|2008||Fellow Award: Awardee(s)|
|2000||Saul Gass Expository Writing Award: Winner(s) [+show more]|
The winner of the 2000 Expository Writing Award is John D.C. Little. He has published articles of exemplary expositional character for over thirty-five years. He has a gift for explaining relatively complex topics in a understandable way, in areas ranging from marketing, queuing and optimization to management practice and the use of information technology. Sometimes in single-authored papers, often in collaboration with others, his attention to clarity and style in technical and motivation content is a standard for the profession.
Although this award recognizes the quality of writing in Little’s entire corpus of over 60 published papers, we single out here some of the more exceptional ones: - "Integrated Measures of Sales, Merchandising and Distribution," International Journal of Marketing Research (1998): dealing with the process of aggregating store sales and promotion data.
To quote from this last paper "Managers analyze problems on the basis of differences or changes in situations. Scientists look for similarities or common elements".
The Award Committee unanimously agrees that the similarities and common elements of John D. C. Little’s technical writing, and its accessibility and appeal to the INFORMS readership, are deserving of recognition by receipt of this award.
