As the life span of business models has shrunk, firms have had to review their strategic intent, develop strategic initiatives in fast and imaginative ways, and engage in major reorganizations to help them pursue these strategies. This book examines the dynamics of strategy that help to makesense of the changing business environment and the requisite processes of strategizing and organizing. The Dynamics of Strategy draws on theoretical perspectives that enable readers to describe and understand the dynamics of the firm's competitive landscape, the dynamics of the organizational landscape, and the interdependencies between both. The book combines work rooted in economics andorganizational theory, and builds on interdisciplinary work using different research paradigms and methods. This range of theoretical perspectives allows an analysis of the complex and multidimensional problems of modern day business strategy.In order to help the reader to connect sound theory with the everyday context of the firm, theoretical discussion is illustrated with specific case studies and examples using firms from different industries.
