    We welcome you to attend the PDW on "Novel Methods and Data in Studying Industry Emergence and Evolution," which is scheduled for Saturday, August 05, 09:00 AM - 12:00 PM at Regis, Marriott. Kindly note that pre-registration is NOT required to attend the PDW.

    The panelists presenting at the PDW are:

    • Prithwiraj Choudhury, Harvard University
    • Sergio Lazzarini, Western University and Insper
    • John Paul MacDuffie, University of Pennsylvania
    • Elizabeth Pontikes, University of California, Davis
    • Martin Ruef, Duke University
    • Henry Sauermann, ESMT-Berlin

    This PDW aims to advance the potential use of novel methods and data-generating processes to guide inference when studying strategic management questions pertaining to industry emergence and evolution. These approaches include machine learning, emerging market data analytics, computational text analysis, forecasting tournaments, historical approaches, and surveys. The panelists open the conversation about how each approach can be utilized to tackle questions related to industry studies that remain unanswered due to data scarcity or methodological obstacles. Further, the PDW will encourage the participants to share and gain feedback from the panelists and their peers on methodological challenges encountered in their research process and on possible data collection strategies that may be used to advance their theoretical interests.

    Thank you for considering this PDW. We hope to see you there.
