This Interest Group focuses on questions concerning firms and their interactions within product and factor markets over time. For example, what are the dimensions and drivers of business performance? How do businesses interact with one another and with their environment? What is the nature and effect of these interactions? What is competitive advantage? How can firms build and maintain a competitive advantage in a changing world? What role do resources and capabilities play in shaping firms and industries over time? How do groups and clusters of firms arise and what are their effects?
The CSIG had an exciting event at the business meeting this year: two prominent senior scholars – Brian Silverma (Toronto), co-editor at SMJ, and Karin Hoisl (University of Manheim), AE at SMJ – joined us to lead a discussion on Competition in Strategy research. During the session, they discussed issues such as: (a) What is the role of competition in strategy research? (b) Is this role changing in contemporary strategy research? If so, how and why? (c) What are the future directions in strategy research incorporating the study of competition? During the business meeting, winners of two new awards were announced: (a) Best Proposal Award for Creativity in Research, CSIG 2021; and (b) Best Proposal Award for Rigor in Research, CSIG 2021. We also announced the names of the recipients for the Best Reviewer Awards. Finally, leaders of the IG gave an update about the pre-conference and conference program for SMS Virtual Toronto 2021. The session was recorded and you can access the video below.
