About the event

“Mastering the development of customer solutions in ecosystems”


What does the future of R&D look like in terms of an overall solution?
This is a high-impact topic that R&D executives as well as leaders responsible for transformation, change, or innovation programs currently have to address. Of course, no one can see into the future, but we can observe and analyze trends, tendencies, and probabilities. Gain new insights and, with colleagues from various high-tech industries, take a look at today’s product development in the context of future challenges. The agenda will be announced soon.

More details

What is the topic of the R&D Management Conference 2022?

Many companies face major global challenges: Due to increasing digitization and connectivity of products, the sole product on its own is moving into the background for customers. Customer satisfaction is more and more determined by the customer experience along the customer journey. The product is part of an overall solution (“system of system”), which brings new challenges for R&D organizations.

The customer experience and business model become dependent on developments of players outside their own known sphere of influence. Organizations need to open up on the product side and to partners in ecosystems. Architectures enabling connectivity with other products and services, being robust against future changes and new technologies need to be developed.

R&D executives need to identify the right levers for the future, give strategic direction, provide the right impulses, and lead the way for their organizations.


What to expect at our R&D Management Conference?

At our R&D Management Conference, we want to share and discuss practices for the successful development of customer solutions. We will focus on answering the following questions:

  1. How to setup an R&D that delivers customer solutions (and not “only” products)?
  2. What are successful practices on developing customer solutions and architectures?
  3. How to be innovative in this environment?
  4. What is the impact on the value chain and the role of the players along the value chain?
  5. How to setup a healthy co-development with partners?
  6. What are the key challenges to overcome? And how to lead through the transformation?

Take this opportunity to spend a day in focused and comprehensive discussions and insightful presentations with top R&D executives and leaders! The R&D Management Conference 2022 will be held in Englisch.
