I enjoyed your company at OCIS and AMCIS doctoral consortium. It was a pleasant and learning experience. It was reassuring that all of us are in the same boat and have quite similar issues facing us.
I am wondering if you are following three paper format for your thesis (or for that matter any one in your department) and do you have specific guidelines for three paper format (like when to defend your proposal e.g. after second paper is completed or at the time of formulating third study etc).
As nobody in my area group has yet defended three paper format proposal we do not have very clear guidelines and it is very difficult to arrive at consensus regarding appropirate time to defend the proposal. It will be a great help if you could share those guidelines/ documents/ information.
Wish you all the best in your quest for thesis completion and job search
