The field of management has long decried the research-practitioner gap (Bartunek & Rynes, 2010) and has been criticized for its lack of policy and/or business implications (Aguinis, Jensen & Kraus, 2022). One might argue that this is appropriate given that many of our theories remain either untested or lack replication (National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, 2019). Consequently, our theories lack essential elements for scientific understanding (Kraimer, Martin, Schulze & Seibert, 2023).
