Session 285

Micro-foundations and Human Capital: The Power of Multiple Perspectives

Track L

Date: Sunday, September 21, 2014


Time: 09:30 – 10:45

Interest Group Panel

Room: Copenhague

Session Co-Chairs:

  • Anthony Nyberg, University of South Carolina
  • Deepak Somaya, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign


In the strategy field, a revolution in research on strategic human capital has gone hand in hand with a renewed focus on the micro-foundations of our theories. A common focus on people and their organizational context has led to a natural convergence between these two research streams. Nonetheless, scholars from different sub-fields and research traditions approach micro-foundations and human capital in fundamentally different ways and creating a dialog between these different perspectives is the very purpose of the strategic human capital interest group. This panel will bring together leading scholars from different strategy research domains to discuss the main assumptions, phenomena, methods and findings of each domain, as well as points of overlap and intellectual tension with other domains. The resulting cross-fertilization of ideas and methodological approaches promises to develop new insights, foster collaborations and invigorate the already vibrant canvas of research into micro-foundations and strategic human capital.
