Panelists:

Formal theory is a rapidly growing research area within Strategy. As a result, many important new theoretical contributions are now being made in our field using the language and norms of formal theory. This session brings together some of the most accomplished formal strategy theorists to illuminate the various modes of formal theory, to explain their goals, purposes, and complementarities with other methods of investigation, to highlight what distinguishes good papers good from bad, to provide pointers to nontechnical readers on how to approach this material, and to highlight some of the strategy questions presently on the forefront of this stream. Whether you are an editor, referee, empiricist or budding formal theorist, you will leave with a better appreciation of how this work contributes to the accumulation of knowledge in Strategy.
