Call for Papers - Strategy Practice Interest Group – SMS 2012 conference, Prague.


The Strategy Practice Interest Group at the Strategic Management Society is inviting contributions from all members of the IG to the annual SMS conference taking place in Prague, 7-9 October 2012.


The submission deadline for proposals (max 7-pages in length) is: 23rd February 2012. Remember to submit your proposal to the practice track: Track J.  Below you can find the call for papers. More details about the conference can be found at: http://prague.strategicmanagement.net/index.php



The Strategy Practice track aims at getting an inside view from organizations in transition. While substantial attention has been paid to strategizing within for-profit and not-for-profit organizations, little attention has been paid to understanding the challenges of strategizing undergoing transition from state ownership to corporatization, as has happened in many countries over the past decade. The process of transitioning has seen the emergence of an organizational configuration, the "parastatal," where strategists are forced to straddle between state and business management logic. Industry-level boundaries keep eroding with constantly changing roles between subjects and objects of change. Many business organizations have entered the era of temporary advantage. Specific questions expected to be probed are:


(1) What is the practice of strategizing amidst major transitions?


(2) Is there a strategy, or can strategy absence be a strategy?


(3) What are substitutes of formal strategy practices?


(4) How are ambidextrous strategic thinking and action developed?


(5) What strategy lessons—if any—can be learned from other disciplines?


We encourage fresh stories and new insights from an analysis of such transitions. In addition to academics, practitioners and strategy consultants, who have an inside view on transitions, are most welcome to submit papers.
