Cooperation is nowadays the principal strategic approach in business, argues John Child, author of the first (1998) and still leading textbook on Cooperative Strategy that is just about to published in its third edition by Oxford University Press (with David Faulkner, Stephen Tallman and Linda Hsieh). He will discuss the latest developments and trends in research and practice regarding alliances, joint ventures, networks and partnerships.
Prof. Alfred Kieser (RMI Guest Professor) who is an old friend of Prof. Child and fellow pioneer of organization theory in Europe, will introduce the speaker. Before the discussion with the audience, Prof. Dominka Latusek from Kozminski University will offer her comments from the perspective of a younger professor in the field of inter-organizational relationships.
John Child is Professor of Commerce at the University of Birmingham and has been awarded Fellowships by the British Academy, the Academy of International Business, the Academy of Management and the British Academy of Management besides numerous other awards and prizes (notably the Terry Book Award in 2009).
From his seminal work on Strategic Choice in the 1970s onwards he has been among the most influential thinkers on management and organizations with 24 books and more than 150 articles, many of them cited hundreds or thousands of times. His recent work has focused on cooperative strategy and the internationalization of SMEs.
Cooperative Strategy is one of the core areas of research and teaching at the Reinhard Mohn Institute (RMI). The RMI Distinguished Lecture is an excellent opportunity to explore with leading experts how cooperation can be better understood and used in strategy and organization.
