Leading up to the 20th anniversary of routine dynamics research, the purpose of this workshop is to bring together PhD students and early career academics with senior scholars to discuss current and future topics in research on organizational routines and social practices. Grounded in a practice perspective and with a methodological focus on action patterns this growing body of research has important implications for our understanding of fundamental concepts of organization and management studies, such as change, strategy, interdependence, or temporality. Workshop participants will have the opportunity to discuss and further develop new ideas in an open and collaborative setting. Further, the workshop will focus on methodological challenges and provides ground for creating a network for exchange and collaboration.
We have an exciting program and are delighted that several top scholars (Martha Feldman, Brian Pentland, Kristina Lauche, Davide Nicolini, Jörg Sydöw, and Eero Vaara) will join us. The workshop will feature an entire day dedicated to novel ideas and projects, complemented with a day focusing on methods to study routines and practices from several perspectives.
