Fundamental Issues in Strategy is the product of a conference jointly sponsored by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation and the Strategic Management Society in November 1990.

The book includes contributions from Alfred Chandler, Michael Porter, Oliver Williamson, and C.K. Prahalad. It represents a coherent statement of the status and future of the field of strategic management, re-examining the theoretical roots of strategic issues in order to set a new research agenda and advance the state of the field.
