Firms within the same competitive environment (industry) respond in different ways to changing environmental (competitive) conditions. The authors of this book argue that the strategy field has not found answers to the questions that flow from this observation. They answer these questions byusing what they call a "cognitively anchored theory of strategic change."
Anne Sigismund Huff and James Oran Huff are both at the University of Colorado, Boulder. Pamela Barr is at Georgia State University.
