This PDW seeks to explore and encourage the development of multi-disciplinary, meta-theoretical frameworks ("meta-frameworks") that navigate our knowledge development stocks and help to translate the causes-and-effects for organizational performance. We adopt an inclusive definition of organizational performance. We define it as a plurality of performance metrics concerning all primary stakeholders (investors, customers, employees, and community/ environment), which are considered as the shared set of dependent variables (DVs) for the PDW discussions.
Thus, the purpose of this PDW is to begin the development of a novel umbrella organizing theories, findings, and research agenda to integrate the increasingly fragmented knowledge silos in management studies. We also brainstorm and review ideas on what novel outlets can be created to visualize, host, and curate such meta-frameworks to enable continued updates, and identify what criteria can be used to evaluate the quality of meta-frameworks.
We will group the discussions into micro and macro tracks – each with four concurrent tables, each of which will have one facilitator. Following the concurrent discussions, an integrated discussion will be hosted to further brainstorm a more comprehensive meta-framework covering all levels. The most important contribution of this PDW is to recognize the value and start valuing the novelty in knowledge integration as a new priority in management research as our field matures.
