Data-Driven R&D for Consumer Products

How consumer product organizations can transform the R&D function from a cost center to a growth engine

The success of consumer product (cp) companies has always been based on a relatively simple formula: delivering the right product at the right time.

Over time, that model has become increasingly hard to achieve due to market complexity, increased competition and rapidly changing consumer preferences.

For many CP organizations, it has become impossible to deliver the right products at the right time if they are relying on traditional R&D processes and systems.

Data-driven R&D for consumer products is a new offer from Capgemini that helps Consumer Product brands dramatically improve the scope, integration, speed and success of their R&D function—transforming R&D from a cost center to a value driver.
