    Drawing on the experience of five internationally renowned scholars, as well as on the active participation of the audience, this Professional Development Workshop (PDW) seeks to problematize some of the conventional ways of conducting qualitative research and to explore the process of data generation and analysis more holistically. This PDW also aims to open a space for dialogue on how we may increase transparency on the interactive, situated, and complex nature of qualitative research, while encouraging awareness of how the positions that we as researchers adopt shape the knowledge and reality representations that we produce. Because this workshop is developmental in nature, it will focus on trading ideas and practical tips for how to develop more impactful theories, depending on the contemporary organizational sites and phenomena under study. The intention will be to illustrate how different approaches may bolster qualitative research to provide richer and more interesting analyses that lead to more impactful theoretical contributions. This workshop may benefit researchers who, regardless of career stage, wish to explore and engage with the complexities of qualitative research. This PDW contributes to the Organization and Management Theory (OMT) division by providing a platform for active reflection for scholars interested in conducting more integrative and innovative research, cultivating more inclusive and contemporary research practices, and exploring unchartered territory around organizations and organizing.

    Registration is not required and everyone is welcome to attend!
