SAGE @ AOM 2016!

Tomorrow kicks off the 2016 Annual Meeting of the Academy of Management in sunny Anaheim, California! This year’s theme is Making Organizations Meaningful. In introducing the theme, Mary Ann Glynn, Academy of Management Vice President and Program Chair, had this to say:

The meaningfulness of an organization is its expression of purpose, values or worth.  It involves a sense of significance that goes beyond material success or profitability; rather, it highlights how organizations can play a larger and more positive role in the world.  It is an approach embraced by the next generation of workers, the millennials (in their mid-to-late 30s), who often focus on making a positive difference in the world and a contribution to society — with organizations, not in spite of them.

Interest in meaningfulness has grown, fueled in part by developments in cognitive perspectives on strategic competition, cultural approaches to organizational resources, positive outlooks on realizing human potential at work, institutional insights on leadership dynamics, both heroic and sensational, new modes of communication that are social, digitalized and immediate, and the real-world failures of the dominant economic model to assure progress in material well-being for so many.

Making organizations meaningful matters, and it matters in a multitude of ways that are both immediate and far-reaching, ranging from environmental sustainability to social equality, and extending across multiple levels of analysis.  Meaningfulness at micro levels alerts us to engaging employees in work so as to maximize human potential and, at macro levels, it turns attention to organizational identity, culture, reputation, legitimacy and character.  By looking across levels, we can discover mechanisms that potentially amplify or even mute meaningfulness, as well as the contrast of meaninglessness.

Are you going to be attending AOM this year? If so, make sure to stop by SAGE booths 412, 414, 416 & 418!

ORM Best Paper Winners!

orm_200We are pleased to congratulate John K. Kruschke of the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences at Indiana University and Herman Aguinis and Harry Joo, both of the Kelley School of Business at Indiana University. Their paper, “The Time Has Come: Bayesian Methods for Data Analysis in the Organizational Sciences,” published in the Organizational Research Methods October 2012 issue, was selected as this year’s recipient of the ORM Best Paper Award. The winners were recognized in August at the Academy of Management annual meeting in Orlando, Florida.

The paper’s abstract explains:

The use of Bayesian methods for data analysis is creating a revolution in fields ranging from genetics to marketing. Yet, results of our literature review, including more than 10,000 articles published in 15 journals from January 2001 and December 2010, indicate that Bayesian approaches are essentially absent from the organizational sciences. Our article introduces organizational science researchers to Bayesian methods and describes why and how they should be used. We use multiple linear regression as the framework to offer a step-by-step demonstration, including the use of software, regarding how to implement Bayesian methods. We explain and illustrate how to determine the prior distribution, compute the posterior distribution, possibly accept the null value, and produce a write-up describing the entire Bayesian process, including graphs, results, and their interpretation. We also offer a summary of the advantages of using Bayesian analysis and examples of how specific published research based on frequentist analysis-based approaches failed to benefit from the advantages offered by a Bayesian approach and how using Bayesian analyses would have led to richer and, in some cases, different substantive conclusions. We hope that our article will serve as a catalyst for the adoption of Bayesian methods in organizational science research.

Our congratulations to the winners! You can also see ORM best papers from previous years here.

Family Business: Part 1 of 3

As the field of family business continues to grow, so does its influence on management research as a whole. As we recently reported, Family Business Review was singled out this year by Thomson Reuters as a “Rising Star” in the field of Economics & Business. As the 2012 FFI Global Conference prepares to kick off this Wednesday in Brussels, we’re proud to present a three-part series on this exciting field of study.

Today, we highlight its importance to entrepreneurship research with this video recently produced by the Academy of Management Entrepreneurship Division, in which Dean Shepherd, the Randall L. Tobias Chair in Entrepreneurial Leadership at the Indiana University Kelley School of Business, discusses his experience of learning through business failure when his own father had to close the family business. Watch the video by clicking here.
