The Challenges of Research Organizations
R&D-focused organizations are up against significant challenges when selecting the right mix of projects to push forward. Johanna Dwyer discusses the challenges inherent to selecting projects that meet overall business and portfolio goals.
What challenges do research organizations content with when selecting projects?
"One of the biggest challenges is that you’re selecting a project at the project level, but you need to do it with a view of the whole portfolio and understanding where it fits into your portfolio goals, which are part of the research and development goals and therefore part of the business goals so you can’t look at a project individually without trying to put it in the framework of what are you trying to achieve with your portfolio."
what are the challenges when transitioning projects from research to commercialization?
"Bringing the technology up through the business development channels through R&D within the business and then deploying it inside the business may even be harder than bringing it up through R&D and selling it outside."
