How individuals experience and respond to organizational change projects has been deemed as critical for successful change implementation. Research on this important topic has received substantial attention from scholars in various management disciplines over the last couple of decades. This PDW aims to bring leading ‘micro-perspectives to organizational change’ scholars together in a panel discussion to provide a critical view on the current state of the literature and ignite an active dialogue. This session also allows for meaningful connections to be forged between panelists and participants. In the first part of the workshop, the panelists present brief statements summarizing their perspective on the current state of the organizational change literature, followed by an interactive question-and-answer session. Drawing on the results of these discussions, we hope to derive suggestions for an agenda of continued integrative theory building and empirical research on organizational change. In the second part of this workshop, panelists and junior researchers will be grouped by theme to share feedback on selected research projects in roundtable-style discussions. Overall, this PDW aims to inspire a fruitful dialogue between scholars to push the boundaries of, and to broaden our sight on, organizational change research.
The workshop is designed to span 2 hours in total. The first hour will include panelist presentations on the topic along with a question and answer session. All are welcome for this portion.
