Engaged Scholarship: A Guide for Organizational and Social Research

Год выпуска: 2007
Автор: Andrew H. Van De Ven

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments

The relationship between theory and practice, research and action, is fundamental to all fields of applied social science. Should research findings and knowledge be useful for science, practice, and policy? If so, how should such research be designed, carried out and disseminated to achieve the twin goals of rigor and relevance? These challenges are particularly relevant in the applied areas of management and organization studies where there is a distinct responsibility for researchers to engage with the "real world". In this carefully crafted and thoughtful book, leading management researcher Andrew Van de Ven both presents the broad intellectual challenge of "engaged scholarship", and also sets out a clear framework and guidelines for carrying out soundly based and useful research for advancing both science and practice.

At a time when some may question the value and status of academic knowledge; and others, contrastingly, urge a closer relationship between researchers and research users--be they businesses, governments or other institutions--the challenge of engaged scholarship is as relevant as ever, and there is a real need for the thoughtful and considered approach offered by Van de Ven. The book both provides a manifesto for engaged scholarship in the social sciences, and clear framework for research design and methodology. It will be an invaluable reference point and guide for academics, researchers and graduate students across the social sciences concerned with rigorous and relevant research in the contemporary world.

Review

"Tour-de-force... [This book] persuasively offers engaged scholarship as a better way than the current status quo of creating knowledge for social science and practice.... A landmark publication that offers potential for a paradigm shift"--Academy of Management Review

"Without both rigor and relevance, business schools and their faculty will loose institutional legitimacy. Engaged Scholarship is a call to action and clear pathway for scholars. Van de Ven provides an insightful set of ideas where scholars can learn from the phenomena in service of insightful research that, in turn, affects practice. This co-production of knowledge opens up fundamentally new ways for scholars in professional schools to conduct their research. This book is a wonderful and important contribution."--Michael L. Tushman, Paul R. Lawrence MBA Class of 1942 Professor of Business Administration, Harvard Business School
