Abstract

Discussing the research and development strategy of Hewlett Packard, senior vice president of research, Dick Lampman, recently said: “Ultimately the responsibility of R&D is to generate profitable growth for the company. For the customer, the test is about how we create value for them – why would people want to buy what we sell and how do we reduce its costs? The mission for R&D hasn’t changed – but there’s more pressure on all these dimensions.” It was a simple but pertinent point.
