Academy of Management Recognizes Professor Jane Dutton's Research with Two Awards

9/12/2012 --

Awards shine a light on Dutton's work and the Center for Positive Organizational Scholarship.

ANN ARBOR, Mich. — Jane Dutton, the Robert L. Kahn Distinguished University Professor of Business Administration and Psychology, received two prestigious awards from the Academy of Management.

The Scholarly Contributions to Management Award is the academy's equivalent of a lifetime achievement award. The Academy of Management is a global professional association of management faculty with more than 19,000 members.

Dutton, a faculty member at the Center for Positive Organizational Scholarship at Ross, has published more than 100 articles and book chapters, edited 12 books, and is the author of Energize your Workplace: How to Create and Sustain High-Quality Connections at Work.

Her research focuses on processes that build capabilities and strengths of employees in organizations. Dutton's work examines how high-quality connections and identity processes increase employees' and organizations' capabilities.

She also received the Distinguished Scholar Award for the Managerial and Organizational Cognition Division of the Academy of Management.

"Receiving the scholarship awards is so deeply encouraging," Dutton says. "It makes me so grateful for my terrific colleagues at Ross, The Center for Positive Organizational Scholarship, and the amazing students who are co-creators with us in helping to develop new knowledge with impact. The challenge is to set our aspirations even higher to do this work in ways that have even more impact."

In addition to Dutton's awards, the Center for Positive Organizational Scholarship was the inaugural recipient of the Academy of Management's research impact award.
