Elizabeth McCrea, Ph.D., assistant professor of management, receives
the Bright 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.
