At the SMS 41st Annual Conference, the strategic management research community is poised to tackle the discordant challenges we face in strategy scholarship and practice by encouraging and facilitating the development of individual and collective imagination and inspiration. Organizations and communities face multiple discordant shocks, including climate crises, immigration barriers, technological expansions and shifts, supply chain disruptions, political realignments, trade transformations, and a global viral pandemic. To navigate this rapidly changing environment, strategy scholarship must encourage creative approaches to evaluating ways in which firms can organize, collaborate and compete. Our workshop seeks to explore these and similar topics through an interactive panel and Q&A discussion and in-depth facilitated virtual breakout room sessions that bring together a variety of perspectives across diverse strategy communities.
