SMS Workshops will be hosted on the virtual conference platform. Workshops are included in the cost of registration for the SMS 4th1 Annual Conference.
September 18, 2021 from 10:00h - 13:00h EDT
Sponsored by: Strategy Practice Interest Group
Organized by: Violetta Splitter and Christina Wawarta
Panel is open to all attendees
Application Required by August 25 to participate in the roundtable discussions
While strategy research is typically aimed at producing rigorous knowledge, its practical implications often receive less attention or they are even generally questioned – even though strategy researchers might have interesting findings to share. This workshop thus intends to critically discuss the practical relevance of (rigorous) strategy practice research and provide its participants with guideposts as to what relevant strategy practice research might look like. Participants will get insights on this matter from an academic, practitioner, as well as a consulting perspective.
The workshop consists of two parts: an interactive panel and a roundtable discussion. The objective of the panel is to examine in what way strategy practice research could be of relevance to practitioners (and consultants). The panel is followed by a more focused roundtable discussion on the practical implications of particular research projects, for which an application is required. Participants will have the opportunity to discuss the practical relevance of their research with leading academics and practitioners and to ask burning questions that they will have on the matter.
All registered conference attendees are welcome to attend the panel portion of this workshop!
An application is required to participate in the second part of the workshop (roundtables). interested scholars should submit the following materials as a single PDF through the workshop website.
For consideration, please apply by August 25, 2021.
