A primary responsibility of my role as Chief Technology Officer for the Ampcontrol Group of Companies, is oversight of a multi-million dollar spend each year on new product and technology development. We have no shortage of product proposals and business cases - invariably, any development bought to me meets the traditional commercial hurdles around NPV, IIR and investment payback. Similarly, I have not encountered a proposal that is not technically feasible, or requires a skill or technology that we are unable to acquire or access. By far the most difficult challenge is to see beyond technical elegance and accounting metrics to properly evaluate likelihood of success. Few individuals have the necessary skillsets to evaluate both technical and commercial risk, subsequently guiding a development to turn an idea into an innovative product.
