Research in management revolves around firms & markets, operating at a
macro-meso level, but necessitates assumptions about the behavior of
individuals. The Behavioral Strategy workshop at AoM is a forum to
deliberate realistic, parsimonious & generalizable theories linking
micro-behavior to macro-outcomes in organizations & markets. Back for the
second year, it features an expanded panel of top scholars in the broad
research area of behavioral strategy.

Speakers will discuss what constitutes behavioral strategy, provide examples
of research & suggest future research opportunities. Participant will
develop their own work in dialogs on substance & method. We expect a diverse
crowd, some prominent & some promising, from economics, psychology,
sociology & organizational theory, utilizing methods such as experiments,
simulations, archival data & qualitative fieldwork.
