The 2018-2022 Best Article Award was first granted for an article co-authored by Jean-François Harvey and Amy C. Edmondson (Harvard Business School). Entitled “Cross-boundary teaming for innovation: Integrating research on teams and knowledge in organizations”, this article presents an innovative theoretical model to address the challenges faced by teams comprising members from different professions or organizations.
For “Algorithms as work designers: How algorithmic management influences the design of jobs”, co-authored with Sharon K.
