Organizational constraints are far and away the main curb on the agility and performance of R&D. These boundaries typically outpace financial, regulatory and other concerns. Organizational considerations include not only the structure itself, but also other internal elements such as functional collaboration, incentive alignment, systems, and processes.

Topics covered include:
  • Overcoming company resistance to new ideas and advice for getting management buy-in
  • Determining the drivers of ROI for your company
  • Minimizing risk through technical due diligence
  • Budget and cost constraint management
  • Managing 3rd party suppliers and relationships
