Summary of Expertise:

Listed with other top experts in: 

Expert built a large and widely-lauded business and technology intelligence organization from nothing. First, he started and ran a technology scouting operation that was benchmarked frequently and delivered early warning of competitive threats, collaborative R&D to develop new technologies, partnerships, licenses, early identification of trends, and improved productivity through utilizing external developments and capabilities. He then added intelligence analyses that guided decisions to start new platforms, change business strategies, select new offerings, evaluate partners and acquisitions, choose technologies, position vs. competitors and competitive offerings, and more. The organization's success with technology intelligence created a demand for business intelligence, which grew to become the majority of the effort. Expert also produced information offerings, including company profiles, market screens, landscapes, and other critical information for risk assessment, regulatory compliance, litigation, patent filing, market entry, and other key decisions.

Expert leveraged his work in intelligence into a knowledge of decision-making techniques that produced consistent acceptance of the intelligence analysis conclusions and recommendations. He modified, developed, and implemented decision techniques. He created and ran a company-wide Community of Practice on decision-making.

Expert has been published in peer-reviewed journals on multiple aspects of strategic technology planning. He has performed many analyses of various metrics to determine effectiveness of the R&D organization. These include tracking and analysis of new products, competitive R&D investment analyses, trends identification, project prioritization, and portfolio analyses.

Expert served as Manager, Technology Outreach, identifying strategic partners and negotiating and operating collaborative research programs. He formed relationships with small and large companies, universities, foreign organizations, and government labs, including joint development agreements, CRADAs, and licenses.
