Strategy


The Strategy SIG aims to provide a forum for discussion on the topic of strategy and strategic management, to enable members to keep in touch with contemporary debates on the topic of strategy. We organise our own events and publicise opportunities, events and knowledge about strategy, in research and teaching. We build capacity of researchers through our workshop programme, combining new research presentations with researcher training. Follow us on Twitter @BAMstrategysig.
