    Dear colleagues,

    We would like to draw your attention to the AOM 2022 Panel Symposium "Practising Strategy and Entrepreneurship: Two Sides of the Same Coin?" on Monday, August 8 from 3:30pm to 5:00pm (PDT). This will be a virtual-only: Zoom "webinar" style session.

    Contemporary strategy and entrepreneurship research are typically seen as occupying distinct domains. Yet, the distinction between distinct domains blurs when considering the premise and promise of adopting practice theory to investigate what and how practices underpin and explain taken-for-granted and yet consequential actions of strategizing and entrepreneuring. This Symposium explores the intersection of the two by linking the strategizing of entrepreneurship with the entrepreneuring of strategy. The symposium discusses the potential of practice theory to examine how strategizing practices may be critical to the formation and scale up of entrepreneurial firms, and also how even large or stable firms may show entrepreneuring practices in their quests to keep their strategies relevant. We invite leading scholars in both fields to put their point of view, engage in a dialogue, and/or reflect upon the pros and cons of a joint or separate trajectory for strategy-as-practice and entrepreneurship-as-practice over time.
