2000 R&D-Product Development Metrics Survey
"Portfolio Management and Strategy Practices"
The purpose of the 2000 R&D Metrics Survey was to determine industry's new product development portfolio management practices. How do companies manage their new product portfolios from product idea to market launch? To cover the subject matter thoroughly, the questionnaire was designed to secure the following information on several aspects or facets of portfolio management:
The 2000 survey questionnaire was quantitative and primarily targeted at advanced R&D practitioners. Many companies chose not to participate, we believe, because their business measurement processes were not sufficiently mature to generate the information sought by the survey.
Approximately 14,600 questionnaires were distributed and 122 were returned for a response rate of 0.82%.
About 50% of the responding companies came from the aerospace, automotive, consumer products, durable goods, electronics, industrial and medical products industries.
55% of respondent companies had sales revenues less than $250 million and had less than 1000 employees.
90% of the respondents sell, develop and manufacture in North.
