CitationSappenfield, James Michael. 2020. Three Essays on Human Capital Factors and Firm Innovation. Doctoral dissertation, Harvard Business School.
AbstractThis dissertation examines how the management of human capital factors impacts firm innovation. The first chapter produces causal estimates of the asset value of inventors to firms following inventors' unexpected deaths. The second chapter studies how multinational entities manage patent innovation in context of reforms to migration policy that shift the ease of business-related travel. The third chapter explores how the breadth and depth of expert reviewers' knowledge impacts their preferences for financing novel innovation in individual R&D review settings through examining the case of scientific grant review.
