Strategists and strategy researchers are working in complex settings. Western economies can no longer assume a future comprising uninterrupted growth, global issues such as climate change and sustainability require “joined-up” thinking and social media now enable wider participation in decisions. This SMS Special Conference will focus on complex, multi-stakeholder settings which feature high levels of ambiguity, non-linearity, uncertainty and interdependence. Our purpose with this conference is to ask whether new approaches to strategy and strategic management are required to deal with such settings.
We are gathering a range of established scholars and practitioners and we hope that you will join them in Glasgow. Using a mix of specialist tracks, integrative sessions, as well as panels and plenaries with outstanding speakers, we aim to create an excellent opportunity to examine the challenges of strategy in complex settings. What’s more, you’ll experience some traditional Scottish hospitality.
