Why You Should Attend

R&D Controlling & Performance Management

This marcus evans conference is a unique opportunity for R&D finance managers to discuss how to focus resources and competencies on smart R&D controlling activities that achieve real business impact. With a lot of effort going into aligning R&D with the business strategy, this is also a good opportunity to have a cross-functional discussion involving not only R&D finance professionals, but also R&D managers. There is an increased awareness of the need to make R&D commercially accountable and measure its real value and impact. By attending this marcus evens event, you will be able to discuss how to measure the output of R&D and create commercial value for the company. You will listen to practical case studies on how to ensure consistency and good planning and performance management when you go through a massive organizational change, and how to achieve agility in an environment of increasing change and complexity. You will have interactive discussions on how to focus on actionable KPIs, how to cope with differences in controlling practices in your organization, and what are the best practices in portfolio and project planning, controlling, and valuation.

Return on R&D investment and the impact of R&D spending on long-term growth and competitiveness are dependent on the existence of sound R&D management. To have that, you need to be able to measure performance, and understand what a well-performing R&D function should look like. Due to the increased complexity inside organisations and an unprecedently fast-changing environment, this is becoming increasingly difficult. Transparency, which is the basis for good controlling in a complex organization, is increasingly difficult to achieve.
