Macbeth and the Three Witches This year we had a few busy days at AoM conference in Montréal, QE. On Saturday we (with Zoltán and Jolán) ran a two-hour workshop called "Shakespeare's Witches". This title covers a drama-based approach to education of executives and executive coaches. The introduction of our conceptual framework was followed by a discussion during which we also showed a sample workbook that we use with our students.
I presented a paper on "Understanding Intuitive Knowledge" co-authored with Fran; as it was only Eric Dane and me presenting we had chance for somewhat longer and very good discussion.
Apart from these two main events I also participated in a caucus on "Intuition in Organizations", facilitated a division round table paper session "The role of cognition in team performance", and received another outstanding reviewer award from the MOC division.

Brighton pier
Some ten days ago I attended the BAM annual meeting with Marc. This time it was held in Brighton, well known for its Royal Pavilion and busy nightlife with excellent restaurants in the Lanes.

I have presented a paper on investigating the extraordinary, which is the draft conceptual framework for the grandmaster project. Marc presented our paper on innovations of extraordinary chefs, in which we argue for Csíkszentmihályi's systemic approach.

Poster presentation at AoM2009
End of last week and the first days of this week I attended the AoM annual meeting in Chicago, IL. There was a slightly lower attendance this year, with just over 8,000 participants. It was busy for me this time again, even though we did not submit as many papers as last year. I a presented poster paper on "Knowledge Levels: 3-D Model of the Levels of Expertise" in this paper we introduce a conceptual model of knowledge levels and describe the characteristics of knowledge at the various levels.
I chaired a paper session "Knowledge, Expertise, Creativity and Innovation: Knowledge Related Processes"; the four papers of the session examined various aspects of creativity and how expertise can be successfully utilised in teamwork. I participated a caucus "Intuition in Organizations", which is the first step of establishing a formal presence within AoM for people researching intuition. I also received an outstanding reviewer award from the Managerial and Organizational Cognition Division.

A photo from the course
I have spent the last week in Zagreb, Croatia, delivering a course on Research Philosophy in Croatian to the doctoral students of the Faculty of Economics & Business, University of Zagreb. Once again, I was able to help young and potential researchers putting their research into a broader perspective and re-examining the bases of their respective disciplines - after all, they hope to become Doctors of Philosophy (PhD).
