Georgia Institute of Technology College of Management associate professor, Chris Forman, recently served as an expert panelist as part of a Federal Communications Commission (FCC) workshop in Washington D.C.

The goal of the workshop, part of an FCC initiative to develop a national broadband plan, was to evaluate the potential impact of increased broadband penetration and speed on U.S. productivity growth, economic growth and employment.

Forman's research interests include the study of the adoption and returns to IT investment among businesses, with a particular interest on the role of geography and standards on the value of IT infrastructure investments. Serving as the Robert and Stevie Schmidt professor, as well as a Sloan Industry Studies Fellow, he also studies innovation in the IT and software industries and electronic commerce.

Experts from the University of Maryland, Northwestern University and Pepperdine University, along with the president and CEO of the Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies and managing director of Core Capital Partners were also included on the panel.
