The first After methods in Organization Studies workshop took place at Stockholm University School of Business in October 2013 and gathered some 70 participants from Sweden and Finland. Together with an international and interdisciplinary group of lecturers, the participants discussed issues related to research methods based on the common understanding that the world is messy and constantly changing, and that this challenges established methods for developing scientific knowledge. The question is: how can, should and must we as social scientists study the organizing of organizations and work if that we study is in constant change?

The second workshop was arranged at MDH in 2015 and since the question is complex, the After method workshop is planned to be a recurring, biannual event, where researchers can meet to discuss, share experiences and develop knowledge about methodology together. The third After method workshop took place in September 2017.
