Session 281

Models and Evidence in Behavioral Strategy

Track P

Date: Sunday, October 4, 2015


Time: 08:00 – 09:15

Interest Group Panel

Room: Governor's Square 9

Session Chair:

  • Phanish Puranam, INSEAD


Central to the research agenda of behavioural strategy is the desire to “ground strategic management research in realistic assumptions about human cognition, emotion, and social interaction”. This session brings together several theorists whose work aims to do exactly this. The modelling techniques these scholars use force an explicit statement of behavioural assumptions, so that how they think about the links between these assumptions, their models and empirical evidence can prove very insightful to those interested in developing the behavioural strategy research agenda.
The panel will commence with an overview statement by Nils Stieglitz, followed by a discussion among the panellists moderated by Phanish Puranam, with crowdsourced questions from the audience. We believe that the resulting discussion will prove illuminating for empiricists seeking to test theories of behavioural strategy, for modelers and theorists with an interest in using behaviourally plausible assumptions in their work, as well as (social) psychologists who are interested in strategic management issues.
