5th R&D-Product Development Metrics Summit

This Summit has already been held. Please visit our current Metrics Summit.


New product revenues across industries have slipped more than 10% in the last five years.  There is now increased interest in measures that will help to push new product revenues forward again.  Do you know the top 5 metrics used by corporations to measure R&D?  These 5 measures are used by more than 50% of industrial and high tech companies.  Are you aware that measures of new product profitability are the fastest growing category of metrics?  Is your company experimenting with "proactive" and "predictive" measures?  There is a great deal of current experimentation in industry to find the metrics of the future.  Is your company able to adequately monitor and/or predict project performance, functional performance, and improvement effort performance and link these measures to overall R&D performance?  These and many other subjects will be discussed at GGI's upcoming Summit on R&D and Product Development metrics.


We are pleased to announce the US Patent & Trademark Office approved our application for a trademark for GGI's metrics framework, which is utilized on the third day of the Summit -- Linked Metrics Portfolio®.  Our approach to defining sets of metrics is on the cusp of widespread industry acceptance.

An integrated metrics program will result in greater speed in new product development, more profitable products, and improved performance of your research and development environment. What does such an integrated program entail?  Find out by attending Goldense Group, Inc.'s fifth Product Development Metrics Summit to be held March 20-22, 2007 in metro Boston.  The Metrics Summit is a series of 3 seminars, focused on 3 major areas of importance to R&D executives and managers.

The first seminar (Measuring Product Development II (MPDII) - March 20) addresses the subjects of setting hurdle rates, assessing risk and complexity, tradeoff analysis, measuring capacity, and assessing overall financial performance.  Click to view the MPDII abstract or to download the table of contents.

The second seminar (Proactive and Predictive R&D Metrics (PPRD) - March 21 AM) focuses on three different stages of developing early, predictive metrics that will enable managers to foresee issues on the horizon or to know that success is in front of them.  Click to view the PPRD abstract or to download the table of contents.

The third seminar, a capstone, (Product Development Metrics Portfolios (PDMP) - March 21 PM and March 22) is expressly for the purpose of developing a set of measures for the R&D organization as a whole, including the few measures that should be used by the corporation to measure R&D productivity, output, and overall performance results.  Click to view the PDMP abstract or to download the table of contents.

All three seminars are geared to top-level professionals that manage entire organizations, departments, budgets, and senior program management executives.  An excellent approach would include two to four key staff members who could produce a result for the R&D organization as a whole.
