For Senior R&D Executives

Take Your Company to the Next Level with SEN

You Don’t Have To Do It Alone

Benefit from the insights of other senior R&D executives who have been down a similar path already

Vice Presidents of R&D and other senior product development executives face a multitude of challenges in today’s environment. In addition to keeping on top of the latest advances in technology and innovation, today’s top-performing senior R&D executives are the strategic partners to their CEOs and company boards of directors.

Senior Executive Networks provides an experienced network and tools for R&D executives to excel, think more strategically and add significant value to their companies' product development. We place R&D executives into groups with peers in their industry (who are not direct competitors) who have the same job responsibilities and comparable levels of complexity.

Each peer group is professionally facilitated which allows members to exchange expertise, benchmark operational metrics and discuss current and future industry trends.

Here are a few samples of topics our members will discuss at upcoming meetings:

  • Multi-Year Product Development Planning Processes
  • R&D/NPD/Operations Organizational Structures – Which Ones Best Support Project Execution?
  • R&D Strategic Planning Practices
  • How Can R&D Help Sales Close More Deals on New & Innovative Products?
  • What are Companies Doing to Creatively Improve Product Development?
  • Leading R&D Metrics – How Do Know If You Are On Track?

Upcoming Meetings
  • April 25-26, 2024 | Kansas City, MO
  • December 5-6, 2024 | Orlando, FL
  • Alternative dates & locations are available upon request
