Despite being a relatively young discipline, strategic management has grown dramatically in size and influence over the past few decades. As with any field, the findings generated within strategic management are only as robust as the research methods used to conduct the analyses. Although strategic management's accomplishments with regard to methods have been substantial, it is confronted by significant challenges as well. The authors describe these accomplishments and challenges, explain how the articles offered in this feature topic help to address certain challenges, and offer suggestions for future work that may create additional progress. © 2008 Sage Publications.
