AOM 2021 PDW11132 (OMT)
USING SPORT DATA TO ADVANCE MANAGEMENT THEORY
If you are considering working with sport data, you cannot miss this AOM's Virtual PDW (Live - Synchronous) that will bring together a selection of authors and editors who recently published in top journals using sport data to advance management theory.
Our PDW will combine hands-on insights, state-of-the-art research presentations, senior and junior scholars' discussion, and feedback on participants' paper drafts and research proposals.
Our PDW will tackle the following questions:
Building on successful editions of this workshop at AOM in the previous five years, this two-part PDW will (1) bring together a panel of scholars to share experience in publishing management research with sport data and (2) provide feedback and developmental support in the second part of the workshop for scholars that are in the process of using sport data in their projects or who plan to use sport as a setting to study their research questions.While the first part of this PDW will be open to everyone with no registration required, those who wish to join the Part II of the workshop need to submit a full paper (40 pages max as per AOM Conference format guidelines) or a proposal (max 5 pages, single-spaced, excluding references and tables). Participation to the first part is not a mandatory requirement to submit to the second part, and vice versa. Please send the submissions at this link.
Deadline to submit your work for the Part II of the workshop: July 9th ET.
Panelists and Topics
The panelists have been selected due to their specific and complementary expertise with using sport data in recent management publications. While the workshop is sponsored by the OMT division, the workshop will also engage with topics of interest for members of the HR, MOC, OB, RMD, STR, TIM, and other divisions. The workshop will host one or more authors from each of the following papers (each paper is related to a different sport and theoretical perspective):
