    Dear all,
    I hope you are well and keeping healthy!

    Each year our OSCM Division bestows a Distinguished Scholar Award to a leading global scholar in our community. This award is intended to serve a dual purpose. The first is to honor distinguished leaders in the field of operations and supply chain management scholarship. Second, the award helps define the unique position of the OSCM division at the Academy of Management within the larger field of OSCM scholars. The award has two primary criteria:
    1. to recognize commitment to serve the operations and supply chain field, both as a whole and within the Academy of Management, and
    2. to honor scholarly excellence which has helped to shape both the field's body of knowledge and practice.

    The OSCM division promotes research on important and broad problems, with a focus on empirical research that is often cross-disciplinary. The Distinguished Scholar award offers an opportunity to highlight, define and honor scholars that emphasize this focus.

    Past OSCM Distinguished Scholar awards are available here:
