Research and development, innovation, product development, and marketing executives face daunting pressures, such as keeping customers engaged, reducing product launch delays and R&D program failures, increasing staff productivity, managing competitive pressures, and generating higher returns on their R&D and innovation investments. As a consequence, successful 21st century innovation organizations require better, faster, and more cost effective ways of solving problems and innovating to both drive business growth and spread risk.
