New Product Development and Innovation

The concepts and tools covered in this course will dramatically improve new product and service success rates, reduce costly lead times, redesigns, and software patches, and eliminate service headaches after launch.

You will learn the traditional Stage Gate and Design for Lean Six Sigma DMADV approaches to new product development (NPD), as well as Disruptive Innovation, Design Thinking, Agile and Lean techniques for rapid iterative prototyping, Design Sprints, and emerging NPD best practices. In addition, we’ll show you how to lead innovation, manage the NPD pipeline, employ tools that you and your team can use to invent breakthrough designs and solve tough engineering challenges, and use data-driven market research and problem solving tools to discover unmet and unspoken market needs ahead of the competition.

You’ll participate in interactive presentations, see examples from other B2B and B2C companies from around the world, redesign your own company’s NPD process, and work on inventing and designing your company’s next great new product, service, or business model. Plus, you’ll apply the tools and concepts directly in class while receiving instructor coaching and consulting, and leave with a roadmap to confidently launch your next new product, service, or process.

Who Should Attend

Chief innovation officers, new product development directors and engineers, product managers, quality directors and professional, project managers, business analysts, continuous improvement professionals, decision makers that are involved in the strategic planning of new products, services, and processes, as well as entire NPD teams.
