Keynote speakers / Confirmed experts:

OS Experts



Venue: University of Zurich (Location)


Overview: This workshop aims to bring together Open Strategy scholars and practitioners to discuss ongoing and future research projects. Its program includes keynote speeches, presentations, and panel discussions. The goal of the organizers is to provide a platform to jointly discuss the future of Open Strategy research.


Workshop theme: Recent years have seen increasing initiatives involving more open strategizing. These initiatives, referred to as Open Strategy, imply greater transparency and/or inclusiveness in strategy processes. As such, Open Strategy forms part of a larger societal trend towards greater degrees of openness in all domains of life – such as Open Innovation, Open Source Software, Open Government and Open Science. By comparison with some of these domains, research on Open Strategy is still nascent. While substantial theoretical groundwork has been laid, and both qualitative and quantitative studies are appearing on an increasing basis, there remain significant opportunities for more research on what is a fast-developing and wide-ranging set of initiatives.


Submissions of extended abstract: We call for extended abstracts (about 2000 words excl. references) that fit within the general theme of the workshop. Submissions should not be previously published.
