In spite of the hurricane "Wilma", this year's Annual International Meeting of the Strategic Management Society took place in the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, FL. The theme for this year was "Strategic Management Achievements & Opportunities".


Together with my co-authors, I presented two papers there:

  • "Strategic decision-making at the firm and alliance level: An empirical study" with Franz W. Kellermanns (Mississippi State University), and
  • "Motives and outcomes of technology licensing: An exploratory study of the pharmaceutical and computer industries" with Melissa A. Schilling (New York University).
