For Episodes 25-30, we teamed up with the Journal of Management Studies to create a series around their Classic Articles. The Journal of Management Studies is a leading outlet in the field of management, having published some of the most lasting and influential research that shaped the field of management studies and continues to influence new generations of scholars.
In this series, we wanted to focus on the authors as much as on their writing, so every episode (except the last one) features as a special guest either the original author or the author of a commentary article. Uniquely, because we committed to doing JMS Classics series in its entirety, this was also a journey of discovery for us as some of the articles here out of our traditional envelope! That being said, there are some truly fascinating episodes here that shed light both on the thinking process of the authors, their motivations for writing these works, and their reflections over the years, as well as on the opinions and thoughts of the authors of the commentary articles. If you ever wondered what Bill Starbuck or Andrew Pettigrew thought about when writing some of their most cited work, this series is definitely for you!
