Workshop on Behavioral Operations
Pennsylvania State University
This workshop will discuss research in behavioral operations management (BOM) and the state of the field. As behavioral economics is to traditional economics, BOM is a cross-disciplinary approach that moves from normative theories of decision making to descriptive theories of decision making. We will discuss topics, questions and methods well-suited to BOM, and how these fit with other domains. We will offer guidance for conducting experimental and non-experimental research.
