Anaheim University's Provost Dr. William Hartley has helped select some of the top research papers to be presented at the largest annual gathering of management scholars in the world.
Acting as a referee for the professional association the Academy of Management, Dr. Hartley reviewed and critiqued five research papers in the fields of Human Resource Management, Strategic Management, and Management Education and Development. The papers are being considered for presentation at the Academy's annual meeting, which is expected to attract up to 6,000 people when it is held later this year from August 8 to August 13 in Anaheim, California.
Said Dr. Hartley: Research is an extremely important activity by the members of the Academy of Management since the discovery of better ways to structure and manage organizations is critical to their long term success especially in these times of international competition. All of the research papers to be presented at this meeting have been selected after careful review and critiquing from the large number submitted for consideration so they represent the very best in the field.
The Academy is a professional association for scholars dedicated to creating and disseminating knowledge about management and organizations. Founded in 1936 by two professors, the Academy today has more than 17,000 members from 104 nations.
Its annual meeting, which this year is on the theme of The Questions We Ask, provides a forum for sharing research and expertise in all management disciplines including presentations, panels, symposia, workshops, distinguished speakers, and special programs for doctoral students.
Dr. Hartley, who has been an Academy member since the 1980s, has also been invited to chair one of the presentation sessions for the Management Education and Development division at the meeting. As Chair, he will moderate the presentation and discussion of research papers in that division.
Dr. Hartley has served in various roles at Anaheim University including Vice President for Student Affairs, and he continues to teach in the MBA program. He holds a Ph.D. and M.S. in Economics from the University of Wisconsin, Madison, and an MBA from the University of California, Berkeley. His professional background is comprised of a combination of education, private sector work, teaching and consulting positions from administrative manager of the R&D division of a Fortune 500 company to the executive training program at Ford Motor Company in Detroit, Michigan, as well as owning and operating an art gallery.
