Anne Marie Knott

Professor, University of Washington

Anne Marie Knott, Ph.D. is the Robert and Barbara Frick Professor in Business at Olin Business School, Washington University in St Louis. Prior to her appointment at Olin, she was Assistant Professor of Management at the Wharton School. Professor Knott holds MBA and PhD degrees management from UCLA Anderson Graduate School of Management. Her primary research area is innovation (both large scale R&D and entrepreneurship, which she views as complementary in contributing to economic growth). Most recently, Professor Knott developed a measure of a company’s R&D productivity, called RQ (short for research quotient) that links their R&D to growth and market value. Her goal is to reverse the 65% decline in companies’ RQs, and thereby revive economic growth. The book, How Innovation Really Works, documents insights from two NSF-funded studies about how to do that. amkANALYTICS helps companies put those insights into practice.

Because her research has important practical implications for companies and investors, Professor Knott has been a keynote speaker at the the National Academies, the Industrial Research Institute (IRI), and the American Chemical Society (ACS) CTO summit, and the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) Institute annual meeting. She is a regular contributor to Harvard Business Review and has on online column at Forbes, both of which she uses to help companies increase their RQ, and investors understand the implications of doing so.
