          Closing Remarks


          Effectuation has emerged in last two decades as an alternative framework to explain how entrepreneurs make decisions in the face of uncertainty. Predicated in marshalling available resources within reach, and prioritizing actions instead of planning or forecasting, effectuation emerged as a powerful concept to researchers, educators, and practitioners.

          In this workshop, we wish explore issues associated with growing a community effectually using as a case in point our experience within the Society for Effectual Action. We will explore questions such as:

          • How to Manage Opposing Goals of Rigor and Relevance?
          • How to Organize a Global Network?
          • What Amount of Structure Facilitates Co-creation?
          • How Can We Rethink and Redo the Ordinary?

          The highlight of the workshop with be a group activity entitled โ€œIl Mercato Napolitano: Co-Creative Shaping of the Futureโ€ in which is designed to connect the available means and affordable loss of individuals with co-creators who also take action to shape the shared future in an area of personal importance.

          Additionally, we will set the stage by briefly presenting effectuation to those not familiar with the concept and a general summary of the 7th Effectuation Conference (scheduled for November 14th-15th, 2022).
