The award, granted by the Academy of Management’s Entrepreneurship Division, was announced at the Academy’s August meeting in Atlanta.

The winning paper – entitled “Social entrepreneur strategising: making sense of conflicting demands” – was co-authored by Dr Helen Haugh of Cambridge Judge Business School and Dr Kate Sugar of the University of Bath.

“Using qualitative data gathered from social entrepreneurs we theorise four novel cognitive frames adopted when responding to conflicting demands,” the paper says. “The four frames provide a novel contribution to the strategic cognition literature by illuminating how social entrepreneurs make sense of conflicting demands when strategising.”
