    Sandip Bisui (U of Colorado), Sukhun Kang (London Business School), and Sohyun Park (U of Minnesota) cordially invite you to attend the upcoming presenter symposium on "Strategy and Innovation in the Healthcare and Pharmaceutical Industries" at the Academy of Management Annual Meeting 2022 in Seattle, WA.



    The purpose of this symposium is to foster and accelerate scholarly conversations around the strategy and innovation in the biopharmaceutical and healthcare sectors. Our goals involve not only highlighting the importance of these sectors, but also contributing to the emergence of new ideas and research agenda in the sectors, especially in light of recent events including Covid-19. We bring together a great set of five working papers and two senior scholars as discussants, who all study important theoretical issues and emerging phenomena in the biopharma and healthcare sectors. We have organized this presenter symposium with three goals in mind. First, to provide and motivate the importance of these sectors as important empirical settings for strategy and management scholars. Second, to provide a brief overview of the strategy literature in which scholars have grounded their studies in these settings. We especially would like to highlight the theoretical insights from studies ranging from the management of innovation to the relationships between incumbents and entrepreneurial firms. Lastly, to introduce the working papers that use these settings that shed light on the direction and trajectory of the literature.
