    An R&D evaluation method is described. Its development was conditioned by an earlier review of other methods and by certain local requirements. Although referencing a chemical-business system, the concept, and much of the procedure, can be applied to other R&D fields. Four separate and fairly simple computer programs are involved. The first three concern capital and operating cost (or inco... View full abstract»

    Project SAPPHO, which studied differences between success and failure in innovation, produced information both on the roles played by individuals in the innovation process and on the characteristics of those associated with success. Although the data do not permit as detailed an analysis as other studies which have concentrated specifically on gathering information about people, they do enable som... View full abstract»
