概要 In a difficult market environment, the development of technologically superior and novel products is an important corporate innovation strategy. The stage-gate methodology and "Product And Cycle-time Excellence(PACE)", which typify these efforts, are excellent methods for filtering many R&D themes down to only the most promising. However, they risk overlooking promising themes only to have those themes disappear, and there are concerns that the administrative review may decrease researchers' motivation. This study proposes a "boost-gate" methodology, which incorporates advice provided at gates to promote promising themes while boosting R&D activities. This methodology, implemented during R&D activity at one company, was shown to be effective. While there is no conclusive evidence at this time, the outcome still suggests that this methodology may be highly effective in promoting R&D.
