Join our SMS Workshop "Connecting micro-strategizing to macro-phenomena – challenges and opportunities for qualitative research"
Saturday, 30/9: 09:00-12:00Room: Chestnut West
Panelists and roundtable hosts
In this workshop participants will learn about the challenges and opportunities in qualitative research for connecting micro-activities with current macro-level phenomena in strategic management research.
Companies are confronted to strategize for tackling grand challenges and wicked problems such as climate change, equality, peace, poverty, and digitalization. These macro-phenomena are often abstract and multi-faceted, with a multitudinous amount of interrelated variables. Despite the opportunities and relevance of addressing this topic for research and practice, connecting micro-activities to a macro-level phenomenon poses challenges for qualitative research in strategic management.
This interactive workshop will address the challenges and opportunities as part of two parts: In the first half we ask panelists to share best-practices and opportunities to tackle the challenge of case selection, collecting and analyzing data, and theorizing from findings. In the second half each panelist will host a roundtable that allows participants in a "world cafe" format to gain in-depth insight and feedback on their related challenges from their ongoing work.

The "sister"-workshop on "The Process of Publishing Strategy Research: Journeying Along the (sometimes bumpy but ultimately successful) Paths to Publication" will take place from 1:00-3:00.
To reflect on the workshops and get to know each other, we also want to draw your attention to an event organized by the Strategy Practice IG: Socializing at the Toronto Craft Beer Market. The event starts at 5 pm (everyone can be back in time for the conference opening).
