8 Metrics That Quantify R&D Spending Performance


Webinar Description

This program focuses on key performance indicators [KPIs] that have R&D spending in their calculation. The metrics range from corporate metrics that are either reported to Wall Street or used by analysts and CFOs, to measures that help to divvy-up funds across business units of different purposes and performance levels, to measures that improve the ranking of investments, to measures that can be used to modulate overspending or underspending for corporate and industry considerations.

We'll begin the program with a discussion of R&D intensity and how it differs across industries and examine some recent cross-industry findings regarding the specific spending of funds for Advanced Development activities. These subjects make for a good lead in to the eight R&D spending metrics as industries are different, as are the quantified values of their metrics.

Bibliographic references are provided for the numerous cases and examples we cite to enable all participants to further their investigation on the subjects of specific interest.

There will be two polls.
