Developing and Publishing Formal Models in Strategic Management Research

Friday, October 23, 2020 Time: 13:00 - 15:00 UTC Sponsored by: Competitive Strategy Interest Group To attend this workshop, please join on the conference platform on Friday, Oct 23 at 13:00 UTC In the past decade, formal analytical models have become an accepted method for theorizing and linking theory to empirics in strategic management research. However, there remains some ambiguity about how to best work with these models and how they fit with the predominant empirical paradigm of strategy research how to publish these models. This workshop, which draws on previous workshops and PDWs offered in the past years at SMS and AOM. will seek to demystify the use of formal models in strategy research and outline the opportunities and the challenges associated with this style of research. In particular, we will focus on the process of developing, leveraging and publishing formal models. The workshop will combine panel discussions where scholars will share their experiences of developing and publishing formal models, as well as thematic round tables focusing on specific questions. The intended audience is two-fold: scholars, especially PhD students and newly minted faculty, who are interested in becoming producers of formal research as well as scholars who want to become more sophisticated consumers of formal models. Themes to be addressed in the workshop: Why formal models? Benefits and tradeoffs of formal models. How to read and evaluate formal models paper? How to develop formal models? How to write formal models paper? How to leverage formal models for empirical research? How to publish formal models papers?
