In today’s global economy, companies have no choice but to innovate, and to innovate more effectively. But what are the right processes and decisions to meet your strategic objectives?
Many companies have successfully invested in Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions to define and manage how to design, develop and produce products the right way, but how do companies decide which are the right products to develop in the first instance?
In this webinar, Stan Przybylinski, Vice President of Research at CIMdata, will focus on the problems faced by companies trying to optimize this essential business process, and will provide insights from a recent study with industry practitioners around the globe.
Key learnings for attendees from this webcast are:
- How companies should assess and plan their actions to meet corporate strategic objectives;
- How to make fact-based decisions on which initiatives in product, services, processes, or infrastructure innovations should be approved, and;
- How to make optimal decisions to balance portfolio and project investments between line extensions, new-to-the-market products, and risky ventures.
