An Ecosystem and a Sharing Philosophy
Chapter 3: AOM presidential speeches 1993–2018
The Academy of Management (AOM) is a global association of scholars and, directly or indirectly, it influences global scholarly practices. It is influencing institutions, the scholarly community, the message, ways of communication and the audience. AOM has a strong momentum, but the direction attributed to it is not always in line with reflections from the AOM leadership and its presidents. The chapter builds on the presidential addresses of the outgoing AOM presidents. The presidents had concerns about the development of the role of scholars and scholarly development.
