Taking our point of departure in organizational paradox theory, this PDW explores pathways for productive interactions (Spaapen & Van Drooge, 2011) between complex theory and actionable practice. A group of experienced scholars, educators and practitioners discuss and share their experiences, tactics and tools for facilitating reflection and action through education, interventions and organizational development-initiatives informed by paradox theory. We pose the questions: How can we as scholars and practitioners realize the practical impact potential of paradox theory? And how can we as scholars and educators assist managers and other learners to pass the learning thresholds of paradox theory?
