Strategies in a World of Networks
The environment in which firms and other organizations operate has experienced major changes over the last few decades. The emergence of networks underlies the large transformations in business models, innovation processes, market strategies, and governance of the multiple relationships brought about by current business eco-systems. The scale and scope of these changes question the traditional notions of strategic management research and practice as we knew them, and require that organizations develop new factors for their success and survival. The 34th SMS Annual International Conference aims to address these issues by providing valuable proposals on a broader understanding about how organizations can leverage their network competitive position as they become part of larger eco-systems where boundaries are constantly reshaping.
