The award recognizes Bell's extensive career contributions to the field of operations research and management science, including innovation in teaching.

He produced more than 100 articles in scholarly and management journals and 16 books. A champion for the use of real-world cases in teaching analytics, he wrote some 150 business cases and delivered case teaching workshops, seminars, and presentations in more than 20 countries.
