Using Research Centers to Foster ABC Collaboration

Track E

Date: Sunday, October 12, 2008


Time: 15:00 – 16:30

Interest Group Panel

Room: Saal 14

Session Chair:
Hugh Courtney, University of Maryland


A primary goal of the Strategic Management Society in general, and the Competitive Strategy Interest Group in particular, is to foster greater and more meaningful collaboration between academics, business practitioners and consultants (“ABCs”) as a means to improve the rigor, relevance and quality of business research and practice. Research centers, whether they are sponsored primarily by universities, consulting firms or companies, often seek to create such collaborations. But how effective are these centers and how might they become more effective in the future? In particular, how can research centers be used to formulate more meaningful research programs with results that are disseminated more widely through academic and practitioner channels and that ultimately have more positive impact on business and society? In this session, a group of senior leaders representing the best of strategic management research, consulting and practice will help us consider this crucial question and others through a moderated panel discussion and open question-and-answer session that promises to be highly interactive, insightful and provocative.
