Competitive Strategy Junior Faculty and Paper Development Workshop

Saturday, September 20th
9:00 - 16:00

The Competitive Strategy Interest Group (IG) is pleased to offer a research focused junior faculty and paper development workshop at the 2014 Strategic Management Society meetings in Madrid, Spain. 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 2009.

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, future directions in competitive strategy research, and other questions of concern for junior faculty. A breakout session will provide opportunities for participants to discuss and receive feedback on their paper in an informal setting.

The workshop organizers will group 3-5 papers that are similar in topic and/or methodology and distribute them to the 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 senior scholar(s) familiar with the topic or method in question.

Please note that to ensure high quality of interaction, space will be limited.
