In this concluding chapter, we survey this handbook’s abundant content to synthesize the many findings and highlight what has been learned from positive organizational scholarship research since its infancy. These findings are grouped into six key categories: complicating the meaning of positive; specifying mechanisms undergirding generative dynamics; noting key outcomes; identifying positive human resource and organizational practices; and advancing construct development. As we discuss various authors’ work, we include associated chapter number for your reference. We conclude this chapter by identifying core questions that can help shape an agenda for future research and help increase the impact and insights of a POS lens.
