Dear Worldwide Members:
The Academy’s leadership, with input from members, engaged in strategic planning for two years (2008-2010). The Academy’s Strategic Plan was formally introduced to all of our members during the 2010 Annual Meeting in Montreal and when we launched the “Strategic Doing” phase under the leadership of the then AOM President Susan Jackson. As I start my term as President of the Academy of Management, I invite you to join me to deepen our commitment to Strategic Doing and to contribute to a stronger Academy for our members and a better world for the people we care.
Our commonly held desire to make a difference is reflected in our AOM Vision and Mission.
Our Vision: We inspire and enable a better world through our scholarship and teaching about management and organizations.
Our Mission: To build a vibrant and supportive community of scholars by markedly expanding opportunities to connect and explore ideas.
The Strategic Plan consists of 4 Areas of Strategic Intent: Internationalization, Professional Impact, State of the Profession, and Academy Management. For each area of strategic intent, we have several more specific Strategic Objectives.
To realize our vision, and achieve these objectives, we need your involvement.
The next deadline for submission of proposals is Oct 28, 2011 (see the Strategic Plan Calendar for additional review dates). I look forward to your involvement with the AOM’s Strategic Doing initiative. A most valued characteristic of AOM is the service spirit of our members. It is our members' volunteerism and care that have contributed to what AOM is today. I look forward to working with you to help build a more vibrant and supportive community of scholars dedicated to inspiring and enabling a better world. Together, we can make a difference!
Here’s how to get started:
President, Academy of Management
