I received some wonderful news today. My paper, entitled On the use of critical realism to advance governance research beyond correlations, has been accepted onto the main programme of the prestigious British Academy of Management Conference, to be held in Belfast, Northern Ireland in September 2014. You can read the abstract on the Research page if you'd like to know a bit more. (A copy of the full paper will be posted after it is presented at the conference.)
It's humbling to know that others see my work as worthy to be included at this conference. I'm grateful for the opportunity. The feedback that the three reviewers provided (through the usual double-blind review process) was really helpful—both in terms of tweaking the paper, and as guidance for the doctoral thesis as it comes together through the remainder of 2014. Now, to save my pennies for the flights!
Thoughts on corporate governance, strategy and the craft of board work; our place in the world; and, other things that catch my attention.
