NPD organizations are turning to methods traditionally used for software development – like Scrum, Agile and Lean Start Up – to drive innovation and get products to market more efficiently. But are they right for your kind of products? And how can you adapt them to make them work for your business?
In this 30-minute webinar, Dr. Robert G. Cooper – “father” of the Stage-Gate process and innovation guru – explains how many leading manufacturing firms are blending Agile methodologies with their existing processes to stunning results. He’ll describe how this Agile-Stage-Gate methodology makes processes more adaptive and flexible, and more agile and responsive to customers, resulting in better products and accelerated time-to-market.   
Attendees will learn how:
  • This next generation, idea-to-launch system works and the components that comprise it
  • To adapt and modify traditional Agile methods to suit manufactured products in businesses from food to machinery
  • To organize your team and alter your business culture to foster innovative product development
  • Leading firms around-the-world are successfully implementing this methodology
