Show Summary Details

Preview

Seven management researchers, who participated in a plenary session at the Academy of Management 2009 Annual Meeting in Chicago, present their views on how to renew methodological approaches in management theory and on how to deal with the persistent divide between management theory and practice. Each researcher – Rob B. Briner, Lars Engwall, Tina L. Juillerat, Henry Mintzberg, Frederick P. Morgeson, Michael G. Pratt, and Stefan Tengbald – contributes an essay to the chapter dealing with such topics as experimental research designs, the use of new research methods, the organization of research collaborations, and researchers’ interactions with managers where the goal is the framing, analysis, presentation, and publication of new and/or improved research.
