A Major focus of the Strategic Management Forum in 2016 will be the launch of Focus Groups (Think Tanks). Initially they will focus on specific strategic management issues. In this way we will develop an active membership that helps create, aggregate and disseminate thought leadership. Each group will also contribute to a growing body of knowledge and practice. In addition we will publish interviews with other thought leaders, run events with senior strategic management thinkers and offer courses and other learning products. Our website will service as a platform for many exclusive member benefits including forums, a members directory, job listings etc. All of these activities are consistent with our purpose which is, advancing the professional practice of strategic management.
