    Audio Session: Wednesday, December 6, 2006 1:00pm

    In this audio session Eugene Kania describes how to create a Lean Project Portfolio – one that is high-value, achievable and executable. Kania demonstrates methods for mapping the risks and rewards associated with projects, for prioritizing elements in a portfolio and for understanding the tradeoffs involved. Kania describes a simple tool for resource planning which helps to diminish the work-in-process in the portfolio. He also describes how to use critical chain and buffers to help execute the projects within the portfolio. Kania and his colleagues have moved beyond theory, testing these methods with a number of companies, which have enjoyed greatly increased throughput, with a decrease in cycle time; these portfolio methods also resulted in greater productivity and an improvement in job satisfaction.

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

    Research | Posted: 2008-04-15

    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. (7 pages)
