Getting to Know Each Other

Are you new to MC? How about new to the MC Community on AOM Connect?

Please introduce yourself in our Discussion Group, so we can get to know each other better.  

  • What role(s) do you usually perform? (consultant, professor, researcher, student… or some combination of these) 
  • What do you hope to get from (and give to) the MC Community?

We are glad you have chosen to join the MC Division, where scholar-practitioners are the norm and theory bumps up against organizational reality in the most interesting and generative ways!

Eric Sanders
2020 Chair, MC Division

About the MC Division

The purpose of the Management Consulting Division is to (1) advance knowledge and understanding of management consulting and (2) aid in the development of consultants from the perspectives of research, practice and teaching. The Division has a dual focus on both the process of consulting and the consulting industry, with an underlying goal of creating a bridge that integrates scholarship and practice.

Our members are concerned with interdisciplinary and integrative approaches related to established and major practice areas of consulting, ranging from strategy and human resource management to information technology. Major topics include: the consulting process, client-consultant relationships, ethical issues in consulting, the roles and responsibilities of academics in the field, the role of consultants in change initiatives, the management of consulting firms, the marketing of consulting, and the expanding role of consultants in organizations and society.

Each year during the Academy of Management meeting, the division offers a rich array of Professional Development Workshops, insightful scholarly papers and interactive symposia, and distinguished speakers – all intended to meet the needs and interests of our membership.
