Administrative Science Quarterly Paper Honored by AOM

????????????????????????????We are pleased to congratulate Ethan S. Bernstein of Harvard University, author of “The Transparency Paradox: A Role for Privacy in Organizational Learning and Operational Control.” His paper, published last year in Administrative Science Quarterly, has won the 2013 Outstanding Publication in Organizational Behavior Award from the Academy of Management’s OB Division.

According to the Cornell Enterprise Online:

Each year, at the annual meeting of the Academy of Management, the Organizational Behavior (OB) Division presents the Outstanding Publication in Organizational Behavior Award to designate the paper (published in the preceding calendar year) that makes the most significant contribution to the advancement of the field of OB. The award will be presented Aug. 10 in Orlando, Fla.

For his award-winning paper, “The Transparency Paradox: A Role for Privacy in Organizational Learning and Operational Control” Administrative Science Quarterly, June 2012), Bernstein “[used] data from embedded participant-observers and a field experiment at the second largest mobile phone factory in the world, located in China, [to] theorize and test the implications of transparent organizational design on workers’ productivity and organizational performance,” he writes in the paper’s abstract. “Empirical evidence from the field shows that even a modest increase in group-level privacy sustainably and significantly improves line performance, while qualitative evidence suggests that privacy is important in supporting productive deviance, localized experimentation, distraction avoidance, and continuous improvement.”

James Detert, associate professor of management and Organizations at Johnson, and his co-author, Amy Edmondson, won the 2012 Outstanding Paper in OB Award for their paper, “Implicit voice theories: Taken-for-granted rules of self-censorship at work” (Academy of Management Journal, June 2011). You can view a videotaped interview with Detert in which he discusses his paper on the OB Division of the Academy of Management website.
