For the past fifteen years I have dealt with innovations:
On the one hand, in executive roles at high-tech ventures, including a genomics biotech firm which we built based on exclusive access to a nobel laureate's technology, a global data analytics firm which we successfully bootstrapped, and consulting work for start-ups and large corporates.
On the other hand, as a researcher adressing tough innovation challenges that I come across. My research has been discussed at conferences including the Academy of Management, the Strategic Management Society and the Babson Conference for Entrepreneurship Research.
If there is one thing I have found, it is this: A key to solving many innovation challenges and boosting innovation outcomes is a better understanding of human behavior. And so my research, teaching and consulting currently focuses on the intersection of innovation and organizational behavior. In two words: behavioral innovation.
