Center For Process Innovation

Our research focuses on leveraging digital innovation to create value by solving business and societal problems.

Realizing the value creation potential of digital technologies involves understanding how they can empower individuals, how organizations can deploy digital assets to transform strategies and business models, how organization can architect platforms to orchestrate vibrant ecosystems of stakeholders, and how smart collectives can be organized and governed.

We do not limit our focus to one technology or problem domain. Rather, we are investigating how advances in digital technologies, in combination with other resources, are fueling the digital revolution that is transforming business and society. We are conducting these investigations in partnership with companies across industries (e.g., Apollo Hospitals Group, China Mobile, Deutsche Bank, Emory Healthcare, Grady Hospitals, Daimler-Chrysler, Georgia-Pacific, Hewlett-Packard, Medical College of Georgia, IBM, SAP, UPS, SunTrust, etc.) and with researchers at leading universities across the world.
