1st R&D-Product Development Metrics Summit

This Summit has already been held. Please visit our current Metrics Summit.


An integrated metrics program can result in greater speed in new product development, more profitable products, and improved performance of your research and development environment. What does such an integrated program entail?  Find out by attending the Goldense Group, Inc.'s Product Development Metrics Summit to be held September 27 - 30, 2005 in metro Boston.  The Metrics Summit is a series of 3 seminars, focused on 3 major areas of importance to R&D executives and managers.

The first seminar (Measuring Product Development II (MPDII) - September 27) addresses the subjects of setting hurdle rates, assessing risk and complexity, tradeoff analysis, measuring capacity, and assessing overall financial performance.  Click to view the MPDII abstract or to download the table of contents.

The second seminar (Proactive and Predictive R&D Metrics (PPRD) - September 28) focuses on three different stages of developing early, predictive metrics that will enable managers to foresee issues on the horizon or to know that success is in front of them.  Click to view the PPRD abstract or to download the table of contents.

The third seminar, a capstone, (Product Development Metrics Portfolios (PDMP) - September 29 & 30) is expressly for the purpose of developing a set of measures for the R&D organization as a whole, including the few measures that should be used by the corporation to measure R&D productivity, output, and overall performance results.  Click to view the PDMP abstract or to download the table of contents.

All three seminars are geared to top-level professionals that manage entire organizations, departments, budgets, and senior program management executives.  An excellent approach would include two to four key staff members who could produce a result for the R&D organization as a whole.

Reserve your place today - space is limited.  Visit us on line to register.   Register by August 1 to take advantage of our Early Bird discount.  Take all three seminars at a discount, or take one or two seminars according to your needs.
