Technology and Innovation is a featured research topic at Harvard Business School.
The early works of William Abernathy on roadblocks to innovation and Richard Rosenbloom on technology and information transfers in the 1960's and
1970's started the Technology Strategy field and helped pave the path for our
research today, which focuses on value creation of platforms and two-sided
markets; use of open architecture and leverage of its collective value;
development and execution of innovation strategies; innovative attributes of
executives and firms; development of new markets through the creation of
disruptive innovations that displace earlier technologies; development of
innovations in sectors; and the impact of innovation on economic growth.
