This 2-1/2-hour workshop focuses on best practices for designing and conducting experiments that can advance entrepreneurship research. The PDW fosters the actual use of experimental methods by entrepreneurship, innovation and managerial sciences scholars, with a hands-on workshop where participants discuss how to address the challenges they face with experts who have published experiments in entrepreneurship. This PDW continues a sequence of two successful PDWs from 2016 (“Publishing entrepreneurship research using experimental methods”) and 2017 (“Are you experimented? Conducting experiments for advancing entrepreneurship research”). Building on feedback from these previous workshops, we adopt a new format. Based on the prior year, we propose roundtable sessions that are more in-depth and enable greater dialogue/interaction. The themes of these roundtables will be tailored based on feedback from potential participants and will focus on a conversation with participants regarding their own interests and needs.  FOR ROUND-TABLE TOPICS SEE BELOW AND TO ADD YOUR FEEDBACK (ON THESE OR OTHERS) PLEASE SEND AN EMAIL TO THE ORGANIZERS (aom2018pdw@urbig.org).The focus of this year’s PDW will be on engagement with those interested in doing experiments in entrepreneurship so as to enable the further building of a research community of individuals conducting experiments in entrepreneurship. The introduction (Part I) focuses on the community-building purpose for the session and on the practical problems of conducting, evaluating, and publishing experiments in entrepreneurship research. This will be followed with three rounds of expert-led roundtables (Part II) that are sensitive to participants’ interests. The PDW will conclude with a panel conversation (Part III) that highlights the conversation and insights from the developing community.

The current anchor topics of the tables are as follow, but via email you can suggest others, too:

Round 1: Focus on Embarking on Experimental Research Conversations (25 min)

  • Designing Research Questions for Experiments (Dawn DeTienne)
  • Navigating the Institutional Review Board (or equivalent) Process (Kelly Shaver)
  • Causality slipping away: On pitfalls of experimental entrepreneurship research (Diemo Urbig)
  • Mixed-Method Experiments with Multiple Manipulations (Rob Mitchell)
  • Potential topics to be refined based on feedback from potential participants: Qualtrics (and using electronic data collection instruments), Pre-registering of Designs and Expected Analyses, Running Experiments without University Lab Facilities

Round 2: Focus on Experiment Design Conversations (25 min)

  • Manipulations (Scenario, Text, and Video)  (Dan Hsu)
  • Manipulations (Priming) (Magdalena Cholakova)
  • Conjoint (Matt Wood)
  • Potential topics to be refined based on feedback from potential participants: Task Feedback Manipulatio,Sample Selection and Recruitment, Issues when manipulating latent variables (e.g., deliberation),Role-playing Experiments

 

Round 3: Focus on Experiment Operationalization and Analysis (25 min)

  • Within- and Between Subject Designs (Dan Lerner)
  • Validating Research Materials and Manipulation Checks (Denis Grégoire)
  •  Multi-Level Data Structure and Analysis (Dave Williams)
  • Potential topics to be refined based on feedback from potential participants (Field Experiments, Measured variables as independent, mediating, or moderating variables, Control Conditions)
