5.20.11  Recognition from a number of places this week:

Steve Gove, Mike Hitt, and I received the 2011 Sage Publications/Robert McDonald Advancement of Organizational Research Methodology award for our two papers on construct measurement which appeared in Strategic Management Journal in 2005.  Click here and here for the article reprints.

Separately, I have been elected as the incoming Program Chair for the Research Methods Division of the Academy of Management.  The RMD website is here.

5.19.11  How can strategic management researchers design better studies?  That question is the focus of our article "Contingency hypotheses in strategic management: Use, disuse, or misuse?", recently accepted for publication in the 2012 Journal of Management annual review issue.  We conducted a content analysis of all empirical articles published in SMJ over a thirty year window to assess how researchers have applied contingency thinking to hypothesis development.  Coauthors are Kati Haynes, Mike Hitt, Don Bergh, and Dave Ketchen.  Click here for a pre-print copy of the article.

5.16.11 My coauthor Marta Geletkanycz and I are interviewed in the Globe and Mail, a Canadian newspaper, regarding our recent study on the performance implications of CEO outside directorships.  Click here for a page image of the article.  Previously, I've been interviewed in a number of media outlets, including the Chicago Tribune and Asian edition of the Wall Street Journal, as well as the more widely read Southwest Airlines inflight managazine Spirit.

12.22.10  I've been reappointed for a third term on the Editorial Board of Management & Organization ReviewClick here for the journal's home page.

12.01.10  I am giving two seminars at Bocconi University in Milan.  Powerpoint files are available below:

10.31.10  Lots of presentations on the schedule for 2011:

9.15.10  How important is it that top managers concur on the strategic priorities of their firms?  A new article forthcoming in Journal of Management by Javier Gonzalez-Benito (University de Salamanca – Spain), Herman Aguinis (Indiana University), Brian Boyd, and Isabel Suarez- Gonzalez (University de Salamanca – Spain) titled ‘Coming to consensus on strategic consensus’ explores this issue.  The article, based on data from European manufacturing firms, found that two types of consensus were associated with higher performance: Agreement on competitive methods (e.g., strategies), and agreement on competitive outcomes (e.g., goals).  Additionally, firms needed to agree on strategies first, and focus on outcomes second in order to maximize performance.  Finally, in highly turbulent environments, firms that took the time to reach consensus performed more poorly.  Click here for a pre-print copy of the paper.

8.18.10  The editorial team at Journal of Management is awesome!  I've got a special issue coming out on the micro -- macro divide, with Herman Aguinis, Chuck Pierce, and Jeremy Short as Co-Editors.  JOM bundled the entire special together in .pdf format, and distributed free copies on a thumb drive at the Academy of Management meeting.  Sage is working on making the table of contents available online, with live links to each of the articles.

8.15.10  My presentation schedule for the Strategic Management Society meeting in Rome:

6.12.10  The Oxford Business Group Handbook is now available for purchase.  Bob Hoskisson and I have a chapter on governance issues as they relate to groups.  You can order a copy of the book here:

http://ukcatalogue.oup.com/product/9780199552863.do

6.8.10  Here is my presentation schedule for the Academy of Management meeting in Montreal:

 4.17.10  I've got a panel discussion on the program at the SMS meeting in Rome on the intersection of research methods and publishing.  Topics will include structural modeling, construct measurement, interaction, limited dependent variables, and longitudinal designs.  With a mix of micro and macro experts, and all three editors to date of Organizational Research Methods, it should be an excellent session.  Click here for more details on panelists and presentation topics.

4.14.10  Our paper “Antecedents of interlocking directorships within business groups” (with Fabio Zona & Kati Haynes) nominated for Best Conference Paper Award, 2010 Strategic Management Society Annual International Conference, Rome, Italy.  This is my sixth best paper nomination for the SMS conference.  Kati is an alum of both the W. P. Carey MBA and our doctoral program.

4.7.10 The paper 'Dimensions of CEO -- board relations is forthcoming in Journal of Management Studies.  My coauthors are Kati Haynes (Mays B-School at Texas A&M), and Fabio Zona (Bocconi University in Milan).  Click here for a pre-print copy of the manuscript.

2.15.15 I am now on the Advisory Board for the Center for the Advancement of Research Methods and Analysis. Click here for the CARMA website.

2.10.10  Should CEOs serve on the boards of other firms?  Groups such as the Business Roundtable and National Association of Corporate Directors have recommended against this practice, and many large, public firms impose formal restrictions on outside board seats.  In a forthcoming Academy of Management Journal article with Marta Geletkanycz (Boston College), we found no overall negative effects when CEOs take on additional directorships.  More importantly, we report that CEO ties are associated with superior firm performance in certain market structures and specific diversification strategies.  The paper is titled 'CEO outside directorships and firm performance: A reconciliation of agency and embeddedness views.'  Click here for a pre-print copy.

10.12.09  I received my second 'Outstanding Editorial Board Member' award from Strategic Management Journal.

10.08.09  Don Bergh, Dave Ketchen, Julie Bergh and I have an article forthcoming in Journal of Management titled 'New frontiers of the reputation -- performance relationship'.  Click here for a copy of the manuscript.
