Management for enhanced R&D productivity
by Tomb Takahashi
International Journal of Technology Management (IJTM), Vol. 14, No. 6/7/8, 1997

Abstract: This paper discusses ways to improve a company's R&D performance. Finding appropriate projects is crucial to the company's links to commercialisation. Since commercialisation requires co-operation from top management as well as all the company-wide management, one must make sure that R&D projects match the corporate strategy. Also, to avoid missing the moving target, the R&D action plan must account for uncertainty factors. Thus, the most critical role for an R&D manager is to keep the R&D projects abreast of the corporate strategy at all times.
