Management Seminar - Professor Ingrid Fulmer
Seminar Room 10.039, Level 10, The Spot Building, 198 Berkeley Street, CarltonMap
PRESENTER: Professor Ingrid Fulmer (University of South Australia)
TOPIC: “Muscles, Muses and Manuscripts: Developing and Communicating More Creative Management Theory”
For management scholars, the ability to develop and to successfully communicate about theory is a key skill that is learned and refined over the course of one’s career. Increasingly, successful publishing in top journals requires both theory building and testing, and when it comes to theory building, reviewers expect to be “surprised” by creative and interesting theory. So how do we get more creative in our theorizing? This workshop takes an evidence-based approach to the question: What might we learn from the vast body of scholarly research on creativity and innovation that can be brought to bear in our own personal quest to generate novel and useful (and hopefully publishable) theory?
