AOM this year was definitely not what we all initially anticipated. However, just as many of our habits and routines have had to change over the past few months, how we attend conferences has also changed. My friends and colleagues never tire of telling me that I tend to see the glass as half full, so – spoiler alert – this might have had an influence on this blog post. It is my pleasure to share my experience with you of this very first virtual annual meeting, and I am grateful for the opportunity to do so. So, with that in mind, I’d like to share two key things that were especially salient to me at this year’s AOM: the collegiality and the job market ...

When AOM announced that the Vancouver meetings would be canceled and the conference would move online, I started thinking about all the things I would miss. But I also began thinking about some of the possible advantages. Maybe having everything online and so easily accessible would mean that I would spend more time in sessions and less time on the street and in coffee shops, thus enhancing my organization and management theory education. Maybe going online with everybody interacting through a flatscreen would broaden the opportunity base for people who otherwise couldn’t afford to attend or, when in attendance, were often overlooked. And maybe the millions ...

As we continue to shift everything online, life is slowly turning into a video game. And with a virtual AOM right around the corner, what better thing to do than to pass along a few cheat codes. You know, remember when hitting Up-Down-Up-Down-Right-Right-Down got you unlimited lives on Super Mario Bros and you could impress your friends (okay, what friends…) by beating the game in under two hours? Ah, those were the days, weren’t they? Well today, as we approach our first video game (ahem, virtual) AOM conference in just a few weeks, we wanted to share a few cheat codes that we picked up by attending and organizing other virtual conferences this summer. ...

Job market recap: With the AOM virtual conference around the corner, catch the important highlights and takeaways of Thursdays with OMT in the latest OMT Blog post by Mariam Siddiqui. Mariam Siddiqui PhD Candidate in Management Twitter handle @MissMarSid I’m a PhD Candidate at a Business School in London, and the last few months have not been the easiest. I never expected the journey of my doctoral education to be a linear step-by-step process. However, no one could have anticipated a global pandemic right in the middle of it, either. Having spoken to my friends, it seems we are all going through similar anxieties, ...

I Love OMT Meet-ups

1 person likes this.
OMT Online Meetups are an initiative launched recently by the OMT Executive Committee to help PhD students and junior scholars talk with and get advice from more senior scholars. Here’s a faculty perspective about the meetups from Robert Eberhart:   I love OMT meet-ups. Let’s face it, research is generally a lonely, lone-wolf activity. Few of us were among the popular crowd and advanced study is often tantamount to at least some social isolation. But we are social creatures who cannot know all that we need. So, as many have said, the virtues of communion with our comrades is both energizing and productive as we pursue writing the ultimate interesting ...

A parallel between industry and academia is that some of the greatest benefits of conferences are the serendipitous conversations taking place in the coffee queues, at the end of sessions, and over networking drinks. As a recent convert to academia, this year’s conference season was important to me as a way of broadening my professional network and ‘joining a conversation.’ (PhD students hear this expression a lot; it has taken me a while to work out what it means.) And if I’m honest, I was also hoping to use the experience to sharpen the elevator pitch for my research. So, the switch to a virtual format – while understandable and an impressive feat – was ...

The OMT Podcast - Season 1

Be the first person to like this.
What could an English doctorate, standup comedian, and startup entrepreneur possibly have in common? The answer is: surprisingly a lot. Marc-David Seidel, Dalhia Mani, Hovig Tchalian, and Lori Yue once led separate lives in separate disciplines. But they eventually converged, having served as OMT executive members, and today they are featured in OMT’s season 1 podcast. We are all familiar with the work of organizational scholars, colleagues and co-authors who are known for studying organizational behaviors, actions, and processes. Yet, quite often, we know little about the lives of the researchers behind these organizational stories. It is therefore delightful ...
