Strategic Management in Africa, a research workshop to be held in Toledo, Spain on 24th September 2014 (http://madrid.strategicmanagement.net/extensions/toledo.php).
Description of Workshop
Our extension workshop intends to serve a growing interest in studying strategic management in Africa. Since the continent as a business research setting is unique in multiple aspects, exploring strategic management questions there promises new insights and stands to reduce theoretical blind spots. The Economist for example recently remarked on the unusually high prevalence of portfolio entrepreneurship in Africa, a phenomenon not readily explained by existing theory. Social, cultural, institutional, and other factors may offer important boundary conditions for theories of strategic management and are waiting to be explored.
