A pleasant surprise in the email tonight while awaiting a Ryan Air flight to Shannon.
It is with pleasure that I write to inform you that your paper with Mary Boone, “Any leader’s framework for decision making,” published in the Harvard Business Review, has been selected as the 2007 Best Practitioner-Oriented Paper in Organizational Behavior by the Organizational Behavior Division of the Academy of Management.
I had no idea we were even being considered! Funnily enough over dinner at Warwick University Yasmin was asking me if I was going to the Academy this year and I wasn't sure. Now I think I will! Last time it was an award for original contributions to Knowledge Management, but this time it feels a lot better. The citation reads:
This paper introduces an important new perspective that has enormous future value, and does so in a clear way that shows it can be used.
[The article] makes several significant contributions. First, and most importantly, it introduces complexity science to guide managers' thoughts and actions. Second, it applies this perspective to advance a typology of contexts to help leaders to sort out the wide variety of situations in which they must lead decisions. Third, it advises leaders concerning what actions they should take in response.
