Award winning author Kim Warren presents his new book: Strategic Management Dynamics – a complete framework in the field of Strategic Management. Strategic Management Dynamics builds on, and goes substantially beyond the existing strategy textbooks with its focus on understanding and managing how organisations perform over time. Based on simple but powerful underlying principles, the book both lays out a comprehensive approach to strategy analysis, design and delivery, and connects with established frameworks in the field. In Strategic Management Dynamics Kim Warren provides a valuable teaching resource, which can be used as a core textbook to bring strategy to life. With numerous examples from different sectors, the book is supported by a rich variety of simulation–based learning materials that are essential if strategy principles are to be experienced, rather than just discussed. For those who have already learned about strategy, this book provides an important update and extension of their knowledge. Key Features: Many simulation models to demonstrate dynamics principles in strategy as well as in marketing, human–resource management, R&D, operations management and other functions ideal for class exercises and assignments. A detailed worked example built up from chapter to chapter, illustrating the key frameworks of strategy dynamics analysis. Extensive discussion of established strategy frameworks, adapted to demonstrate implications for how organisations perform over time. Numerous academic and managerial references as useful supplements in degree courses and executive education. End–of–chapter questions and exercises, supported by detailed worksheets.

As the life span of business models has shrunk, firms have had to review their strategic intent, develop strategic initiatives in fast and imaginative ways, and engage in major reorganizations to help them pursue these strategies. This book examines the dynamics of strategy that help to make sense of the changing business environment and the requisite processes of strategising and organising. The Dynamics of Strategy draws on theoretical perspectives that enable readers to describe and understand the dynamics of the firm's competitive landscape, the dynamics of the organizational landscape, and the interdependencies between both. The book combines work rooted in economics and organisational theory, and builds on interdisciplinary work using different research paradigms and methods. This range of theoretical perspectives allows an analysis of the complex and multidimensional problems of modern day business strategy.In order to help the reader to connect sound theory with the everyday context of the firm, theoretical discussion is illustrated with specific case studies and examples using firms from different industries. Written for managers and management students, The Dynamics of Strategy provides a roadmap to understand the underlying aspects of the dynamics of strategising and organising.

​Bei der Suche nach Zusammenhängen zwischen der Internationalisierung von Unternehmen und ihrem Erfolg wird zunehmend der Einfluss des Organisationalen Lernens deutlich.

Hannah Noriko Richta entwickelt auf der Basis einer Diskussion des Forschungsstandes ein geschlossenes Modell der Erfolgswirkung des Organisationalen Lernens im Rahmen der Internationalisierung und unterzieht es einem empirischen Test.

Process-related considerations in strategy research and approaches to managerial cognition constitute two highly valuable, yet still only limitedly integrated, fields of interest in strategic management. To fill this void, the work starts from a cognitive perspective with the overall aim of examining the emergence of organisational strategies in strategic processes. The central research object 'strategy' is thereby conceptualized as shared strategic orientations among an organisation's key actors. The existing gap between strategy process research and cognitive strategy research is closed on a conceptual level first by developing and specifying a socio-cognitive perspective on strategic processes. In recognition of the central importance of social interactions in this context, the focus is then set on a specific core forum for strategic activities, i. e. strategic decision making groups. In this, the nature and the role of social interactions for the developing strategy-related knowledge structures is examined first conceptually, leading to the development of a socio-cognitive model on strategic decision making in groups, followed by a qualitative empirical study in this kind of activity forum. With its truly interdisciplinary nature, the dissertation is of interest for strategy scholars as it enlarges the pool of knowledge in strategic management both content-wise and also method(olog)ically with the innovative empirical research approach adopted. For practitioners contributions are made by detailing the different dimensions of strategic processes and hence sensitizing to important factors for careful overall process designs. At the micro level, concrete suggestions are derived for composing and instructing strategy teams in such a way as to allow for efficient interchanges during the discussions themselves, as well as to enable the effectiveness of these efforts beyond the specific group context and for the performance of the wider organisation.
