Strategic management has evolved from a largely atheoretical applied management discipline to a theoretically and empirically rigorous research-based discipline. The promise of the field is that the evolution towards rigor will continue, and that this evolution will enable strategic management scholars to engage in important policy and related debates around the world. The peril of this evolution is that the field could become fully self-referential, in which case we lose contact with two of our most important stakeholders—practicing strategic managers and students. Managing the tension between this promise and peril will go a long way in determining the future of the field of strategic management.
