Hutchison-Krupat is dialed in on innovation. He is an authority on incentives for new product development — an important issue as product life cycles become ever shorter. Hutchison-Krupat is an expert on making innovation strategy work and on collaborative innovations — the processes through which organizations achieve their innovation goals.
His research focuses on the effective execution of a firm’s innovation strategy. Hutchison-Krupat’s recent work has evaluated the effect that various resource allocation processes have on a firm’s ability to innovate, the appropriate use of different performance metrics for collaborative innovation, and the effect of incentives and tolerance for failure on managerial decision-making within an innovation context.
Prior to joining the Darden faculty, Hutchison-Krupat worked for Avery Dennison Corporation in a variety of positions, including financial analyst and product development manager.
He co-authored “Strategic Resource Allocation: Top-Down, Bottom-Up and the Value of Strategic Buckets” in Management Science and “Tolerance for Failure and Incentives for Collaborative Innovation” in Production and Operations Management.
