His management text, Developing Management Skills, is in its third edition, and was recently adapted for the European market under the title, Developing Management Skills for Europe. This pioneering work in management skill education earned Dave and his co-author, Kim Cameron, the David Bradford Distinguished Educator Award from the Organizational Behavior Teaching Society in 1992.

In 1991, he was elected an Academy of Management Fellow, in 1994 he received the Academy’s Distinguished Service Award, and in 1996 he was elected to a five-year term as a national officer in the Academy, which culminates in the position of president in the year 2000.
