lines of formal theory development about organizational improvisation. The
chapter examines some of the challenges facing researchers in this area, as
well as the potential for crossover with other research areas. It is
intended as a potential catalyst for organizational improvisation
researchers, reminding us of potential avenues and areas of research where
our knowledge is still limited. The chapter focuses on implications for
academic research and long-term theory development. Priorities highlighted
in the chapter include working to deepen understanding of specific phases of
action during organizational improvisation; deepening understanding of
