This collection of studies presents a unique snapshot of the cutting-edge research being undertaken by Italian scholars of Strategy and Organization. Building on the rich network tradition in Italy, these studies address topics as varied as search and knowledge, innovation, and technology adaptation. Highlighting the importance of research forums such as the Second Tuesday Initiative, each chapter demonstrates a freshness of perspective that’s sadly becoming rare in our journals. Well worth a read!

Received submissions are carefully scrutinized based on these criteria. This book features selected papers from ST Seminars, aimed at advancing our understanding of major management issues from a strategic and/or organizational perspective.
