The Strategic Management Forum offers initiatives related to our purpose. They reflect the interests of our members and address major issues and challenges facing businesses and organisations of all types and in all sectors.
Each initiative approaches the topic from a practical perspective and includes research based conferences, dialogues, video interviews, podcasts, books, articles etc. All topics are also addressed from a global perspective, but local branches of the forum may also explore the issues in a local context.
Most initiatives are also supported by dedicated LinkedIn groups.
