Why Theory Matters

  Why Theory Matters 2013
Topic

Strategy and Innovation

Date

October 10-11, 2013

Details

In the real word of practicing managers, the word "theory" often has the negative connotation of being far removed from the real-world challenges of a practicing manager. In fact, theory is often considered to be the opposite of practice.

In this event we want to discuss whether there is perhaps nothing more practical than a good theory and why theory and real world managing are far from incompatible. In doing so, we will address the following questions:

  • What is theory? And what makes a good theory?
  • Why does theory matter to me in my executive position? 
  • What kind of theories do we use in our jobs to make decisions?
  • How can we leverage theory to enhance our job impact?
  • What are the key pitfalls that we need to avoid in our theorizing?
  • How can we systematically develop theory and what are the benefits of doing so?

Target audience:

  • Project Managers
  • Team Leaders
  • Other executives with important decision making responsibilities
