Welcome to RTM’s 60th year. In this celebratory first issue of our 60th volume, we’ve mostly celebrated our past by looking ahead to the future—the commentaries that make up the bulk of this issue, from some of the leading voices in the field, are an attempt to piece together a picture of where we are and where we’re headed, a map of the state of the art in R&D management. But to really know where you’re going, so the saying goes, you have to know where you came from. With that in mind, this column will explore how the concept of innovation and the idea of industrial R&D have evolved, not just in the last six decades but in the last couple of centuries.
