Development projects seldom go according to plan.
After all, you're doing something new, something that hasn't been done before. So trying to shoehorn this new project into your existing task load is tough. Especially when you're overloaded, you don't have the right skills or enough people, and you keep getting additional tasks.
The result: Your new products or upgrades get delayed. And you fall further behind your competitors.
So you wonder if your product development project will ever show a return. Whether the risk is worthwhile. Or whether the competitive edge you were counting on will really be there when you're finished. And what your profit margin will be at the end.
How do you speed up this process?
Successful product development starts with understanding the process.
While the initial ideas may come easy, studies show that when it comes to developing new technology-based products, the success rate ranges from 1% to 35%.
The reasons range from lack of a defined process, to a lack of specific skills and manpower, to a focus on other problems. And because most companies donít have the wide range of skills to get the best ideas implemented, they end up with products that show marginal improvements, with costs that are too high.
