    We cordially invite you to attend the upcoming AOM PDW on "The Empirical Research on Organizational Search: Current Approaches and the Path Forward" at the Academy of Management Annual Meeting 2024 in Chicago. Participation is open for the presentations and panel discussion (Part I, II, &III), but pre-registration is required for the round table discussion (Part IV).
     
    OverviewThe topic of organizational search has received extensive attention from strategy and management scholars, evolving into a prominent field of research over recent decades. While significant progress has been made, there remain important areas where our understanding of organizational search can be enhanced. These underexplored areas hold considerable promise for future research, especially given the emergence of new data sources and empirical methodologies. In this PDW, we aim to reflect on the empirical opportunities enabled by new data sources and empirical methodologies, bringing together a group of leading scholars on organizational search. 
     
    This two-and-a-half-hour PDW will follow a four-part format. In Part I, four leading scholars (Stefano Brusoni, Abhishek Nagaraj, Melissa Schilling, and Hart Posen) will share high-level insights and editorial perspectives on the empirical research of organizational search. Part II will showcase working papers from emerging junior faculty (Helge Klapper, Madeline Kneeland, and Matteo Tranchero) who study organizational search. Part III will consist of a semi-structured panel discussion among the presenters. Part IV will contain roundtable discussions that enable further interactions between the participants and the presenters. Prospective participants will apply to the PDW by submitting a brief description of a research idea to be explored with the discussants and other participants.
