Strategy Process and Practice Research Workshop

Saturday, September 22, 2018
09:00 - 12:00 h

Paris Marriott Rive Gauche - Forum G-J

co-sponsored by Strategy Process Interest Group and Strategy Practice Interest Group

Workshop Information

Strategy Process and Strategy Practice scholars share similar interests and challenges in their research. The purpose of this workshop is to discuss the challenges of conducting and publishing studies on strategy processes and practices, providing junior faculty and PhD students with a forum to interact with senior scholars in the field and receive feedback on their projects. For this, we have gathered a group of senior scholars, including some editors and authors from the 2018 SMJ Special Issue “Strategy Processes and Practices: Dialogues and Intersections”. The panelists will share their experience and offer advice from both the editors’ and authors’ perspectives. As the panel will also explore promising topics at the intersection of strategy process and practice research, this workshop will also provide a forum for research exchanges between the Strategy Process Interest Group and Strategy Practice Interest Group members.

The workshop consists of a panel session (Part I) and a roundtable session (Part II). In Part I, a panel of editors and senior authors will discuss the challenges in conducting and publishing strategy process and practice research. In Part II, the panelists will give feedback on the projects or papers of participants in a roundtable format. In order to join Part II, the participants need to apply in advance by submitting their research proposal or paper.
