“The last year at AOM has taught us some important skills for cooperation and adaptation. With so many people dedicating their time, efforts, expertise, and experience, I have no doubt that we will be better, bigger, faster, stronger… and stay the premiere professional association among management and organizational scholars. I’m excited to see what the next year holds; so, 2021, let’s go!”

AOM's NEW Interactive DIG webpage

If you haven't noticed yet, we recently launched an . The objective was to present the connections between DIGs through member enrollment to each DIG. DIGs all have color-coded cards referencing macro, micro and meso clusters, as well as the current number of members who have joined. When you roll over the card, all of the other cards change to indicate how many members from each DIG are also enrolled in the highlighted DIG. Finally, when you click on a card, a pop-up window appears to show the domain statement, DIG stats, links to other pages, and a "join" link for that DIG.


Please visit and play with this new feature on our website and feel free to for how we may improve or use this technology for other aspects of the AOM website.

Connect@AOM is the perfect place to share ideas, knowledge, and resources. Members are seeking answers in the following community discussions. Can you help?
