The R&D of a market leader not only has to be more efficient, but also reorganized, in order to master a technology leap while maintaining the R&D quota. Both together require a strong CTO targeting at constant innovation success.
This CTO has full cost and performance responsibility for R&D. He significantly shapes the strategic realignment and is responsible for innovation risks. He focuses R&D resources, uses synergies and low-cost locations, optimizes development depth, relocates, sells or closes departments, buys start-ups and shares innovation costs with cooperation partners. He decides on appointments and careers.
The reorganization usually requires different, often temporally staged solutions for technologies, innovations, kits, platforms, variants, applications and series support. We advise you to reorganize the R&D for the technology leap.
