In the whole, preceding literature reviews on the contemporary strategic management phenomena of open strategy include a number of limitations: they are deficient of a detailed concentration, deliver an excessive definitional focus or are absent of a distinct empirical analysis of research in the field. In order to address these shortcomings, this paper endeavours to systematically examine the existing literature on open strategy by classifying its main characteristics, connecting the different aspects together in a structured and comprehensive definition. This considered review of extant literature assesses numerous characteristics of open strategizing as they are presented in preceding research. Consequently, the systematic and methodical approach taken by this paper affords an alternative way of comprehending open strategy and contributes to the field by providing a consolidation of the literature and signifying potential streams for future research to explore.
