Many dissertations aim for a deeper understanding of the strategic decision-making process and the psychological, social, and political factors behind strategic decisions. One of the critical issues that we grapple with is analyzing constructs that are challenging to measure, such as attention, cognition, emotions, sensemaking, routines, learning, motivation, and cognitive biases. Robust attainment of this goal depends on a carefully-planned research design that involves a highly-relevant contextual setting and compatible mixed methods. This PDW offers participants the opportunity to hear advice from scholars who have successfully implemented research designs that capture the strategic decision-making nuances. We also cover topics related to publishing your dissertation from managing the review process to dealing with a manuscript rejection based on our panelists’ own experiences. This session features an interactive format that provides individual feedback on current ideas and large-group discussions.
40 minutes: Moderated panel discussion with senior scholars
