Strategic Management Society is an organisation unique in bringing together the worlds of reflective practice and thoughtful scholarship.

The Society consists of nearly 3,000 members representing a kaleidoscope of backgrounds and perspectives from more than 80 different countries. Membership, composed of academics, business practitioners, and consultants, focuses on the development and dissemination of insights on the strategic management process, as well as on fostering contacts and interchange around the world.

We are pleased to announce, that one of conference extensions will be organised in Vilnius, Lithuania. Therefore on behalf of the Strategic Management Society (SMS) and ISM University of Management and Economics in Vilnius, Lithuania, we invite you to attend the “Strategic Innovation and Entrepreneurship in Transitioning and Emerging Economies” Extension on October 11, 2012 at ISM University of Management and Economics. You may participate in this Extension without attending the main SMS conference.


There is a US$ 85.00 registration fee (for current SMS members) which must be paid directly to SMS via the following link: http://prague.strategicmanagement.net/registration/extensions.php. The fee is $105 for non-SMS members. The registration fee includes a light lunch, coffee/snacks and gala dinner.
