Strategy as Practice International Network (SAP-IN) is a community of 8 Institutional Members and more than 2000 affiliated scholars and practitioners interested in the practice of strategy. As scholars we are interested in a broad spectrum of issues concerned with the making and doing of strategy and strategic change in organisations.
What we are agreed on is the importance of a focus on the processes and practices constituting the everyday activities of organizational life and relating to strategic outcomes, if we are to move our field forward.
If you would like to learn more about SAP-IN research please visit our Research Agenda.
The website of this community is designed to further disseminate SAP-IN research and to provide up-to-date information about practice related research and events. It also offers a platform for affiliates to raise questions, share ideas, and solve problems through interacting with the SAP-IN research community.
We would like to invite you to join this Forum and explore SAP-IN in a journey through our platform or by browsing up to date Working Papers contributing to the growing field of SAP-IN. You can contribute to discussions by posting your own questions or ideas to the Forum or by submitting a working paper for publication. In addition, you may want to look for one, or all five special issues focusing on Strategy as Practice research and many journal articles within SAP-IN in the Bibliography. This site also provides general News and information about Workshops and symposia alongside standard Conference tracks at the Academy of Management (AOM), British Academy of Management (BAM), European Group for Organization Studies (EGOS) and Strategic Management Society (SMS) where cutting edge practice related research is discussed.
