At the SMS 40th Annual Conference, the strategic management research community is poised to take stock of the changes from the last two decades of the digital revolution and then consider what the future holds and how firms can cope with a disrupted and disruptive world. As firms navigate their fast-changing environments, strategy scholarship has come to pay growing attention to the new ways in which firms organize, collaborate, and compete to achieve sustainable competitive advantage, as well as how entrepreneurial entrants with novel business models disrupt traditional notions of competitive advantage. Critical questions in this space include (but are not limited to):
Our workshop seeks to explore these and similar questions through a virtual interactive discussion and in-depth breakout sessions that bring together a variety of perspectives across diverse strategy communities. This virtual workshop will include both panel discussions and breakout sessions. For the panel portion, faculty panelists will briefly discuss the state of the field and new research directions. The panel will also address opportunities for publishing research on these issues in top-tier management journals. The second portion of the session will involve virtual breakout session(s) where participants can gain personalized feedback on their research from faculty panelists.
SMS Workshops will be hosted on the virtual conference platform. Workshops are included in the cost of registration for the SMS 40th Annual Conference.
