Behavioral strategy has evolved as a field the last decades both intellectually and institutionally. This volume brings together scholars from several generations that have led and
defined the behavioral approaches in strategy to reflect on the past, present,
and future of behavioral strategy. Thus, rather than seeking empirical
contributions that would fill in research gaps and expand research in specific
domains, we endeavored to: a) represent the diversity of perspectives that
inform behavioral research in strategic management; b) open up a space for
reflection and provocation by scholars who are widely recognized as thought
leaders both in their respective strands of behavioral strategy research, and
in the field as a whole; and c) offer a set of perspectives and directions for
the field of behavioral strategy at a pivotal moment in its evolution.
