Elizabeth McCrea, Ph.D., assistant professor of management, receives the BrightElizabeth McCrea Idea Award for her publication, “Case of Insider Sabotage at Omega Engineering." McCrea collaborated with Gladys Marie Torres-Baumgarten of Kean University to publish the case study, which illustrates what can go wrong when a company is successful and grows rapidly, but does not adjust culture, policies, and procedures to fit the new conditions.

Bright Idea Awards are sponsored annually by the New Jersey Policy Research Organization (NJPRO) Foundation (the public policy affiliate of the New Jersey Business and Industry Association), New Jersey Business magazine and the Stillman School of Business. Each year, these organizations present awards for the best research published by the business faculty at New Jersey's colleges and universities.

McCrea joined the Stillman School of Business in Spring Semester 2007. She has research interests in entrepreneurship, strategic management and organizational management. She has presented at the Babson-Kaufman Entrepreneurship Research Conference and at the Eastern Academy of Management meetings. In addition, her research has appeared in the Organizational Management Journal.
McCrea received her Ph.D. from Rutgers University. She has taught courses in strategic management, marketing, product development, and business policy. Her corporate work experience includes working at Nabisco as a senior business analyst and at Bear Stearns, where she was a registered sales assistant.
