Tireless Communication: Experts Share the State-of-the-Art in Product Development

Overview

This overview of the Management Roundtable’s April 2008 PD IMPACT conference summarizes a range of presentations which reflect the current state of Product Development across industries. Presenters from such firms as Texas Instruments, Boeing, Boston Scientific, Medtronic, Kimberly-Clark, Honeywell and MEDRAD discussed roadmapping, portfolio management, co-development, open innovation and many other topics of current interest to R&D and product development managers. Issues around managing shared networks and anticipating markets and trends emerged as particularly important themes. Expert practitioners reported that much of the challenge of product development today is engaging these invisible resources and networks to achieve innovation. A variety of tools can facilitate that process; but, at the heart of it all, there is people – communicating tirelessly and incorporating lessons learned into the next iteration.
