Understanding Research and Development (R&D)
The term R&D is widely linked to innovation both in the corporate and government world or the public and private sectors. R&D allows a company to stay ahead of its competition. Without an R&D program, a company may not survive on its own and may have to rely on other ways to innovate, such as engaging in (M&A) or partnerships. Through R&D, companies can design new products and improve their existing offerings.
