Siinviidatu leidis oma koha peamiselt põhjusel, et juhatab järgnevate tekstide juurde minevikutekstide ja visiooni kaudu. Ajakirja Strategic Organization missioon – hoida strateegia ja organisatsioon ühe mütsi all -, tundub ikka enam ennast ära tasuvat, sest organisatsiooni ja strateegia eristus on ikka ainult analüütiline. Tegemist on relatsioonilise suhtega. Siin, sünnipäevanumbris, pakuvad toimetajad erinumbri ülevaate, mis pakatab tekstidest, mille vastu võiks huvi olla väga paljudel organisatsioonihuvilistel. Sestap midagi siin eraldi esile tõsta ei ole vaja. Head lugemist!

Miks loodi ajakiri Strategic Organization?

“Namely, they perceived that scholarship on strategy and scholarship on organization were becoming increasingly separate, leading to distinct journals, professional associations, and research agendas underpinned by different disciplines (economics vs sociology), and differentially dominant in different areas of the world.” (Alexy et al., 2022, p. 677)

Esialgne missioon:

“Strategic Organization’s founding mission was to support convergence at the intersection of strategy and organization, bridging disciplines, methods, perspectives, and geographies.” (Alexy et al., 2022, p. 677)

Lugemissoovitus – neid tekste tasub kindlasti uurida:

“Thus, the journal’s fifth anniversary was celebrated in 2007 with a So!apbox Issue including 11 invited essays from members of the editorial board (Baum et al., 2007), and the 10th Anniversary Issue in 2012 included 15 such essays (Coff et al., 2012), many of which have been highly cited. We follow this tradition for this 20th Anniversary Issue that includes 16 essays involving 31 authors (14 men; 17 women).” (Alexy et al., 2022, p. 678)

Lugemishuvi suurendamiseks:

“Overall, the authors of the essays included in this Anniversary Issue confirm the trends that Baum et al. (2022) cited as promising directions for the journal and the field. The awareness and emphasis on the importance of social issues as relevant to strategic organization is, however, particularly striking given the history of strategic management scholarship.” (Alexy et al., 2022, p. 680)
