The ability of officers, managers, and key professionals to direct and make their organizations productive through metrics and measures is the focus of the ninth R&D - Product Development Metrics Summit to be held April 28-30, 2009 in metro Boston.

The Metrics Summit is a series of 3 seminars, focused on 3 major areas of importance to R&D executives and managers.

The first seminar [Measuring Product Development II) - April 28] is focused on the issues that top management has to deal with that are a bit squishy and hard to quantify. The topics span the subjects of setting hurdle rates, assessing risk and complexity, tradeoff analysis, measuring capacity, and assessing overall financial performance.

The second seminar [Proactive and Predictive R&D Metrics (PPRD) - April 29 AM] is focused on the three different stages of developing early, predictive metrics that will enable managers to foresee issues on the horizon or to know that success is in front of them.

The third seminar, is more accurately a Workshop [Product Development Metrics Portfolios (PDMP) - April 29 PM and April 30]. From start to completion, participants work in groups to develop "a set of measures suitable for measuring the entire organization and the activities within it." The course book is largely a compendium of hundreds of measures for R&D organizations across all categories of measures. The scorecard each group will create will contain a comprehensive set of measures for the R&D organization as a whole at the top officer level. This portfolio of metrics will be suitable to pass the necessary metrics to the CEO that are needed by the corporation.

The Summit will be led by Bradford L. Goldense, NPDP, CMfgE, CPIM, CCP an accepted expert on both R&D metrics and rapid product development, supported by others from the GGI Team.
