Focus on Professor Ken Starkey
In 2020, Ken Starkey, Professor of Management and Organisational Learning, was honoured with the prestigious Richard Whipp Lifetime Achievement Award by the British Academy of Management (BAM).
Ken’s award was recognition for his internationally leading research within his field and his significant contribution to BAM and the wider business and management community.
Announcing the award, BAM said Ken’s involvement in the rigour-relevance debate, on the nature and importance of business schools, and his major body of substantive work spanning organisational learning, business ethics and leadership, have made an invaluable contribution to theory and practice.
“It’s a great honour to have my contribution recognised by my peers and to follow in the steps of the others who have received this award. I should also acknowledge the contribution of colleagues I have worked with over the years and how lucky I have been to have spent the majority of my career at the University of Nottingham and in a business school that has been so supportive of my research.”
I am delighted that Ken’s tremendous contribution to management research has been recognised in this way. He is the Business School’s most cited scholar and a great ambassador for the quality of the school’s research.
