Overview

This major reference work is distinct from many other handbooks. It provides original contributions from top strategic management scholars rather than pure research reviews or collections of previously published articles. In the original chapters provided by these outstanding strategic management scholars, major ideas and theories relating to their particular areas of expertise are presented. The contributors examine the background on their topic through their own lenses, whilst also introducing new ideas that will influence the future of research in the field.

The Handbook is structured into five sections looking at the strategic management process, the theoretical foundations of the field, various types of strategy, human factors, and teaching methods. As a whole, the volume will serve as a critical reference tool for students, scholars and professional managers.
