The Power of “Little Ideas”
MetadataShow full item record
A Behavioral Theory of the Firm (Cyert & March, 1963) and behavioral theory in general as well as Jim March’s subsequent work in that tradition have many valuable lessons for current and future scholars, some more embedded in current work than others. I focus on just one aspect, relating to the importance of modesty and “little ideas” in scholarship. This is an aspect, or quality of Jim’s work has less to do with ‘just’ his written works, and more to do with his character and values and how his character is reflected and embedded in his scholarship. Linda pointed to the importance of the work spirit at Carnegie; that, too, says a lot about the values Jim has.
