One of the ways to measure the quality and caliber of a field is to assess how much we appreciate each other and our successes. We may differ in our beliefs regarding the importance of particular research questions or assumptions regarding the world, but to continue to accumulate knowledge and make progress in our understanding of the distinctive contributions of the strategic management field, we must also appreciate each individual's contribution. What is remarkable about this group is that we get to signal our appreciation for a set of individuals that demonstrate multiple paths to extraordinary success. Congratulations to each of these amazing scholars for their varied contributions to strategic management.
