Gustavson's Liana Victorino and her colleagues Rohit Verma of Cornell University and Don G. Wardell of the University of Utah were honoured at the recent Production and Operations Management Society’s annual meeting for a paper published in the society’s Production and Operations Management journal (an FT 45 publication).

“Script Usage in Standardized and Customized Service Encounters: Implications for Perceived Service Quality”, published in 2013, was selected as the journal’s Most Influential Service Operations paper over a two-year period.  It was based on some of the work Liana completed in her dissertation research.
