FCBE Management Professors Published

For release:  July 10, 2013

Dr. Robert Wiggins, Associate Professor of Management, and Dr. Frances Fabian, Assistant Professor of Management, were recently published in a new book Strategic Management in the 21st Century, from Praeger Publishing.  Their chapter provided an overview for the section on central strategy theories, and was entitled, “Hypercompetition in the 21st Century: A Look Back and a Look Forward.”
The chapter highlights the contribution of the concept of “hypercompetition,” in which firms experience shorter and shorter periods of competitive advantage and must resort to novel tactics of competition, to recent strategy research.  Furthermore, the chapter provides an elaborated template of four arenas of competition, noting their importance to education and practice in MBA programs.  The “Look Ahead” section considers the four arenas of competition in light of continuing changes in technology and the need to integrate related theory as well as undertake further research in understudied arenas. The three volume book series serves as a rich resource for taking stock of the current progress of strategic management, and provides a template for researchers internationally to build their research program.
