Managing Product Development (MPD)

A nine-day management development program for R&D Managers

An R&D manager with the ability to integrate business thinking, technological opportunities, team skills and motivation beyond the formal organization will always be crucial to the competitiveness of a company. The MPD program offers nine days about strategy, organization, leadership, tools and methods for R&D managers.

As an R&D manager, do you now and then wish that you had explicit processes and methods to improve the productivity of your R&D team? Do you wish that you could better handle the politics of R&D management and not get involved in continuous reallocation of people and resources? Do you feel that you could improve your ability to create a robust development strategy and implement it into the everyday practice?
