Strategy and design are bodies of theory and practice that focus on taking action to achieve desired goals across a range of domains. Yet, though strategic theory and design theory are mutually complementary, they remain largely disconnected.

This seminar aims to expose you to selected major perspectives in strategic theory and design theory where relevant to strategy and management. We will explore how both perspectives can be applied to practical management and empirical research issues.

This module is intended to provide a framework, a setting, and an opportunity for MRes and PhD students to articulate or advance empirical research programmes in management and/or business that investigate issues of strategy and design.
