In this summer term, I was visiting researcher at FU Berlin (invited by Prof. Leonhard Dobusch). We further developed our paper on how young firms engage in open strategy-making on blogs. Our submission to the Annual Meeting of the Academy of Management was selected for the AOM Best Paper Proceedings. (The AOM Best Paper proceedings contains a selection of approximately best 10 % of all paper submissions; roughly 3000+ papers are accepted to the conference).
I will present the paper at the “Open Strategy” Session (Program Session: 1787) next week in the AOM Meeting in Vancouver from 7th to 11th August. Together with Maria Paola Ometto (University of Alberta) and Johanna Winter (WU Vienna), I have another paper at the conference, which is part of the OMT session on “Disruptive Dynamics of Institutional Complexity” (Program Session: 1492) .
The journal Organization will soon publish the final version of our crowdsourcing paper. My supervisor Robert Bauer and I are very grateful for the constructive and challenging review process that greatly improved our paper. You can download a final version here.
I contributed to organizing this year’s Austrian Early Scholars Workshop in May. This workshop contributes to the internationalization efforts of JKU management research. Without the generous support of the Upper Austrian provincial government (Landesrätin Doris Hummer) it would not have been possible to organize this workshop. We are in the process of organizing the next workshop, more information will follow within the next months.
