Centre for Strategy Studies in Organizations

Centre for Strategic Studies in Organizations (CSSO)

The Centre for Strategy Studies in Organizations (CSSO) supports research on strategy and related organizational issues. Its goal is to promote the execution and dissemination of the best possible research on issues central to organizations, especially the formation of strategic direction, the coordination of organizational activities, and the relationship between organizations and society.

It supports diverse approaches to strategy and strategic change, including longitudinal/qualitative as well as advanced quantitative methods. The Centre has no research staff or physical research facilities but contributes to the university's research mission by supporting research and related scholarly activities by faculty, visitors, and doctoral students at McGill University, and by facilitating dissemination of that knowledge through conferences, seminars, articles and working papers.

History of CSSO

The Centre's endowment was established in 1989-90 through contributions from the following sources: Royal Trustco, Imperial Oil, Steinberg Inc., Arnold Steinberg, and the McGill Management Institute. The Centre is governed by McGill University's Guidelines for Research Centers.
