Participation at the 80th Annual Meeting of the Academy of Management
News vom 01.04.2020
Three research projects of Stefan Razinskas are accepted for presentation at the 80th Annual Meeting of the Academy of Management (AOM). The AOM is the preeminent professional association for management and organization scholars and its Annual Meeting the leading conference in this field with more than 10,000 attendees gathering in August to connect and explore ideas about management and organizational scholarship. As of right now, AOM is planning for its Annual Meeting to take place as scheduled from August 7th to August 11th, 2020, in Vancouver (Canada).
The study titled “The role of bricolage for situational constraints affecting daily creativity across contexts,” which is joint work with Matthias Weiss (Ruhr-Univ. Bochum), reveals not only that situational constraints facilitate (vs. hinder) creativity for those individuals who are good (vs. poor) at making do with whatever is at hand (i.e., bricolage), but that this contingency is more critical in an emerging country context than in a developed country context. Extending this single-level consideration of creativity, Stefan Razinskas and Andreas Hundschell (LMU Munich) offer a systematic overview of the extant literature on the relationship between diversity and creativity at and across the individual, team, and organizational levels in their paper titled “Diversity and creativity across levels: A multilevel literature review and future research agenda.” Both studies will be part of the conference program of AOM’s Organizational Behavior Division. Moreover, the paper titled “Moral disengagement after academic setbacks: The moderating role of resilience” is scheduled for presentation in the symposium “Critical events at a critical time: Setbacks and shocks in early academic career stages.” This research, which is joint work with Daniela Datzer (LMU Munich), Martin Hoegl (LMU Munich), and Yvette Hofmann (Bavarian State Institute for Higher Education Research and Planning, IHF), investigates the dark side of resilience – a concept that has received a mostly positive connotation so far. In doing so, it reveals that the more resilient students are, the more likely they apply moral disengagement when being exposed to adverse circumstances, as this behavior appears to help them bypassing moral distress.
