Looking ahead, also in our newsletter (PDF download) we focus our attention on a key turning point in the SAP history at the Academy: moving from the status of an Interest Group to a Division. We hope you support us in applying for Division status by staying an active member of our IG, submitting your paper & symposium proposals for the Atlanta meeting and by completing the membership survey. You can find more details on the road ahead from p.2 on.
Looking back, it feels as if the AoM meeting in Atlanta was just a moment ago. In this newsletter, you will find many traces of this conference, including the announcement of the diversity and inclusion award for the outstanding efforts of our community and reflections on our second successful SAP Doctoral & Early Career Program, as well as on Denny Gioia’s keynote (from p. 12 on)
Preparing for the future, this newsletter also provides you with a collection of announcements relevant for our SAP community: we hope to encourage and energize you to respond to Calls for Papers, PDWs at the AoM meeting in Chicago as well as two SAP related tracks at EGOS. You might also be interested in the upcoming special issue in the Strategic Management Journal on strategy processes and strategy practices. Lastly, the newsletter also features emerging scholars in the SAP community.
At this point, we would like to thank the ground-breaking work of the previous newsletter team of Katharina Dittrich and Cyrus Parks!
As the new publishing team we are open to your perspectives, suggestions, contributions and critiques, so we would like to invite you all to email us your feedback.
Again, please remember to look out for the Academy’s membership survey – the more responses the better!
Violetta Splitter, Membership Secretary of the Strategizing, Activities & Practices Interest Group, Academy of Management
