Academics from across Alliance MBS have been honoured by the Academy of Management during its annual meeting held in Boston, USA, earlier this week.
Sir Cary Cooper, 50th Anniversary Professor of Organisational Psychology and Health, was the winner of the 2019 Chris Argyris Lifetime Achievement Award for “lasting effects on management academics, practice, and society” (Professor Fiona Devine, Head, Alliance Manchester Business School, pictured, accepted the award on his behalf).
Professor Jonatan Pinkse, Executive Director of the Manchester Institute of Innovation Research, received the Academy of Management ONE Outstanding Service Award for his service to the Organizations and the Natural Environment (ONE) division of the Academy. Over the past years he has been responsible for organising the professional development as well as the scholarly programme by part of the executive team of the division. In addition, he has regularly organised and chaired sessions at the annual conference.
A paper co-authored by Joseph Lampel, Eddie Davies Professor of Enterprise and Innovation Management, was awarded a special prize for the Academy of Management Perspectives Best Article award for 2018. The article, co-authored with Benson Honig (McMaster University), is entitled “Reflections on Scientific Misconduct in Management: Unfortunate Incidents or a Normative Crisis?”. In the article, the authors solicit and then analyse the views of nine scholars of various backgrounds and seniority on the state of management research today.
Professor Gerard P Hodgkinson, Vice-Dean for Research (Faculty of Humanities) and Professor of Strategic Management & Behavioural Science, was also a finalist for the Academy of Management Perspectives Best Paper Award for 2018 for a paper he co-authored with Eugene Sadler-Smith (University of Surrey) on “The Dynamics of Intuition and Analysis in Managerial and Organizational Decision Making”. This article contributes to the growing body of research looking at the dynamics and impact of conscious and non-conscious cognitive processes on individual and collective behaviour in the workplace.
Gerard was also presented with an award to honour 20 years’ service to the Managerial and Organizational Cognition Division’s (MOC) PDW: ‘cognition in the rough’, in which capacity he has served as a ‘distinguished scholar’, giving formative feedback to doctoral students and academics on work in progress.
Alliance MBS also held a drinks reception attended by more than 100 guests at the annual meeting. The theme of what was the 79th annual meeting of the Academy, was ‘Understanding the Inclusive Organisation’.
