Strategic Leadership Forum (www.spots.ab.ca/~slf/welcome.htm)
The Strategic Leadership Forum is North America's leading
international business organization focused on strategic management and planning.
Our Mission is to advance the understanding and practice of strategic management as the integrating force for improving individual and organizational performance and achieving global competitiveness.
We are the largest professional organization in the world focused on leading edge knowledge of strategy and its implementation. We've built our resources and networks to focus single-mindedly on strategy and implementation. Since this is our only mission, we track trends and issues better and go into greater depth than generalist organizations can.
Strategic Management Society (www.smsweb.org)
The Strategic Management Society (SMS) is unique in the world in two
respects. It brings together the worlds of reflective practice and thoughtful scholarship,
combining academics with business people and consultants, the ABCs we call them. And it
does so on a truly worldwide basis, with member representation from more than 50 countries
and an executive committee which is also international.
The SMS focuses its attention on the development and dissemination of insights on the strategic management process, as well as on fostering contacts and interchange among ABCs from around the world.
