About the Edition

This paper studies a simple model of experimentation and innovation. Our analysis suggests that patents may improve the allocation of resources by encouraging rapid experimentation and efficient ex post transfer of knowledge across firms. Each firm receives a private signal on the success probability of one of many potential research projects and decides when and which project to implement. A successful innovation can be copied by other firms. Symmetric equilibria (where actions do not depend on the identity of the firm) always involve delayed and staggered experimentation, whereas the optimal allocation never involves delays and may involve simultaneous rather than staggered experimentation. The social cost of insufficient experimentation can be arbitrarily large. Appropriately-designed patents can implement the socially optimal allocation (in all equilibria). In contrast to patents, subsidies to experimentation, research, or innovation cannot typically achieve this objective. We also show that when signal quality differs across firms, the equilibrium may involve a non-monotonicity, whereby players with stronger signals may experiment after those with weaker signals. We show that in this more general environment patents again encourage experimentation and reduce delays. Keywords: delay, experimentation, innovation, patents, research.

Patents are useful in cases like the improved apple I described, but you don’t always need broad patent protection to encourage innovation. What else did you find? We were able to show another reason that patents aren’t necessarily a great proxy for innovation: differences in the use of patents across industries.

Jeff Bezos is inventing more, not less. Jun 06,  · I frequently ask management audiences to list all the business experiments that they are aware of in their companies.

While Mullins is writing specifically about launching a start-up, some of his ideas seem applicable to innovation more healthtechdays.com particular, he notes the importance of experimentation to achieving success -- and of testing ideas rather than becoming attached to them from the start.

Mar 10,  · By Stefan Thomke There is a downside to businesses that focus heavily on standardization, optimization, and driving out variability: Such organizations leave themselves vulnerable to underinvesting in experimentation and variation, which are the lifeblood of innovation.

Good experimentation helps firms better manage myriad sources of uncertainty (such as, does the product Phone: Every company's ability to innovate depends on a process of experimentation whereby new products and services are created and existing ones improved.

But the cost of experimentation often limits innovation. New technologies--including computer modeling and simulation--promise to lift that constraint by changing the economics of experimentation.
