ISIGrowth coordinator has been awarded during the 2016 Annual Meeting of the Academy of management held in California

During the 2016 Annual Meeting of the Academy of Management (AoM) held in Anaheim (California), Giovanni Dosi – ISIGrowth coordinator – has been awarded the ‘TIM Wiley Distinguished Scholar Award’, recognizing the broad and also very profound impact that his work on technological paradigms, evolutionary economics, corporate coherence and organizational capabilities has had on the Technology & Innovation Management Division (TIM) research domain.
TIM is a division of the Academy of Management, the world’s largest and preeminent professional association for management and organization scholars founded in 1936.
“I am very honored , this is probably the most prestigious recognition in the industrial organization and management domain, and for the first time it is awarded  to a European scholar” – says Giovanni Dosi.   “And I am even more pleased because it recognizes a perspective of analysis that focuses on the nature and evolution of  knowledge and learning of enterprises as determinants of their performance, and correspondingly resizes the excessive emphasis on the role of incentives borrowed from the dominant economic thought. I dedicate the award to all the community of economists and analysts of organizations working in an ‘evolutionary perspective’”.
The somewhat provocative talk titled “Institutions are neither Autistic Maximizers nor Flock of Birds: Self-Organization, Power and Learning in Human Organizations”, and based on a paper co-authored with Luigi Marengo e Alessandro Nuvolari, given during  the Wiley TIM Distinguished Scholar Luncheon  has been greatly appreciated by the audience.
