On the 26th February, 2014; 12:30-5:30 pm the Strategy as Practice Review Group hosts a meeting at Cass Business School, London (Bunhill Row campus).
SAP-R was established in 2011 by Gary Burke (Aston), Sotirios Paroutis (Warwick) and Richard Whittington (Oxford) to create a supportive and stimulating forum where scholars with a common interest in strategy-as-practice could come together to help authors develop their papers for publication and, in particular, address reviewer comments. It is not necessary to have a paper to attend. Those who attend regularly to give feedback to others have priority when they have a paper that is ready for feedback.
In February the preliminary programme is as follows:
- A lunch at 12:30; refreshments during the afternoon will also be provided.
- Two papers under-review with journal feedback (R&R or reject received) to be presented to, and discussed by, the whole group.
- Developmental round-tables to discuss working papers that are close to journal submission.
- A session on a theoretical perspective pertinent to SaP scholars: Performativity: It’s uses and abuses for strategy-as-practice research. This will be run by Cass Faculty and experts on performativity, Laure Cabantous and Jean-Pascal Gond.
If you have a suitable paper either under review for 2 above or a developmental paper for 3 above, please send details to Rebecca Bednarek (Rebecca.Bednarek.1[at]city.ac.uk) as soon as possible and by 27 January. Depending on the number of developmental papers we receive we will select papers that are most relevant to the strategy as practice theme and privilege those closest to submission.
Please indicate your interest in attending at your earliest convenience, and before the 3 February to Rebecca Bednarek to assist in planning for the event. Please be aware that we may need to limit participation numbers. All participants will be sent 3 papers (2 under review and one developmental) by 7 February. You will be expected to have read them beforehand and to be ready to offer constructive comments.
There is no fee, but you will be responsible for your own travel and drinks.
