Contributor Ortt, R.J. (mentor) Veeneman, W.W. (mentor) Van Beers, C.P.

The projects are often managed by means of Technology Readiness Level (TRL). However, the metrics are not available to overcome the challenge of delivering technology in time and within budget. In this thesis a method, evaluated with a case study at Fokker Aerostructures, is recommended to manage the performance of multi-disciplinary innovation projects, using TRL as a stage gate approach and standard project management practices. However, to fully address the need to manage innovation project performance, more research and effort is required to adapt the method in daily practice.
