This Summit will provide participants with a snapshot of the evolution, current status, and projected future of R&D and Product Development Metrics as viewed from the top of corporations.
During the first two seminars of the Summit, we will teach the Body of Knowledge of R&D and Product Development Metrics -- with a focus towards the measures that company Officers and Senior Executives need to manage the organization and its performance as a whole. For example, did you know that 3M's "Vitality Index" is now used by about 55% of all companies? For example, did you know that "Return On Innovation" is the number one metric being adopted by industry during the past five years?
During the third and final seminar of the Summit, participants will break into working groups to create a "set of metrics" suitable for managing and monitoring R&D and/or Product Development organizations as a whole -- including Projects, Technical & Functional Disciplines, Improvement Initiatives, and the overall Corporate Performance of R&D. Did you know that GGI's Linked Metrics Portfolio® framework is preferred by executives to the Balanced Scorecard for managing R&D and Product Development?
Senior executives wishing to put themselves and their fellow senior executives in a better position to direct and drive product creation and commercialization should strongly consider attending. Several of our prior participants have said, “This Summit covers everything an Officer or Senior Manager needs to know on the subject of Metrics.” GGI, a 27-year old company, has been recognized as a thought leader and practitioner in this field since the early 1990s.
