The PTC gives four types of Awards:
The AOM PTC Practice Impact Award seeks to recognize and celebrate an outstanding scholar who has made a major contribution to research and theory in practice based studies, and has had an outstanding impact on managerial and organizational practices. The nominee should have a track record of quality publications (journals and books), and preferably have also published in practitioner journals (e.g. Academy of Management Perspectives) and other relevant practitioner outlets, as well as have had an impact on policy making and management practice.
The PTC Research Center Impact Award aims to recognize the contribution that research centers make to the practice of management in the public, private, and/or third sectors. Research Centers must specifically demonstrate how knowledge gained through the research and programs conducted by the centers have made an impact to management practice. The PTC Research Centre Impact Award is designed to promote the AOM’s strategic intent of professional impact. The awards seeks to recognize and celebrate an outstanding research project or group of projects conducted either independently or in collaboration with industry that has had a major impact on management practice (be it in private, government, non-government sectors).
The AOM PTC Chris Argyris Lifetime Career Award identifies a person the PTC executive team believe has made a long and lasting contribution to ensuring scholarly work makes a contribution to practice. As such it is not an annual award, and so only offered as a special recognition of such people.
The D&ITC/PTC Diversity and Inclusion Best Practice Award aims to recognize exemplary diversity and inclusion practices that have achieved, or are currently achieving, notable impact on diversity and inclusion in practice, teaching, or Research Divisions. Nominees must specifically demonstrate how the practices, programs, teaching, or research conducted by the division, interest group, or committee have made notable impacts on advancing diversity and inclusion. The award is jointly given by the Diversity and Inclusion Committee and the Practice Theme Committee.
