Call for proposals: SMS Teaching Community

(Apologies for cross-posting)



Dear everyone,

As you may know, the Strategic Management Society (SMS) will be hosting their 34th Annual International Conference in Madrid (20-23Sept 2014) with a theme of “Strategies in a World of Networks  


The Teaching Community of the Strategic Management Society  

( ) would like to encourage you to submit your best paper proposals (only 7-pages max., inclusive of Reference, Tables and Figures) before the deadline of 27th February 2014.

Our Community was established five (5) years ago and has gained prominence catering for the scholarship of Teaching & Learning needs of our members across the entire spectrum of strategy, strategizing and strategic management.

This year’s conference theme requires us to reexamine our current taken-for-granted assumptions about a world that is constantly being (re-)defined and where a firm’s competitive advantage is temporary at best. Given these challenges, our students need to learn more, faster, and differently than before. If this is the case, what competencies should we be (de-)emphasizing in our scholarship of teaching and learning? Is there a better way of embracing technology? Which core assumptions must be put to the test and what new ones must we engage and foster in our classrooms? Inevitably, as educators, how can we better qualify our students for a complicated world? These are some of the issues our Teaching Community IG plans to address at the conference. We welcome contributions from our key stakeholders (academics, business executives, and consultants) to submit high-quality proposals addressing the conference theme. In particular, we are very interested, in receiving proposals that challenge conventional wisdom, provide a fresh perspective, and open up new ways of thinking and educating about strategy, strategizing, and strategic management.

We look forward to putting together a great program for you in Madrid!

Here’s wishing you all a great New Year in the Year of the HORSE!

See you in Madrid!



Robert Wright, Program Chair
