It’s been said that “R&D portfolio investments commit the strategy, while project execution pays the bills”. Yet, not far behind the scenes in both is the information that decision makers and implementers need to be successful. Almost every company uses R&D metrics, but few are satisfied that they are measuring the right things. Executive teams struggle to estimate the return on investment for technologies far too early in their maturity. Project teams struggle with too many metrics imposed on them that are too far removed from the real issues that they face. This session provides an easy to implement method of identifying, prioritizing & managing the “critical few” real world R&D metrics that you can use to first identify, and then execute successful innovation.
