Perform an in-depth evaluation of your R&D or Engineering, focused on project management : 

  • Customer Value : needs, requirements and change management
  • Performance monitoring
  • Supporting processes and tools: development process, resource allocation, software and tools
  • Project activity Management – broken down further looking at:
    • Planning
    • Project team
    • Project monitoring
    • Tools and templates
    • Subcontracting and supply

Some of these areas may go beyond pure project management, and be part of the overall 'central' Research and Development processes; however, that depends on your own organisation so they are included in the assessment.
