The Department of Management and Strategy

  1. 1. The Department of Management and Strategy
  2. 2. What is Strategy? <ul><li>Strategy, as defined at Kellogg, is the use of economics to help organizations meet their objectives, while explicitly accounting for: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Competition from other organizations. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The constraints placed on the organization by laws, regulations, and other government policies. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The individual incentives of the members of the organization. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>The most common application is the case of for-profit firms maximizing profits in the face of: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Competitive pressures from other firms, buyers, and suppliers. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Government policies toward the industry. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Inherent conflicts in the goals and incentives of owners, managers, and workers. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>However, strategy is also crucial for other organizations with their own unique objectives, including not-for-profit firms, schools, and government agencies. Studying strategy in these contexts is an active growth area for the department. </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>Who Are We? </li></ul><ul><li>20+ full and part-time faculty. Primary areas of research match up with the elements of strategy from the last slide: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Industrial organization economists, who study competition between firms. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Economists who study the constraints – government policies, taxes, legal institutions, contracts, etc. – that shape the rules of the competitive game. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Organization economists who look inside firms to study incentives, with special focus on ways to manage conflicts between owners, managers, and workers. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Public economists who study strategy in government agencies, schools, etc. </li></ul></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>Examples of Faculty Research Topics </li></ul><ul><li>Entry strategies in differentiated goods industries </li></ul><ul><li>Capacity and pricing decisions in airlines </li></ul><ul><li>Competition in high technology, “network” industries </li></ul><ul><li>Effects of the quality of information on health care markets </li></ul><ul><li>Competition and entry in “markets for ideas,” including the impact of patent laws </li></ul><ul><li>The role of organizational structure in firm performance </li></ul><ul><li>Strategic issues in litigation </li></ul>
