What is most challenging in research project development? Lack of novel ideas may be one of the most critical ones, given the rich literature in most subject areas. How can we generate new ideas?  How can we make sure that our new ideas are novel and significant enough? How can we offer novel insights in a mature area? In this session, I will share a strategy for idea generation during various stages of research lifecycle, in the context of developing strategy studies with unique features of emerging markets.
