Despite the plethora of studies about strategy tools discussed in the strategy literature, we are still missing theoretical developments stemming from studies of how they are used in practice and with what outcomes. The tools of interest are strategy models depicting qualitative or quantitative relationships between strategic issues and their implied consequences. Adopting a boundary object perspective, and drawing on data gathered from five strategy workshops, we posit that variations in the use of strategy tool can enable or constraint their ability to become effective boundary objects for those involved, thereby influencing the extent to which the purpose of the workshop is achieved. This study extends research on strategy practices by shedding light on the dynamics of strategy tool use in workshops.
