All Remaking R&D

Established research and development organizations are under growing pressure — and not only to reduce costs or increase productivity.

They’re expected to become more “permeable” to the outside world, they’re expected to monitor and understand potentially disruptive technologies on a daily basis, and they need to attract talent and explore working with colleagues around the organization in new ways.

A good starting place in this section is our research report, “Retooling R&D for a New Era,” which includes survey data and interviews with senior leaders from Comcast, Kellogg’s, W.L. Gore, Hain Celestial, and more.
