How to Do Relevant Research – part 2: 

Navigating the Networked Value Stream of Organizational and Management Research


Speakers: Dr. Susan Albers Mohrman, Prof John Boudreau and Prof Christopher G. Worley


The eco-system of organizational knowledge is an expansive, diverse, and dynamic network of actors and activities. Organizational researchers who aspire to have a positive impact on practice face the demanding task of locating their work in space and time, taking into account the coevolution of many forces that are shaping organizations and the arc of time. Knowledge advances and becomes integrated into practice through networks of people and activity. This webinar will include case examples of research programs that have navigated the dynamic knowledge eco-system and made strong contributions to practice over time.


Time: Thursday, 14th October at 7am (Pacific) / 10am (Eastern) / 3pm (London) / 7.30pm (Delhi). This webinar is scheduled for 90 minutes (including Q&A).
