Abstract

Purpose

This paper aims to review the latest management developments across the globe and pinpoint practical implications from cutting-edge research and case studies.

Design/methodology/approach

This briefing is prepared by an independent writer who adds their own impartial comments and places the articles in context.

Findings

How organizations approach strategic renewal in the face of environmental scarcity rests on the adaption ethos of the top management team (TMT). Factors such as whether the TMT has an internal or external focus dictate whether the strategic renewal will be incremental or disruptive. The succession policy of an organization and the attitude toward technology have a substantial impact on strategic renewal, and a combination of these factors governs how well an organization will fare during times of market upheaval.

Practical implications

The paper provides strategic insights and practical thinking that have influenced some of the world’s leading organizations.

Originality/value

The briefing saves busy executives and researchers hours of reading time by selecting only the very best, most pertinent information and presenting it in a condensed and easy-to-digest format.
