Professor Deborah Strumsky (Georgraphy and Earth Sciences and Public Policy) is the winner in this year’s INFORMS Technology Management Best Paper Competition, and more specifically, on her paper, “Mobility, Skills, and the Michigan Non-Compete Experiment” being selected as the best paper published in 2009 at Management Science.
With the help of these Editors, the INFORMS Technology Management Section leadership chose a system in which the best papers for the annual competition would be narrowed down for the competition to the top-six papers by citation from five years earlier (this year 2009). The top paper and a runner-up were then be selected by a panel of senior leaders in the field of Technology Management.
This year, after narrowing down the papers to those with top citations, Moren Levesque, Abbie Griffin, and Glen Schmidt served on the best paper selection panel. The winners were as follows:
*Marx, M., D. Strumsky and L. Fleming. June 2009. Mobility, Skills, and the Michigan Non-Compete Experiment. Management Science 55(6), pp. 875–889.
* Andriopoulos, C. and M.W. Lewis. July–August 2009. Exploitation-Exploration Tensions and Organizational Ambidexterity: Managing Paradoxes of Innovation. Organization Science 20(4), pp. 696–717
