Cambridge Handbook of Open Strategy


Add your own review!

Overview

The first of its kind, this Handbook mobilizes research on an emerging phenomenon, Open Strategy. As new technologies and societal pressures have precipitated employees, business partners, shareholder groups and other stakeholders into deeper involvement in strategy, various Open Strategy initiatives now promise greater transparency and inclusion in the strategy process. Providing a wide-ranging introduction to the concept of Open Strategy and its various dimensions, the chapters of this Handbook detail key practices, discuss the roles of technology, and propose various theoretical perspectives for researching Open Strategy. Finally, this Handbook addresses the ongoing challenges and politics involved in Open Strategy. It will appeal to organization and strategy scholars, master's students in business and management, practitioners, such as consultants and strategy staff in established firms, and anyone concerned with new trends in strategy development and its implications for organizations and their members.

Reviews

'Open Strategy is a thought-provoking and even revolutionary book. The authors penetrate to the core of strategy making by asking a deceptively simple question: who can or should make strategy? Must reading for those who want to be on the front line of the newest and perhaps most controversial idea in strategy.' Kathleen M. Eisenhardt, S. W. Ascherman M. D. Professor of Strategy, Stanford University, California 'This is state-of-the-art scholarship: a book that keeps pace with swirling developments in contemporary firms, seeking to map, explore, and understand Open Strategy - the ever-inclusive and interactive making of strategy in a digital, inter-connected, and transparent world. If you know little about Open Strategy, this is the best place to start. If you do know, this is the best-informed scholarly source you will find. Editors Seidl, von Krogh and Whittington are to be congratulated for putting together such a brilliant book that breaks new research ground and offers novel insights to strategy scholars and to reflective practitioners. This book will set the agenda on strategy for the years to come.' Haridimos Tsoukas, The Columbia Ship Management Professor of Strategic Management, University of Cyprus and Distinguished Research Environment Professor of Organization Behavior, Warwick Business School 'This Handbook is a useful addition for scholars interested in how strategizing is currently enacted in organizations. The volume provides an introduction to and multiple perspectives on the growing and increasingly important phenomenon of participatory or open strategizing. Chapters include empirical material that illustrates the phenomenon and analyses from a diverse set of scholars that provide theoretical insights into issues of design and implementation.' Martha S.
