Ph.D. Seminar Assumptions, Theory Building, Managerial Action and Societal Needs


Description

A growing number of scholars are turning their attention to the role of assumptions underlying our theories. Assumptions, or the lenses through which we see the reality, drive our theories and organizational designs, which in turn drive the results we get at the personal, organizational, and societal levels. This five-module Ph.D. seminar is intended for students interested in the linkages between assumptions, theories, managerial practices, and the public good to provide an interactive forum to address those linkages. In particular, we will discuss (1) the linkages between assumptions and theory building, (2) the linkages between assumptions and managerial practice, (3) the linkages between assumptions and the public good, and (4) the importance of making our assumptions as explicit as possible in order to subject them to public scrutiny and understand their impact on theory building, managerial practice and the public good.

Structure and Schedule:

Every module will last half a day and will have the following structure:

1 Discussion of no more than three readings around five assignment questions:
  • One-paragraph summary of the reading (What is the message of each reading?)
  • Three takes-away from the reading (What are the contributions of the reading to our knowledge?)
  • Relationship among the readings
  • Main assumptions
  • The impact of the assumptions on the topic of the day (e.g. Theory Building, Theory of Management, Managerial Action, etc)

2 Integration of our knowledge on the topic

3 The next steps: what are the research needs still unmet? Alternatives for further research.
