About the Center

Our mission

The Kellogg Center for Research in Technology & Innovation (CRTI) empowers professionals to understand the critical role that technology and innovation play in enhancing operational effectiveness and driving sustained profitable growth.

Our philosophy: a true collaboration with corporate partners

The CRTI combines leading-edge research and longstanding relationships with senior executives at top corporations to address critical challenges facing managers today. At Kellogg, our faculty members believe corporate leaders are vital contributors to evaluating and solving management challenges, and CRTI’s works collaboratively with those executives to create knowledge that delivers results for practitioners and scholars.

Defining key issues at the forefront of innovation management, our corporate collaborators inform and shape our research. As our advisers, they open doors for our faculty in their empirical investigations, while providing critical feedback. Ultimately, it is these deep relationships that rigorously test and inform the research process and guide future investigations.

In business, repeat customers often provide a certain measure of success. At the center, most corporate partners repeat their annual commitment of time and financial resources illustrating the center’s continued value.
