Thunderbird's Javidan Named among the Most Influential Organizational Behavior Authors

In recent research for its report on scholarly impact in management education, the Academy of Management Learning and Education named Thunderbird's Mansour Javidan, Ph.D. among the top .6% of the most influential authors in organizational behavior textbooks.

The research took a unique spin on investigating the impact of knowledge transfer -- focusing on its impact on the "critical management education constituency: students" rather than the typical internal "transfer between academics via journals." Javidan received this recognition out of a total of 16,289 organizational behavior authors.

The Academy of Management Learning and Education's research into scholarly impact, which focused on human resource management, strategic management and general management, along with organizational behavior, was based on 7,445 unique sources, 33,719 unique articles and book chapters, and 32,981 authors cited.

The article, In the eye of the beholder: Cross-cultural lessons in leadership from Project GLOBE, co-written by Javidan and fellow Thunderbird professor Mary Sully de Luque, Ph.D., ranked #11 in the Academy's "Top 50 Most Cited Articles and Book Chapters in Organizational Behavior Textbooks". Dr. Javidan was also named among the Top 50 most-cited authors in general management textbooks.
