Abstract

Harley's (2019) encouragement of senior scholars to play an influential role in the conduct of management research is vital. His epistle multiplies the voices convicting this scholarship for its lack of rigour and relevance. Many scholars find the last 30 years of research to have failed both its internal standards (Bedeian, Taylor, & Miller, 2010; Honig, Lampel, Siegel, & Drnevich, 2014; Tsui, 2016) and its external expectations (Aguinis, Suárez-González, Lannelongue, & Joo. 2012; Ghoshal, 2005; Tsui, 2015; Harley & Cornelissen, 2018). This vociferous ‘hue and cry’ for a new pathway invites science to self-correct, with the recent responsibility turn demanding that greater attention be paid to producing credible and useful research findings.
