Innovation and R&D Management Department: A Catalyst of Future Value

Innovation is at the core of the transformations of the company and is claimed by most of the managers, from managerial innovation up to product innovation.

The principal challenge of Innovation and R&D Management is to find a balance between investments, openings bringing future growth, and disruption/changes of the ecosystem. Its legitimacy resides specifically in its ability to effectively manage the innovation strategy and to provide methods that create real and measurable results. It also takes root in its ability to include internal energies while remaining attentive to worldwide research work.

R&D and Innovation Management Offices play an essential role in creating future products and services. General management departments are attentive to the risks related to investments in R&D from which they expect the best short-term profitability. In this context, R&D Management departments must prove that investments bring growth and new openings. As a consequence, they direct their activities with an increased attention on the development cycle, the time-to-market, the ROI and additional financing sources.

We note, for example, that 85% of companies have a management of the Research Tax Credit, a key source of financing of innovation in France, that is still immature. (source: Myinnovationboard, benchmark Ayming of more than 1,500 directions of innovation)
76% of Innovation Offices state, furthermore, that they understand well the challenges of financial management and that they take them into account (source DAF/DRD Ayming Observatory)


“The image of the DRD as an insane genius, off-budget and unmanageable is for me a false image, a cliché, just like an image of DAF which would be opposed to any initiative if it does not show a ROI under 1 year. ”
Olivier Stéphan, DGA Finances & Support Functions, Visiativ

In an open environment where open innovation is key, it is the responsibility of the R&D and Innovation offices to open up to any external opportunity:

Participation in collaborative research projects, identification of new partners and market openings. It is their responsibility to take on the role of communicator internally and externally that knows how to obtain value from the results of its work.

This finding also prevails in the internal framework:

It is, in fact, the responsibility of the Innovation office to cooperate more effectively with all stakeholders of the company to gain in efficiency: Marketing, Operations, Production, Transformation, Information Systems Management Office, HR Management Office therefore in cross-cutting nature as well as with private and public partners of all sizes.
