50 Years of Organization Behavior Research in Taiwan: Deepen, Rethinking, and Re-envision
Since 1992, Taiwanese organizational behavior scholars have regularly held international academic seminars every ten years to review the topics and orientations of organizational behavior research. On the topic, scholars discuss the degree of deepening the importance of organizational behavior issues in Taiwan, such as organizational leadership or organizational identification, and reflect on what research issues have been solved so far? What problems are still unresolved? How to overcome existing limitations and deficiencies to look to the future? Further, with the advancement of technology and the shift of work paradigms, what research issues can organizational behavior researchers create or reinvest? For example, the development of workplace mental health issues can build a new workplace ecosystem for Taiwan, allowing business organizations to move towards a new realm of happiness and fulfillment. Therefore, regular inspection and review of local organizational behavior research topics can be used to develop not only new organizational behavior research topics and patterns but also effective solutions to corporate problems, so that companies can improve and reinvent themselves.
On the research route, organizational behavior scholars are committed to examining the autonomy and innovation of previous research, hoping to move from the “theoretical Chineseization” approach to a new realm of “Chineseization theory”, so that local research results can stand on the international academic stage and expand the influence to global academia. Therefore, what research strategies are needed for the future academic development process? Is the etic research orientation a necessary process for the emic research orientation? Is it possible to integrate the two above research orientations to carry out the development of new theories? In the cross-cultural research approach with a revised orientation, a local research approach with both exploration and development orientations, and a global research approach with a fusion orientation (Cheng Bor-Shiuan & Huang Min-Ping, 2019), which way should researchers choose? Through the deepening, reflection, and prospect cycle of scholars’ research, the research on Taiwan’s organizational behavior can be developed towards comprehensive development, and the research topic of Taiwan’s local organizational behavior can become a new focus of the international academic research community.
The theme of this conference is “Fifty Years of Organizational Behavior Research in Taiwan: Deepening, Rethinking, and Re-prospecting”. We will conduct in-depth discussions on the research topics and research orientations of organizational behavior in the past to stimulate new research thinking and perspectives. This in turn develops possible organizational behavior solutions and countermeasures for local business organizations. Through the convening of this conference and the communication platform, we hope to provide new insights into the research and practice of organizational behavior in Taiwan. We sincerely welcome scholars and practitioners who pay attention to this topic to contribute their theses, so as to promote dialogue between communities and to establish an ecosystem between academic research and practical work.
