It's estimated that half a trillion dollars is spent worldwide each year on such efforts. Technology Valuation Solutions + CD-ROM offers a methodology along with illustrative cases for valuing the profitability and risk of R&D projects. A companion to Boer's earlier work, The Valuation of Technology (0-471-31638-5), this book provides additional material that will help readers assess a wide variety of projects and business scenarios. In addition to the in-depth case studies, this book includes a CD-ROM featuring valuation templates that readers can customize for their own individual needs. F.
