Product innovation begins with a strategy and ends with the successful launch of a new product or service. A dynamic gated process practice organizes the process into a series of activities (stages) and decision points (gates).

In this one-hour webinar, Sopheon CTO Paul Heller explores the practices followed by innovation leaders spanning multiple industries to achieve cross-functional rigor, together with agility, to speed commercially successful product innovations and technology developments to market.

Session highlights include:

  • How, if executed correctly, gated decision-making can reduce risk and create funnels not tunnels, challenge status quo processes that need to evolve to be more adaptable, and infuse “Lean” processes into innovation planning.

  • The importance of optimizing scorecards cross-functionally and how to evaluate them, plus why skipping post-launch reviews is detrimental to capturing learnings for the future.

  • How to recognize and avoid a financially biased motivation to get a product launched.

  • How the Accolade® enterprise innovation management solution’s easy-to-use tools with embedded proven best practices enable you to focus on key projects that have the greatest strategic fit and value.
