"Why Rigorous Strategy Research Requires Behavioral Theoretical Assumptions?"

Speaker: Philip BROMILEY
UC Irvine

7 March 2007 - From 16h30 to 18h00

Professor Bromiley will argue that assumptions of rationality and market equilibrium are inconsistent with rigorous strategic management research so strategic management should adopt behavioral assumptions.

Many strategy scholars implicitly adopt a behavioral view by assuming firms can make better or worse decisions, and then trying to understand the characteristics of these decisions. Clearly adopting behavioral assumptions will strengthen their theoretical arguments and avoid inherent contradictions and arbitrariness associated with rationality and equilibrium assumptions. The talk will present both the case for behavioral assumptions, and the errors in many common justifications of rationality assumptions.
The talk draws on a paper by Bromiley & Papenhausen (2003) and Bromiley's The Behavioral Foundations of Strategic Management (Blackwell, 2004).
