This blog is dedicated to improving product development at small and mid-sized firms.  I’ll cover topics of

  • Governance: top level management of the firm’s new product investment, including allocating resources to meet business goals, assessing product opportunities, and optimizing the development portfolio.
  • Execution:  tools and methods to meet business goals with a balanced approach to risk, development cost, and project predictability.
  • Finance: financial aspects of product development, including assessing financial returns, metrics to link new product execution with business goals, realistic project status reporting, and useful tools to guide day to day project decisions that create optimum business value.
