Fewer than 5% of new product development efforts succeed. Only 1 in 9 new product launches are successful. Meanwhile projects are late and over budget, customers’ needs go unmet, and new products fail to sell. Lean product development was developed by Danaher Corporation 40+ years ago to resolve these specific problems with traditional product development techniques. Through improvements to the front-end innovation process, better voice-of-the-customer, streamlined development process steps, careful waste elimination, and effective team communication, LPM fills in the gaps that other techniques leave behind. This 1-day class will provide a foundational understanding of the Lean Product Development methodology as well as specific tools that participants can implement immediately.
