Simulation & Gaming article online

Wednesday, January 26th, 2011

Our Simulation & Gaming article “Leadership in Multiplayer Online Gaming Environments” is now online.  Hooray!  Should the article stoke your curiosity, there’s plenty more meat that wasn’t included but is available in my thesis and Ugur’s dissertation.

Our SIOP poster submissions were apparently not worthy this year, which is not surprising given their theoretical nature & gaming content.  We’ve resubmitted to AoM so keep your fingers crossed.  I’ll still be in Chicago and look forward to catching up with the small but determined cadre of researchers exploring organizational psychology through games!  I’m actually looking forward to fully enjoying the first SIOP where I’m not presenting anything.

Leadership in video games

My article “Leadership in Multiplayer Onling Gaming Environments” with Ugur Kaplancali and Ron Riggio has finally been accepted for publication in Simulation & Gaming.  Huzzah!  I’ll update the link when the article is actually available.  Next up in research-land will be the decisions on my SIOP poster submissions, which I should get in a week or two.

In other news, in June I accepted an internship at PepsiCo on the enterprise organization and management development team.  It’s a great team and interesting work and I’m having a blast!

Data Teaser

Wednesday, March 24th, 2010

April will be a busy and exciting month, full of conferences and airports!  The latest EVE data has been analyzed (teaser: players self-reported far more transactional leadership behavior within the game than transformational leadership behavior) and I’ll present/co-present findings from a few more studies at SIOP and WPA.  I expect to post summaries by the end of the April.
