“The problem with instant gratification is that it is just too darned slow”
(Dr. Jerry Caulder, Finisterre Partners)
Jerry Caulder, has been referred to as the “father of agricultural biotechnology” and has an unparalleled record of success in life sciences and agriculture. With this unique quote he captured the dilemma of a growing company or a pivotal R&D effort. “Immediately”, never seems quite fast enough. But his point is profound.
Sustained funding and commercial success both depend on speed to objective and time-to-market. Optimizing the critical path to success is complex and often depends on what you do not do as well as what you decide to do. Strategy is three dimensional. It involves the magnitude (and cost) of the goal, its direction (routing) and speed of progress.
At AgritecKnowledge, we work with your strategic plan to identify the most critical milestones, how to achieve them and most importantly how to optimize the time to success.
