Digital technologies such as platforms, big data analytics, and algorithms are reshaping how firms strategize. They are altering the strategy-making processes by rendering them less exclusive and secret and by making them more flexible. Digital technologies are also redefining practices of strategy-making, allowing actors to participate from afar or to utilize the wisdom of the crowd.
Building on a panel symposium on Digital Strategizing organized at the AOM 2019, this PDW aims to (1) give an overview of recent theoretical and empirical advancements in process and practice studies on digital strategizing; (2) discuss the suitability, advantages and disadvantages of selected theoretical perspectives and methods to further advance corresponding research; and (3) synthesize and share with the scholarly community the PDW outcomes to sharpen the future research agenda on the processes and practices of digital strategizing.
The PDW consists of two parts – an asynchronous and a synchronous one. In preparation of the live session, information on the perspectives that the distinguished scholars represent are provided on the AOM platform and here: https://sap.aom.org/digistrat. The perspectives are as follows:
During the real-time open session, participants have the opportunity to jointly advance the research agenda on process and practice research on digital strategizing. For this purpose, our distinguished scholars will each facilitate a roundtable before a synthesis across all perspectives is attempted.
Registration is optional but recommended to join your preferred roundtable. We also invite specific questions or topics for roundtable discussions. Please register and provide information here: https://forms.gle/dVevwywwe7btQ1ra7
