Call for Papers - Practice of Strategy Interest Group – SMS 2010 conference, Rome.

The submission deadline for proposals (max 7-pages in length) is: 25th February 2010. Remember to submit your proposal to the practice track: Track J.  Attached you can find the call for papers. More details about the conference can be found at: http://rome.strategicmanagement.net/index.php

Also, if you would like to help out with the reviewing process send an email at: Sotirios.Paroutis@wbs.ac.uk



The Practice of Strategy Interest Group focuses on what people actually do in all types of organizations to plan, pursue, develop and implement strategies across multiple levels. Related to this year’s conference theme, we welcome contributions that offer novel ways to study the practice of strategy aimed at taking on the complexity of cultural and institutional context, of macro-economic and political forces, and of the interdependencies with multiple social actors with which any organization needs to interact. In particular, we call for research work addressing one or more of the following questions: how does the practice of strategy differ across similar organizations in diverse cultural and institutional contexts? How and by whom are strategy problems identified and conceptualized within organizations facing high levels of diversity in the interests, characteristics and expectations of their economic, social and political counterparts? How are potential solutions under these conditions generated, evaluated, and decided on? What is the role of personal traits and psychological characteristics in shaping the way organizations plan, pursue, develop and implement strategy?
