JStrategic management associate professor Frank Rothaermel recently won the Best Paper Prize at the second annual Israel Strategy Conference for the study “Ambidexterity and Innovative Performance: The Role of Intellectual Human Capital and Strategic Alliances.”
Rothaermel co-authored the paper with Drew Hess, an assistant professor of business strategy at the University of Virginia who earned his management PhD from Georgia Tech in 2008. Rothaermel and Hess received plaques and a $1,000 award at the end of the conference, held in Tel Aviv, Israel.
Of 72 submitted paper proposals, five were nominated as finalists. Reviewers judged the papers on their innovativeness, contributions to the field of strategic management, and rigor of the research analysis, design, methodology, and presentation.
