Abstract

Widely considered a disparate field without a well-defined paradigm, strategic management has nonetheless achieved strong institutional success. How might this lack of paradigmatic consensus be related to the field's success? We conduct an empirical study based on interview and survey data from a select group of interdisciplinary strategic management scholars and, using computer-aided text analysis, conclude that it is the nature of the field's underlying consensus that enables it to attract multiple perspectives, while still maintaining its distinctiveness.
