Workshop Information

The objective of this workshop is to offer an interactive session that provides insights that engage scholars throughout SMS who are (or may be) interested in publishing rigorous and impactful strategy process research. We will have five sequential panels, consisting of editors and authors of recently published strategy process papers that represent a variety of content areas and methodologies. For each of the panels, the author will briefly walk through his or her journey from submission to acceptance. Then the editor will share his or her perspective on the process from “the other side,” as well as reflect on how this paper is distinctive or similar to others they know based on their considerable editorial and publishing experience. At the end of the workshop, we will have time for Q&A with all panel participants to reflect on the publication process.


Panelists for this workshop will include: 

  • Rich Bettis, UNC Chapel Hill
  • Cynthia Devers, Texas A&M University
  • Steven Floyd, University of Massachusetts Amherst
  • Tomi Laamanen, University of St. Gallen
  • Phil Bromiley, University of California, Irvine
  • Paula Jarzabkowski, Cass Business School, City University of London
  • Shenghui Ma, University of Zurich
  • Libby Weber, University of California, Irvine
