Annual Meeting 2013 - R&D Benchmarking

IRI Diamond Jubilee
R&D Benchmarking

Stage: Gathering and analyzing data 

The focus of this special R&D Benchmarking project is to explore typical R&D (may be referred to as Technology or Innovation) investments in similarly sized companies. Join the discussion to investigate preliminary survey results of issues ranging from how many people are engaged in technology development and other technically related activities within a company; what company attributes help determine whether a dual ladder system exists and if it does, whether these employees have resources at their disposal and how they are compensated; what are the most important metrics used. Attendees should come prepared to share their perspectives and experience related to the findings.

Team Members: Greg Shaw, Swagelok; Larry Schwartz, Intellectual Assets, Inc.(SME)
