COVID-19 changed the face of live sports within a matter of weeks and months. What had been a staple source of entertainment for decades evaporated suddenly, leaving fans feeling disengaged. Sports teams have lost billions of dollars in advertising revenues because of canceled events and seasons.  Another challenge faced is keeping fans interested and loyal despite the ‘new normal’ way of life the coronavirus has imposed. Here are some ideas for teams to keep their fanbase dedicated and involved, albeit in a new way: Go back in time While many fans complain about reruns of games not fulfilling their needs, random repeats will not give them what ...

AOM this year was definitely not what we all initially anticipated. However, just as many of our habits and routines have had to change over the past few months, how we attend conferences has also changed. My friends and colleagues never tire of telling me that I tend to see the glass as half full, so – spoiler alert – this might have had an influence on this blog post. It is my pleasure to share my experience with you of this very first virtual annual meeting, and I am grateful for the opportunity to do so. So, with that in mind, I’d like to share two key things that were especially salient to me at this year’s AOM: the collegiality and the job market ...

When AOM announced that the Vancouver meetings would be canceled and the conference would move online, I started thinking about all the things I would miss. But I also began thinking about some of the possible advantages. Maybe having everything online and so easily accessible would mean that I would spend more time in sessions and less time on the street and in coffee shops, thus enhancing my organization and management theory education. Maybe going online with everybody interacting through a flatscreen would broaden the opportunity base for people who otherwise couldn’t afford to attend or, when in attendance, were often overlooked. And maybe the millions ...

It is so easy to become used to the convenience of an air conditioner in the home or office. Air conditioners make life so much more pleasant that it almost seems as if these incredible machines are just made to last without needing maintenance.  Unfortunately, a lack of maintenance and the assumption that air conditioners just keep going is one of the reasons that cause major problems. Here are other common problems that prevent your air conditioner from delivering peak performance levels. Check the air conditioner filter Air conditioner filters are one of the basic problems that prevent an air conditioner from cooling or heating properly. Luckily, ...

It is a health care issue, and of course, we need knowledge about the virus and the development of vaccines to protect ourselves. It is a pandemic, and to resolve crises, we have to build a bridge between clinical research and crisis management research (strategy). Although we have learned a lot about the virus in the last few months, the policymakers both in the public sector and private in several parts of the world do not fully utilize the knowledge gained about the virus to manage crises. Do you have any ideas on building a bridge between two?

As we continue to shift everything online, life is slowly turning into a video game. And with a virtual AOM right around the corner, what better thing to do than to pass along a few cheat codes. You know, remember when hitting Up-Down-Up-Down-Right-Right-Down got you unlimited lives on Super Mario Bros and you could impress your friends (okay, what friends…) by beating the game in under two hours? Ah, those were the days, weren’t they? Well today, as we approach our first video game (ahem, virtual) AOM conference in just a few weeks, we wanted to share a few cheat codes that we picked up by attending and organizing other virtual conferences this summer. ...

I Love OMT Meet-ups

1 person likes this.
OMT Online Meetups are an initiative launched recently by the OMT Executive Committee to help PhD students and junior scholars talk with and get advice from more senior scholars. Here’s a faculty perspective about the meetups from Robert Eberhart:   I love OMT meet-ups. Let’s face it, research is generally a lonely, lone-wolf activity. Few of us were among the popular crowd and advanced study is often tantamount to at least some social isolation. But we are social creatures who cannot know all that we need. So, as many have said, the virtues of communion with our comrades is both energizing and productive as we pursue writing the ultimate interesting ...

It ensures that the data stored by customers are safe and secure from digital threats that may be facing businesses trading in this industry.  Therefore, it is very important for businesses to clearly identify the responsibilities of each stakeholder. SO, how can you segregate the duties of the parties involved in cloud security systems? Here is how to define and efficiently segregate the responsibility of every party involved. Using the shared responsibility model Cloud computing service providers use the shared responsibility model that delegates ...

A parallel between industry and academia is that some of the greatest benefits of conferences are the serendipitous conversations taking place in the coffee queues, at the end of sessions, and over networking drinks. As a recent convert to academia, this year’s conference season was important to me as a way of broadening my professional network and ‘joining a conversation.’ (PhD students hear this expression a lot; it has taken me a while to work out what it means.) And if I’m honest, I was also hoping to use the experience to sharpen the elevator pitch for my research. So, the switch to a virtual format – while understandable and an impressive feat – was ...
