Past Wickham Skinner Winners: Teaching Innovation Awards

The purpose of this award is to recognize impact and innovation in Production and Operations Management instruction. In their evaluation of the materials submitted, the judges give primary attention to: (1) evidence of pedagogical excellence, (2) evidence of creativity and/or innovation and (3) evidence of impact.

Past Wickham Skinner Winners: Early-Career Research Accomplishments Awards

An “Early‐Career Researcher” is defined as someone who has received a doctoral degree (or its equivalent outside of the U.S.A.) within the previous six years. Work published (or formally accepted for publication) or presented at a conference within the six‐year eligibility period is considered in the evaluation process if properly documented. The judges evaluate the impact of the body of work in terms of its ability to broaden, extend, and alter the way that POM is conceptualized, practiced, and viewed.

Past Wickham Skinner Winners: Best Papers

Papers presented at the POMS' annual conference in a given year and those under review by Production and Operations Management were eligible for this award from 2001 to 2009. However, beginning in year 2010, the award are given for the best paper published in Production and Operations Management during the previous year. Papers are judged on overall quality with careful attention given to both relevance and rigor.
