Developing Theory and Theoretical Contributions

Theory and theory development are seen as crucial to making meaningful academic contributions to bodies of knowledge in management and organizational research. Despite its prominence, the processes through which we theorize are often left implicit, and not typically discussed or taught in doctoral training programs.

Course Description

Theory and theory development are seen as crucial to making meaningful academic contributions to bodies of knowledge in management and organizational research. Despite its prominence, the processes through which we theorize are often left implicit, and not typically discussed or taught in doctoral training programs. 

The course tries to address this very point; participants will through a series of exercises, practical assignments and readings be trained in ‘reading’ theory in journal articles, and will also develop skills in the development of theory as part of their own research.
