For Season 3, brought to you with the continued support of the IKON Research Unit at the Warwick Business School, Talking About Organizations is joining forces with one of the leading academic journals - the Journal of Management Studies - to discuss eight of their Classic articles! This season is significant in that not only did we collaborate with a major academic journal, but we also had a special guest for every single one of the Classic episodes, many of whom were actual authors of the works!
