OMT WebOrganization and Management Theory Division of the Academy of Management
Monday started with the 2011 Distinguished Scholar Award and breakfast (see our earlier post for complete coverage).
By the end of the day, our room at the San Antonio Convention Center was packed again as everyone gathered to recognize all our amazing award winners.
These awards are made possible through the tireless efforts of our Research Committee, headed for the last several years by Joe Labianca, and starting this year, by Joe Broschak. If you'd like to get involved, drop Joe a line.
We also thank Sage for sponsoring the OMT Business Meeting.
First up were the winners of the Above and Beyond the Call of Duty (ABCD) reviewing award.
The 2011 Louis Pondy Award for the best dissertation paper went to Christopher Yenkey. Christopher recently completed his PhD in Sociology at Cornell University and starts at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business this fall. In addition to winning the Pondy Award, Christopher was chosen as the winner of the William H. Newman Best Dissertation Award. This is the second year in a row the OMT winner has also won the overall prize.
The 2011 Best International Paper Award went to Eric Zhao and Tyler Wry. Eric is a student at Alberta. Tyler just finished his PhD at Alberta and is now at Wharton. We interviewed these two winners in an earlier blog post. Eric and Tyler's paper also won the Carolyn Dexter Best International Paper Award. This is the second year in a row the OMT winner has also won the overall prize.
The 2011 Best Paper Award went to Jim Westphal (Michigan), Sun Hyun Park (Michigan), Michael McDonald (Central Florida) & Matthew Hayward (Colorado, Boulder). This is the third time Jim Westphal has won this award (2006, 1996).
The 2011 Best Symposium went to Forrest Briscoe and Adam Cobb. Forrest was recently tenured at Pennsylvania State University. Adam Cobb recently graduated from Michigan, and starts at Wharton in the fall.
The 2011 Best Published Paper Award went to Harland Prechel (Texas A&M University) and Theresa Morris (Trinity College) for their paper in American Sociological Review. Pictured is Harland Prechel, professor of sociology at Texas A&M.
The 2011 Distinguished Educator Award went to Mary Jo Hatch. This is only the second time this biennial award has been given out. Dick Daft was the inaugural winner in 2009.
Finally, it was time to recognize some of our outgoing elected officers. Both Damon Phillips and Nelson Phillips finished their terms as Representatives-at-Large this year.
And Henrich Greve completed his term as past division chair, joining the ranks of the OMT Division's long and distinguished list of past chairs.
With the awards all handed out, the membership all up to date, it was time for the OMT Artifact, handed out by a crew from Alberta. Pictured are Eric Zhao, Evelyn Micelotta, and Mia Yan.
