Wolf, Gerrit

Professor Gerrit Wolf conducts research in the management of innovation.  Innovation management balances entrepreneurial and inventor experiences of startup teams and matches services to customers wanting simple and cost effective or complex and novel in benefit innovations.  Results compared wireless startups and customers in the US, Sweden, and Korea.  Mid career research covered the economic and psychological sunk costs of management of projects.  The research explored how projects failed from cost over runs or succeeded from customer savings of discounts, scholarships, or tax deductions.  My career started with research of the management of conflict using non-zero sum games. Management of employees or the competition is a game of trust that needs nurturing to be maintained and hard to mend if broken.
