Welcome to the Academy of Management Review's Origins Series, where we ask, "Where does theory come from?" in order to demystify the theory-building process. In this interview series, authors of forthcoming AMR articles discuss how they got the ideas for their papers, and share their process for developing new theory in the field of management. In this episode, Stewart Clegg and Mario Berti discuss their forthcoming article titled "Research Movements and Theorizing Dynamics In Management and Organization Studies."

Article Abstract: "In this article we propose a conceptual model of the processes that regulate theory selection and retention in Management and Organization Studies. Considering the many sources of theoretical variety that characterize our field, what requires explanation is both the proliferation of theories as well as the decline of some schools of thought. We argue that research programs (ordered sequences of theories) lose momentum when the research movements that develop and maintain them fail to attend to some organizing priorities. By conceptualizing theorizing as form of organizing, we describe how research movements dynamically arrange sociomaterial elements (grammars, thought styles, material artefacts and empirical craft), arguing that their sustainability depends on their capacity effectively to navigate the paradoxical tensions that derive from these organizing efforts."
