Panelists:

In March of this year, McKinsey Quarterly convened a group of five Chief Strategy Officers strategists, five business school professors, and five current of former leaders of McKinsey's Strategy Practice to look forward at the future of strategy. Front and center in the discussion were strategy frameworks, whose development, and perhaps application, some suggested, has dithered. The discussion, summarized in the current issue of the Quarterly which is available to conference participants, raised some interesting reflections on what has been achieved to date and opportunities for collaboration between academics and practitioners. This session, which includes key participants from the March workshop, will explore what is the value of strategy research in and for practice. The debate between leading practitioners and academics, moderated by the Editor of McKinsey Quarterly, will briefly consider retrospect, and mostly focus on the future of strategy research and its ability to shape practice.
