SFU Business garners double exposure in Academy of Management Review

Feb 08, 2010

New research focused on human resources and organizational behaviour from SFU Business has been recognized with publication in the Academy of Management Review, one of the most prestigious journals in the management field.

The occasion is significant in that two SFU Business professors – associate professor Mila Lazarova and assistant professor Andrew Von Nordenflycht, who are part of a vibrant cohort of new scholars – have published separate articles in the journal’s January edition.

Lazarova published the article “Elucidating the Positive Side of the Work-Family Interface on International Assignments: A Model of Expatriate Work and Family Performance” with co-authors M. Westman and M.A. Shaffer.  Her work conceptualizes cognitive, affective and conative influences on expatriate work and family role performance.

Von Nordenflycht authored the article “”What is a Professional Service Firm? Toward a Theory and Taxonomy of Knowledge-Intensive Firms.” His research develops a theory of the distinctive characteristics of professional service firms and their organizational implications.

The mission of the Academy of Management Review (AMR) is to publish new theoretical insights that advance the understanding of management and organizations. AMR publishes novel, insightful and carefully crafted conceptual work that challenges conventional wisdom concerning all aspects of organizations and their roles in society.
