- Connect & Develop

There was a time when P&G primarily relied on their own capabilities for generating new ideas, developing them into new products and delivering them but this was not enough as the company was very fast in out growing their innovation model. In 2000, CEO A. G. Lafley decided to do something about it. He introduced Connect & Develop. One of the rational was that the company had 7.5k R&D professionals whereas globally there were 1.5 million professionals who could be leveraged and that the company need not waste time and resources reinventing the wheel. Connect & Develop: Accelerating internal R&D by leveraging the ideas, knowledge, expertise, Know-How of a network Individuals, Institutions and Businesses from around the world.
