Trust is a fundamental characteristic of organizational relationships and one of the most frequently studied concepts in management research today. This PDW is aimed at advancing research on trust by serving as a platform for scholars to discuss fundamental issues, engage in dialogue, and help further research- in-progress. The workshop consists of three segments:
(1) The first segment starts off with a panel discussion, in which leading scholars share their thought-provoking ideas on the hot topic of “distrust”;
(2) For the second segment, attendees break into roundtables to discuss relevant issues in current trust research. Each table will start out with a particular topic but may move on to other issues as the discussion unfolds. Topics may include (but are not limited to): trust and distrust, trust violation and recovery, performance consequences of trust, dimensions of trust, measuring trust, trust-building, trust and control, and trust in teams;
(3) The third segment consists of a paper development workshop, in which the facilitators provide in-depth feedback on work-in- progress trust research previously submitted by workshop participants. These papers should be in an advanced developmental stage, targeted at a scholarly management journal, and no more than 40 double- spaced pages in length.

Registration requirement: To pre-register, please go to and enter in the requested information, including whether you wish to only participate in the first two segments, or also in the third (paper development) segment. The latter will require you to upload a paper of your project-in-progress. Make sure you pre-register for the PDW no later than July 23, 2017. After entering all the requested information, you will receive an approval code that allows you to officially register for the PDW. Note that uploading a paper is not a guarantee it will be accepted for the paper development segment. We will be sending out notifications in the week of July 24.

Bart de Jong & Oliver Schilke
