The statement is looking for folks to help with interviews.  But, the state shows as published?  is this work complete? It sounds interesting.

Pardon a question from the new guy in the center ;-)

Hi Jim, 

This project proposal was presented in AOM 2015 (the conference for management) last year in Vancouver and received much encouragement from the section chair. This project is viewed by the track chair at AOM to be an ideal project for SAS UoPX given its strength in qualitative research, appropriate demographics and the mass doctoral candidates we have. The chair has encouraged us (me presenting it) to begin with a book collecting cases and cases of interviews on this topic. This happened in August 2015. I have been looking for project leader to kick this off, will you accept the invitation to be the project manager for this and form a work group with doctoral students alumni faculty etc?

Dr. Sussan,

I would be happy work on this project. Can you send me a copy of the proposal and I can begin to gather members for a team for the research from members within the Phoenix Connect community.

Thanks Jim! Will send file.

A project leader is crucial.
