The area of corporate strategy and business policy encompasses how organizations manage resources, risk, and return with the objective of making a business successful in the long term. The Corporate Strategy and Business Policy Research Network on SSRN is an open access preprint server that provides a venue for authors to showcase their research papers in our digital library, speeding up the dissemination and providing the scholarly community access to groundbreaking working papers and early-stage research. SSRN provides the opportunity to share different outputs of research such as preliminary or exploratory investigations, book chapters, PhD dissertations, course and teaching materials, presentations, and posters among others. SSRN also helps Corporate Strategy and Business Policy scholars discover the latest research in their own and other fields of interest, while providing a platform for the early sharing of their own work, making it available for subsequent work to be built upon more quickly.
SSRN’s Corporate Strategy & Business Policy Research Network (POL) includes research on how an entity defines their business and how they plan to reach their goals via the areas of change management, diversification strategy and policy, and firm performance enhancement among others. This area intersects with others on SSRN including cutting-edge research in economics, corporate governance, finance, and accounting.
