Traditionally, R&D management has been concerned with the choice of project and resourcing the research, but increasingly the scope has been extended to examine other ways of developing and acquiring technology. This has involved forming partnerships and alliances, with other organisations and academic institutions. RADMA aims to support the development of this discipline which encompasses a number of key themes:
- Ideas screening
- Intellectual Property development and management
- Time to market improvement
- Technology transfer
- Project selection
- Project management
- Environmental scanning
- Open innovation
- Systematic process development
- Encouraging involvement of all functions
- Overlapping and parallel working
- Appropriate management structures
- Cross functional team working
- Emphasis on learning and development
- Early supplier involvement
- Involvement of leading edge users in product development
- Flatter, more flexible organisation structures
- Development of internal databases
- Effective external data links
RADMA is keen to develop best practice in these areas by sharing academic insights and practitioners experience.
