IPSERA Lifetime Achievement Award
The IPSERA community turned 25 years of age in 2016. The IPSERA executive committee is aware that by today a number of its members have made highly significant contributions to the academic discipline of purchasing and supply management (PSM). Therefore, the IPSERA Executive Committee would like initiate the IPSERA Lifetime Achievement Award (LAA) this year. This award honors individuals who have demonstrated thought leadership and made extraordinary contributions to the advancement of Purchasing and Supply Management as a scholarly discipline. The award recognizes contributions over the whole of a career, rather than or in addition to single contributions. Moreover, this award helps us as scholarly community define who we are because we distinguish outstanding members of our community who have demonstrated tremendous ability linking their empirical research with practitioner dialogue, consulting to firms and teaching excellence.
In order to ensure a consistent and unbiased process an awarding committee will be established each year in April/May upon initiation of the IPSERA executive board member in charge of bursaries and awards (currently Kai Foerstl). All IPSERA members are welcome to serve on the LAA committee. Once established the committee chair will reach out to all IPSERA members and ask for award nominations. The award nominations can be made from September to end of January in the consecutive year. The LAA committee has to evaluate all nominated candidates. Women and men of any age are eligible to be distinguished with this award bearing in mind that the IPSERA Lifetime Achievement Award is awarded on a merit basis.
The following non-exhaustive list of potential evaluation criteria should be considered. It is the awarding committee’s liberty to decide on additional criteria and the weights within the set of criteria.
