Please join us to learn about the finalists and see the inaugural award given to the programs helping to promote leadership development.


The recent assembly and analysis of artifacts concerning the emergence and evolution of entrepreneurial impact on society has led to the publication of conclusions that challenge core tenants of management history. These challenges include ‘where’, ‘when’, and ‘how’ entrepreneurship emerged as a distinct behavior, distinctions between entrepreneurial and managerial motivations and actions, critical differences between the innovation generated under entrepreneurial leadership and that caused under professional management, crucial differences between the frequency and magnitude of unintended consequences developed by entrepreneurial leaders and professionally managed organizations, among others. The panel will discuss and debate the relevance of these challenges and suggest fertile avenues for future research.


A thought-provoking and appealing session to unite all MSR members and friends in a mindful, touching, and constructive way.

Complex interrelationships between social, economic and biophysical systems cause ecological challenges like climate change and biodiversity loss.

This workshop brings together researchers to aid colleagues in their efforts to publish Social Issues in Management (SIM) topics in high- quality management journals


While the strategic management field has enjoyed tremendous growth and significant refinement in our questions, theories, and methods of theory testing over time, increasing specialization in our problem-solving approaches has raised some concerns about the commensurability of our theories and the unique contributions of our studies as compared to research in other fields. This panel will discuss the unique contributions of the strategic management field and whether a revised list of fundamental questions may help us best advance the field today and in the future.


Innovation within specific fields seems to be in decline, with a lower number of high-impact discoveries being generated over time. What are the reasons behind this pattern? The TIM Plenary will discuss these important questions for the AOM community with a panel of experts.
