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.
