February 6–9, 2014 the twentieth Annual Organization Science Winter Conference will take place in Colorado.

This year’s Winter Conference will be in honor of Michael Cohen, a distinguished scholar of organization studies and an important contributor to the Organization Science community.

Michael Cohen was a major contributor to the “Carnegie School” tradition of organizations and, in many respects, helped to bring that body of work forward with regard to a stronger link to the psychological foundations of decision-making and the enormous potential of computational approaches to organization research and, more generally, the conception of organizations as complex adaptive systems.

Professor Jacob Kjær Eskildsen and professor Linda Argote will present a study made by ICOA researchers Håkonsson, D. D., Eskildsen, J. K., Argote, L., Mønster, D., Burton, R. M., & Obel, B. 

The title of their presentation is: "The Role of Emotions and Performance Relative to Aspirations in Deciding whether to Exploit an Existing Routine or Explore a New Routine."

The researchers have analyzed performance and emotions as antecedents and consequences of team strategic decisions to explore a new routine, versus exploit an existing routine. In a laboratory study, they examine decision making over time and draw causal inferences about the relationships among emotions, performance, and explore-exploit decisions.
