepreneurial contexts is a relevant issue directly related to the 2017 Academy of Management Meeting Key Theme At the Interface. Our PDW will offer an opportunity for the panel and the audience to focus on two important interface-related issues. The first issue is how micro, psychological factors such as strategic leaders' psychological attributes and processes, are connected to macro, firm outcomes such as strategic actions and firm performance (Kulik, 2017). The second issue is how strategic leaders, often viewed from a macro perspective, manage their interfaces with micro factors such as middle managers, supervisors, and employees, to generate and implement strategic decisions (Sirmon, Hitt, Ireland & Gilbert, 2011).
The PDW is divided in two complimentary parts. In the first part, an invited panel of outstanding scholars will present their recent research and discuss how to join and contribute to a conversation on psychological foundations of management in top journals. The second part of the PDW is designed to facilitate a lively discussion about a set of pre-selected promising research endeavors in a roundtable format.
The target of Part 1 of the PDW are young, mid-career, and more experiences scholars that show robust interest in conceptually or empirically digging into the psychological foundations of management. Participation to Part 1 is open.
Part 2 of the PDW specifically targets young scholars (e.g., PhD candidates, post-docs, junior faculty) that have investigated (or intend to investigate) the psychological foundations of management and crave to gain specific suggestions for their research, as well as all the scholars who are attracted to approach this emerging topic. Participants are expected to be selected on the basis of submission of their research proposals.
Scholars willing to discuss their research during the roundtables are invited to submit the most recent version of their papers (or, alternatively, a 1000-word extended abstract).
Participants to Part 2 of the PDW will be selected by the organizers: on the relevance and fit of their research with the PDW's aims, as well as on the academic quality and impact of their submissions. Part 2 of the PDW offers space for roughly 25-30 participants. The eligibility and submission requirements are to submit: (1) a bio sketch or a full CV; (2) the most recent version of their research paper or, alternatively, an extended abstract or write-up (of about 1000 words) of the paper that they would like to discuss in the workshop; (3) a cover letter clearly stating the question(s) with which they are struggling with.
The deadline for paper submission is July 1, 2017. Please send your paper to the organizers at this e-mail address firstname.lastname@example.org. Accepted papers for roundtables will be notified by July 10, 2017. The PDW organizers intend to design a website dedicated to the PDW.
The team of panelists and speakers will discuss these proposals during the roundtable part of the workshop. In addition, each workshop participant is expected to pledge that he/she will provide a written informal review of the working papers (or extended abstract) of the other participants in his/her roundtable.
