- Academy of Management Discoveries introduces a Practitioner Commentary feature. Consistent with Academy of Management Discoveries (AMD)’s “I will” pledge (by previous editor Peter Bamberger and the current editor Kevin Rockmann commits to this pledge also) from the 2019 RRBM Rotterdam conference, AMD has now released their first practitioner commentary. This commentary addresses the question “Wondering about the real-world impact of this research?” and takes the form of a conversation between the authors and a key stakeholder. The inaugural practitioner commentary is part of the special issue on Digital Transformation, where authors Simon Schafheitle and Isabel Ebert speak with Dr. Sarah Zelt from SAP (People Analytics) about the implications of their research teams’ work on datafication technologies on organizational control. In addition to the practitioner commentary, AMD has also augmented their longstanding author’s voice feature so that every article we publish has the authors answering the question, “What is the social relevance of your research?”.
