    Abstract

    Event synopsis: The "Strategy-as-Practice" (SAP) perspective seeks to illuminate the activity and practice of strategizing by re-conceptualising strategy as something that people do in organizations rather than something organizations have. The purpose of this sub-theme is to further expand the study of SAP so that it includes the study of discursive practices as a means by which to explore the socially situated, day-to-day shaping and transforming of strategy in organizations. Specifically, the sub-theme will explore the production, dissemination and consumption of strategy discourse(s), how these discourses are largely constituted, enacted, maintained or transformed through discursive work, and their implications for work and organisation. The SAP research agenda connects with the broader "practice turn" in contemporary social sciences by attending to the micro-level of social activity in particular organizational settings and to the location of such activity in relation to broader social, discursive and material practices. This sub-theme will therefore address multiple facets of discourse research including the textual, contextual, performative and material aspects of strategy-related discourses and will also address questions of research design and methodology.
