Today, a variety of empirical and conceptual papers in management and organization research still build more or less explicitly on established ‘management classics’ in the Carnegie tradition (Simon, 1947; March & Simon, 1958; Cyert & March, 1963).
The purpose of this workshop was twofold. First, to unite PhD students and early career academics with more senior scholars that integrate these management classics into their research. Second, to foster joint reading, understanding, and integration of the foundational works in the Carnegie School tradition. Workshop participants engaged in discussions to establish connections between ‘management classics’ and state-of-the-art publications and to set the stage for innovative, novel research questions. The workshop finished with a video conference with Prof. Jim March.
The workshop was jointly organized in a collaborative effort by the Zeppelin University, University of St. Gallen and University of Zurich.
Special thanks go to the Zeppelin University and the Society for the Advancement of Management Studies (SAMS) for the financial support.
To address the above-mentioned goals, the possible choice of ’management classics‘ may essentially be limitless. In this workshop, the selected ‘management classics’ covered foundational works of the Carnegie school. These works have been influential across a variety of research streams, perspectives, and disciplines such as finance or cognitive psychology research:
Advanced PhD students or Post-Docs who demonstrate a thorough interest in the workshop's conceptual scope by outlining how their research relates to the selected "management classics".
