Overview

Product Development and Product Life Cycle

The cycle of product development, refinement and retirement is ongoing. No organisation has ever produced a product that’s truly flawless or timeless. Improvements can and should be made on a continuous basis, in order to remain relevant and stay one step ahead of the competition. If your own products aren’t consistently improving and developing over time, those offered by your rivals will. Designing, developing and delivering successful products is all about isolating and capitalising on gaps in the market. Finding something that isn’t already being done, or doing something better. The better your understanding of the product life cycle, the easier it becomes to both gain an edge and hold onto it.

This advanced tutorial has been designed for business managers, entrepreneurs and anyone involved in product development or marketing. Explore the value of product innovation, new product development and generating the kinds of ideas that start extraordinary success stories. Study idea vetting, product development and marketing, strategy development, market testing, common reasons for product failure, the maturity stage and a full breakdown of the product life cycle.

FAQs

What does study method mean?

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At reed.co.uk courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

What are CPD hours/points?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on reed.co.uk, many of which can be completed online.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as ABC Awards and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
