“I see this as a recognition of the value of doing the kind of research that I do, based on the analysis of organizational processes evolving over time, rather than simply focusing on static relationships between variables. Receiving an award like that is a recognition from the Academy that this kind of research, as well as qualitative research more generally, is appreciated and valued. So I'm very pleased about that. It encourages other scholars to engage in that kind of research.”
Ann Langley is the 2022 recipient of the Academy of Management’s Distinguished Scholarly Contributions to Management Award. Ann is an Emerita Professor at HEC Montreal with 30,000 citations on Google Scholar, who has made an important impact in the world of management research.
Born in the UK, Ann received her BA in Mathematics and MA in Operational Research from the University of Oxford and the University of Lancaster, respectively. Her first job was in the cocoa research unit for global chocolate confectionary Mars Ltd., located in Slough, England. When she later moved to Montreal, Quebec to be with her husband, she transitioned her career into the healthcare sector. It was there she developed an interest in organizations that have a lot of moving parts and a non-traditional hierarchy—what she calls “pluralistic organizations.”
Her most well-known research focused on analyzing process data—based on accounts, interviews, observations, all spread out over time—to devise theoretical contributions to the field of management.
