Stephen E. Chick

Professor of Technology and Operations Management
Novartis Chair of Healthcare Management
Academic Director, Healthcare Management Initiative

Steve Chick is a Professor of Technology and Operations Management at INSEAD. He was named Academic Director of INSEAD's Healthcare Management Initiative and the Novartis Chair of Healthcare Management in 2008. He received his MS and PhD from the University of California at Berkeley in Industrial Engineering and Operations Research and his BS in Mathematics from Stanford University. Prior to joining INSEAD, he taught process modelling, simulation and information systems as a faculty member at the University of Michigan, and had worked for five years in the automotive and software industries. In the MBA program at INSEAD, he teaches the ‘Creating Value in Health’ elective, and has taught the Process and Operations Management core course and the Management of Services elective. He also teaches in the PhD programme, in the area of stochastic processes. He teaches in executive education in operations strategy, improvement and innovation, is the academic director of three programs in Executive Education, the Middle East Health Leadership Program (MEHLP), the Innovating Health for Tomorrow (IHT) program, and the Strategic Innovation for Community Health (STICH) program. He also designs and delivers customized executive development programs in the area of business model innovation for health care delivery and pharmaceutical organizations.

His research brings together operations management, simulation and statistical decision making tools to help improve process design and public health decisions. A current project is involved with sequential clinical trial design and health analytics for sepsis management in collaboration with several academic hospitals and European Union support. Another project is exploring value-based reimbursement in health care delivery systems. His work on epidemic modelling and simulation and vaccine and intervention trial analysis has been funded by the US Environmental Protection Agency and the Centers for Disease Control. He has worked on integrating operations management and health care concepts to find cost-effective ways of managing the influenza vaccine supply chain, and cost-benefit analysis for the control of infectious diseases, such as vCJD. He is also applying the ideas of high-performing industrial organizations to the health care delivery context.

In addition to teaching and research, Steve provides leadership and service to several academic journals and professional organizations. He previously served as President of the Institute for Operations Research and Management Science's Simulation Society, and is Departmental Editor for Simulation at the journal Operations Research, Associate Editor for the journal Management Science, and is a Senior Editor in the Healthcare Operations Management area of the POMS Journal. He has served in editorial capacities for ACM Transactions on Modeling and Computer Simulation, Naval Research Logistics, and Health Care Management Science.
