Innovation and research breakthroughs give birth to opportunities for organisations, enabling them to establish new markets, expand their portfolio and determine their success over  time. Allocations of R&D spend by an organisation are critical decision points that boost the likelihood of unlocking potential and transform years of scientific and technical trials into corporate profits.

Increasingly, strategy executives have learned to expect great things from an R&D function by allowing agility and flexibility within the strategic priorities of the business should a breakthrough achievement be recognised.  Research and development leaders play a critical role in developing new and innovative approaches to solve the biggest challenges faced by society, businesses and ecosystems.
