Shipper, Quan Participate in Academy of Management Annual Meeting
SALISBURY, MD---Drs. Frank Shipper and Jing Quan of Salisbury University’s Franklin P. Perdue School of Business recently participated in the Academy of Management’s 74th annual meeting, “The Power of Words,” in Philadelphia.
Shipper, of the Management and Marketing Department, was part of the professional workshop panel “Translating the Results of Scholarship into Actions by Practitioners: From Scholarship to Action.” Panelists discussed ways to close the gap between research and practice, as well as strategies for using information technology — including social media — to link researchers and practitioners.
Quan, of the Information and Decision Sciences Department, presented “IT Enabled Organizational Agility and Firm Performance: Evidence from Chinese Firms” with a colleague from Sun Yat-sen University. Their research examined the enabling role of information technology based on the perspectives of resource-picking and capability-building mechanisms of rent creation, and the hierarchy of dynamic capabilities.
