  • STRonger Together Initiatives for May

    Dear STR Community,

    I hope this email finds you healthy and persevering! Many of you participated in our “STRonger Together” initiatives last month including Café Zoom Conversations that tackled working from home challenges, PhD Networkshops in which doctoral students on the market received in depth feedback from senior scholars in virtual breakout rooms, STR teaching resources, and our STR Photo Booth with our pet pals. Based on the overwhelming positive feedback we received, the STR Leadership Team is committed to serving our community further using the tools at our disposal during these unusual times.

    This month, STR will launch several “STRonger Together” online initiatives – specifically targeting doctoral students, junior faculty, and all of our members by international regions. Below is a quick summary and you can find details by following each link.

    Social Connections: Café Zoom Conversations offer the opportunity for our membership to get together socially online. STR members are invited to discuss challenges they face working from home, as well as share strategies that are helpful to manage disruptions and stay positive and productive, and make new friends. This month we will host a set of conversations specifically for doctoral students and another set for regional communities across the globe (Africa, Asia, Central & South America, Europe, North America, and Oceania). We have organized three 1.5-hour Café Zoom PhD Conversations rotating across time zones, and six 2-hour Café Zoom Regional Conversations in local time zones. Please register for one or more sessions, and you will receive your Zoom link upon registration.

    Research Connections:
    Coffee Wish Conversations offer the opportunity for Assistant Professors to have a one-on-one conversation with a senior scholar. With most conferences and external speaker visits being cancelled, junior faculty no longer have the opportunity to interact with senior scholars to share their ideas and get feedback on their emerging research agendas and identities. Our goal is to provide “coffee wishes” for junior faculty to make these candid conversations feasible! We have a group of senior faculty who have generously committed thirty minutes in each of the last three weeks of May for Coffee Wish Conversations. There will be three rounds of sign-ups; interested junior faculty may request a time slot and we will contact you with confirmation depending on availability. Faculty participants for May include:

    • Juan Alcacer (Harvard U)
    • Nick Argyres (Washington U)
    • Christine Beckman (U Southern California)
    • Phil Bromiley (U California – Irvine)
    • Gary Dushnitsky (LBS)
    • Caroline Flammer (Boston U)
    • Giovanni Gavetti (Dartmouth)
    • Sarah Kaplan (U Toronto)
    • Samina Karim (Northeastern U)
    • Aseem Kaul (U Minnesota)
    • Dan Levinthal (U Pennsylvania)
    • Tammy Madsen (Santa Clara U)
    • Louise Mors (Copenhagen Business School)
    • Joanne Oxley (U Toronto)
    • Francisco Polidoro (U Texas – Austin)
    • Myles Shaver (U Minnesota)
    • David Sirmon (U Washington)
    • Deepak Somaya (U Illinois – Urbana-Cham.)
    • Gabriel Szulanski (INSEAD)
    • Jim Westphal (U Michigan – Ann Arbor)
    • Margarethe Wiersema (U California – Irvine)


    STR Virtual Symposia
    offer the opportunity for our community to stay engaged with current research. At present, we have two fantastic virtual symposia scheduled, each with four paper presentations and discussants. Please register for one or more symposia, and you will receive your Zoom link upon registration.

    • Entrepreneurial State and New Economy (Tue, May 26th, 9am EDT). Organizer: Yifan Wei (U of Manitoba). Discussants: John de Figueiredo (Duke U) and Brian Silverman (U of Toronto).

    • Resource Redeployment and Employee Mobility in Corporate Strategy (Wed, June 10th, 9am EDT). Organizer: Julia Bodner (INSEAD). Discussants: Tim Folta (U of Connecticut), Will Mitchell (U of Toronto) and Andrew Shipilov (INSEAD).
    Teaching Connections: Please contribute any Strategic Management teaching content that you can share during this time (into our Online Teaching Resources Folder), useful links and advice for teaching online or using different platforms (by replying to the call for posts at Teaching Advice & Comments). Thanks to those who have already contributed including Tammy Madsen on conducting strategic analysis and Jeff Macher with tips about how to use caselets in Strategy courses. Let’s keep crowdsourcing!


    Fun Connections: Last month our STR Photo Booth provided some heartwarming smiles with pictures of colleagues and their pets. Please continue to send us your pet pal photos so that we may share them! This month we hope to stimulate your brain with STR book recommendations! Check out our website or our Twitter account for pictures of STR members with what they are currently reading. Tweet your pics with the hashtag #STRongerTogether or send a photo of you with a book (and title the photo “Your Name – Institution” and tell us the book name, author, and genre) to Paolo Aversa, our STR Communications Director. I love ANYTHING science fiction and am currently reading Exhalation by Ted Chiang – it’s a collection of thought provoking short stories. If, instead, you’re in the mood for a space action thriller then try the Expanse series by James S.A. Corey; the first book is Leviathan Wakes but be warned – this is a commitment – there are nine books in total.

    Stay tuned for more initiatives in June. Please email me directly with any questions, concerns or suggestions. As one of the wisest characters in science fiction once said…

    Live long (stay STRong) and prosper!

  • STRonger Together Initiatives for April

    Dear STR Community,

    I hope this email finds you and your loved ones healthy and well. This is an unprecedented time for all of us during the COVID-19 crisis. The STR Leadership Team recently met online for a 2 day Executive Committee meeting and top on our agenda was ways to serve our community and bring people together.

    Next week, STR will launch several “STRonger Together” online initiatives for the month of April. Below is a quick summary and you can find details by following each link.


    Social Connections: Café Zoom Conversations offer the opportunity for our membership to get together socially online. In the Working-from-Home (WFH) series in April, STR members are invited to discuss challenges they face working from home, as well as share strategies that are helpful to manage disruptions and stay positive and productive. We have six 1-hour sessions rotating across time zones, moderated by current and past STR officers; please register for one or more sessions, and you will receive your Zoom link upon registration.



    Research Connections: Networkshops are a series of online Zoom workshops for PhD students who expect to be on the job market next academic year (2020-21). Our goal is to provide a forum for these students to interact with senior faculty and peers in their relevant areas and get early feedback on their potential job market papers. The workshops will be conducted in a round table discussion format with several students and one senior discussant spending an hour talking about the students' research ideas. We have three networkshops scheduled for April.

    Teaching Connections: Please contribute any Strategic Management teaching content that you can share during this time (into our Online Teaching Resources Folder), useful links and advice for teaching online or using different platforms (by replying to the call for posts at Teaching Advice & Comments). Thanks to Drew Hess and Jennifer Knippen for organizing contributions, and to those who have already contributed including Pinar Ozcan on teaching cases online and Maciej Workiewicz with pragmatic Zoom tips. Let’s keep crowdsourcing!

    Fun Connections: During this time of social distancing it is heartwarming to see photos that bring a smile to our faces. Many of us are STRonger Together with our beloved pets. Check out the STR Photo Booth in our website homepage for pictures of STR members (including current and past leaders) with their pet pals and on our Twitter channel. Tweet your pics with the hashtag #STRongerTogether or send a photo of you with a pet pal and title the photo “Your Name – Institution – Pet Name” to Paolo Aversa, our STR Communications Director. Here's a photo of me with the "baby" of our family, Romeo!

    Stay tuned for more initiatives in May, and in the meantime, stay STRong! Please email me directly with any questions, concerns or suggestions.

    Warm regards on behalf of the STR Leadership Team,

  • STR Fall 2019 Newsletter - Part 1

    Greetings STR Division Members! 

    Welcome to the STR 2019 Fall Newsletter. Starting last spring, STR began distributing its newsletter (1) via links to the STR website, rather than as a single pdf document and (2) over a three-week period, rather than all at once. This initial section of the Newsletter focuses on calls for papers, book announcements, and other items that might be of interest to the STR membership. Links to these items are below.

     

    The links now go to the STR Community on the AOM Connect platform, which allows users to respond to the announcement posters and to interact with one another.

     

    STR Communications Director, Paolo Aversa, has graciously posted the Newsletter announcements from his own AOM Connect account. In the future, we probably will ask submitters to post directly to AOM Connect themselves, which would allow viewers to reply, ask questions, message one another, etc.

     

    In the coming weeks, please keep an eye on your inbox and the for more STR 2019 Fall Newsletter materials:

     

    • October 18: A recap of STR’s 2019 award winners, information about STR-sponsored consortia and workshops, and news from STR’s Global Representatives.

    As always, we appreciate your input. Please email (STR Division Secretary) if you have questions, thoughts, or concerns. Thank you all very much. It is our pleasure to serve you!
