Micro-Foundations for
Strategic Management Research:
Embracing Individuals

Microfoundations have become increasingly influential in strategic management research. The basic argument is that individuals and their interaction matter fundamentally to strategic issues. However, if a micro-foundations project is to become viable it needs to grapple with important questions of theory development, operationalization, aggregation, empirical measurement, data collection, and statistical implementation that are currently unresolved. Microfoundations have to make a substantive difference in the way we teach and research strategic management.

We are gathering a range of established scholars and practitioners and we hope that you will join them in Copenhagen. We mix specialist tracks on “strategic decision-making,” “top-management teams,” “entrepreneurship,” “strategic human resources” “methodological issues.”, with panels keynote talks to create an excellent opportunity to examine the challenges to strategic management theory, empirics and teaching represented by microfoundations. What’s more, you’ll experience Wonderful Copenhagen. Note also that the Danish Research Unit for Industrial Dynamics begins its annual conference the day after this special conference ends..
