With its field-tested, step-by-step framework, the book provides managers with new strategies to assess and realign their current R&D operations; determine which products are most worthy of resource allocation; design and implement a portfolio management process; maximize the value of their portfolios; and recognize and solve challenges as they arise. This edition reports on the most current research; offers new insights on gathering and analyzing data; and showcases the practices of product market leaders, including, Pfizer, 3M, Caterpillar, Mobil Chemical, and Reckit-Benckiser.
