In Bartunek’s (2008) article titled “You’re an Organization Development Practitioner-Scholar: Can You Contribute to Organizational Theory?” the author discusses two types of theories that shape actions: espoused theories and theories-in-use. In this Discussion, you examine these concepts as they relate to your organizational practice or to an organization with which you are familiar. Post by Day 3, a few paragraphs explaining how the concepts of espoused theories and theories-in-use relate to your organizational practice or to an organization with which you are familiar. Explain how doctoral candidates and managers could develop or establish these connections between academic scholarship and actual practice. Conclude your posting by explaining what lessons in Bartunek’s article you could readily apply to your professional practice or to an organization with which you are familiar.
