Research and Development is the vehicle by which organizations and economies create opportunity, innovation and secure a stream of future products and services.
These outcomes are all critically important sources of sustainability in a world that is changing faster than most companies can keep up.
The challenge behind them is the fundamental unpredictability of R&D; which is why effective project management is so important.
Ron Basu's Managing Projects in Research and Development explains how and why project management can provide a means of helping to plan, organise and control multi-disciplinary research activities without stifling innovation.
Combining research with practical examples and experience from a career that has included blue chip organizations such as GSK, GlaxoWellcome and Unilever, Ron Basu offers a rigorous guide to the fundamentals of R&D project management including project lifecycle management, risk management; cost, time quality and other success measures as well as the keys to operational excellence in this complicated world.
