NEW BAM John G. Burgoyne Memorial Prize for Management Learning

We are delighted to announce a new annual prize of £4,000 to be awarded for an outstanding contribution to management learning over a sustained period.

This award, in memory of Professor John G. Burgoyne, a Fellow of BAM who sadly passed away in April 2023  and who left a significant academic legacy in advancing management learning, aims to celebrate those making a significant and sustained contribution to the field. We thank John’s widow Trudi Wakeman, who has generously funded this new award.  

This award adopts a broad conceptualisation of management learning, covering all aspects of learning and knowing in management and organizations. This award looks to recognise research that engages in disciplinary, trans or inter-disciplinary dialogue and is open to a range of methodological and theoretical approaches.  

Importantly, this award seeks to recognise innovative, high-quality work derived from critical, imaginative and committed inquiry, that builds new ideas and developments relating to theory, pedagogy and practice. The nominated research might address local, regional, national or international and/or multi-cultural aspects of management learning; should be integrative, linking research, theory, methods and practice; and impactful, inspiring scholars within the field of management and organization, as well as policymakers and organizational practitioners.

In March of each year, a call will be issued to BAM members for nominations of BAM members whose significant and sustained contribution to management learning should be recognised by this prestigious award.

Nomination (including self-nomination) can be made by any BAM member and will include a statement outlining the case for the award, supported by a short CV. Nominations will be judged by the BAM Awards Committee in association with the co Vice-Chairs for Management Knowledge and Education (MKE).

The prize will be presented at the BAM Annual Conference that year.

The call for nominations has been sent to all BAM members so please look out for the email!
