It was first presented in 1998 to Peter Drucker and has been given to Chris Argyris, Edgar Schein, Warren Bennis, Ed Lawler, Henry Mintzberg, Don Kirkpatrick, Howard Gardner and Christopher Handy in the years since.

"This is a very elite group of thought leaders," said Ron Bendersky, executive director of executive education at Ross. "Dave's Lifetime Achievement Award is very special."

Ulrich, who directs the Human Resource Executive Program at the Ross School, has taught at Michigan since 1988. He also is a partner and co-founder of The RBL Group, a consulting firm based in Provo, Utah.

He has consulted and done research with more than half of the Fortune 200 companies. His research focuses on how organizations build capabilities of speed, learning, collaboration, accountability, talent and leadership through leveraging human capital. He has helped generate multiple award-winning databases that assess alignment between strategies, human resource practices and HR competencies.
