    Are you studying, or interested in, emotion in strategy research? If so, you should attend our PDW at AOM 2023 in Boston!

    Emotion plays a significant role in strategy. However, researchers face several challenges when studying and publishing work on emotion and strategy.  What are the most useful ways to conceptualize emotion in strategic decision-making?  How can researchers use qualitative and/or quantitative methods to capture and analyse emotion in strategy?  How can scholars convince reviewers and editors of their claims regarding the nature and influence of emotion in strategy?  This 2-part PDW seeks to help participants-in particular, PhDs and early-career researchers-answer these and other questions concerning the role of emotion in strategy and how to publish their work pertaining to this topic.

    Part 1: Panel Discussion and Q&A – all welcome without registration!


    Panellists: Chris Golding and Mark P. Healey (U. of Manchester, Panel Co-Chairs), Gerard P. Hodgkinson (U. of Manchester), Timo Vuori (Aalto U.), Daniella Laureiro-Martinez (ETH Zurich), Ryan Raffaelli (Harvard)

    • Theorizing emotion in strategy research: An overview of models and theories, and their relevance to strategy
    • Benefits and challenges of studying emotion in strategy qualitatively
