Letizia Mortara is an Associate Professor at the Institute for Manufacturing, Department of Engineering. She is also an Associate Editor for the R&D Management journal and leads the R&D Management conference Office. Letizia’s research focuses on Technological Decision Making with the aim to improve organisational response to fast-changing technological and innovation contexts, and propose management tools and approaches that can support the taking of such decisions. In particular, she concentrates on three areas of work:.
- Cognition in Technology Management. How do managers cognitively respond to different technology management approaches for highly uncertain scenarios?
- Decision-making strategies for technology emergence. How do firms adapt their businesses to face fast-changing environments? Which approaches are more successful in the long term? How do organisations learn from their decisions?
- Cross-organisational strategies for societal impact. Many societal problems of today require trans-organizational decision-making. Collaborative approaches such as Open Innovation might be pivotal in resolving the more systemic of societal problems. How do Open Innovation approaches enable the achievement of societal impact?
