People analytics, judgment under uncertainty, organizational behavior
Cade Massey is a Practice Professor in the Wharton School’s Operations, Information, and Decisions Department. He received his PhD from the University of Chicago, and taught at Duke University and Yale University before moving to the University of Pennsylvania. Massey’s research focuses on judgment under uncertainty — how, and how well, people predict what will happen in the future. His work draws on experimental and “real world” data such as employee stock options, 401k savings, the National Football League draft, and graduate school admissions. His research has led to long-time collaborations with Google, Merck and multiple professional sports franchises. Massey’s research has been published in leading psychology and management journals, and covered by the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, The Economist, The Atlantic, and National Public Radio. He has taught MBA and Executive MBA courses for 15 years, receiving teaching awards from Duke, Yale and Penn for courses on negotiation, influence, organizational behavior and human resources. Massey is faculty co-director of Wharton’s People Analytics Initiative, co-host of “Wharton Moneyball” on SiriusXM Business Radio, and co-creator of the Massey-Peabody NFL Power Rankings for the Wall Street Journal.
