Richard Whittington is a leader in the field of Strategy-as-Practice research, having published the first paper in the field (1996). The Strategy-as-Practice movement has revitalised research on strategy processes, with formally-recognised streams in such leading conferences as the Strategic Management Society, the Academy of Management, the European Group for Organizational Studies and the British Academy of Management. Richard’s own research is exploring the recent ‘opening’ of strategy, as it becomes more transparent internally and externally, and involves a widening range of people from inside and outside the organisation. For example, he has found that companies are increasingly communicating about their strategy, with significant impacts upon share prices, both negative and positive. His study has implications for current public policy debates on short-termism in business, supporting the case for more long-term strategic communications to external audiences by senior executives.
Patrick Regnér is a Professor of Strategic Management at the Stockholm School of Economics. He holds a PhD from Stockholm School of Economics and has been a visiting scholar at Rutgers Business School. His research has been published in leading journals like the Strategic Management Journal, Journal of International Business, Journal of Management Studies, Management International Review, British Journal of Management and Human Relations. Patrick’s research interests fall at the intersection of behavioral and sociological strategy perspectives with a particular focus on strategy practice. Specifically, he examines strategy practices and organizational outcomes including strategy micro-foundations and how strategy practices, individual actors, their activities and social interactions shape strategies, strategic responses to institutions and, in the end, organizational capabilities. Patrick is a member of the Editorial Boards of Journal of Management Studies, Organization Studies and Strategic Organization.
