1998 R&D-Product Development Metrics Survey
"Industry Metrics, Reward & Recognition Practices"
The purpose of the 1998 Product Development Metrics Survey was to determine industry measurements and practices for Projects, and for R&D at the Corporate level. What measurements and practices do the leading edge companies use to monitor and/or reward new product performance?
The survey instrument was designed to secure the following information from participating respondents:
Approximately 6,200 questionnaires were distributed and 197 were returned for a response rate of 3.2%.
Companies best represented in the responses came from the Medical Products (13%), Electronics (10%), Automotive (9%) and Industrial Products industries (7%), with lesser percentages from a number of other industries.
About one-fifth of all respondents fell into the $100-$250 million sales revenue "bucket" with the next largest "bucket" at $1-$5 billion, and the other "buckets" had roughly equal percentages.
