Breakthroughs occur when the boundaries of current knowledge are pushed. In this workshop, we will focus on how new methods and data can push the frontier of strategy research to generate novel insights. The session will include a panel discussion and a workshop.
Part A: Panel Discussion: Denisa Mindruta (HEC), Hong Luo (Harvard University), Giada DiStefano (Bocconi University), Dan Elfenbein (Washington University in St. Louis), Evan Starr (University of Maryland) - open to all participants.
Panelists will share insights on publishing research using frontier methodologies. What challenges have they faced from editors and reviewers? How have they dealt with these challenges? What are the advantages in pushing frontier methodologies into “mainstream” strategy research? In the second portion, panelists will address the idea of what kinds of questions can be answered with frontier methods and what are the limitations.
Part B: Round Tables Participants will discuss their research and interests with panelists in roundtables. The roundtables will provide participants the opportunity to gain personalized feedback on their research ideas from faculty panelists. Participants will be asked to submit short abstracts of their ideas or questions prior to the workshop. Potential Round table topics include: Method specific table topics (i.e. machine learning, simulations, etc.), Research design with “frontier” methods, Publishing on the frontiers and navigating the R&R process Going on the market with frontier methods: the opportunities and pitfalls
