Research-Technology Management (RTM) Journal

Vol. 58, No. 1, January-February 2015
James A. Euchner, Editor-in-Chief
MaryAnne M. Gobble, Managing Editor

Results of IRI's annual trends survey reveal a flat outlook for 2015, with R&D leaders expecting spending to hold steady.

Anita Friis Sommer, Christian Hedegaard, Iskra Dukovska-Popovska, and Kenn Steger-Jensen show how combining a conventional Stage-Gate process with elements of Agile development can provide a more flexibie, responsive product development process.

Jean-Francois Harvey, Patrick Cohendet, Laurent Simon, and Stefano Borzillo describe how one firm nutures and engages with its knowing communities to fuel the front end of innovation.
