A Review of Research Methods in Strategic Management; What Have Been Done, and What is Still Missing

Research methods designed to study strategic management, are as varied as the theories of strategy that have been developed over time. From the purely quantitative methods with mathematical models such as structural equations or multiple regression models, even the purely qualitative methods such as ethnography, or direct observation. However, despite the differences, all these methods are intended to build theory about the strategic management. In this sense, the present paper, reviewed the methodologies used in the generation of knowledge regarding the strategic management, and proposes future lines of research on the topic and the methods used.

Management in the Innovation Project

The object of this research is to identify the sources of risk in innovation projects and to determine whether they could be managed better. Due to the diversity of opinions and theories over the nature of risk, reaching an agreement about risk management is difficult. This will be a major problem if any effort is made to proactively manage ‘risk’ in naturally ‘risky’ areas such as innovation. Some risk management could be valuable, but perhaps too much, or inappropriate risk management might stifle innovation. It is necessary and valuable to consider the process of innovation from conceptualization to commercialization, how uncertainties are formed, how they are managed in that context, and how the techniques of risk management can be further deployed to enhance the success rate of innovation projects. Various approaches have been proposed to risk management in general, however the extent to which they are relevant for managing innovation is uncertain. Thus, during this paper, the general model of innovation and the process of risk management for managing the parameters which create the risk in these projects are explained.

Securitization As a Factor Of Economic Integration

This paper is aimed to show that securitization, a concept of the State security theory, provides some elements to obtain a more complete vision linked to other sciences about the economic integration processes. Until now, economic integration is studied by diverse strands of economic thought, exhausting the conceptual frameworks in reinterpretations impeding progress in the explanation of motivations of Nations to be economically linked. Here it has been linked to the categories of economic integration and the State security theory, to give an answer to the question of whether economic integration is a process that is explained by it or if it is determined by the search for security of States.

As a conclusion of the study, it proposes a conceptual model of economic integration and economic regionalization, as resulting from the process of securitization.
