Professorship for Strategic Management and Leadership at the Strategic Management Society Annual Conference
The Professorship for Strategic Management and Leadership participated in this year’s Strategic Management Society Annual Conference in various roles.
The Strategic Management Society’s Annual Conference was conducted virtually this year and was held under the theme „Imagination and Inspiration: Creating Strategy Breakthroughs in a Discordant World.“ The professorship contributed to the conference in various ways. Prof. Dr. Graf-Vlachy chaired a conference session on top executives’ political ideology and provided feedback to international junior scholars on their research projects in the context of a professional development workshop. Furthermore, the professorship presented two research projects at the conference. One project deals with the consequences of CEO personality for product recalls in the pharmaceutical industry, and the other explores how ingratiation of capital market analysts affects top executives’ behavior.
