About the Book

Strategic management, the strategic use of resources to achieve organizational goals and objectives require reflection on the processes and procedures within the organization as well as external factors that may impact how the organizations function. While the current era is characterized by booming of digital transformation, the new technologies affect the dynamics and outcomes of business processes and the understanding of strategic management. In fact, there is little knowledge of strategic management in the digital transformation era and the scholars and practitioners know little about the dynamics of new technologies and their impacts on strategic decision-making process.

The upcoming Open Access Book “Strategic Management in the Age of Digital Transformation” will welcome contributions and chapter proposals consisting of novel research approaches – conceptual, empirical, case studies, surveys – from different disciplines that demonstrate a good fit with the main themes of strategic management and the digital transformation era.

The book chapters are expected to advance the current knowledge of strategic management in the digital transformation era through investigating the impacts of new technologies and identifying key drivers of strategic management development.
