Open Strategy: Current Status and Future Prospects for Research and Practice

Strategy processes are becoming more open by increasing transparency and inclusion. New ‘Open Strategy’ practices make more strategic information available and enable more internal and external stakeholders to engage in the strategic conversation. Research on Open Strategy has highlighted variability and contingencies of open practices and inherent dilemmas and dynamics. Building on a gathering body of research, this panel session provides collective insights from a diverse panel of distinguished scholars and experienced practitioners operating at the forefront of these fields. Leading senior researchers will highlight current papers, discuss the state-of-the-field and propose new research directions, opportunities and challenges related to Open Strategy research. A practitioner will share his expertise and experience in cutting edge Open Strategy design from sessions held around the world. The panel will propose key research questions and opportunities for practice in the field of Open Strategy with time allocated for Q&A.
