March 19, 2019

Barry Goldman, associate professor of management and organizations, is quoted in March 18 articles on the most innovative states in the United States in WalletHubCrain’s Cleveland Business and GeekWire.

The study ranks Massachusetts as the most innovative state and Mississippi as the least innovative.

Goldman says, in the article, that “the cost of failing to respond to macroeconomic trends and to innovate in response, is to lose long-term economic growth.” Therefore, it’s critical for policymakers to develop long-term perspectives that better enable them to enact innovative policies. 

Goldman’s areas of expertise include human resource management, conflict management and negotiation, organizational justice, social exchange and employee legal-claiming. He earned his PhD at the University of Maryland.
