Since the publication of the two influential strategy process themed special issues in the Strategic Management Journal (Chakravarthy and Doz, 1992; Pettigrew, 1992) over 25 years ago, a lot has changed. The real world of organizations has been transformed, with markets achieving global reach and unimagined opportunities due to new technologies, especially digital. At the same time, there have been substantial advances in research: in particular, we see a new appreciation of process research (Langley et al, 2013), a turn towards practice theory in the social sciences (Shove et al, 2012), and the development of new innovative methodologies (Arora et al, 2016). This special issue on Strategy Processes and Practices will address many of these changes. Our argument will be that this is a particularly apt moment for exploring intersections of Practices and Processes, and that indeed it is both possible and desirable to combine them into a joint research stream that we shall call ‘Strategy as Process and Practice’ (SAPP).
