The proposed PDW builds on prior Process Research PDWs to help scholars reflect on the challenges of, and various approaches to, representing process in process research. Portraying processes, versus entities, and conveying these richly and convincingly in written form is difficult for process researchers at any stage of their careers. This PDW aims to open up the conversation about representing process, to convey how ‘messy’ (and creative!) it can be, and to develop some strategies and approaches that are effective starting points for scholars seeking to convey process in their research and writing. Our proposed PDW is now in its 12th year, and it attracts scholars from across AOM divisions who want to share and learn about methods for conducting process studies. This year’s proposed PDW will build on the success of past PDWs that have explored how data, theories and methods can be used to advance process research. The aim of the first part of the PDW is to bring the practice of process research to life and generate discussion. The second part of the PDW provides participants with opportunities to receive feedback on their own process research in small group discussions with past and present Process Research PDW presenters.
