Description: Strategic management research attempts to explain the differences in firm behaviors and outcomes by analyzing the effects of a variety of factors at multiple levels, including countries, industries, firms, teams, and individuals. This seminar is the second part of the strategic management seminar series (The first part is Business 540: Strategic Management Theory). While Business 540 focuses on seminal theory and recent theoretical approaches in the strategic management literature, this seminar focuses on phenomena and research topics in strategy research. It provides an overview of classic and current research topics including innovation and technology strategy, strategic alliances and networks, international strategy, product diversification, corporate governance, executive leadership, strategic decision processes, change and adaptation. Specific topics and phenomena will be examined from both theoretical and empirical perspectives. From the theoretical perspective, we will discuss how the various theories discussed in Business 540 are used to explain these phenomena. From the empirical perspective, we will discuss various research designs and methods used to in research on these topics. Overall, the intent of this seminar is to provide students a foundation for conducting and publishing original research in strategic management. Repeatable for Credit.
