The faculty-driven Carlson School organizational behavior research group was started three years ago and is a distinctive element of research at the Carlson School as it includes faculty members across departments and across disciplines. The group has the support of the Dean's Office through resources and other assistance, including the creation of two Behavioral Labs at the Carlson School. The labs boast a subject pool that has grown from 1,500 to 5,000 people.
The group comes together on a regular basis to exchange research ideas, facilitate ongoing and future research needs, and promote the work of colleagues in the area of organizational behavior. The group will host the 6th Annual INGROUP Conference, the interdisciplinary network for group research, in the summer of 2011.
Among the areas of interest for Carlson School faculty members are timing, groups, and social networks.
