Management of Research and Development
During the course, students will learn how to map the organization’s ecosystem - its ARENA- to find the startup’s sweet spot. The Arena is used to crystallize the strategy and translate it into tasks. Students will also practice forecasting sales/value using Logistic Regression, and estimate the value of the venture to intensify the value creation. Throughout the course, various methods and practices will be taught, to name a few, the Pareto methodology for effective use of resources, the GE/Mckinsey model for effort focusing, the control cycle for process improvement, and Bottleneck management. Moreover, the examples that will be introduced are from personal experience and presentations by the world’s leading CEOs.
