Workshop Information

The Strategic Leadership & Governance Interest Group is offering a half-day Ph.D. Candidate & Junior Faculty Paper Development Workshop at the 2016 Strategic Management Society meeting in Berlin. Although all members of the IG are invited to participate, preference will be given to advanced Ph.D. candidates (those who have defended their dissertation proposals) and junior faculty (within three years of graduation).

Our workshop will commence with a paper development session offering participants the opportunity to discuss their work in small groups, in a round table format.  Participants in each group (consisting of the authors of 3 to 4 papers with a common theme or methodology) will exchange feedback during this portion of the program. Experienced strategic leadership and governance scholars will facilitate each group discussion.

Immediately following the paper development session, a panel of strategic leadership and governance scholars will discuss important aspects of the research process, including publication advice, the role of the reviewer, and developing a research stream beyond the dissertation.  A Q&A session will follow.
