How to develop cutting-​​edge technologies faster

When DuPont intro­duced Nylon in the 1940s, its cre­ators had no idea that the mate­rial would be a crit­ical com­po­nent in today’s auto­mo­bile engines. It took just as long for the world’s third-​​largest chem­ical com­pany to develop a new kind of Nylon specif­i­cally for the auto industry. This story isn’t unique. Many of today’s technologies—from […]
