I recently joined a university effort to build a new, interdisciplinary PhD program in Applied Analytics. The team consists of faculty from medicine, health, nursing, education, physics, engineering, and me, from psychology. The experience has been mostly very positive; it’s a chance to learn about what scholars from other disciplines think about I-O and how we can work together to build something. It makes me wonder why this sort of collaboration isn’t more common at my university. I imagine it isn’t very common in most settings. I wonder, too, about whether this thing we are building is better than any of us or in fact worse than any of us. By compromising with others, do we lose all the valuable bits of our own approach?
