Zhike Lei Guest Editor for Special Issue in Academy of Management Discoveries
Errors are part of human nature and occur across every sector and organization. Our society rarely embraces errors, or uses errors as a learning and growth opportunity. To open up challenges and broaden current thinking on errors within organizations, Zhike Lei initiated and edited a special issue for the Academy of Management Discoveries. The special issue, Errors in Organizations: Exploring New Frontiers and Developing New Opportunities, includes six discovery studies that seek to move the field towards more innovative theorizing and more effective practice with the potential to improve innovation, quality, and safety. Lei led a team with five top notch organizational scholars to develop the special issue. Four of the six research discovery papers featured in the special issue will be featured in the Academy of Management Insights journal, a new record for a special issue published in the Academy of Management journal.
