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 ...

Industrial manufacturers are innovating their business models by shifting from selling products to selling outcome-based services, where the provider (manufacturer) guarantees to deliver the performance outcomes of the products and services. This form of business model innovation requires a profound yet little understood shift in how value is created, delivered, and captured. Our study of two successful and four unsuccessful cases of this shift finds that effectiveness in business model innovation hinges on the three process phases that unfold in collaboration with the customers: value proposition definition, value provision design, and value-in-use ...

I apologize for cross-listing, but Peter’s impact was very interdisciplinary.  Sadly, I share the news of the loss of a seminal figure in organizational behavior, management education, management spirituality, and other fields.  I’ll only sketch Peter’s career here and invite you to explore further, if you are interested. Peter was one of the "four horsepersons" who "saved" NTL (National Training Laboratoris) in the mid-1970s…. essentially launched the field of High Performing Systems in his Organizational Dynamics 1982 article …. coined the term "permanent white water" that caused a shift in OB research to more dynamic environments ….. was identified ...

Having a conversation about long-term care plans with a parent is never easy. It is hard to decide whether an elderly parent can live safely in a home on his or her own or not.  A parent may be struggling to accomplish day-to-day activities but this does not necessarily mean moving. It just means that he or she is no longer able to live independently and safely without some assistance.  Assistance can come in many forms. Tandem Careplanning is a company that offers various types of in-home care. You are guided through the process of finding and managing suitable caregivers to make sure your loved one is comfortable, independent, and stays in the ...

By Judith Walls & Steve Walls 25 March 2020 In the last week you’ve probably had the capacity of your e-mail Inbox tested with communication from dozens of businesses, each telling you about their response to the COVID-19 outbreak. The majority of those messages will have told you to “Stay Home, Stay Safe.” A very small minority will have told you what they’re actually doing to help navigate the storm in a practical way. You might therefore wonder if this is all just another form of symbolic action. And yet, times of crises are precisely the points when companies can prove their purpose, and their substantive commitment to social and environmental ...

“ There have been great societies that did not use the wheel, but there have been no societies that did not tell stories. ” —Ursula K. LeGuin To listen to some scholars of decision-making, it is a great wonder that humans have survived as long as they have. We are constantly prone to biases, rely on simplistic and flawed heuristics and, even when trained in statistics, we fail to apply even the most basic rules of probability effectively.  Despite this, humans have been a remarkable evolutionary success story and have adapted to many different environments. One of the keys to that success is not so much our ability to adapt physically but instead our ...
