Management Development Programme on "R&D Management"

Management Development Programme on "R&D Management"
17-19 September 2009
Organized by: SJM School of Management, Indian Institute of Technology Bombay, Mumbai

About the Programme
The post-liberalization era has opened Indian market to foreign goods and services. This has led to intense competition and forced Indian companies to pay attention to R&D with a view reduce costs and produce innovative products. The availability of highly educated scientific and technical manpower has also led to a host of MNC’s to set-up R&D and technical development centers in India. In order to focus on issues confronting R&D managers we propose to organize a three-day program on R&D management with emphasis on market driven R&D.

Target Audience
The MDP will benefit organizations that believe technology-led competence is imperative for competitiveness. Senior and middle level executives from industrial R&D units, R&D Organizations, Techno-entrepreneurs and R&D Consultants would find this program very useful.

The program will address following issues:
  • Overview of R&D Management
  • Linking R&D with Business Strategy
  • R&D Project Selection
  • Managing R&D Projects
  • Measuring R&D Effectiveness
  • Case Studies
  • Experience sharing sessions with R&D managers, industry experts will also be provided in the program.
