Our DFG network member Katharina Dittrich (Warwick Business School) together with Paula Jarzabkowski (Cass Business School, City University) and Jane Lê (WHU) is organizing a sub-theme on “Strategizing for Grand Challenges” at the upcoming EGOS conference in Edinburgh in 2019 (July 4-6th). Today organizations face a variety of societal challenges that go beyond any single organization, yet these are a critical part of the strategic landscape. Indeed, managing the implications of such issues is increasingly a strategic issue for many firms. This sub-theme explores the contributions that practice-based approaches can make to understanding how organizations strategize for grand challenges. Charlotte Cloutier, Jennifer Howard-Grenville and David Seidl will be joining the sub-theme as keynote speakers. Please consider submitting your work by Monday, January 14, 2019 via the EGOS website.
