Stakeholder Strategy Paper Development Workshop

Sponsored by: Stakeholder Strategy Interest Group
Application Required to participate in Roundtables

As firms navigate an increasingly polarized sociopolitical environment, strategy scholarship has come to pay growing attention to the ways in which firms engage with diverse stakeholders to achieve a sustainable competitive advantage. This research draws attention to firms' competitive and cooperative relationships with hitherto 'out of the spotlight' actors, studying how firms partner with a wide range of private and public actors to create and capture value. Key questions in this space include (but are not limited to): which stakeholders do firms build relationships with? How are these relationships governed? What are the sources of value creation from these relationships? How are these relationships shaped by the prevailing institutional environment? How do they complement or substitute firm strategies? And what are the performance implications of these relationships for firms, the stakeholders they engage with, and society at large?   Our workshop seeks to explore these and similar questions through an interactive discussion that brings together a variety of perspectives across diverse strategy communities.   

This workshop will include panel discussions and breakout sessions. For the panel portion, faculty panelists will briefly discuss the state of the field and new research directions. Additionally, the panel will address opportunities for publishing research on these issues in top-tier management journals. The second portion of the session will involve breakout session(s) where participants can gain personalized feedback on their research from faculty panelists.
