Unit profile


Strategic management concerns the mechanisms and factors that drive and explain differences in firm and organizational performance. It includes topics related to industries, markets, factor markets and not least firm-internal management processes and capabilities. Our research base is broad in scope and includes dependent variables such as conformance and performance, competitive advantage, rents, business development and growth, as well as independent variables such as resources, value chains, control, structure, decision processes, culture and competence. Research on technology, standardisation, pricing, contracting, public and corporate governance are among the topics in our research group. The corporate world is often said to be in constant flux, and our education and research programs reflect this variety. We study traditional as well as contemporary phenomena in the corporate world, and we do it with the help of established as well as emergent theories.
