The structured method of progressive new product development and project deployment has been tested on thousands of new product launches and is recognized worldwide as the best approach to accelerate new products to market, successfully.
Stage and gate style processes (or phase gate) are increasingly important to successful innovation. Technology consultancy Booz Allen Hamilton recently highlighted the fact that every organization listed in its ‘Global 1,000 Innovators’ report has a disciplined stage and gate style process in place.
