Strategic Management Society Extension - Behavioral Strategy and Microfoundations
On September 20, 2018, Loughborough University London will host the extension of Strategic Management Society Conference on Behavioral Strategy and Microfoundations, co-sponsored by the SMS Behavioural Strategy Interest Group.
Behavioural approaches to strategy have become widely used over the last decade, whilst at the same time calls for studying the microfoundations of firm behaviour have gained prominence. Behavioural strategy provides a conceptual apparatus to translate theories and findings from cognitive, social and related fields of psychology to questions on strategy. Microfoundations thinking provides the scaffold and a systematic approach to theory building to address these questions and enrich macro theories with the micro.
The extension is organised by Louise Scholes (Institute for Innovation and Entrepreneurship) and Mat Hughes (School of Business and Economics) in collaboration with Felix Arndt andPaul Hughes from De Montfort University, and Gertjan Lucas from the University of Nottingham. This one-day symposium features presenters who will discuss their current work in this area, roundtable sessions will allow for in depth discussion and future research development, and a discussant panel will look ahead to further development of this field.
