I am delighted to announce a virtual panel on “Who should benefit from organizational research?” This panel was inspired by an Editorial Essay written by Gerald F Davis in Administrative Science Quarterly entitled “What Is Organizational Research For?” Professor Davis is editor of the Administrative Science Quarterly, the Wilbur K. Pierpont Collegiate Professor of Management at the Ross School of Business and a professor of sociology at the University of Michigan.
We have reproduced an extract of that essay here, and invited responses from five leading organization studies scholars. In each of the following days this week, we’ll post a response from the following scholars:
Steven Ackroyd, emeritus professor, Lancaster University Management School.
Nancy DiTomaso, Professor of Management and Global Business at Rutgers Business School—Newark and New Brunswick.
Paul Hirsch, the James L. Allen Professor of Strategy & Organizations at the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University.
Steven Vallas, professor of sociology, Northeastern University.
Hugh Willmott, professor in organization studies, Cass Business School, City University London, and Cardiff Business School.
