Technology-intensive firms need to organize their R&D on a global scale. This is an important and complicated task that requires an explicit model and a thorough evaluation. Due to the complexity of the decisions about the global R&D organization and interrelations among the underlying issues, a structural approach is recommended. A detailed study of global R&D projects presented in the literature is used for structuring the problem with the aid of cognitive mapping. Based on this, two qualitative approaches: the Roberts model and the WINGS method are applied to and the most suitable solution.
