Ryan Krause, associate professor of strategy in the Neeley School of Business at Texas Christian University, is the 2020 recipient of the SMS Emerging Scholar Award. On November 17, Dr. Krause co-hosted a webinar on the topic of “Becoming a Scholar” with his dissertation chair, Arizona State University professor Matthew Semadeni. The two discussed the process of beginning a research partnership and developing a scholarly identity and voice. They reflected on their own experience breaking new ground in the strategic leadership and governance domain, and how they have managed the course of their research activities. Participants were invited to join in the conversation to share their own experiences and ask questions of the speakers.

Today, we live in a world beset by unusual volatility—the worst pandemic in a century, the steepest economic decline since the Great Depression, a racial reckoning unlike anything since the 1960s, a collapse of the political center in democracies around the world, and an unprecedented threat to climate stability. What does today’s volatility imply for strategy practice, research, and teaching? In this panel, moderated by Aks Zaheer, 2020 SMS award recipients Harbir Singh and Jan Rivkin had a conversation with the audience centered on questions like:
Harbir and Jan received, respectively, the CK Prahalad Distinguished Scholar Practitioner Award and the SMS Educational Impact Award.
