Competitive Strategy Junior Faculty and Paper Development Workshop

Saturday, September 11, 2010 1:00-6:00pm


The Competitive Strategy Interest Group is offering a research focused junior faculty and paper development workshop at the 2010 Strategic Management Society meetings in Rome, Italy. Although all members of the Competitive Strategy IG are invited to participate, preference will be given to junior faculty who defended their dissertations after September 2005.

This workshop will include panel discussions and breakout sessions. Senior faculty panels will discuss critical aspects of the research and publication process, ways to craft a successful research program and future directions in competitive strategy research. A breakout session will provide opportunities for participants to discuss and receive feedback on their work in an informal setting.

The co-chairs of the faculty panel are Don Hatfield (Virginia Tech) and Christian Stadler (Bath). Five senior faculty participants (Robert Grant, Michael Leiblein, Marvin Lieberman, Will Mitchell, Henk Volberda) have agreed to come already, one more will be announced shortly.

Please note that space will be limited in order to ensure a high level of interaction among all participants. In order to participate, individuals should email one five-page abstract proposal to Christian Stadler (c.stadler@bath.ac.uk) by July 15, 2010 as attachment in a message with the header “Competitive Strategy Workshop Application”. In the body of this e-mail please include a statement committing to attend the workshop if accepted, permission to distribute submitted works to session participants, and a commitment to prepare a one-page review of other papers in your assigned breakout session.

Applicants will be informed by August 1, 2010 whether their proposal was accepted. The workshop organizers will group accepted proposals with others that are similar in topic and/or methodology and distribute them to conference participants. Prior to the workshop, participants in each group will prepare written comments and feedback on the other papers in their group. They will exchange feedback during the paper development portion of the workshop, with each group's discussion being facilitated by one or more experienced scholar(s) familiar with the topic or method in question.
