The strategic management field—from its inception—has recognized the close linkages among strategy (domain choices and ways to compete), corporate governance (including corporate finance) and resource allocation, with each leg of this tripod involving decisions on financial, human and knowledge capital. Heightened turbulence in the global economy has created new challenges for organizations attempting to align purposefully and efficiently their strategy, governance and resource allocation. They must systematically recombine resources and consider tools such as buffering, modularizing and strategic options thinking. Effectively aligning changes in each of the tripod dimensions is critical for achieving satisfactory or superior performance outcomes. The SMS 43rd Annual Conference calls for research contributions that support novel thinking about the tripod of strategy, governance, and resource allocation in an era of great environmental turbulence.
Our Annual Conference is made possible by the support of many volunteers, including our Volunteer Conference Support Staff! Current Ph.D. students have the opportunity to volunteer at the SMS 43rd Annual Conference in exchange for complimentary registration. Applications are due by April 14 2023.
