R&D Analysis

Many participants of Global Management Challenge ask the same question - how should we play R&D? How much should we invest? The answer is obvious. Your expenditures shouldn´t be higher than the effect of the investment expressed by improvements of your products.

But how will you know that an improvement is coming? And how will you know how much to invest to get it? Are improvements of products influenced by something else? That is exactly what this product answers. We did this analysis in our 2nd Czech round of Global Management Challenge and we played with it also during the international final. What a great feeling when you know what improvement is going to come before it really comes.

Moreover with the approach explained here you will be able to minimize the costs of your R&D while maximizing the results. And that will help you to be more effective than your competitors in Global Management Challenge.

In the R&D Analysis product you will get:

  • Analysis performed on more than 20 sets of reports from different years
  • You will see what was the most successful strategy in R&D
  • Conclusions and tips on how to achieve the same success

Analysis vs. Scenarios Data Mining

We also collected a lot of Global Management Challenge reports and pulled R&D information from them in R&D Scenarios Data Mining. The difference is that:

  • In R&D Analysis we analyze 3 scenarios on 20 sets of reports and we provide conclusions. Thus you can see how the analysis is performed and how you can do it on your own. You also get an insight on how the R&D works in GMC.
  • In R&D Scenarios Data Mining we provide you with 10x more sets of reports and 10x more scenarios. This will give you a lot of numbers to play with and benefit from them.

Please read: The Global Management Challenge organizers changed the simulator a bit in 2013/2014 edition. There are some 5 new decisions (about premium materials, subcontracting, shares issue/repurchase, factory extension and staff training), the rest is the same. In total you have to decide about 75 values while it was 66 before. The new things are rather minor, but the organizers also changed the format of the reports to a different structure. All my tools and reports work 100% perfect with the old simulation, but I unfortunatelly didn´t have time to update it for the new one. So I decided to introduce a 20% discount for everything. The manual, tools and reports are still very useful and will enhance your performance in GMC. Everything from the old simulation has the same impact in the new one. It has already been proven by some teams that bought them for this year´s edition and I personally played with it the new edition successfully. And now it is even for a better price.
