OMT WebOrganization and Management Theory Division of the Academy of Management
OMT sponsored a special symposium celebrating the 50th anniversary of A Behavioral Theory of the Firm this year in Orlando. The symposium was organized by Chengwei Liu, Peter Madsen, Vinit Desai and David Maslach. In the tradition of Friday afternoons in Jim March's office, wine and cheese were offered and a toast was raised.
The panelists, Linda Argote, Jerker Denrell, Christine Beckman, Anne Miner and Willie Ocasio, offered perspectives on the past and future of the Behavioral Theory. The discussion was lively and the panelists were joined by esteemed audience members, Arie Lewin and Dan Levinthal.
At the beginning of the symposium, the organizers shared a short video clip from an interview with Jim March who was not able to attend the symposium. The full video can be found here -- complete with anecdotes about life at Carnegie when Simon, Cyert and March were working on their various collaborations.
