This Virtual Organization Management
Research Sabbatical Program is open to mid-career faculty of universities and 4-year colleges and to industry
executives worldwide who have been granted a paid research sabbatical leave; to recent Ph.D.s or Postdocs;
and to Ph.D. program students pursuing dissertation with at least 1 year remaining.
We offer research sabbatical fellowships to
both Ph.D. program students pursuing dissertation and to Postdocs for whom financial assistance from their home institution
is available only part of the year; and to recent Ph.D.s who seek to pursue a career in virtual organization management
and require financial assistance. The fellowship's tenure is for the full academic year (September-June). The stipend for the Research Sabbatical Fellowship is $30,000 to $50,000 and based on the decision of our committee.
We assemble a working group to conduct case studies on a
select number of International Circle Member companies in order to address, , complex instances of "what is happening and why" in a member's organization.
The working group's study is carried out over a period of 12 months and the results of the group's learning,
experience, and valuable insights will be made available online to all Executive and International
Circle members. The participation fee per senior company executive, excluding Research Sabbatical members, is $15,000 and includes the cost of
administering the program and producing the research. Selection is limited to a very small number
of international circle numbers per year and is based on the decision of our research committee and
Executive and International Circle Members obtain
access to surveys, document libraries, white papers, blogs, and research reports on virtual organization
management and virtual organization recruitment. Access member databases, create your own database and
private contact group, participate in virtual forums, conduct polls, network with your peers.
