Kelley professor receives highest honor from Academy of Management

Professor Philip M. Podsakoff, the John F. Mee Chair of Management in the Kelley School of Business, was inducted into the Fellows Group at the Annual Meeting of the Academy of Management (AOM) held in August 2009. The AOM is the leading professional association for scholars dedicated to creating and disseminating knowledge about management and organizations.

Induction into the Fellows Group is the highest individual honor the academy can bestow on a member. According to its bylaws, "The purpose of the Fellows Group shall be to recognize and honor members of the Academy of Management who have made significant contributions to the science and practice of management, and to provide opportunities for fellowship and a forum for discussion among the persons so recognized and honored." Less than 1% of AOM members are accorded Fellows status.

Professor Podsakoff's research interests include leadership “substitutes,” the antecedents and consequences of organizational citizenship behaviors, and issues in field research methodologies. He has authored almost 70 articles and scholarly book chapters; and he is co-author (with IU professors Dennis Organ and Scott MacKenzie) of a recent book on organizational citizenship behavior. His research has been cited over 6,000 times in the Social Science Citation Index, and he has been recognized by the Institute for Scientific Information as one of the 15 "Most Highly Cited" authors in the Field of Management during the past 25 years. He is one of only five management scholars who have published two articles that have been cited over 1,000 times.

Professor Podsakoff is the past associate editor of the Journal of Applied Psychology (JAP), which is the most prestigious applied psychology journal in the world, and presently serves as a member of the editorial review boards of JAP, Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes, Journal of Management, and The Leadership Quarterly.

In addition to his research and writing activities, Professor Podsakoff has received over 35 teaching awards or citations at all levels (national, university, alumni, executive education, PhD, MBA, and undergraduate); and he has taught in over 400 executive education programs in the United States, Europe, South America, and Asia. As part of his executive education teaching, he served for four years as the coordinator of the leadership component of a program taught to business leaders in Hungary, Poland and the Czech Republic in the mid-1990s as these countries moved from a planned to a free economy.
