Strategy Microfoundations and Human Capital: What Have We Learned?

Track L

Date: Sunday, October 4, 2015


Time: 11:15 – 12:30

Interest Group Panel

Room: Governor's Square 17

Session Chair:

  • Deepak Somaya, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign


In the strategy field, a revolution in research on strategic human capital has gone hand in hand with a renewed focus on the micro-foundations of our theories. A common focus on people and their organizational context has led to a natural convergence between these two research streams, and a vigorous outpouring of scholarship that has galvanized our broader field. It is now an opportune time to take stock of the scholarship that these energies have brought forth, while also fostering a dialog between different perspectives regarding the human capital microfoundations of strategy. This panel will bring together leading scholars to discuss the main achievements of prior research in human capital microfoundations and to highlight the ideas and foundational constructs that will influence strategy scholarship well into the future. As a natural outcome of this discussion, the panel will also highlight promising areas for future work enabled by the main developments in microfoundations research.
