50 Years of Change in Industrial Research and Technology Management
Abstract:Industrial R&D has undergone major changes since 1958, when IRI's journal, Research-Technology Management (RTM) was first published. These changes include industry's growing investment in R&D, the composition of its human resources, and techniques for effective management, organization, and leadership of the R&D enterprise. The current trend toward globalization of markets, manufacturing and R&D is leading to rapid growth in collaborative efforts to conduct R&D with other firms, universities and government labs. Future changes, enabled by new information technologies, will be even more dramatic—and rapid.
