The creation of a high-quality and exciting program requires the efforts of many thoughtful and dedicated scholars.
This year over 868 volunteer reviewers provided reviews for the 620 papers and symposia submitted to our division. As a division, our goal is to provide 2 to 3 constructive and thoughtful reviews per submission. We owe our reviewers a big thank you for the large task they collectively conquered: thank you to all who reviewed!
We’d like to acknowledge the work of our Outstanding Reviewers. These reviewers received consistent praise for their constructive and developmental feedback from the authors whose work they reviewed. The TIM Division appreciates the efforts of these exceptional scholars.2022 TIM Division Outstanding Reviewers

The hundreds of papers accepted need to be grouped into interesting and coherent sessions. As the division grows, we wanted to create a process to group papers and highlight core research themes: for that, we used a combination of an algorithm + human sensibility. Thank you to Eunhee Sohn & Shibo Zhou for designing and implementing an algorithm for grouping papers into tracks. The papers were then grouped into sessions by a track chair with subject-matter expertise.Many thanks to our inaugural TIM Track Chairs:

After two years of virtual meetings, this year’s Business Meeting of the TIM Division at the Academy of Management could be held in person again. A large group of attendants was present in the conference hall of the Seattle Convention Center when Division Chair Maryann Feldman sent her words of welcome to the audience.
Maryann started by giving thanks to our outgoing Past-Chair, Rahul Kapoor, for five years of excellent service and leadership. She then moved on to thank our outgoing Representatives-at-Large: Tiona Zuzul, Henning Piezunka, Anna Maria Conti, Thomas Klueter, and Rory McDonald. Maryann stressed that the activities of the division depend crucially on the work and enthusiasm of the Reps., who organize the TIM workshops and consortia, administer awards and websites, and help with the development of the program for the annual conference (for more information see here) with some interesting panelists, and she advised all to attend. Thanks was then given our to our wonderful reviewers; of particular note was our awards to the best reviewers of 2020. Janet also thanked all the people who helped her over the year.
Maryann Feldman then provided an overview of the TIM development programs, and the various TIM reps provided detail of their responsibilities including the PDWs, the Doctoral Consortium, the Junior Faculty Consortium. Of note was the success of the Tuesdays (or Thursday!) with TIM online sessions that took place outside of the main AOM virtual conference program. She then welcomed our new incoming Program Chair-Elect, Susan K. Cohen (University of Pittsburgh), who joins the TIM five-year leadership track, including: Elena Novelli (Program Chair), Sonali Shah (Chair-Elect), Maryann Feldman (New Chair), and Janet Bercovitz (Past Division Chair). Susan is being joined by the newly elected Representatives-at-Large: Denisa Mindruta (HEC Paris), Markus Perkmann (Imperial College London), Maria Roche (Harvard Business School), Raffaele Conti (ESSEC Business School) and Nilanjana Dutt (Bocconi). Furthermore, Maryann Feldmann thanked Llewellyn Thomas (Webmaster & Treasurer, IESE Business School), Paul Hünermund (Secretary & Social Media, Copenhagen Business School), Sonali Sharp (TIM Newsletter Editor, SUNY Albany), Karen Nicholas (Conect@AOM Coordinator, Boise State University), and Gresa Latifi (Social Media Coordinator, TU Munich) for their contribution to the division.
In the following, Sonali Shah, Thomas Klueter, and Eunhee Sohn delivered the Program Report. In 2022, there were 620 submissions, which is a substantial increase compared to the previous year that reflects the return to an in-person annual meeting. The acceptance rate was comparable to the previous year, with 65% for papers and 76% for symposia. In total, 48% of submissions were coming from Europe, followed by North America with 24% and Asia with 20%. This year’s program featured 108 paper and symposia sessions and 11 division events. Of those, 79 sessions were held in person, 9 were hybrid, 25 sessions were organized as online-synchronous, and 6 as online-asynchronous. Thanks was then given to our fantastic reviewers, including 41% of first time reviewers and the 22 recipients of the TIM Division Best Reviewer Award. This year the program committee used for the first time a tailor-made algorithm to automatically group paper submissions into interesting and coherent sessions. Subsequently, a track chair with expertise in each domain grouped papers within their track into sessions of four papers.
Thanks to Eunhee Sohn and Shibo Zhou for designing and implementing this algorithm. Finally, the program committee invited everyone to attend the TIM Plenary and Social Virtual Cocktail Hour, which followed immediately after the Business Meeting.
Elena Novelli then provided an overview of the TIM development activities, and the various reps provided detail of their responsibilities, including the PDWs, the Doctoral Consortium, the Junior Faculty Consortium, and research development workshops outside of the annual meeting. We thank our TIM Research Committee members who give feedback to other scholars during virtual and in-person research workshops and provide ideas for creating new events or formats for mentoring doctoral students and junior faculty: Raffaele Conti, Emily Cox Pahnke, Douglas Hannah, Matt Marx, Pinar Ozcan, Carlos Serrano, Anu Wadhwa, Lauren, Lanahan, Tim Ott, Michael Roach, Henry Sauermann, and Valentina Tartari. In the upcoming term, the division will undergo a strategic planning process to determine new strategic priorities for 2023–2026. Members are encouraged to share their ideas with the executive team and Reps-at-Large.
