Anne Burmeister’s work has been honored: Her article “The Influence of Motivation, Opportunity, Ability, and Tacitness on Repatriate Knowledge Transfer” co-authored by Mila Lazarova (Simon Fraser University, Kanada) and Prof. Dr. Jürgen Deller (Leuphana University Lüneburg) will be included in the Academy of Management (AOM) Best Paper Proceedings. The paper has been handed in at the Academy of Management, was rated one of the best conference contributions of this year’s conference in Anaheim (California), and will now be published in the Best Paper Proceedings of the 2016 AOM Meeting.
The paper copes with the individual and dyadic factors influencing the process of knowledge transfer of repatriates. Based on the Ability-Motivation-Opportunity Framework from the motivation research literature, the researchers tested how the ability and the motivation of recipients and sharer influence the knowledge transfer. Their work expands current research by a new dyadic perspective, which includes the two perspectives.
