Call for Proposals – 2021 TIM Division Professional Development Workshops

The Technology and Innovation Management (TIM) Division invites innovative proposals for pre-conference Professional Development Workshops (PDWs) within the Academy of Management annual meeting, which will be held virtually from July 30–August 3, 2021. PDW sessions provide excellent opportunities for exploring emerging research questions or methods, trying out new workshop formats, and fostering conversations on important but understudied phenomena. They can take a variety of formats––methods workshops, tutorials, debates, roundtable discussions, town hall meetings, to name a few––and address ideas or phenomena that might not (yet) fit in the regular program. PDW sessions are also intended for professional development of the participants, so their engagement is essential. We aim for a program of highly innovative, interactive and diverse PDWs. Past TIM PDWs have delved into such topics as digital transformation, ecosystems, emerging business models, external sources of innovation, lean startups, platforms, patent research methods, and technological change. The Technology and Innovation Management Division is a vibrant community of scholars stemming from a variety of fields and disciplines interested in innovation, research and development, and the management of technology-based organizations.
