    Saturday, Aug 10, 2024, 3:00PM - 6:00PM (CT) | Sheraton, Sheraton Ballroom X - Level 4

    Pre-registration Deadline: July 15th, 2024

    Recent years have witnessed rapidly growing interest in the topic of scaling within management scholarship. Existing research has explored the phenomenon of scaling from different perspectives, such as high growth rates, organizational scaling, digital scaling, and global scaling. Along with the emergence of various streams of scaling research, different definitions of the concepts of 'scaling', 'scalable', and 'scalability' have been advanced and operationalized. This PDW aims to integrate these emerging conversations and provide an overview of this field that is especially valuable to junior scholars. The PDW will be structured with four panelists drawing on their research to present important perspectives on scaling, followed by a commentary discussion by two experts in the field. In addition, we will engage with audience members through various activities, including polls, a Q&A session, and breakout discussions. By assembling a group of scholars undertaking cutting-edge scaling research, we hope to advance our understanding of the scaling phenomenon, provide junior scholars with an overview of the topic, and facilitate discussions to generate new ideas for future research.
