    Dear colleagues,

    I am writing to invite you to participate in the following Symposium that Llewellyn Thomas and I are organizing at the AoM meeting in Boston:

    Framing and Innovation: Discursive Strategies in Organizations
    Monday, Aug 12 2019 1:15PM - 2:45PM
    at Boston Hynes Convention Center in 210

    This symposium explores the use of framing strategies by organizations in innovation contexts.

    While framing processes have been researched by political science, managerial and organizational cognition, and social movement scholars, researchers in strategic management, entrepreneurship, and innovation fields have devoted less attention to how organizations use framing strategically to position their firms in relevant ecosystems and to communicate with various stakeholders about innovative new products or new business models.

    The symposium intends to shed light on the strategic use of framing for innovation to enable rigorous theorizing of this key organizational process.

    The lead faculty involved in this symposium include Joep Cornelissen (RSM) and Raghu Garud (Penn State).

    The symposium includes four research papers that explore different critical aspects of the process of framing to inspire the audience, and a highly interactive discussion facilitated by the lead faculty.
