The series Advances in Applied Business Strategy (AABS) is the leading forum for research that addresses the challenging 'middle ground' in the strategic management process – the ways in which strategy theory, concepts, and frameworks can be usefully and effectively applied in practice. AABS is focused on the key issues of articulating the implications of new theory for strategic management, of defining useful applications of new strategy theory in practice, and of designing approaches to implementing new practices in the process of strategic management.
