Michael Schrage
Research Fellow, MIT Center for Digital Business;
Visiting Fellow, Martin Trust Center for MIT Entrepreneurship;
Visiting Fellow, Imperial College Department of Innovation and Entrepreneurship
Michael Schrage is a fellow with MIT Sloan School's Initiative on the Digital Economy and the author of ’The Innovator’s Hypothesis’ [MIT Press 2014], ‘Who Do You Want Your Customers To Become?’ [Harvard Business Review Press 2012], and ‘Serious Play’ [Harvard Business Review Press 2000], among others. His research, writing, and advisory work focuses on the ‘behavioral economics’ of models, prototypes, and experiments as collaborative media for managing ‘innovation risk’ and opportunity. His current research explores the interplay of ’network effects’ with innovation and human capital. Schrage’s pioneering work in ‘selvesware’ technologies was designed to augment aspects, attributes, and talents of productive individuals. Current research building on that theme, in collaboration with Google and the Sloan Management Review, addresses the ‘future of KPIs’ and digital dashboards. His particular interest is the future of ‘agency’ in algorithmically-rich networked environments.
