The challenge industry evidence
The Challenge – Industry Evidence

  • 75% of new product launches fail

    Source: AMR Research Report, June 2005

  • According to the American Productivity and Quality Center only 1 in 10new product concepts succeeds; 44 percent fail to meet profit objectives and 49 percent are launched late to market!

The core issues
The Core Issues

  • Products are late to market because of schedule slips and delays.

  • The impact of features and releases and interdependencies is not fully considered.

  • Product development organizations are trying to do more with less – resource constraints cause delays and impact quality.

  • Needs and requirements are not properly communicated and socialized.

  • Globalization has complicated the product development process

What needs to change
What Needs to Change?

  • Integration—of data, of people, of internal and external organizations—is critical, according to nearly 80 percent of the CEOs surveyed by IBM. Yet fewer than half say their organizations have adequate technology integration to support innovation.

  • Aberdeen has found that automating product development reduced product costs by 17.5 percent, cut design cycle time by 25 percent to 30 percent and reduced product defects 12-fold
