The Academy of Management Board of Governors is pleased to announce the next editors of AMD, AMLE and AMR. Chet Miller, University of Houston will be the next editor of AMD. Dirk Lindebaum, Grenoble Ecole de Management (France) will become the next editor of AMLE. Kris Byron, Georgia State University will be the next editor of AMR. The new editorial teams will begin to receive manuscript submissions on 1 July 2023. The full teams will be announced later this year.
AMD publishes empirical, data-driven insights informing down-the-road theorizing in management and organizations.
Chet Miller is the C.T. Bauer Professor of Organizational Studies at the University of Houston (United States). Chet has used quantitative and qualitative empirical methods as well as critical reviews and theory building to investigate cognitive diversity within senior management teams, organizational control mechanisms, and seemingly impossible organizational goals. His work has appeared in a number of journals including Academy of Management Annals, Academy of Management Journal, Academy of Management Review, Harvard Business Review, Journal of Behavioral Decision Making, Organization Science, and Strategic Management Journal. Two of his papers have earned best paper awards, one at Academy of Management Annals and the other at Academy of Management Review. His work has been highlighted for its frequent use in textbooks.
Chet has been coeditor for special issues of Academy of Management Discoveries and Academy of Management Executive. He also has served as associate editor for Academy of Management Discoveries and Academy of Management Journal, and as an editorial review board member for Academy of Management Discoveries, Academy of Management Journal, Organization Science, and Strategic Management Journal. To directly inform practice, he has worked with a number of managers, executives, and companies over the years. Teaching is very important to Chet, and he has earned teaching awards at the University of Houston, Wake Forest University (where he was previously a faculty member), and Duke University (where he has been a guest instructor). For fun, he enjoys hiking in the mountains, rafting, following drum corps competitions, and other activities with his partner in life, Laura Cardinal.
AMLE papers are empirical, conceptual, and theory-driven research about management education, management learning, and business schools.
Dirk Lindebaum is Senior Professor at Grenoble Ecole de Management (France), and a Visiting Professor at the University of Alberta School of Business (Canada). He is curious about ‘values’ as meta-theme in his research, particularly in relation to theory building, learning, technology and emotions at work. His work regularly appears in journals of international distinction, such as the Academy of Management Review, Academy of Management Learning & Education, Journal of Management Studies, Organization Studies and Human Relations. In addition, he is the author of the book 'Emancipation through Emotion Regulation' (Edward Elgar, 2017). Despite his theoretical pursuits, the practical relevance of his research is regularly recognized in news outlets, such as the Financial Times, New York Times, BBC Radio 5 Live, Wirtschaftswoche, Daily Mail, Independent, Fortune Magazine and Bloomberg Business Week. Furthermore, he has published several practitioner-focused articles in MIT Sloan Management Review, one of which has been accepted into the Honor Roll of the Responsible Research in Business and Management network as an indication that his research serves the larger good.
AMR publishes work that is conceptual, promotes theory advancement or development to significantly add to or inform new theoretical conversations.
