The article synthesizes the interview responses from ten authors who have published heavily cited research in the fields of organizational behavior and human resource management. The authors of these “great works” provided insights on their own works while also providing guidance to authors who aspire to produce future great works in management. The article utilizes facets of the grounded theory approach to analyze the qualitative responses of the authors, which enabled the presentation of common themes of the authors’ responses that might be useful to both management scholars and practitioners engaged in the research process.
