2021 CK Prahalad Award for Scholarly Impact on Practice Webinar: Impact? What's That?
October 28, 2021 at 10:00 AM EDT (UTC -4)  on Zoom  

Donald C. Hambrick, recipient of the 2021 CK Prahalad Award for Scholarly Impact on Practice, presents this webinar. Suffering from those “no impact blues”? As strategy scholars, we want to make a difference – for organizations, executives, stakeholders and society. But sometimes that feels hard, even out of reach. In this webinar, moderated by Andreas König, Don Hambrick will talk about the impact you’re already having and how you can have even more. If you have questions for Don, submit them as part of your registration. We plan to reserve time for Don to address them during the session.

December 2, 2020 - SMS Educational Impact Award and CK Prahalad Award Webinar: Crafting, Studying, and Teaching Strategy in a Volatile World

As scholars and educators in strategic management, we subscribe to the central principle of forward-looking decision making to access future opportunities. Today, we live in a world beset by unusual volatility—the worst pandemic in a century, the steepest economic decline since the Great Depression, a racial reckoning unlike anything since the 1960s, a collapse of the political center in democracies around the world, and an unprecedented threat to climate stability. What does today’s volatility imply for strategy practice, research, and teaching? In this panel, moderated by Aks Zaheer, 2020 SMS award recipients Harbir Singh and Jan Rivkin had a conversation with the audience centered on questions like:

  • How does extreme volatility change the nature and importance of company strategy?
  • What new opportunities and challenges arise now for strategy research, especially for scholars who interact closely with practicing strategists?
  • In light of today’s volatility, do we need to adjust, or perhaps even overhaul, the content of what we teach in our strategy courses?
  • From the sudden, forced shift to remote teaching, what are we learning about the process of teaching strategy?
  • What are some new domains for research and questions that can drive new thinking about creation of competitive advantage in today’s volatile times?

Harbir and Jan received, respectively, the CK Prahalad Award for Scholarly Impact on Practice and the SMS Educational Impact Award.

Hosted on December 2, 2020 for all 2020 and 2021 Members of the Strategic Management Society.
