A great idea does not guarantee great profits. If a company&#39;s R&amp;D dollars are going to pay off in profitable products and technologies, it needs a strategy that not only makes markets, but also beats the competition. This program presented a depth of challenges that extend from R&amp;D to manufacturing, engineering, project management, and new ventures, and provided an innovative and powerful approach to developing technologies and products that people want to buy. The program material also explored ways to link those technologies and products with a company&#39;s business strategy.</p>
