Stephen Mezias, Program Chair
Linda Dunn-Jensen and myself have worked hard to try to ensure that we will have an exciting program at the 2003 Academy of Management meetings in Seattle. Of course, we represent only the tip of the iceberg of the total work that has led to the creation of this program. Consider that 116 papers and 15 symposia were submitted for consideration by the division. One hundred and thirty-two reviewers helped us to evaluate this multitude of submissions in a vast effort spanning the globe. The list of countries represented by submitters and reviewers is long as indicated by Table 1.
1: Countries represented among submitters and reviewers
The overall quality of submissions is epitomized by the six papers that the division will have in the annual proceedings. Two of these won the division’s prizes: The best student paper was by Sandra Cha and is entitled “Hypocrisy Attribution in Organizations.” The best overall paper is by Kyle Lewis, Lynette Rylander Gillis, and Donald A. Lange and is entitled “Who Says You Can’t Take it with You? Transferring Transactive Memory Systems Across Tasks” I hope that all members of the division will join us for the exciting sessions we have planned as well as our annual business meeting. Please accept my heartfelt thanks to all of you who contributed paper, symposia, or your time for reviews.

Greetings! We have an exciting PDW program to offer this year, thanks to those who submitted ideas and who agreed to participate in this year’s activities. Representing a wide range of interests, this year’s program offers a little something for everyone. Take the time to review the brief program synopsis offered below, greater detail is provided on the AoM 2003 program website (http://apps.aomonline.org/aompd2003/default.asp), and be sure to participate in those that interest you most.
Friday evening opens a two part co-sponsored workshop with RM on Aesthetic Inquiry. Participants in this interactive workshop, which continues Saturday afternoon, will explore how they might use aesthetic approaches in their research as well as how to engage with aesthetics into organizational practices.
Saturday morning features two workshops on Organizational Identity. One session, Creating and Managing Organizational Image and Identity is designed to stimulate broad, multidisciplinary thinking and discussion with scholars, practitioners, and students – across management and social science disciplines – around creating and managing organizational image and identity. The other session, cosponsored with RM, Planning Research on Identity: Issues of Measurement and Design, has as its objective to stimulate discussion and interaction around the topic of designing and implementing research related to identity and identification at the organization and individual levels.
Saturday afternoon offers a session that will be of interest to individuals attracted to research on Entrepreneurial Cognition. Co-sponsored with ENT, Managerial and Organizational Cognition in an Entrepreneurial Context, will consist of a number of roundtables where individuals who are interested in applying theories of managerial and organizational cognition to entrepreneurial contexts can discuss their research ideas and experiences with one another. Roundtable topics will center on decision making, cross-cultural cognition, team-based cognition, and creativity and innovation. Scholars from both MOC and entrepreneurship domains will be on hand at each roundtable to get the discussions started and to lend their expertise.
Another Saturday afternoon session will focus on studying Knowledge. Addressing the Challenge of Studying Knowledge: Learning from Different Methodological Approaches, is co-sponsored with ODC, OMT and TIM and will focus on the value that different methodological approaches can have in understanding knowledge.
Sunday morning MOC once again offers Cognition in the Rough. This popular interactive session offers participants the opportunity to discuss their research ideas with scholars who share their research interests. More information on this workshop, which requires pre-registration, can be found elsewhere in this newsletter.
Constructing Knowledge: The Academy of Management as a Cultural Industry, is cosponsored with OMT, TIM and ODC, employs short presentations and lively discussion to use a cultural industry lens to examine and explore the processes involved in knowledge production connected with the annual Academy of Management meetings and how these processes shape our careers.
Last but not least, Sunday morning also brings Learning the Art and Craft of Reviewing: Learn from Some of the Best Reviewers. This session, cosponsored with MED, CM, HCM, OCIS, ONE, PNP, IM, SIM, and CAR, is geared toward doctoral students interested in becoming journal reviewers. Reviewers and journal editors will speak briefly on the art and craft of reviewing, to be followed by small group discussions centering on how to become good reviewers.
On Saturday morning (Aug 2), Academy members are invited to work alongside local executives on a service project to sort and bag food donated to Northwest Harvest as part of their annual food drive “Let’s Make Summer a Picnic for Everyone.” The local food drive will be managed in part by Seattle-area businesses, but the AOM also has a part to play. Specifically, AOM ’03 conferees are invited to bring boxed or canned food to Conference registration. Note: Customs regulations may preclude this option for international visitors. To participate in the onsite service project, please contact Barbara Parker, Local Arrangements Chair at email@example.com.
