We hope this e-mail finds you well. We are organizing the forthcoming special conference of the Strategic Management Society in Santiago, Chile, on March 19-21, 2015. We would like to call your attention to the conference and ask you to consider submitting your work. Please feel free to share this message with your colleagues and students.
The overall theme of the conference is “From Local Voids to Local Goods: Can Institutions Promote Competitive Advantage?” We seek to cover many issues related to how domestic firms, multinationals, business associations and governments interact to create sustainable advantage. Tarun Khanna will be a key note speaker talking about “Institutions and Strategy in Emerging Markets.” We will also have panels stimulating discussions on the foundations of strategy. For instance, Jay Barney and Margaret Peteraf will share their thoughts on the evolution and future directions of the Resource-Based View.
Other speakers include Joan Enric Ricart, Stephen Tallman, and Margarethe Wiersema, as well as distinguished academics participating in panels focused on a broad range of topics, includingJay Anand, Sharon Alvarez, Sandro Cabral, Betrand Quelin, Maria Tereza Fleury, Peter Klein, Gerry McDermott, Felipe Monteiro, Aldo Musacchio, Roberto Vassolo and Carmen Weigelt. In addition, on March 19 we will have a doctoral consortium organized by Ronaldo Parente, Christian Felzensztein and Sergio Olavarrieta.
