Lancaster Centre for Strategic Management
Both for managers themselves, and for academics who study strategic management, the topic is diverse. Strategies exist at the corporate level, at the business level and at operating levels. They have economic dimensions to them, social dimensions, ethical dimensions and the practical concerns of both developing and implementing those strategies. Strategy is not easily confined to a single perspective or to a single discipline.
The Centre brings together academics from across Lancaster University Management School who, themselves, represent this same diversity. It includes academics who are carrying out research in the following areas: service strategy; game theory and the economics of strategy; historical perspectives on strategy; strategy implementation both in relation to leadership and performance management; and top management strategic competences.
The Centre will also develop integrative research themes which cross academic disciplines. This will include strategy as practice.
