The Stage-Gate product development process
23 July 2020, 15:00 - 16:30
Developing successful technology products is so much easier with the right systems in place. The most important development system is a solid Product Development Process (PDP), which if done correctly, will improve both continuity and good communication in the development team while retaining the flexibility and innovation that are required for a competitive industry. We will review the widely used Stage-Gate Process, and provide a template that will enable you to implement it quickly at your company.
