SMS University of Miami Conference Extension:  “Co-opetition, Co-evolution and Global Strategy”


The University of Miami proudly invites you to attend the Strategic Management Society’s Conference Extension on Wednesday, November 9, 2011.  The University of Miami Conference Extension will present a panel of global scholars who will shed light on emerging issues and future research on co-opetition and co-evolution in the field of global strategy.  Two noteworthy phenomena and philosophies in global business that are emerging today are co-opetition, that is, simultaneous competition and cooperation between international firms and their global rivals, foreign governments, alliance partners, channel members, and even corporate members, and co-evolution, that is, organizational and environmental changes in a global environment occur in a simultaneous and interactive manner. This Extension aims to promote dialogue with and among some leading scholars in the field on some specific issues pertaining to co-opetition and co-evolution, such as cooperation with global rivals, co-evolving business-government ties, multinationals’ co-opetition and co-evolution practices, processes and outcomes, co-opetition and co-evolution between foreign and domestic businesses, among others.
