  • 2016

    The Learning Research and Development Center at the University of Pittsburgh and the Tepper School of Business at Carnegie Mellon University co-sponsored a conference titled, “Learning in Social Contexts,” organized by John Levine and Linda Argote in May 2016.

    The conference brought together leading researchers from several disciplines (e.g., social and cognitive psychology; education; organizational behavior; strategic management) whose work addresses learning processes and outcomes in social contexts. The goal of the conference was to highlight current work on both individual and collective learning. Although substantial theoretical and empirical work has been done within each of these traditions, little effort has been made to bring them together. It is hoped that the conference will promote development of a more integrated perspective on learning in and learning by groups and organizations.

  • 2006

    Behavior Theory of the Firm (May 26-27, 2006). This influential book, coauthored by Richard M. Cyert and James G. March over 40 years ago, continues to have a major impact on today. The conference took stock of the work's impact and suggested promising directions for future research on the behavioral theory of the firm. Because the concept of organizational learning was introduced in the book, it is fitting that the CLIK center hosted the conference, which was co-sponsored by the Carnegie Bosch Institute (CBI). The conference is tied into a special issue of organization science. The co-editors of the special issue are co-organizers of the conference. Mie Augier (Stanford University), Henrich R. Greve (Norwegian School of Management, BI), Dan Levinthal (Wharton), Michael Prietula (Emory University) and Linda Argote (Tepper School of Business). We were delighted that Jim March visited Tepper to participate in the Conference. A highlight of the conference was Dean Ken Dunn's announcement that a classroom at the Tepper School of Business would be named in honor of James G. March.
