Research Highlights: Do Founding Teams Experience Shared Passion? (Posted on behalf of Tobias Pret)  Most entrepreneurs are passionate about their ventures. Accordingly, a growing body of research explores the effects of entrepreneurial passion on enterprising individuals. Yet, although businesses are often founded by multiple entrepreneurs, we know comparatively little about how passion works in new venture teams. A recent study by Susana Santos and Melissa Cardon, titled “What's Love Got to Do With it? Team Entrepreneurial Passion and Performance in New Venture Teams” and published in Entrepreneurship Theory and Practice , sheds much needed light on ...

Having the right tools at work should be a standard nowadays, but there are a lot of companies and workplaces that fail to do so. To bring awareness to the importance of tools and work equipment, we’ve decided to highlight the immediate benefits of the employer providing workers with everything they need. The issue of safety At construction sites, for example, work cannot commence if all the right tools aren’t at the worker’s disposal. Without tools, it’s impossible to get everything done, but there are also cases of employers providing their employees with faulty tools . This creates a significant safety hazard that can jeopardize not just the ...

MSR / Europe

Greetings: The MSR / Europe regional network launched at a Zoom session on Wednesday, March 6, 2019. At that session, a key "take-away" had to do with interest in participating together in a European conference. This is both ironic and instructive. Ironic because the purpose of the session was to establish a regional network on Management, Spirituality, and Religion in Europe, but formally as part of the Academy of Management. The AOM conference is based in the U.S.: ironic! But it is also instructive of regional participants quickly expressing an organic interest in regionally-based opportunities to actually get together.  Two conferences were mentioned: EGOS ...

How To Implement Effective Pre-Employment Screening One of the toughest aspects of a business is that you can’t simply go back in time and apply all of the knowledge that you learn while running a business. While it might be tempting to look back and examine your mistakes, the truth is that business owners have to constantly be focused on the future, whether it involves improving the bottom line, expanding strategically, or staying ahead of the competition. One of the most important ways that a business can improve in terms of productivity is to hire more effectively. No business wants to constantly be rehiring and replacing employees because of their ...

Bullying is not mentioned by name in the AOM Code of Ethics . However, principles laid out in the Code make it clear that such behaviors are not appropriate. Members commit to uphold these principles when joining the association. By understanding AOM's expectations and knowing about the help available for dealing with problematic situations, we can improve our own professional ethics and serve as a resource to others. The principle of r esponsibility points to the importance of trusting relationships and the necessity of avoiding conflicts of interest that could lead to exploitation or harm. The principle of integrity states that members ...

The Internet Challenge to Publishing Ethics Saturday, Aug 11 2018 5:45PM - 7:15PM at Hyatt Regency Chicago in Plaza A Are you concerned about how the internet impacts your scholarship? Perhaps your work has been plagiarized, or components ‘lifted’ into other papers’? Maybe you’ve been getting emails encouraging your to submit to predatory journals, or offering ghost-writing opportunities? Is your university going ‘overboard’ with metrics, measuring and comparing your citations, and comparing you with your peers in ways you never anticipated? Do you feel you’ve been ‘burned’ by reviewers who seem to know who you are rather than being blind to the process? ...

"Reconsidering the Value of Covert Research: The Role of Ambiguous Consent in Participant Observation"  (Roulet, Gill, Stenger, & Gill, 2017) will be awarded best paper for 2017 by the Academy of Management Research Methods division. The study was published in the SAGE journal, Organizational Research Methods, and is open access through this link . This thought-provoking paper raises a number of questions not only about the nature of informed consent in organizational research, but also about constraints presented by the codes of ethics and guidelines researchers are compelled to follow.

The AOM Ethics Education Committee believes that dialogue is critical. As scholars, we need to identify ethical dilemmas and figure out how to study them. As students, academics, and practitioners, we need to figure out how to interpret and act on ethical principles.  In both cases we must wrestle with implications for our own professional and personal lives. We invite all members-- including new and student members-- to join us for meaningful discussions. After the conference, we will post the insights and practical strategies that emerge from these sessions. Integrity Meets Creativity: Keeping Honest in Academic Writing  PDW Workshop. Session ...
