Project management of research and development projects or activities that take place within the R&D department requires a specialised project management resource. In essence, the traditional R&D Manager would have the skills, capabilities and specialist focus on the subject matter of the research in hand, however in recent times, there has been an increased demand on seeing improvements in the R&D management of the research projects. Due to the importance of research and development and its place in driving an organisation’s competitive edge and improvements to the bottom line position; the emphasis on improving management capability has become increasingly prominent in recent times.
