Two recent studies co-authored by Professor Shahzad Ansari of Cambridge Judge Business School named to Honor Roll of Responsible Research in Business & Management (RRBM).
Two recent studies co-authored by Shahzad Ansari, Professor of Strategy & Innovation at Cambridge Judge Business School, have been named to the Honor Roll of Responsible Research in Business & Management. The Honor Roll recognises research “that is both rigorous and relevant” and “offers credible insights for society”.
The latest accepted into the Honor Roll is a study published last year in the Journal of Management Studies on how an academic research project morphed into a non-profit medical platform that seeks solution for rare and chronic diseases.
The paper co-authored by Shahzad and Madeleine Rauch of Copenhagen Business School – entitled “From ‘publish or perish’ to societal impact: organizational repurposing towards responsible innovation through creating a medical platform” – looks at how “serendipitous inspiration, moral emotions and the power of socially conscious users and catalysts drove this emergent reframing of core purpose”.
Also named to the Honor Roll was another 2022 study published in the Academy of Management Journal, co-authored by Shahzad and Patricia Hein of Ivey Business School in Canada, on how disabled workers can avoid being marginalised. The study – entitled “From sheltered to included: the emancipation of disabled workers from benevolent marginalization – asks how marginalised individuals can achieve “emancipation from an infantilising identity”.
Responsible Research for Business and Management is an organisation founded by academics at business schools that is focused on “inspiring, encouraging, and supporting credible and useful research in the business and management disciplines”.
