A volume in Qualitative Organization Research Series Editor(s): Jean M. Bartunek, Boston College; Kimberly D. Elsbach, University of California - Davis and John A. Wagner, Michigan State University Over the past ten years, the Davis Conference on Qualitative Research has become the world's leading conference for qualitative researchers in organizational studies. The authors of the "Best Presentation Awards" at the Davis Conference from the past four years have contributed chapters to this volume. These papers cover topics ranging from organizational name changes and organizational afterlife, to the use of written letters to build relationships and the use of a "creative foil" to improve one's leadership image. Yet all of these papers are similar in that they benefited from the community of over 100 scholars developed through the Davis Conference, and represent qualitative research at its very best.
