Dual honors for global management expert

It’s a notable accomplishment to be recognized by the Academy of Management. It’s an exceptional achievement to be acknowledged by that body twice in the same year.

This summer, Northeastern University international business and strategy professor Harry Lane earned that rare double tribute.

At the annual Academy of Management conference in August, Lane received both the Academy of Management Review Decade Award and the International Management Division Outstanding Educator Award.

The Decade Award recognizes an article published in the Academy of Management Review ten years ago that has received the highest number of citations and has made a significant impact on management scholarship. This year’s honored article, which Lane coauthored, is entitled “An Organizational Learning Framework: From Intuition to Institution”; it examines how organizations can foster strategic renewal.

The Outstanding Educator Award applauds excellence and innovation in teaching international management, and recognizes the recipient’s influence on international-management pedagogy, including the development of teaching materials and methods.

“Professor Lane has exemplified all these criteria throughout his years of teaching global strategy and organizational renewal and change,” says Thomas E. Moore, dean of Northeastern’s College of Business Administration (CBA).

For the past ten years, Lane has been the Darla and Frederick Brodsky Trustee Professor in Global Business. He also directs the Institute for Global Innovation Management (IGIM), an interdisciplinary research institute at Northeastern.

Recognizing that the fastest way to unlock an organization’s power is through innovation, CBA, in collaboration with the School of Law and the Center for Labor Market Studies, established IGIM to develop effective approaches to and solutions for global innovation management.

The institute also creates and disseminates teaching materials related to the global challenges facing technology-intensive companies.
