Research in strategic management aims to extend theory and to inform managerial practice through projects spanning: managing strategically across borders; strategic issues arising from globalisation; strategic management in practice; capability renewal and strategic turnaround; and the non-market (political and social) context of strategy. Research is particularly strong in the areas of international strategy, non-market strategy and dynamic capabilities.
Strategy research is broad, but includes key aspects of organisation theory such as strategic decision making, strategic change and implementation and the roles of complexity and politics in the strategy process. Focused strategy research can apply to specific topics such as mergers and acquisitions or to particular sectors and and contexts such as the energy sector and developing countries. Strategy research also extends to investigating the structures and processes of top teams and Boards of Directors.
