Achieving Meaningful Impact in R&D: This is My Way

In this talk, I will share my experience and lessons learned, from my professional career in the industrial R&D, on how to achieve meaningful impact as a researcher (or engineer, scientist, technician, innovator, ). I will highlight the importance of sense of judgment and constant balancing act: that there is a time and place for viewing everything-is-a-nail vs no-one-size-fits-all. I will also touch on the phenomena of old-fashion-making-a-comeback that is prevalent in the industry. Throughout my talk, I will draw examples from my current team, in particular our approach to innovation life cycle and some of our team dynamics.
