Research

The Mack Institute’s research begins with the premise that emerging technologies change paradigms: they upend the very structure of established firms. Traditional management principles don’t take into account the high levels of risk and uncertainty that result from disruptive innovation.

Innovation management is an intrinsically cross-industry field. Our activities are driven by four priorities that together define our academic domain.

Since 1994, the Mack Institute has provided over $3.6 million in funding toward more than 400 projects that advance our research priorities.
