Please check out the abstract of Michael Barrett’s keynote, at the AOM annual meeting (Monday, Aug. 8 at 4.45pm – Hilton Anaheim, California A)
This OCIS-sponsored PDW will take place on Saturday, August 6 2:15PM – 4:15 PM at the Academy of Management Conference.
Process theory refers to theorizing about the effects of sets of actions on outcomes of interest. This is of particular relevance to many OCIS topics ranging from small group interaction to project teams to software development teams. Process theory offers an alternative to variance theory that emphasizes action, changes over time, and complexity. It is based on the empiricist stance that all theory is tentative but that testing provides a mechanism for continual improvement.
The session will be led by Fred Niederman (firstname.lastname@example.org). It will begin with presentation of background material then evolve into a hands on experience for surfacing possible process theory premises and discussing methods that could be used for testing them.
