Some notes from Disneyland (aka the Academy of Management conference)

August 13, 2008

First time for me at the AoM and it was quite an experience. So, a few initial, quick notes from the poolside in Anaheim.

Daniel and I took part in a session titled Market Devices, which was (apart from a blatant promotion of a book with the same title), actually a very good session. More about this session in a separate post. That session, by the way, was not the best session I attended. In my opinion, the best session was “Financial Markets: an economic sociology perspective”: a set of diverse, but very nice papers, followed by a cracking discussion and comments from Ed Zajac. Again, I will post more about this session later on.

What else? Oh, yeah. We had a little poolside SSF get-together where many of the accomplices in this blog had beers with decent civilians. Among which were representatives of our older brother blog – org theoryBrayden King and Teppo Felin.

    Agreed. The “Financial Markets: an economic sociology perspective” session was staggeringly good.

    But your session was quite stimulating as well.

    I would like to see some cross overs next year.

    Yes, the session that Daniel, Klaus Weber and Dan Gruber arranged was very good. Bruce Kogut’s comments were very good. Review will come after the weekend
