Sameer Qaiyum is a Senior Lecturer in Strategic Management at Liverpool Business School. Previously, he has also held academic posts at Loughborough University and Royal Holloway, University of London.

Sameer's research interests are in the areas of strategic management and innovation. Within these broad research areas, he is particularly interested in how firms can turn strategic resources into innovative outcomes and superior profit, using primarily quantitative methods. His expertise falls in the areas of:

• Strategic decision-making process: how firms make strategic decisions and its impact on firms’ success and failure.
• Competitive dynamics: how firms compete with each other using complex moves and counter-moves.
• The resource-based view of the firm and dynamic capabilities: conceptual development, empirical validation, and practical application.
• Organisational ambidexterity: how firms explore new capabilities and exploit existing capabilities.

Sameer has published in peer-reviews outlets, and have also received the British Academy of Management 2016 Best Strategy Paper Award. His PhD thesis is cited by SMJ- the apex journal in Strategic Management area.
