R&D’s vision is to Innovate Boldly for People and Planet, underpinning our purpose and sustainability goals – and driving profitable growth through our Business groups. In order to achieve this vision, the RDLT has identified the Digital Transformation as a strategic enabler thus a multi-year program leading up to the desired digitally transformed end-state of R&D has been created and is to be implemented.
This desired R&D digital transformation will require a streamlining of the development & deployment processes that deliver data analytics, simulation, optimization & compliance models/tools & visualizations. R&D has already experienced a significant uptake of the first generation of these models/tools and virtual simulations, which have provided clear proof of the value our people can create from combining digital technology, data and advanced modelling capabilities to increase speed, efficiency, quality and impact of our innovations. In addition, there is a growing opportunity to integrate some of these digital technologies into consumer-facing propositions to deliver value beyond the physical product and thereby enhance the overall consumer experience.
In order to deliver this vision we need to step up our ambition in Technology, Data and Talent as the 3 Digital Enablers that will drive our priorities and investments:
Technology: IT systems, digital tools and analytical models used to create more efficient & effective ways of working; facilitating innovation opportunities by codifying scientific & engineering knowledge into algorithms for reformulations, claims substantiation, process optimisation, etc. Data: Product, Process and Consumer related data generated internally, or harnessed from external sources, required to deliver faster and bigger innovation. Talent: New R&D skills around data science, modelling, advanced analytics and simulation, as well as digital consumer propositions and business models.
This transformation will require a new culture of ‘digital first’ to realise the vision of Science = Digital Technology. Standardising processes that do not create differentiation will be critical to reduce complexity and drive ROI from Digital investments. The R&D Leadership will be instrumental at shaping this new mindset, setting clear expectations, reskilling teams and ultimately ‘own’ this transformation.
