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.
