Looking at the current RandD business model, Dr. Richard M. Bayney, Vice President of Portfolio Planning for Johnson and Johnson, will be discussing issues such as; 'When Does It Make Sense To Begin Investing In A Project?'; 'How Often Should You Re-Assess The Viability Of A Project?'; 'When Is It Appropriate To Walk Away From A Sunken Investment?'. Moderated by Dave Zuckerman, President of Customized Improvement Strategies, the webinar will outline portfolio requirements and needs within the current RandD business model. Dr. Bayney will also address the portfolio implications of terminating projects early and often. ExL's May 17th webinar presents arguments that assess whether or not early pain in the process can be offset by sustainable gain and will look into the strategic and economic impact of failing smart and early.
