About this practice
Success in the marketplace requires an executable product development strategy and a precise fast track development process. The key to our client service is our seamless integration of strategy with development—on a product or service scale.
A product development strategy provides the framework to orient a company's development projects as well as its development process. There is no one right strategy for a company. The strategy takes into account the company's capabilities (strengths, weaknesses and core competencies), the competition's capabilities (strengths, weaknesses, core competencies and strategy), market needs and opportunities, goals, and financial resources.
As a starting point to develop a product development strategy, we help our clients determine their primary strategic orientation. The client must recognize that it cannot be all things to all people and that it must focus on what will distinguish it in the market place.
We follow a Blitzkrieg Commercialization Strategy because it cuts development time in half and gets you there with less cost and at the desired quality. Our clients benefit by using the most efficient, lowest cost and highest quality development process. The accelerated development process along with its tools substantially reduces time-to-market while improving productivity, quality and costs. At the end of the day, our clients achieve a significant advantage by launching superior products ahead of the competition.
