Thinkers50 Radar 2022: Melissa A. Schilling

Melissa Schilling

Melissa A. Schilling is an authority on innovation and strategy in high technology industries. She is the Herzog Professor of Management at the NYU Stern School of Business, where her research has investigated how tech firms win battles in platform ecosystems, and how modularity creates value in both product and organizational forms. Her textbook Strategic Management of Technological Innovation is the number one innovation strategy text in the world. She is also coauthor of Strategic Management: An integrated approach (now in its twelfth edition).

Melissa’s latest book, Quirky, explores the science of what differentiates those people who come up with world-changing innovations time and time again, from innovators with a single creative idea. By delving into the lives of eight famous serial innovators such as Elon Musk and Nikola Tesla, Melissa is able to identify the traits and experiences that drove them to repeatedly make spectacular breakthroughs.


In this video, NYU Stern Professor Melissa Schilling presents a virtual lecture entitled ‘Batteries, Electrification, Platforms and Data: How a Convergence in New Technologies Will Change the World’ as part of the Stern seminar series ‘Faculty Insights: Current and Future Trends.’
