Worried about how to navigate the reliability crisis? We can help! As norms of reporting and research are changing, we will explore strategies to modify our claims to make them future-proof. The PDW will explore the challenges in generalization, replicability and reliability. It will apply established and recent developments in the philosophy of science to management research to consider foundational solutions to reliability problems. We will explore abduction, induction, deduction, hypo-deduction, and when claims are valid and when they are not. We will also consider subjectivity and our responsibility of scholars in an applied science. The PDW will include presentations, guided practical examples and roundtable discussions
