While process studies have become an important part of organization and management research, the term “process” is still perceived as ambiguous and leads to confusion as to what is and what is not a process theory. The proposed panel symposium aims to add clarity to this debate by bringing together and spurring a conversation among five distinguished scholars in this area, namely Raghu Garud, Paula Jarzabkowski, Ann Langley, Hari Tsoukas, and Andrew Van de Ven. In the course of this panel symposium we will offer insights into (i) the most important contemporary issue in process studies, (ii) what constitutes a process study, and (iii) future opportunities and challenges. We will conclude the panel symposium with an audience Q&A.
