5th Annual R&D Performance Management

Is it about the metrics or the innovation?

8-10 June 2020
NH Constanza Barcelona, Spain

Conference Workshop

How to Counter the Increasing Lack of Transparency in Complex Innovation Scenarios

Our interactive workshop will explore solutions to the increasing lack of transparency in complex innovation scenarios. Increasing competition and complexity make it important for management to make the right decisions, the right prioritizations. Lack of transparency can lead to incorrect decisions reducing competitiveness, product solutions and can have high negative impact on revenue, cost and shareholder value.

Workshop Moderator: Peter Voldestedlund, Executive Program Manager

Company: MHI Vestas Offshore, Denmark

By attending this marcus evans pan-European and cross-industry conference for controllers and R&D professionals, you will be able to discuss how to get the most out of your investment; you will be able to benchmark how others are doing valuations and project prioritisation and discuss the R&D finance, more technical aspects, as well as the important strategic question of looking beyond typical project metrics to assess the economic value of knowledge generated by R&D. You will be able to explore the impact of external financing or partnering on how you manage your portfolio. The case studies will be practical and the discussions open and interactive for maximum learning and knowledge sharing.

In the current, fast-changing environment, companies must prioritise and avoid wasteful R&D investments. R&D controllers have to learn how to work well with innovation managers for better results, not least of which is how to ensure you get the most benefit out of portfolios and overcome bottlenecks in the process. Having the right capabilities, the right toolbox, and the right processes in place is crucial if R&D performance management is to make a difference.
