Research Summary

Entrepreneurs face many important decisions every day. For example, 

  • How should you invest time in process improvement efforts during growth?
  • When should you hire your first employee? How do you retain the good ones?
  • How do consumers make purchase choice? How should you allocate sales effort?
  • When is it beneficial to frequently “pivot” during the product development process?
  • In which situations is it sensible to engage in a relationship that is trust-based?

Dr. Yoo's research utilizes various analytical models (e.g., stochastic dynamic programming, Bayesian learning, and game theory) relevant for entrepreneurial growth settings, and provide insights that can aid entrepreneurial firm operations.
