It is a great honor for me to receive the Outstanding Reviewer Award of the Academy of Management’s Strategic Management Division (STR). The Outstanding Reviewer Award is given to a small group of researchers (top 5% or less of reviewers) who provided the highest-quality, i.e., most extensive and constructive, reviews of competitive paper and symposium submissions for the STR Division’s program as part of the Academy of Management’s annual meeting.

The Annual Meeting of the Academy of Management is one of the most important international conferences for management scholars. With approximately 5,200 members, the STR Division is one of the largest divisions of the Academy of Management. Members of the STR Division address various research questions in the broad field of Strategic Management, including corporate strategy, economics of strategy; innovation and strategic renewal; strategic formulation, implementation and planning; as well as alliances, networks, M&A and other inter- or intra-organizational relationships.
