Abstract

The focus of the article is the relationship between history and strategy. Although little interest can be found in mainstream management journals, the hidden relationship between history and strategy is looked for here in a double sense. On the one hand, the article will try to historicise strategy, questioning the alleged discontinuity that is normally used to explain the emergence of the notion itself. More than changes at the ontological level, it is changes at the perspectival level that explain the establishment of the new area of research. The article also discusses possible implications for broader historical research when taking into account some of the hidden distinguishing features of strategy studies and strategising history.
