  5. Ideas are reviewed by a small R&D committee and selected based on multiple factors.
    • Mission value to current or new business areas.
    • Our technical experience to develop the idea.
    • Remaining budget considering other on-going projects.
  6. Once a project is selected, you will be notified and asked to have a kickoff meeting.
