Rewarding Innovation: Can New Ideas be Bought?

Michael J. Gibbs
Clinical Professor of Economics and Faculty Director, Executive MBA Program,
Chicago Booth

Can creativity be motivated by rewards? This question is the subject of controversy among psychologists and economists. Professor Michael Gibbs, Faculty Director, Executive MBA Programs, and Clinical Professor of Economics, provides some new insights into this question by discussing his latest research on innovation at an Indian technology company. The company uses interesting and unusual practices to motivate employees to generate new ideas on behalf of clients - including an experiment involving non-monetary rewards for new ideas.

Join Professor Gibbs as he reveals findings from the experiment, and explains the implications for motivating creativity in the workplace.
