Schreiber Presents Paper at EGOS Conference

David Schreiber Headshot jpgMusic Business Instructor David Schreiber recently presented a paper at the annual European Group of Organization Studies (EGOS) conference held in Montreal, Canada.  Of more than 2,000 submissions his study on “Strategic decision-making practices in music industry micro-firms: A Bourdieu practice perspective” was chosen to be discussed in the strategy-as-practice theme.  This paper provides a rich description into the practices of decision-making within the music industry. He has a forthcoming book review publication in the Management Learning Journal (2013).  The book titled, Practice Theory, Work and Organization: An Introduction by Davide Nicolini, addresses the multiplicity of practice theories available for organization studies today and argues for a pluralistic approach to using them in research. Schreiber also submitted his Ph.D. dissertation for examination with the University of Westminster in London, titled, “An Investigation of Influences on Strategic Decision-Making in Popular Recorded Music Industry Micro-Enterprises,” to be defended in late September.
