If we fail to examine the likelihood of illegal and unethical behavior, strategy studies risk being seen as cheerleaders for the official and formal sides of organization, while missing the informal realities that also explain our findings. More research into how rules are broken will help our field to better connect the proverbial corporate trees we examine with the larger forests they inhabit.
